Hello and happy Wednesday. I hope it’s a wonderful day for you.

I’ve lost track of the amount of times I’ve used this platform to talk about whether or not there will be baseball in 2020. There was the time when the coronavirus first started to get serious in the country, and we all wondered if it would lead to the suspension or cancellation of the season.

Then, when the season was suspended, there were a few months of wondering if it could ever start again.

Then, when MLB and the Players Association started negotiations, there were a few more months of wondering whether they could agree on anything.

Then they agreed on anything, and it was time to wonder if they could actually go through with it.

Then the went through with it and started experiencing an inability to get test results back in time, and we all questioned whether they could actually make it work enough to start the season.

Then they did that and now 17 members of the Miami Marlins traveling party have tested positive for the coronavirus, and the team’s games have been canceled through Sunday, with the Philadelphia Phillies games canceled through Friday.

And so yet again I ask you if the baseball season will actually survive. Not if it should — we all know the answer there — but if it will.

Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?

Why yes he did.

July 29, 2004: Against the San Diego Padres, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 4th inning off of Ismael Valdez, scoring Pedro Feliz. It gave the Giants a 3-1 lead, but they would lose 7-4. It was his 26th homer of the year.
