Jays to play in Buffalo?


Recommended Posts

Haha - no sh1t?

Should have known it was going this way after I read that they were talking about just playing all games on the road, and treating some of them as home games. Or maybe playing in Baltimore with a whole fleet of portable changing rooms.

Wonder if the parking garage overlooking the field will remove the "curtains" blocking the view of the field from there? They could make some serious cake this summer.

No.  There is very little benefit to Buffalo in this.

Disagree, you now have a pro sports team staying in Buffalo hotels and eating Buffalo food. I think every little bit of that will help.

Hotels must be ecstatic. That said, Buffalo will now have large groups of people from all over the US. To think they won’t be breaking quarantine would be naive. Shock Cuomo allowed this actually. 

MLB testing must be up to Cuomo standards even if wings aren't.

And just think, Maryland and Pennsylvania rejected these games due to increased transmission risk. 
 

Forgot Canada too.

I didn't say there was no benefit.  There is little benefit.  Groundskeepers get paid, too, I get it.

I don't feel that the reward outweighs the risk here.

Oh, I understand what you are saying now. Hard to say but let's hope everything is okay.

Buffalo gets a bit of a financial boost.   The ball park gets a few upgrades courtesy of the Jays.  There are some jobs and positive economic impact.   The down side is teams coming here with possible Covid Exposure - same risk as the NFL Teams.

So, do I understand this correctly? The entire Jays team can go play games in Florida, then fly to Buffalo and play games there without a 14-day quarantine?

But if I fly there today and come back tomorrow, I’d have to quarantine?

They’re “essential workers”.
