Doom P*rn or Death Knell: Klapisch Says It’ll Take ‘Miracle’ to Save Season

Like the weather in the Midwest, all you’ve got to do to get a different take on the viability of MLB’s 2020 season is wait five minutes. Hope waxes and wanes with the same fickleness as the forecast, though the storm clouds on the horizon have never quite blown away. As such, it can be difficult to discern the earnest predictions from the clickbait.

I have no idea whether the Newark Star-Ledger’s Bob Klapisch is pushing one or the other, but he tweeted Friday afternoon that, “It’s going to take a miracle to save the season.” That was preceded by a quote from someone identified as a previously optimistic party who said “Things are really bad right now.”

The latter sentiment I can understand, but requiring a miracle to make something happen? I don’t know that I buy that. Unless, of course, the owners are so dead set on fouling this up that they really will scuttle the season over less than $11 million per team.

Ian Happ and his roommates are driving back to Chicago from the Phoenix area, which seems like a positive sign. In yet another potential signal of a season to come, broadcasters have been told they’ll call away games from their home parks or remote studios. Perhaps most indicative of baseball’s need to start its season, nearly every other league home and abroad has figured things out.

It would be a monumentally poor decision to shut the season down only to see other leagues get underway this summer. So if figuring out how to get billionaires to part with a few million dollars is a miracle, well…actually, that would be kind or miraculous. Fingers crossed.
