    Heard on tonight’s local news that Jordan Hicks opted out of this season. Probably a great decision. He is a Type 1 diabetic so he will qualify for full salary. Also, it insures his are will be ready in ’21. I would not doubt that the Cards encouraged him to opt out.

    So Kozma is a more notable former Card than Pham…..

    It may just be a coincidence but every player on that opt out list is a NL player. Ross is a free agent.

    For reference, there are about 90 umps, so this is about 1/8 of them sitting out.

    Seems like a pretty important question to have not thought through in advance. Even a dummy like me had wondered about this during the downtime.

    OK, apparently Bowden was straightened out.

    More clarification. It depends on who you are talking about. (Leave it to the media to explain the rules to the “GM”!)

    NOT confirmed, but this very well could be the same place the missing three Cardinals are in… (We have no info on whether Reyes and Gallegos even have the virus, let alone whether they are symptomatic or not.)

    This is supposed to be one of the two Opening Day showcase games, but they might not be approved to play in DC. Sounds like a really bad idea playing in Florida right now, so see you in High-A Fredricksburg.

    Austin Meadows is one of the Rays’ top players. The former Pirates OF prospect is 25 years of age.

    Not surprisingly, the views vary by the expert asked…

    It should be clear that those 80 positives were not caused by people catching Covid in the camps. They already had contracted it prior to reporting.

    Did the MLPA and MLB agree to waiving hipaa rights for players? Seems that a lot of teams are acknowledging covid positives in violation of the law.

    No. The league & teams have stated they will release a player’s name only after the player consents.

    They have also said it’ll be easy to figure out in some cases, i.e., if a player goes on the IL without an apparent injury and no specified cause, it certainly raises suspicion.

    Hence this is likely why Gallegos and Reyes’ extended absences remain unexplained while Cabrera, Sanchez and Montero’s were announced. The former two did not provide consent and the latter three did. No laws are being broken.

    Dr. Zach Binney?? Dr. Amesh Adalja?? Dr. David Hamer?? How do the pundits manage to dredge up these self-proclaimed experts whose opinions matter nothing to most people.

    Even if the BJs play nearby in Buffalo I wouldn’t think the players with homes in Toronto could just go home after the games.
