    Nick Nelson got a reaction from Greglw3 in My 2022 Blueprint using TD Spreadsheet   
    I like this a lot Greg! Well thought out. Ray would be so fun. Big fan of Canha and consider him a very plausible Twins target.

    As I recall, he fabricated a trade rumor, got mad upon being called out for it, and then vanished into the great beyond.

    Thanks for writing this. I think you echo the feelings of a lot of fans.
     
    Personally, I do want to see a baseball season but I have hard time seeing a solution. The players and league are just too far apart. The logistics are so tough. The timeline is starting to crunch.
     
    I continue to feel that the best bet is some sort of specialized tournament (a la WBC). Players who want to opt in are able to, others can opt out but still earn something. Maybe they even draft new teams depending on how much participation there is. 
     
    Use the opportunity to test new technologies, innovations and rule changes. Ump-less games with electronic strike zones? Why not, it's safer. Interactive broadcasts, players mic'ed up in-game... there are a lot of things MLB could try out, many of which might be premium features they could use to drive more revenue.

    Nick Nelson got a reaction from Squirrel in What's wrong with Nick's column   
    Thanks for sharing your perspective. Just to quickly address a few things:
     
    - I don't think it's controversial to say the country is broken. Almost every major city has been embroiled in ongoing protests, amidst a global pandemic. There's been widespread rioting on a level rarely seen in my lifetime. Divisiveness and despair are at sky-high levels. To sit here and act like everything's hunky-dory in this country conveys the same sort of apathetic detachment that rubbed me the wrong way in Max's post.

    - You talked a whole lot about politics in this post. I was very clear about this: I don't consider it a political issue. It needs to be addressed in the political realm, yes, but justice and equality are basic parts of our society's fabric. Our way of life can't sustain without them. I'm sorry you and others have a visceral reaction to seeing Chris Cuomo's name but acting like the quote "This isn't political" has a partisan slant -- regardless of the source -- is absurd.

    Nice post with some solid reasons for optimism. As I noted in a recent post here on Reed, I'm excited to see how the addition of new coaching voices (Johnson and Hefner) can benefit him.
