Screw it. Let's go with a new thread. I put this in the all sports thread, but I imagine now there will be an emergency all hands meeting of the Task Force called about 6 o clock Thursday.

Our sitting president is juuuust petty enough to force Fauci to reverse on his acceptance of the invitation.

Fauci can do anything he wants during his free time.

I don't know if Trump legally can fire him for something like that or not. A lot of federal workers have civil service protections, but at some point when an employee gets high enough in the pecking order the President has more leeway to fire or demote.
And his one problem is he didn’t go to Russia that night because he had extracurricular activities, and they froze to death.

Wow, will make it much easier for Fenway employees to assault opposing relief pitchers. Why didn’t they think of this sooner?

You would think the players who had to sit in the stands for social distancing would not have to wait for the scoreboard to tell them to get indoors during a thunderstorm, but 2020.

I watched a significant portion of the Tigers-Reds game and the absence of fans in the stands didn't bother me at all.

Favorite parts:

3. Groundskeeping crew getting an entire section to hang out in
2. When batters stepped out of the box on a 2-strike count and the sound guy immediately cut the crowd noise
1. Not cringing on every rocket foul ball

Based on their 2-game run differential of -15, I think the Giants may not be a great team this season.

ETA: The other Giants’ fans in my social media feeds were asking if the Dodgers kept it real by waiting until the third inning to put up the cardboard fan cutouts, and then by taking them down in the seventh.

The cutouts are doing the same thing as many LA fans - being there just to be seen.
