    Everything since March 12th fits into that category.

    The Minor league cuts were going to HAVE To happen if they are cutting that many minor league teams…it was just a matter of when it was going to happen

    Companies that received PPP loans for eight weeks are going to see that eight week period expire within the next week or two, depending on when they took out the loans. I suspect there will be many employees across the nation coming off the payrolls soon, not just ballplayers. I work for a company in that situation and I know for a fact that some employees will not be returning once the loan money is depleted. Fortunately for me I am not in that category but I feel for those that are.

    Am I wrong in presuming that there will be NO minor league season this year? Doesn’t seem possible to support them with no fans in the stands. And there are proposals for major league teams to carry up to 50 players. What a mess.

    It is a very good assumption, and the player cuts now seem to put the final nail in the coffin, but there has been no formal announcement.

    David Price joins Adam Wainwright, Shin-Soo Choo and other MLB players helping out minor leaguers.

    This is true. However, the cuts are a year earlier than absolutely required. That is a year lost for at least some of these players to step up and improve their stock.

    However, the reality of no 2020 minor league season, the down revenue for MLB and the folding of resistance to the MiLB contraction plan together moved the cuts forward on the calendar. That it was apparently inevitable doesn’t make it less painful, especially for those who had been holding out slim hopes.

    They just gained a ton of my admiration and Price needed it. Now I would like to see him in a Cards uni but I know the Dodgers just got him. The Cards are keeping Springfield AA staff and game day folks paid through June. I am surprised that even the game day folks get some money but it’s all good. Now if they could just get their parking situation straightened out.

    The Royals GM had these comments. They may still release players before next summer, but do have some acceptance and appreciation of the timing and the current situation.

    Still no word on who or how many players the Cardinals cut. If a small market team like the Royals can pay their MiLB player though the season there is no reason other teams can’t do the same.

    I am disappointed to lose Soler, Woodall, and Kelly.

    In case anyone wonders, the difference between the 37 releases reported by the P-D and our 33 is four DSL players released three weeks ago we already wrote about at that time.

    I don’t understand cutting Kelly. He looked promising in his outings from the bullpen. So did Cameron Dulle.

    I agree BlackHills, completely surprised about Kelly, Dulle, and Perry DellaValle. I thought the Cardinals were pretty high on DellaValle before the suspension.

    No doubt the minor leaguers who now have no money coming in will feel it was the right thing to do.

    Lost some respect for DeWitt hearing him downplay mlb owner profitability yesterday in an interview. I wish he’d have just said “No Comment”. Article I read was on mlbtraderumors.com.

    There are other related posts on Broshuis’ twitter thread below. He does not name the organizations trying to discourage minor leaguers for filing for unemployment benefits. Some players are worried doing so would be used against them later.

    Some MLB teams are fond of using the term “optics” for how their actions appear to the public. They are taking a beating currently.

    Re: Owners comments. Isn’t it funny how someone’s preconceived notions trump what a person who should know says. People are tending to parse every word when they disagree with someone’s comments.

    If they do get unemployment, they get another $600 added onto their checks in stimulus money.
