‘Momentum’ could be building for MLB proposal to start season

The thought bubbles seem to emerge from MLB on a regular basis. What if all 30 teams go to Arizona, stay quarantined and play at spring training stadiums there? What if that is expanded to include Florida? What if they only play in domed stadiums? What if the 30 teams are split into three 10-team divisions and play at their home parks without fans? But there are more specifics attached to the latest reports. Starting on social media with former big leaguer Trevor Plouffe (and later matched by Ph...

Gavin Newsom undermines his own credibility

When California legislators, decades ago, gave governors the power to declare emergencies and quickly deal with them, they probably had in mind sudden events such as earthquakes, wildfires or perhaps riots. They probably didn’t envision a governor assuming almost dictatorial power over the social and economic lives of every Californian for the indefinite future, as Gavin Newsom did when the COVID-19 pandemic struck the state. Newsom shut down much of the state’s economy and commanded Californian...
