Randy and Matt join forces to discuss the latest developments on the coronavirus’ impact on MLB. What are the economic ramifications for MLB during the pandemic? Will the amateur draft face a new normal in upcoming years? Will there be minor league baseball this season? The Blog Brothers discuss those topics and ask if there is a major league team worthy of “The Last Dance” treatment.
