Matt and Derek join Matt to discuss the latest in the ongoing saga to start the 2020 MLB season. We begin by going over the latest news including Rob Manfred’s guarantee there will be a season and the player union’s social media campaign to back the owners into a corner. Then we discuss the very strained relationship between players and owners, the modern-day role of the commissioner, and we ponder if there will be a 2020 season. Unfortunately, we can’t get beyond talk about the business of baseball. Hopefully, one day soon we can talk about the games on the field that take place in a safe environment.

We are adhering to the shelter in place guidelines of New York State and recording remotely. We will be doing so for as long as the “shelter in place” order remains. We’re talking over Skype so we apologize in advance for any sound quality issues.

The podcast is now available on Apple PodcastsSpotify, and Stitcher so please subscribe, drop a five-star rating, and spread the word. We are working on having the podcast on Stitcher as well. We hope this gives you some distraction from all the craziness in the world right now. 

Again, we apologize for any sound quality issues. We’re making the most of a tough situation as all of you are. Please don’t forget to subscribe to the pod and spread the word.

We hope you and your families remain safe and healthy. See you again next week.
