Donít think they will cancel, I think they will shorten the season and start in May.
If it takes corona to go back to a balanced schedule, I will be grateful for  Corona-chan. :uguu

Maybe they'll just play in empty stadiums. It was already done last year by the Blue Jays.

Manfred is a little bitch, no way these owners would allow the season to be suspended.  Empty stadiums would be as far as it goes I bet

I donated all of my Astros stuff to charity.

I can't cheer for them anymore and have barely paid attention to their moves despite the season coming up. I love baseball too much and I can't watch the team anymore. I see the players entirely differently and I can't stand the front office.

I followed the Astros seriously starting in college, when they were absolute dog shit and had the nickname of the Lastros. I still loved and followed the team despite that, so the 2017 win after literally a decade of cheering the team was one of my most cherished moments in my life, especially after the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. I went to my first Astros game when I was a wee, little kid. Baseball was the first sport I played and the sport my dad taught me. I cherish the sport too much to continue to the root for this team and I treat our WS win with a giant asterisk. Its come to a point where I have to choose: the Astros or baseball. I've chosen baseball. It is no longer my team for the foreseeable future.

This may seem drastic but it's what I have to do to continue loving the game.

I'm moving to NY and the Mets were already my second team and I followed them casually since they're the Astros' sister team and are in another league. Since their stadium will be 20 minutes away from me I've decided to change teams.

I know this is sacrilege but in this case it's what I have to do to continue enjoying baseball.

Sorry for outbursts earlier in the thread, it was me coming to terms with massive heart break.

It's fine. You picked a team in your immediate area and of the opposite league, that's pretty standard in terms of shifting teams allegiance. I had a friend who grew up in San Diego and rooted for the Chargers, who switched to the Rams when the Chargers moved to L.A. a couple of years ago. The somewhat ironic thing is that he lived within 15 minutes of driving to the Stubhub center/Dignity Health stadium that they played in for a couple of seasons. Being a fan means making personal rules to get you though something at times.

Mets fans are passionate and know their baseball. NY is an incredible baseball market. I'm not cheering for no damn Yankees or the fucking Rangers. Old blood dies hard. If not for our rivalry I'd go with the Dodgers because although I sold all of my Astros hats to charity I still have Brooklyn Dodgers hats. I love that teams history and :bow to the legacy of Jackie Robinson. Dodgers were going to be close, but I don't want to be a dick rider fan either. Those dudes have been in so many World series matchups lately that a championship is inevitable. It'd be as bad as picking the Yanks. I could also go with the Giants, my dads team.

It was actually really really good, we went to the Porsche bar and grill, cost $40 to get in but they had a decent buffet out including charcuterie which I ate a ton of.  We both got a really good burger with some kind of bacon jam and it was amazing.  Other random things I just remembered about that game, Josh Donaldson spent a ton of time talking to the 3rd base umpire and Albies and AcuŮa kept throwing gum at Ahmed Rosario from the dugout and heíd just pocket it each time.  Oh and for some reason the Mets did a weird ass shift where they left the short stop on the left side of the infield and had the 3rd baseman playing the 2nd base position and the 2nd basemen in short right field.  Rosario had to cover 3rd on a play and looked super lost.

Honestly Mets fans don't even have it that bad. You've won it all twice, and didn't have to chest to do it. You've appeared in the world series a total of six times and you're almost in the playoffs in recent years, although they haven't made it in a while. You have it pretty good despite the tragedies. Imagine a team as bad as 2012 Astros.

I was born in 86 so the only teams Iíve seen go to the World Series were the 2000 and 2015 teams and we lost both in the same fashion blowing what should have been a game 1 win and having it all crumble from there.  The Mets were pretty god damn bad in the early to mid 90ís but I donít remember much about those teams at all.  The Mets heartbreak is always about what could have been rather than just being plain ole bad, Beltran watching the curve from Wainwright in 06 to the collapses of the 07 and 08 Mets.  I wouldnít trade it for the world though, when the Mets are good and get into the post season itís crazy.  I was at game 1 of the 2015 NLCS against the cubs and Iíd never experienced anything like that energy in person at a game before.  It was nearly freezing and windy as hell but the stands were packed and Matt Harvey pitched 7.2 innings and barely made any mistakes.  Still one of my favorite Mets memories.

As much as I donít think baseball should be played this year I canít say that Iím not excited for it to return.

I've been watching the Mariners intra squad stuff which has been pretty weird, but tonight I booted up MLB.tv and caught the last inning of a couple of the exhibitions between teams from other cities. I dunno, it still feels wrong as fuck. I'm gonna feel the same way later this week when the "real" games start and when hoops starts as well.

I still don't see either sport making it into next month.

I'm so pissed we have to play in Texas (two different cities no less!) and Arizona. At least we don't have to go to Florida.

Cautiously optimistic, but I don't think the league gets through the second week of August.
