Rob Manfred “Not Confident” That We Will Have Baseball This Year

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

The Major League Baseball clown show continues this evening with Commissioner Rob Manfred pulling an about face.

It was last Wednesday that Manfred told Karl Ravech that he was 100% certain that we would have a season in some way, shape, or form. Today, however, he told Mike Greenberg that he’s not confident that baseball returns in 2020.

Via Jeff Passan at ESPN:

Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred told ESPN on Monday he’s “not confident” there will be a 2020 baseball season and that “as long as there’s no dialogue” with the MLB Players Association, “that real risk is going to continue.”

In a conversation with Mike Greenberg for ESPN’s “The Return of Sports” special, Manfred walked back comments made to ESPN last week, when he said “unequivocally we are going to play Major League Baseball this year” and pegged the likelihood at “100 percent.”

“I’m not confident. I think there’s real risk; and as long as there’s no dialogue, that real risk is gonna continue,” Manfred said when asked if he was confident there would be a season.

Well fuck me.

Not sure what else to say. The powers that be are doing irreparable harm to the game.

  1. Trump rallies, working, getting a haircut, going to the beach, going to church, are all things that should be avoided, to stem the spread of the scary virus.

    But chimping, looting, rioting, protesting for imaginary state persecution of black men, that’s ok.

    Remember Dems think you are stupid or a naive little child and have no common sense.

  2. R.I.P. Baseball….

    You were like that know it all elderly relative. Can’t exactly say you are sad to see them go. But you knew it was coming.

  3. Can’t have the players “risking their lives”. So these pussies stay home and make no money. I couldn’t care less, sports are for men. Same with those NBA vaginas. Stay home and make nothing, who are you hurting?

  4. Silly. Trump built the best economy in history. Now he is about to sign an executive order banning police choke holds. What did Obama do again???
    Lol!

  5. Manfred went out of his way to make sure he and the owners were viewed as the villains on this one lol
