Dodgers: A June Start Date Might Be Best Case Scenario

Dodgers’ baseball resuming in June is not out of the quesiton.



For those Dodgers fans waiting to hear when baseball is starting, be forewarned. This is not a guaranteed start date, not is this any sort of official announcement. But it does seem like baseball starting back up as late as June is not out of the question.

The original Opening Day for the Dodgers was supposed to be March 26th against the Giants. Major League Baseball pushed that date back two weeks, giving us an estimated start date of April 9th. That estimation was called shortsighted by many experts in baseball, and now that looks to be true. 

It seems more likely that baseball starting back up in June would actually be a welcome sight for fans. If that’s the case, the Dodgers would be missing out on their first thirty games of the season at least. It is unclear if the games would be made up, or if the baseball season would be shortened instead. 

Major League Baseball’s commissioner is scheduled to meet with the league’s owners on a conference call on Monday. After that, the league should have a clearer vision of what the 2020 season will look like.

  1. Well 8 of 30 games scheduled before June are inter-league opponents; who cares if those get dropped.

  2. People are in the hospital and Drumpf comes out and says he’s happy today because the stock market. That’s all he’s cared about this whole time is the stock market

  3. Laughing at anyone who had said we should give up 3 very talented prospects for a year Rental of Betts.
    looks like that move is really paying off.
    At This Point we don’t even know how many games we will get out of the deal.
    Another thing that most folks don’t comprehend when these short term deals come to light is you never know what’s going to happen barring injury etc.
    this is obviously something that nobody can for see but some of us were leery about this deal because of what we had to give up for a one year (now less) deal.

  4. @DodgerBlue…I couldn’t agree more. This “year” of high cost “rentals” has turned out just as many of us thought…a total bust! I am just glad that the franchise didn’t cave to all of the hoopla and toss in Lux like all the other teams wanted!!
    I really feel bad for the players whose stats no matter when…(if?)…Baseball recommences, will never be the same. I see a lot of asterisks going forward. And what about the players who possibly were planning this as their last year? Crappy way to go out, IMO.
    Just goes to show you that *anything* can happen at any time…and why trade a good Future for a one-year “rental” ???

    • “Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”; whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.”
      James 4:13
