Dodgers News: All-Arizona Idea on Ice, MLB to Have Season Ideas to Teams Next Week, Ethier Meets His Hero, and More



When we all first heard about MLB’s “biosphere” idea around a month ago, it was no doubt a head-scratcher. Players were split down the middle at best on whether they would consider playing, with Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw being one of the louder no’s in the game.

Understandably, MLB has been combing through a myriad of ideas, but it seems like that early “all-Arizona biosphere” idea might be dead in the water. The topic was discussed by Karl Ravich, Eddie Perez, and Jeff Passan during Tuesday morning’s KBO opening day broadcast on ESPN. Simply put, there are too many issues and variables to consider for a clean start to the season that way.

Now, the plans seem to be focusing more on teams playing in big league ballparks. Moreover, it seems like we might actually have real, MLB-approved ideas for a potential 2020 season.

Once again, ESPN’s Passan let folks know on Wednesday that Trevor Plouffe’s early-week tweet might not be that far fetched. More importantly, Passan says that MLB will be pitching those concepts to the players association “within a week”.

Additionally, those plans would include contingencies for the coronavirus.

The complications could be manifold, whether due to a coronavirus breakout in a city or the risk added by traveling, but the logistical concerns aren’t nearly as acute as they would be with the building of hubs.

As such, some teams have been telling their players to get ready for something to happen soon. Any potential for baseball sooner rather than later is a-ok with me.
