Disaster Looming? A Series of Tweets From Today about 2020:

BREAKING: MLB commissioner Rob Manfred tells @Espngreeny that he’s “not confident” there will be a 2020 baseball season. “Unfortunately,” Manfred said, “I can’t tell you that I’m a 100% certain that’s gonna happen.” News at @espn: — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) June 15, 2020

When a league’s commissioner says a season will 100% take place – only to reverse course and say he’s “not confident” anymore after just five days, that undercuts the credibility of the league and its top decision makers. — Ben Nicholson-Smith (@bnicholsonsmith) June 15, 2020
You no longer care, which is understandable. But you should know that the Owners did this to baseball. Not “both sides.” The Owners. — Marc Carig (@MarcCarig) June 15, 2020
We should be hearing from the union soon. — Andy Martino (@martinonyc) June 15, 2020
Manfred admits on ESPN this has been “a disaster” in terms of optics for MLB. That’s something we can all agree on. — Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) June 15, 2020

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
