    zenmaster got a reaction from Junkballer in Angels among teams that have experienced issues with delayed COVID-19 Tests   
    Is it hard to swing a bat in a full hazmat suit?

    That he and his wife are having their first child and he thinks each player should make their own decisions based on their personal situations.

    People need to just accept that there is a lot of unknown about the virus.  They say one thing and then a couple of weeks later say a different thing.  It doesn’t mean there’s malice.  It means that we don’t know everything and shit is confusing.  Wear a mask.  Avoid large crowds.  Particularly indoors.  Don’t be disgusting and properly clean.  Live life with the pandemic with reasonable precautions and be conscientious of others.  If everyone would just accept the masks in some necessary scenarios the transmission would be dramatically slowed. Necessary scenarios: indoors among others where good spacing is not possible at all times.  It’s not complicated.

    Most likely tested and showed no symptoms. Lots of those out there walking around and testing whole teams is going to shed some light on just how many people actually have this (or had this) but didn't show symptoms.

    I think some don't understand why some want asterisks in records books. It's not to highlight things about good players who may have missed some time due to what's going on in the world.

    Get ANY group of 30+ people together and test them all for covid right now and there's a good chance at least one will have (or had) it.

    zenmaster reacted to Duren, Duren in Coronavirus Impact   
    The over extreme panic is totally media driven. Common sense caution has morphed into paranoia by the unending fear mongering. Social psychology has many examples of crowd hysteria driven by exaggeration and misinterpreted facts.
    There is a phenomenon known as 'pattern matching' where a preconceived idea is projected onto something else felt to match that idea. Regardless if accurate or not. 
     Statistically the fatalities are a small fraction compared to other viral type causes. And if you study the quasi barbaric eating habits in China where this began it would put things in a clearer context. 
    The media are largely irresponsible, and in some cases, intentionally so. A variation of 'if it bleeds, it leads.'
    Also, do not discount the political and economic factors. And the timing. Remember the cynical "never let a crisis go to waste" statement? 
    These sports organizations are trying to be politically correct and conform to the media narrative. Safer for them than to be demonized by challenging the narrative.

    Translation: he will start throwing in a few weeks, maybe make a start or two, then feel something again, and finally announce he needs TJ. We've been through this a few times.

    Sign stealing may only help the batters directly but if you are up 4-0 in the first inning, that sure helps your pitcher.
