Miami Marlins Outbreak Wreaks Havoc on M.L.B. Schedule
"Major league baseball season got underway last week. But so far it's been rough. More than half of the act of Miami Marlins players and several coaches from the team have tested positive for the Corona virus. As a result, Marlins games have been postponed through at least Sunday. But despite concerns over additional outbreaks, Major League Baseball officials have so far balked at the idea of canceling this truncated season altogether. Here's MLB commissioner Rob Manfred discussing the Marlin situation on ESPN on Monday. I don't put this in the nightmare category. I mean, obviously, we don't want any player. To get exposed. It's not a positive thing, but I don't see it as a nightmare. We built the protocols to allow us to continue to play. That's why we have the expanded rosters. That's why we have the pool off additional players. And we think we can keep people safe and continue to play. I've got J. McManus with me. Now she's the director of the Maris Center for Sports Communication and a sports columnist for the New York Daily News, Jane Great to have you with us. Oh, thanks for having me it. Rob Manfred, who We just heard MLB commissioner. There sounded pretty confident at least that he was going to be able to keep his player safe. But the Marlin situation sounds quite alarming. Tell us, you know how things have developed since the first cases were identified on the team. The proof is in front of him hasn't been able to keep his players safe. So the question is, what do they do now? The way that this developed was after a game in Sun on Sunday, where the Marlins were playing the Phillies before that game player had had tested positive for the Corona virus and the team of wanted to play that game anyway. And so I went ahead and played and of course, that Opens the door to exposure not just to the Marlins players, but also to the to the Phillies. And to anybody who's been working in that clubhouse. And so what you have, then is you know one test, turning into multiple tests in an outbreak and a team one of the 30 teams not being able to play going forward and quarantined in Philadelphia. Until they can figure out how to move this season forward

been going tomorrow and this idea of like being stuck inside for as long as we've been stuck inside I like to ask people what have they been doing well sports lifers you're like me you're watching all these games you're busy night in and night out Mike what has been the thing for you that has kind of got me through these last few months overnight it would fall off and I was just tired of the old games you know the guy who just came to me and you know when when games are actually going on I'm not aware of the sexual watching old repairs or the crowd of people because I finally got kind of actually look at the Washington Walgreens only because of the running and a lot of larger like kind of minding your time through a middle fourth inning facility for get to the good stuff one moment over here obviously look at the left unsold watching stuff like that Alex loved under there but I I really tried to increase by my reading of yourself I mean I would restore full whatever contemporary whether you know the more interesting only because the guy I need to I need to keep updated and I know what the nineteen seventy eight workers you know after a while there's always someone there for the good one actually I never thought I would ever feel that way but that's one thing that this a lot I'm trying to get it done it's gonna maybe another older watching old games but I but the good that I had to try and kind of going over we can satisfy the sporting jungle but you know I totally get it and it's funny might because you know I remember the ninety six postseason vividly polite team five and ninety six LCS was on a couple weeks ago and I have to admit it was the first time I watched that game since nineteen ninety six so like strawberry field hit home runs leader it's hit an opposite field home run the last hour like calorieking citing in the first place and I would feel like I've gotten to the point where like for me at first during this whole quarantine deal I was in the old games my gosh who was dumb enough to re watch ninety five game five watch the Louise Gonzales came just because I needed to fix the mad like I just needed something to watch even if it was gonna bring up those painful memories but you know being able to watch something like you would a tale and I heard him talk about this early today like a game he never saw in nineteen seventy eight it is kind of cool how we can like diverse syfy on lines and go back like thirty forty years ago and bring up something that we knew maybe a little bit about what we're able to add that much more insight to it whatever you want to do that said that I've got for the you too will shop your kind of accumulated over the last couple of months no I I have access to the lotus record close now so I'm everyone I remodel old newspapers and I found out a little more sense are you reading the old have been watching your games or I do I I I I just saw it because what I do it also isn't it actually serves as inspiration the car going about trying to figure out ways to to actually do some work in this time when you're a lot of games to cover you know it's interesting how often you can just kind of go back and help poor old stories and all of a sudden stores pop up stores open like you know what I think so if your only enemies will do this for them for the time being and then we can after trying to figure out ways to kind of muddle through exclusive helpful for me I know that Mike I want to get to something you brought up on Twitter and I gave you some one I gave you some credit because it inspired me to bring it up on the air in the calls were very much into it this idea of like combining Yankee make careers and ranking the top five it was awesome I saw it on Twitter and I don't know where you got it from I don't know if it just dawned on you randomly it was brilliant and we came to the same conclusion I don't know how you put together like a top five list looking at the mid career looking at the Yankee career and not put David cone at the top of the list because David Cole was a damn good met he was a damn good Yankee won all the championships and a bronze the perfect game you name it and I know strawberry had brilliance couldn't had brilliance Granderson was pretty good in both places but I mean if you look in pop Yankee top make combining them all in the one it's got to be coming yeah I agree yes it is it's funny really really started from JJ Sims of Cornell Washington main problem for your time but there is a guy that that was the Yankee and a met both in passed away this week and just on a lark well when I look at your tweets and I.

"League Park in Nineteen Ninety Major League. Baseball owners looked at minor league baseball and said wait a second. Why are we putting so much of the bill? If they're having success and the two sides almost walked away from each other it got bad enough there every December. There's a winter meetings where everyone in baseball professional gets together and that year they actually went to their separate cities. They didn't they couldn't even get together. Cooler heads prevailed and a deal was reached and that kind of led to. I would say almost thirty years of detente. It really hasn't been a contentious argument until we get to here in twenty four all right so let's set the scene for what happened ball on the one hand. Minor League teams had a pretty good two thousand eighteen season. Attendance was up spirits. Were High Right. Yes absolutely on the other hand. Federal Appeals Court allowed. A class action lawsuit that alleges that Minor League players are being paid less than minimum wage. And this could cost Major League baseball quite a lot of money right. Oh absolutely and there's in essence a minor league player right now has to show up in February or early March. They may get paid from June to September even though they're required to be there from February to maybe October major league. Baseball is facing some potential for You Know Court liability there and major league. Baseball has already come out and said for next year that they are raising salaries For Minor League players. They have said one of the reasons that they want to cut. The number of teams is the idea that would allow them to pay those remaining players more than they do under the current system and that leads to the proposal. Mlb made in October in a nutshell. What would that proposal to Major League? Baseball proposal was going to go from one hundred and sixty to one hundred twenty. That means that every major league teen would have four ticket buying clubs low a high a AA AAA as you might imagine the the reception from Minor League Baseball upon hearing the proposal to cut one fourth of their membership was we are strongly vehemently an utterly opposed to such a plan so both sides met at these winter meetings to talk about this. Describe that scene for me. I've been going to winter meetings for close to twenty years and I would describe it as probably the frostiest winter meetings that I've ever been a part of and to be honest at the winter meetings. There wasn't a whole lot of progress. Made what Minor League Baseball realized after. That was the the best hope of winning. This negotiation was to win the battle of public opinion and win the battle of political pressure. And so there was a pretty intensive lobbying campaign afterward where you saw. Us representatives from all around the country mayors governors all kind of trying to turn up the temperature put pressure on major league baseball to back away from this one twenty point then everything changed right right so then of course. The Corona virus forced teams to send players home from spring. Training Opening Day was postponed and even if Major League baseball returns without fans in the stands. Minor League teams likely won't so what does that leave these minor league clubs for revenue almost nothing. They'd had a normal off season. They had staffed up to be ready for what they thought was going to be a very successful season. They had bought all their allow their merchandise and all that they're going to sell this year and then right before the season starts where in the off season. You don't make almost anything. I mean the the minor league teams make their money. When people walk through the gates. They bought a ticket. They're gonNA buy a hat. They're going to buy a beer. They're going to buy a hotdog. All of that money just was turned off right before it started. So how did that change this conversation? It dramatically up ended it. I would say we went from having public pressure and political being. Mlb's strongest weapon in this negotiation and on both ends. The air almost immediately went out of the balloon. I there are bigger things going on in the country right now obviously not to diminish this. But they're just are and on top of that minor. League baseball is a sales driven. Business will not having that schedule not having that certainty when someone says to you. Are you really going to be here next year? That adds more difficulty and really adds more epidermis on the minor league side to get to a deal where there is no similar time pressure for Major League Baseball and now it looks like Mlb is going to get what it wants right. I mean there is no deal yet but there seems to now be much more of an acceptance on the minor league side that it is going to be a hundred twenty full season affiliated clubs but MLB is publicly professing to ensure that these cities that currently have affiliate baseball have baseball whether it's going to be an independent professional league or whether it's the Summer Wood Bat League where college players where they come to play in the summer so baseball can survive if you have a stadium and you have an operator who knows what they're doing. A lot of these cities baseball will survive. I don't want discount though. You are GonNa lose something because Vladimir Guerrero Juniors now playing for Toronto but it wasn't that many years ago that he was playing the Appalachian League and so any way around that league of of really small towns. You had the chance to see a guy who's going to be one of the biggest stars in baseball. That part's going to be taken away. And there is something that I- romanticize about that because it's formative of my baseball fandom so when Ted torn out. Gm of the Clinton Lumber kings tells the Des Moines Register that MLB is using the Cova nineteen crisis to force. These changes through. Is He right is he? Overstating it the way I've had to put to me is if you were trying to design a way to ensure that this plan went through. You couldn't do something much more effective than what the corona virus has done this happened. We're talking last October. It may be something like no. I'M GONNA fight to the last degree to save my team being affiliate baseball. Well if that owner gets to June of this year and they're looking at their balance sheet and there's a plan in this where they continue to have baseball going forward in an economically sustainable way and potentially there's compensation which may help to be honest. Pay Some of the sponsors and all that you aren't you owe money right now. That may sound a whole a whole lot. Different now because we've gone through an almost unimaginable circumstance..

Thanks so much for joining Ryan I hear on Scallon Palace today. I appreciate you taking the time. What is obviously an incredibly sad time for people in basketball and obviously the community that you know super well L. A.? I four muscle. Just ask you your thoughts on when you when when you heard the story and when you when you knew what was real and kind of get into the impact and what this has been like for the city the Los Angeles so far. Yeah I just landed in Miami for the Super Bowl when I turn on my phone and saw the news and and it didn't seem real. It just seemed seemed like a hoax or a bad dream or something like that and and it's just still surreal still something that it doesn't seem like really happened. And so come come to grips with that. And his impact and thinking back to our conversations and Jonah was always is there with him and we We talked prior to the NBA season. You know and I was Gonna ask him about the Lakers and clippers that we talked about that and we talked about GDP and you know her team and and so yeah just kind of like. That's the first thing that I thought of is John. And then when I found out that she was on the plane to just absolutely would be heartbreaking. I can't believe that Ross. We've talked a lot about Kobe impact on the NBA nationally and internationally Stanley. He was a global icon. I'd be interested in your perspective on specifically what he meant to. La To southern California and the Lakers franchise and and what you think the Lakers gers. If you've heard anything about what they will do honor Kobe or what you think the Lakers of the NBA should do to honor his memory. Going forward yeah I mean. I don't know what the Lakers are GonNa it do specifically I. I can't imagine that they're not going to have something At the game on Tuesday obviously perhaps he pats on the Jersey or something moving forward but when you talk about Los Angeles or heroes. He is towards the top of that list. If not each off and and that you know he's in that conversation with Magic Johnson and Creamer Jabbar and you know those players but There was just something about Kobe. Playing twenty seasons or the Lakers. Just one team He he was quintessential Los Angeles and and so he hasn't back But you you go to some of the significant moments in his career You know I always go back to that. Killian game where he tore his Achilles and he stayed on the court and hit two free throws and walked off on his own. It was just Such a competitive headed player. What do you think I mean we? We know all the things that he did for the city of Los Angeles. I mean obviously the Mamba Academy and Coaching his daughter's Obviously an advocate for homelessness. I mean there are so many things that it feels like. He was such a part of the city and I think it is interesting too that he and he magic was sort of you know whenever they would ask you as Mr Laker. The other one I would say. Hey if it was magic. He's Kobe if it was called me. He say it was magic. I mean you know. I'm thirty one years old. Arosh like I I you know I I didn't I didn't necessarily grow up watching magic. I grew up watching Kobe Kobe it was my Mj. As I said before I mean what how. How big of a loss is this going to be just in the community for Los Angeles Guy that obviously was profiting community? I'm trying to do better and had so so much more going on in his post career post MBA life than than anyone even really probably knew what. What's IT GONNA be like? You know. Basically the city of Los Angeles having to do without him. Long Eh it's GonNa be hard you know because his focus was on you sports and he just love youth sports so much with that With the Mamba Academy And and and again. It wasn't just hoops. You know he that that Mamba Academy was for all you sports and And again you know a lot of the stuff that he was doing. was you know children's books and cartoons and things like that. I mean the next generation the impact he was going to have on the next generation was going to be so big the massive loss for Los Angeles and and again. It's just like the hearts have been ripped out of the city and it's GonNa take a long time for us to recover Perrache. We've talked to people on the show. Who played with Kobe? who played against Kobe? Who coached against Kobe? But you had unique unique insight and perspective as you look back on his life and his legacy there are any stories or any interactions. That stand out for you. When you read a Lakers practice or game or shoot around or something something that our listeners may not know to get a better feel for who? This guy was behind the scenes. You know what are the what are the moments that I always go back to two thousand nine. I'm at the team. Hotel in in Orlando during the NBA finals. And this was after game. Four and that they lost game four and everyone was talking about. How tired you is? We're in the hotel bar. And he's he's having a corona China. I'm having a corona and he he tires to go back to his hotel like let's say like around Eleven I stadium so fill out. Call it too and then walk back to my hotel room. Kobi's leaving his room and he's already gym shorts that shirt and it's two o'clock in the morning I'm like where are you going. And he was GONNA go get some shot than in workout and I was one of those competitors we just did not sleep and they quit that night and that night. He refused to take off his champagne. Soaked uniform AH posted that picture on my twitter just That championship the first without shock that he got to celebrate with the CANESSA Natalia in Jonah just meant so much to him and so yeah I mean the picture I posted with him back in the hotel that night still in the uniform and the championship shirt. Make sure them at Arash Markazi on twitter to check that pitcher out Arash really appreciate short notice given some insight today and talking about the city of Los Angeles and Kobe Guy that I think you know obviously the entire league and even beyond basketball is going to be morning for a long time to come so thanks so much for sharing your insight today..

Two billion dollars hours while at the fast growing need it's still just a small part of the global video game. Industry is estimated to be worth one hundred fifty billion from the Wall Street Journal. This is the future of everything. I'm Qatari Yokum. This episode is part three of our highlights series where we bring you the best from the Wall Street. Journal's Tech Live Conference in Laguna Beach California for Three Days Wall Street Journal editors gathered alongside leaders in the tech community to discuss everything from the future of artificial intelligence to data privacy today. We're focusing on the future of games. Hi Jason Gay. And I'm a sports columnist for the Wall Wall Street Journal. I'm speaking Andrew Wilson the CEO of electronic arts electronic arts or EA as a global leader in the gaming world world especially in sports games. They're the ones who make madden NFL. Fica need for speed apex and of course the Sims the company has more than three hundred million registered players around the world and last year two thousand eighteen to posted a net revenue of five point. One five billion in dollars Andrew spoke to us about how e sports mobile gaming on social networks and mixed reality Games are changing the way people play and also also starts on the industry overall. I want to ask you right at the top. What you were excited about right now like what is happening in your trade? It might be something you are doing but it might be something somebody else's do what is getting you excited right now in gaming if you think about how cloud is going to change the consume everything right so we watch more TV and more music and we listen to music and AL belief is that we're actually started out a blue the lines between real and virtual with the cloud. So you get to place where you get up in the morning and every activity you perform through the day has has some kind of payoff out of a game. You might run to work. It means you have more energy and fee for. You might have a dozen eggs in the fridge. Which means you're sims a fed? You might drive fast. So you'll need speed game is better. You may interact with a whole Gotcha people so you have more power in. PG So this blurring of the lines between the real and the virtual kind of moving getting from a discrete experienced went industry experience. So are there applications locations for businesses to actually game by the workplace people showing up for the nine thirty meeting on time. I think that's happening already. We see that in schooling to where we use game fixations a lot of schooling education is becoming more compelling for a new generation so inevitably it happens in our workplace. That's for sure. Do you think that people can burn out on it or do you think that that is something that will stay the idea that people want that kind of competitive metabolism where they gamified experience social interaction and competition competition at two of the most powerful motives of human behavior that positive so guilt obligation addiction causes as human beings. Do all kinds of things until such point in time is actually actually. This is just really bad and we kick the habit cold Turkey and then we tell all of our friends not to do it as well but social direction and competition the two things that we don't we don't get tired of it kind of drives us throughout our lives and so really the very core of gaming these to call positive motivators of human behavior and provided you do it right and you build over time and and you get the rewards and benefits of those two things that it's not something you boone out on. It's actually something that enriches and extends it enhances your life. What's an example of something that you've experimented with yourself that that you've been surprised? It's been a very sort of exciting satisfying gaming experience candy crush. Who would've thought like doing this and doing this? I mean here. We are five five you six years later and we're still doing it. Yeah Yeah it's a good segue to the next question. which is that? I think of gaming as a business where every now and again there are true phenomenon that just crossed the culture. And what is it like. And you've had some of them. What's that like to have a game? That isn't just a business success but just sort of vaults into the cultural conversation station I think every day you up to build entertainment. You hope is that you're going to detain you. Know tens or hundreds of millions of people I mean as as the providers and creative at a time and I think that's all of our objective when we get up in the morning every now and then it actually happens and all kinds of good things come from that no kinds of challenges come from that. We had a game earlier this year. Old Apex Legends. We brought fifty million people into that game in a month. And that's that's a wonderful thing. I mean that's mind blowing and we we're running around the office cheering. How compelling this game and then all of a sudden you discover there are all kinds of negative manifestations of of that kind of broad appeal cheetahs in in the spice and you get people trying to counterfeit currency in spice and you get bullies in the spice? And then all of these kind of negative manifestations of human behavior that we see in the real world quite frankly also manifest that skyline a will that has this many eight people interacting with it and so there's a whole nother victor of work that we have to do to keep that that experience fun and safe and enjoyable for the people who play. How do you see around corners to predict predict and anticipate? What kinds of Shenanigans might happen at a game or been doing it alone time here? We spent a lot of time thinking about if we were bad bad people. What would we try? And do we go out and hire some bad people to see an awesome. What would they do that works? And then the other thing is is we've written a whole program. Set that that really looks at by human behavior over.

"Sports columnist for the Toronto Star, welcome to the program. Thank you. So we'll get to Leonard in a moment. But first, we know that Toronto's had like several years of good, but not great teams. Can you talk about how people are talking about this? I don't know what the energy is like in the city. Interesting excitement has never been hired never, and this is a franchise with two and a half tickets almost failure. And even when the team was good. Seasons tended to end in humiliation James that this is something I don't think we ever seen in the city before you walk around the city now and you hear people talking about the raptors you can hear the sound of the celebration if your condo towers downtown, if you stand out on your balcony, they finally captured the city and I don't think the team has ever truly done that before now quite Leonard was traded to Toronto before the season. Right. And it was seen as a big gamble because Leonard, you know, is a free agent next year. He might be eyeing a team in southern California where he's from is there a sense that this is kind of now or never in terms of winning title. The funny thing is for most people, you might be able to look at this and say all this success, the way that the city has embraced him and team all of these things would naturally lead to Leonard being more inclined to resign in Toronto, and we just don't know the case because he's a famously Paik individual. Nobody knows. What you really want in life. Basketball teams early good that might not be enough. People are talking about him as being one of the greats. Right. You're hearing, like Michael Jordan comparison being thrown around. Can he really carry the team to a title against the warriors, though? I don't think so. That people do is that defensively this rafters team is as good as anybody in basketball right now. It's a team with I.

I were the reason I went from point a to point b in every step of my life. So it has been very warning for me going through that process. But I did see I was at a crossroads, and that's why just I chose that the family over that lifestyle in that profession in and I'm glad I did looking back. I do miss it. Just like every coach just like every player miss when they retire. But what's best for your family has to take prison over there now, and that was a sensitive interview listened to Seth because I I know people that are close to say, and and they know how tough that for gene, Texas wish was on him and his family.

And then regroup before the the chimney. She'll be playing again team would be playing again probably on Wednesday. I think maybe Thursday, but these things move quickly and as a head coach.

Not talking about sports politics, I'm talking about presidential, politics those types, of things that's why most of us would watch ESPN I'm watching your, spending get, sports, news and, maybe catch a college football.

He. Did Joe do you think he's going to try to actually, squash the politics or do you think he's just going to try to limit it to? Say, certain individuals Well you know, they've been saying all along that they don't want politics. So this is this continuation of the same line? That they've been handing us but on the other hand they really done nothing to re-, to limit it happening so would that, sticking, in that purely in there, you, can be sure that he's giving himself wiggle room so that anyone, that does it he can have the excuse to say well we didn't mean no politics Also unusual is it.

Their rights to do what they wanna do, so he's got that battle the fight to it's not just a battle of what they're presenting to the public well I think we'd be. This is all about also following the money here. I mentioned twenty three, percent down, in viewership but it's, more than just that it's. The revenue, that's also done at ESPN and they have these huge, right's fees contracts at some point they're going to have. To do something Right well they've lost about. Fourteen million subscribers in the last seven years. So that's one problem and the other problem is that things like. The, air rights for all these sports network all these sports games rather believes. Are going up every year so you know, they're they're losing on on both ends of the spectrum so you see the the money following the money is really being. The key to, this what's your crystal ball telling you Something, has to break and it would not surprise me that if. Not in the near.
