    Troll Daddy reacted to Inside Pitch in Scott Boras pitches 162-game MLB schedule with a World Series game on Christmas   
    If they aren't playing by July, there is no 2020 season IMO.   They need to start looking at 82 game season options... this full season BS isn't going to happen.  Obviously the only reason for a full 162 game season it ensure that the players get paid for 162 games.

    Maybe that Dumbass has never spent a November on the east coast or better yet, hung out in Minnesota. Stretching the season to late October is stupid enough but crossover November to December? Scott has been doing too much medicinal and has smoked himself stupid.

    Troll Daddy reacted to AngelsWin.com in AngelsWin.com Today: Virus suggestions from THE front line   
    My dear friends & AngelsWin.com family, I don't normally post content on our Blog that is non-Angels or Baseball related, but after getting permission to interview one of our members at AngelsWin.com, it would be a disservice to all and criminal not to share. 
    What you're about to read below is from one of our own who has been on the frontline as a firefighter in LA County for 30-years and has been through the riots, more firestorms than he can ever tell you, earthquakes, and just about every single kind of call of distress that you can imagine. 
    According to our AngelsWin.com member @PattyD22: This virus is like nothing anybody has ever seen. I was exposed and had it in early February, and was sick for about 5 days. This was WAY before the media dedicated coverage on it 24/7 and long before the President and our own department even knew much about it. I’m 52 and I’m in good health, so I beat it, but I still have a residual, chronic dry cough. I'm still working my shifts and we currently have 11 guys who have tested positive so far and are under quarantine. When it’s all said and done, our medical director of the LA County Fire Dept thinks we will have anywhere between 500-1000 first responders testing positive and subsequently, we may have a few die from it.
    Disclaimer: The information provided below is from Mark Henderson, a nuclear physicist who has dealt with world diseases for some time and was Integral with the CERN in Switzerland. He is now working on nuclear fusion with the ITER project as documented in the film "Let There Be Light" which will be viewable on Amazon Prime. You should always consult with a licensed physician over any information that is passed on, you hear on the news or read online, including the content provided below.  This virus could mutate or newer tests could reveal that the practices listed below could deem unsuccessful. 
    The WHO (World Health Organization) received information from a young researcher who had been transferred from Shenzhen to Wuhan to collaborate with the task force that is fighting the coronavirus epidemic. We want to receive and willingly transmit to all of this clear, simple and accessible information, which describe exactly what it is. The virus, how it transfers from one person to another and how it can be neutralized in everyday life.
    Corona virus infection does not cause a cold with a dripping nose or catarrhal cough, but a dry and dry cough: this is the easiest thing to know.
    Consuming hot drinks such as tea, herbal tea and broth during the day, or simply hot water: hot liquids, including water consumption, helps to maintain a healthy immune system along with sufficient sleep.
    1. The virus crown is quite large (diameter about 400-500 nanometers), therefore most medical quality masks can stop it. If you are not exhibiting symptoms, wearing a mask has little value unless you are in contact with infected patients so the situation is different for doctors and health professionals who are exposed to heavy virus loads and have to use special equipment. If an infected person sneezes in front of you, three or more meters away, they will drop the virus on the ground and should prevent it from landing on you in an open-air environment. Closed quarters may require additional physical distance, so be mindful and use common sense and practice social/physical distancing.
    2. When the virus is found on metal surfaces, it survives for about 12 hours.  So when you touch metal surfaces such as handles, doors, appliances, supports on trams, etc., wash your hands well and disinfect them carefully.
    3. The virus can live nested in clothes and fabrics for about 12 hours: normal detergents and a sufficient wash cycle should help to mitigate the virus but again wash your hands before and after doing laundry if you suspect your clothes may be contaminated.
    How it manifests itself:
    1. The virus first installs itself in the throat, causing inflammation and a dry throat sensation: this symptom can last for 3 to 4 days.
    2. The virus travels through the humidity present in the airways, descends into the trachea and installs in the lung, causing pneumonia.  This step takes about 5 to 6 days.
    3. Pneumonia occurs with high fever and difficulty breathing, it is not accompanied by the classic cold.  But you may have the feeling of drowning.  In this case, contact your doctor immediately.
    How can you avoid it:
    1. Virus transmission occurs mostly by direct contact, touching tissues or materials on which the virus is present: washing hands frequently is essential. The virus only survives on your hands for about ten minutes, but in ten minutes many things can happen: rub your eyes or scratch your nose for example, and allow the virus to enter your throat ... So, for your own good and for the good of others, wash your hands very often and disinfect them!
    2. You can gargle with an antiseptic mouthwash, hot salt water or any doctor recommended solution that eliminates or minimizes the amount of the virus that could enter your throat: in doing so, you can potentially flush it before it goes down into the trachea and then into the lungs.
    3. Disinfect the PC keyboard and mobile phones.
    The new coronavirus NCP may not show signs of infection for many days, before which it cannot be known if a person is infected.  But by the time you have a fever and / or cough and go to the hospital, your lungs are usually already in 50% fibrosis and it's too late!
    Taiwanese experts suggest doing a simple check that we can do on our own every morning: Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds.  If you successfully complete it without coughing, without discomfort, a sense of oppression, etc., this is an indication that there is no fibrosis in the lungs. In such critical times, do this check every morning in a clean air environment!
    To reiterate, if you believe you have the symptoms of coronavirus, contact a trained medical doctor/physician and obtain expert advice, your health is paramount.
    Share this information with your family, friends and acquaintances, for solidarity and civic sense!

    You forgot the part where Bonds looked like a complete doofus twice in the inning.  First getting the error trying to pick up Anderson's bloop single, dropping it numerous times as if saying my precious world series ring is disappearing.  Then when he was waiving his glove in vain trying to pretend to catch up to Glaus' rocket.

    Those with guaranteed contracts do, unless there is prescriptive language in their contracts that indicate otherwise (possible I suppose in an 'Act of God' scenario).

    I don't know about "red flag" as he sucked last spring too, though admittedly not this bad. Robles also wasn't good last spring.
    I don't take a ton of stock in the bullpen numbers in ST. It's such a small sample size and most of these guys are working on specific things or trying to build their strength up. I'd be more concerned about velocity and things like that.
