Automatic TRANSCRIPT

The Wall Street journal talking about Major League Baseball will it come back when it comes back what will the money situation vis a frequent guest of ours here on the fan in New York on CBS sports radio Jared diamond joins as Jared how you doing this morning I'm hanging in there how are you pretty good pretty good well the dispute is under way we we heard the smoking Gunns memo this week where Major League Baseball said a guys you know if we do come back and there are no fans in the seats you might have to take another hair cut hi how do you think this is working out of their negotiations going on privately or is this kind of a a standoff at the moment yeah it was surprising thing about this is how little they actually have been talking in person and how much they have been talking through the media and that they have not had a formal meeting since last week the beginning of last week that's going to change soon the expectation that the league is finally going to submit to the union and economic proposal right after this holiday weekend the expectation that they're going to finally get back to the virtual negotiating table on Tuesday but the clock's ticking here because they want to be playing baseball by the fourth of July which is no doubt their goal they really have to have this done by the end of this month maybe very early in June and that only gives them about a week or so once they get back to the table yeah and spring training would start around what the middle of June June fifty cancer cell and it would be a truncated spring training hopefully guys have been working out enough so that teachers will be able to throw at least five innings but you know it's it's still you're going to see expanded rosters I'd imagine absolutely if you would be required no one thing that we've seen in other countries that are playing baseball right now like Korea and Taiwan if they have seen a lot of injuries way more than you'd expect in a typical first month of the season and they seem generally velocities down lower than you would typically expect would suggest that there was some issues with trying to return after the layout so it's going to be saying that I'm going to have to pay attention to the players would love or weeks of spring training that they're not going to get that they're probably going to get three so the solution is gonna be expanded rosters more pictures and I think bands have to expect that at least in the beginning it's not going to be the same quality of play that maybe you're used to in the major league level in terms of offense versus pitching you know we hear all the time in spring training well it takes a pitcher's longer to get ready then the haters haters can get ready in ten days maybe you know get their timing and so do you think we'll see increased offense if the season starts in early July I do think pictures are going to be behind for shore if this gets going hitters often say that as long as they get you know a few I've got ten fifteen twenty at bats against live pitching they're pretty much good to go pictures on the other hand are so used to that very regimented schedule leading to build up they're always working backwards from opening day but now for months they've had no idea when opening day would be every single pictures in a different situation in terms of how much work he's been able to do some of are probably still built out probably are ice cold again and starting from scratch so it's gonna be something unlike we've ever seen but that's sort of why the everything in baseball or any sport I think moving forward now I don't know if you know the answer to this but what about the foreign players are most of them still in this country or to a lot of them have to come from other lands to get here most of you any of St the one shooter could stay stay they were encouraged to stay and they have the ability to have a place to live they were sort of told her to check in with their team feeling it or help them find a place to stay here not everybody did now there is a good news I guess there isn't there is an order signed yesterday by the department of homeland security that allows an exemption for our professional athletes to return to this country is are scared getting around any travel restrictions that might exist so that is now the official U. S. Lawson speaks so at least there's no concerns about them getting back in the US but certainly the ones that are back in their country you have to imagine you may not have had the resources to stay in shape but some of the guys here my well I imagine though even if they're allowed back in the day will be heavily screened and if they do turned in to be carriers of the virus they may have to be quarantined for a period of time now no absolutely but really that's gonna be the case with every player every player is going to go through so many free screen get a get tested get tested for antibodies before spring training start so they're gonna know sort of the the corona virus positive or negative every single player and those who test positive are going to be no not show up to spring training or be staying in their homes or hotels until there are until they're better so that's good blind everybody and that's going to be the first step of this very ambitious testing plan my baseball trying to house here where everyone getting tested at least a few times a week if not more and giving guys quarantine or positive it's really going to be a fascinating experiment to see if they can make this work just talking to Jared diamond the Wall Street journal in charge of I I have to believe that somebody is going to test positive after they start playing I mean I think it's almost impossible to avoid that and I'm just wondering is there a a number of percentage a certain point where they might say you know we we have too much of a spike here we have to shut it down if they thought I'm sure they thought about it but if there is there anything you know any suggested guideline in terms of that I'm sure they thought about it and and you're a hundred percent right that somebody is going to test positive you play baseball season for four months they're not going to not have any positive impact I don't even think started anyone's goal or expectation could not have positive male role is to be able to to get sort of identify them quick enough that you can prevent a big outbreak in baseball's insisting that it will be able to do that but I you're totally right that there is some threshold where if all the sudden entire team you test positive the thing sweeps through a clubhouse because something went wrong with the testing either with a false reading or they just didn't have enough to know that somebody was positive before is too late yes the huge problem baseball team is saying that it won't happen and that they are prepared and that they're not going to shut down the season but I think what makes so many things right now in the world no one really is going to know until we get there and is this is all unchartered territory absolutely I'm sure there is a world where this shut down I mean everyone in baseball concern about this now expected second wave of cases in the fall will even be able to finish the season no one really knows anything and they're just you know they're being as prepared as they can because I'll admit that this is just figuring it out as they go unfortunately well you raise the interesting specter of a team because let's say that twenty nine teams are fine and positive and okay and there's one team where it swept through the clubhouse and they have to shut that team down can they continue this season with twenty nine teams with the schedule where teams are supposed to be playing that team well they're not there so what do they do give my default victory or or what you know what happens then I mean the the very sort of cynical way of looking at the thing that the plan is there's gonna be like a taxi squad teams are going to have fifty players available to them and see all the all the whole for second team at their spring training facility just ready to go this situation comes I'm not sort of a very simple way of doing it as well if if you got sick will just replace them bring a whole new team maybe you could do something like that I think the bigger concern for baseball here are the real horrible fear and no one really wants to think about that house the least reconsider is the possibility of a player or two or three not since testing positive the getting very very fact that would be a real sort of disaster for Major League Baseball all the sudden you had some some players that are in the hospital or or you know in in real grave condition I don't know how baseball or any sport would handle respond to something like that and it's really one of the things that no one wants to think about but you have to assume or hope would be to be sports leagues are all aware of the fact that yes just because these guys are young and healthy and the odds are if they kept positive they'll be okay it's no guarantee and it would be real about it if that were to come to fruition Patrick Ewing in the hospital now now apparently it's not very serious but he is in the hospital so you know you've got a guy and he's fifty seven it's not twenty seven like ball players are but still you know here's a major sports figures so you've got that going on yeah I mean this thing is all fraught with the with danger and all kinds of unintended consequences but I I think they do have to move ahead and at least try they may get shut down at some point that would be terrible but what's the alternative just basically calling off the season I guess yeah I mean I do agree with you I know there's a sector of people out there that are upset that the sports leagues are trying even to come back and saying that well we have to wait until things are completely safe or we can guarantee the players how order number exactly I agree with you completely I think the whole world not just sport is starting to recognize now that we're gonna have to live with some degree of rest and make the two keys are one mitigating the risk as much as possible and to sort of accepting any of us some level of risk figuring out what is the acceptable amount of risk here and that's what baseball's doing thing okay we think this is an acceptable amount of risk of not no rest but we we for no rest we may never so I think that because of the by the sports is all over the world yeah I mean people say well you're putting a dollar figure on lives in the new no you were gonna her death panels again but you know it's kinda like that anyway with insurance companies and and and risks that you just take going out in the morning you know before this virus happens so you know you hate to cut it into Bobby Axelrod from billions terms but that's kind of the way it is right into some extent I I do agree and and the whole world everyone started to go outside a little bit more in the whole world is starting to accept and we're gonna have to live with this want to change some of our behaviors some of our habit but there's certain sort of thing that we can do that mitigates the risk and fill out some summonses of white baseball is not going to be normal to be very weird it's going to be very difficult on the players will be very restrictive it's gonna be a statically very different but that's sort of what it's going to take to try to play it I just don't all these leave I don't view it as somehow them valuing money over lives by trying to come back they should be trying to come back whether they can or not we.
