FanGraphs | Craig Edwards: With COVID-19 wreaking havoc on daily life, it seems that baseball is coming around to the fact that they will be delayed until at least the end of June. This means that maybe half the season will be played, and we have no precedent to determine how many games will actually be played.

Baseball Prospectus | Daniel R. Epstein ($): Hey, I know this guy. Baseball is not going to be paying their minor league players and many arena workers, which is a travesty for an organization raking in literal billions. They only need about $18 million to make them whole, which they should do immediately.

The Ringer | Michael Baumann: With the loss of baseball, it only underscores in a world smaller than it has ever been, our society is incredibly fragile, where even the smallest things we take for granted can be taken away in a flash.
