On Headline Sports with Tony R:

#1 How important is it for the Las Vegas Raiders to have their defensive players Cory Littleton, Maliek Collins and Nick Kwiatkoski signed Wednesday?

#2 The other question is will the Raiders sign Caleb Nassib a veteran defenseman?

#3 In Nassib’s last two seasons with the Tampa Bay Bucs he started in 17 games and had 12.5 sacks over the 2018 and 2019 seasons.

#4 In MLB the Washington Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said that it would take about two weeks to get everybody ready before the first pitch of the season which has a target date of July 4th

#5 It all goes back to one thing that Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Blake Snell said “I want my money” and “I will risk my life” this seems to be a sentiment echoed by the players who quietly feel the same way as Snell. Can MLB and the players get a deal done?

Headline Sports podcast with Jerry Feitelberg: Offer still sits on the table for MLB players; Dr.Fauci says there could be a second wave from opening up

Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry interviewed Dr. Anthony Fauci on Thursday March 26th during the early days of the sheltering in. Fauci said without a vaccine opening up will not bring down the curve. Protesters say it’s their constitutional right to leave the house and go back to work. (file photo from npr.org)

On the podcast with Jerry F:

#1 We all know in order for baseball to return they must play in empty stadiums, check temperatures, there will be no showers for the players, social distancing for all players and employees while working in the park. How practical is this going to be.

#2 There have been a number of high profile athletes and celebrities coming out for Dr. Anthony Fauci. Dr. Fauci simply said that continuing to open up America will lead to a second wave, raising the curve, and those who are screaming that it’s unconstitutional to shelter in will be the very same people that will have to shelter in in a second wave.

#3 The San Francisco Giants have said they will be keep their 350 full time employees at least through September. The ball club will furlough it’s 60 part time workers and employees who make over $75,000 a year will get a 25% pay cut.

#4 The A’s have a Cornavirus relief fund for their contract employees from ProPark, Aramark, Landmark, Allied Universal and AEG have applied for the tax free grant. Oakland A’s full time employees are being paid through May. Everyone on board at the A’s are hoping that the players vote to come back by July 4th which means if the games are in Oakland. However with games played in front of an empty stadium it will still be a skeleton crew if the players comeback.

#5 Jerry with all this opening up going what chances is there that a spike of the virus could repeat itself and could force everyone back to shelter in?
