Weekly Wrap Up: Sprint To The Finish With No Finish Line?

When we first heard that there was going to be a baseball season, what was the first thing that came to mind? It was joy for me. But after that, once the frosting fell off what did the cake look like? Danger.


Playing during a pandemic is not only challenging, but it requires for everyone to be in sync, following rules, and not getting COVID-19. When you see guys like Miles Mikolas going out and getting his team sick, I just feel sick to my stomach. As mentioned in tons of studies, sports keep people sane. I am sure that is the case for many people reading.


When you see people going out and risking the season for everyone else, risking contracts for everyone else, and risking SANITY for everyone else, again I feel sick to my stomach.


But what if there is no finish line in sight? What if this it? What if in 3 days, the season gets cancelled? And while I don't feel that RIGHT NOW the league is in immediate danger of shutting down, I feel that it is a very real possibility.


Not only would people who work for the game go on another furlough, but it would affect sanity of human beings.


So I beg to players, please save the season. Please.
