Chicago Cubs: Not having players’ input seems like a real issue

There is also the issue that there are no players represented on Trump’s task force, just the folks at the top who get paid big money already. These are the people that are going to decide if baseball players can come back and play.

At least bring in someone from any player’s union so those players are not taken to the cleaners and then put out on the field in unhealthy conditions. Is Ricketts looking after the business, his players or his advising role to Trump? Nothing is clear but we’re hoping this will not adversely affect the Cubs.


Unless there is another wave of COVID-19 or another massive peak to overcome; then these days you are most likely in one of two camps in America. You are either part of the careful crowd that wants to stay home longer to be sure we have no health spike or rise in cases. Or you are part of the economic crowd that is saying we need to get back to work and open our economy but with added protection to mitigate the virus.

Am I right?

These two groups are socially and fundamentally opposed; so which are you in?
