Sorry folks! There is not a lot of good news today. As of this writing there’s still no word on the test results for Charles Barkley. Andrew Heaney is holed up in his Arizona rental for now, but he’s contemplating his next move. The MLB players have been given the option to stay at their spring training home, their regular season home, or their offseason home.

Reports are out that the start of baseball may be delayed until Memorial Day weekend. Others are saying the delay might last until June. There won’t even be organized group workouts.

Now the MLB players themselves might end up not getting paid.
The Baseball Hall of Fame is closed. We’ve had our first player test positive for coronavirus, a minor league player from the Yankees organization. Transactions can still happen. Hunter Strickland ends up in the dumpster.
