Wow, y’all mad.

Not really.

Just mildly tired as fuck of the bullshit Boston/ Yankee/ Dodger fan/ et all having to make the effort to trash the Houston franchise, regardless of relevance or reasonable standards.

 

So fucking ready to have games played.   The real ones.

Yes,  your post on UT message board with a sub forum on baseball with a dedicated thread on the Houston Astros has got me mad.

How would that work for secondary ticket sales?

good question.

Just post a legal notice at each entry:  "MLB is not responsible for any exposure to communicable diseases you , just like we haven't been for the past 150 years."

That should totally cover gross negligence.

Just like someone getting hit by a ball.  There is zero expectation of a sterile environment, save for the fact it is a money driven environment...and well, lawyers.

 

Absolute safety is the new bar...  I'd attend, either way if available.

 

Now back to baseball.

Yeah, pretty sure they could write it off as assumed risk, same as a foul ball.  You come into any crowd right now and get sick, you're not gonna be able to sue the organizers of the crowd.

Those who do not make the Astros’ 30-man opening day roster will continue training at the University of Houston’s baseball facility — dubbed the team’s “alternate site” for the 2020 season.

Pitcher Josh James did not report to Houston on Wednesday with what general manager James Click described as "personal reasons not related to COVID.”

James was the only member of the Astros’ 56-man player pool who was not expected to report by Wednesday’s deadline. Click said the team expects James “to be here soon.”

Glad we have him locked up for the next 5 years. I guess the Boras hire is primarily to ramp up his endorsements

Man, I got tanked at 2 of those last year. Would love if they brought back Thirsty Thursdays for 2021, but I doubt they're gonna pass up any additional revenue in the near future. Although, I would be curious to see the economics on discount beers if they actually increase sales enough to offset the price reduction.

if you follow collin mchugh on instagram, im hoping the astros have a similar set up to the red sox :

suites were turned into private locker rooms, the concourse is now batting cages and work out areas - spaced out, portable shower units, the training room is open air in the outfield seats.

I get the hate but to act like Astros were/are only mlb to use cameras is absolutely the dumbest.
