    Personally I think that recreational baseball game attendance should be ended. From what I saw on the news today the people in stupidville are about to have a massive increase in cases of the covid. But, ‘yeah freedumb!’

    Don't be too shocked - with all these variants afoot I'd agree that recreational air travel needs to cease for a bit. Rob

    The Cards are opening with a third of their seats being sold for social distancing, no vendor sales, and other precautions.

    This in an outdoor venue.

    Seems reasonable to me.

    The Cubs and White Sox are doing the same. Not sure about the Sox, but the Cubs are doing no contact vendor sales. People are assigned specific gates.

    Meanwhile, in stupidville, they had a full house. And from what I saw on the teevee news maybe a third were wearing masks. But since everything is supposedly bigger in Texas I guess they might as well make the fourth wave of covid bigger as well. The ****ing stupidity is impressive.

    Texas and Florida seem to be vying for worst possible response to this pandemic.

    Jp, they could have done baseball the smart way like others are planning. It’s a shame.

    People keep pushing that scolding narrative, but are those states substantially worse off in real-world numbers than the ones who imposed more draconian lockdowns?

    The "draconian" lockdowns seldom were. They no more exist than the Easter bunny. I sat here in California appalled at the continuing opening of stuff. I literally watched the hospitals get overwhelmed (they failed the lowest possible bar: flatten the curve enough to preserve hospital capacity), as they didn't shut down stuff because of xmas shopping and they had to get black friday in too.

    They will lie to us of course and say "well who could have known hospitals would have been overwhelmed", while claiming to work from models on diseases spread and prediction. But I suspect their models weren't really THAT bad, they just let it happen. I mean someone should investigate, how did it happen, were the models really that off or was it a choice? It did not help of course that we had mini rebellions going on with sheriffs refusing to enforce lockdown as well. Tell me does that on the ground reality ever figure into the mythical "draconian" lockdowns that were supposedly happening?

    Now states differed in a lot of features. Those that were hit early when we had no idea how to treat this thing had high death tolls. Some places have problems with overcrowding etc.. But almost nowhere did anyone do draconian lockdowns, certainly not in California.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    They try but the reality is that north and South Dakota win the award. Part of the problem for Florida’s efforts is that they export a lot of their success at spreading the disease to other states who get to count the case numbers and deaths as their own wins.
