Bummed we lost the DH out of this. Stinks.

I'll take it.

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

I thought the DH was removed for 2021 only. Pretty sure it's part of the safety protocols for this season so it will be implemented

I hope so but I thought I saw multiple tweets saying it wasn’t going to occur.

I believe Universal DH is part of the March agreement for 2020 but not 2021.

Have had a hard time confirming this online however

Took a stab at what a 60 game season from July 24th to September 30th could look like:

That schedule includes 12 games vs. each division opponent, 4 games vs. an interleague rival, and 2 games vs. each remaining interleague opponent.

Per ESPN, for 2020 only...

“The universal designated hitter likely would remain in place, as it's part of the health-and-safety protocol.”

They've robbed the enjoyment of this day from many, I'm sure. I would have been elated for this day a month ago; now, just indifferent.

I'm pretty happy. Leery ... but this is the first actual progress MLB related since mid-March. I think the excitement will build for a lot of people as we get closer to that opening weekend.

If huge manufacturing facilities can stay open in this country without huge spikes in cases, there is no reason why MLB, with its huge emphasis on health and safety, can't figure this out. Perhaps I'm just trying to squeeze out the last little bit of optimism I have left for baseball this year.

I'm happy we're getting a DH, as I've thought we should have one for a long time.

But, can someone explain to me how having a DH will help prevent a player from getting COVID? Seems more like something the league wanted to get implemented, so they're using COVID as a cover to get it put in place.

The explanation is simple. Now Brewer's pitchers won't get COVID while diving back into first base. [laughing]

Has anyone seen anything in if expanded rosters will be in place for this season and if so how many?

I thought it was supposed to be 30 man rosters instead of 26. And then a taxi squad of players to take from in case of injury/covid.

You know what will be kind of hilarious? When the first bench clearing brawl is about to take place and someone jumps in and reminds them that they can't do that because of social distancing requirements.

I wonder if it was the players who want the DH...

ESPN has a universal DH and that all extra innings will start with a runner on 2B.

So MLB has announced the proposed start dates, but the players still have to agree to it, correct?

I'm guessing it has nothing to do with COVID and is about having an abbreviated and rushed spring training. Pitchers can just focus on getting their arms ready and not worry about bunting, hitting, and baserunning practice. Also, it can be used as an "off day" since players didn't have their usual amount of ST time to get in shape.

At this point I am 100% indifferent. A 60 game season does not excite me at all.

My only question:

Could the players refuse to report and file litigation?
