To help preserve his record, a Baltimore Orioles employee orchestrated a lighting malfunction, or it happened coincidentally. Regardless, the outcome was that the game was called.

    In a serious check on guest manners, a personal friend of Costnerís, Cal Ripken, was rumored to have returned to his house after leaving for the day to play a game. He had forgotten something. Next, according to some versions, when Ripken arrived at his home, he caught Kevin Costner in his bed with his wife, Kelly. Costner is rumored to have gotten such a beating he was unable to do any publicity, just at the time he was wrapping up with 'The Postman'.
    Check out his movie 'Revenge' where he sleeps with his friends wife, earning a serious whooping and gets left for dead. Of course he doesn't die or the movie would be real short.

    I remember that one. Then he hooks his wife on drugs and uses her as a prostitute.

    Every pitcher in baseball should get Tommy John this year just to get it over with, even if you don't need it.

    You almost knew something bad was going to happen because Chris Davis was having an MVP spring training.

    Sports talk radio has gotten so stagnant here that they were talking about who they would draft from the Bad News Bears.

    I was thinking of all the baseball games I'm not going to see this year... and then I heard it was going to be postponed.

    A severely shortened baseball season, where every remaining game had to be played with sense of urgency or desperation, might get me to pay attention.

    Will the pandemic force expansion?

    https://blogs.fangraphs.com/will-mlb...s-to-covid-19/

    "When we look at the past two decades, we’ve seen baseball revenues grow, leading to more profits. We’ve also seen a windfall in the form of the sale of BAMTech that was paid to ownership; the sale of BAMTech to Disney meant payments of around $80 million to every team. Of late, we’ve also seen MLB approve investment funds taking minority interests in teams, as Ben Clemens wrote about last fall. Those investments allow owners to receive a cash infusion in exchange for giving up a small share of their club. However, every owner might not be in a position to sell off parts of their team, and some owners may wish not to let investment firms get involved with ownership. Expansion might be the only viable avenue many owners have to recoup some of the expected revenue losses this season."

    So, just a general question: how much of a shortened season are you willing to accept? Mid-May? June 1st? the All-Star Game?

    100 games.

    I think beginning mid-June, maybe even as a late at the beginning of July would be fine.

    I think we've lost at least half the season already. I'm willing to settle for any baseball.

    I'd be happy if they just re-did last year's post-season.

    They should just play through until October eliminating playoffs and world series just to let the teams recoup some lost revenue.
