The coronavirus has caused huge changes in our lives. The sadness of living without sports and the Reds is minor compared to the fears, concerns and adjustments we all face. None of that is going away any time soon. From our side of the keyboard, it’s hard to find baseball blog content to write about when there is no baseball occurring. Beyond that is motivation. Each of us, like you, is coping with new personal realities, ones that dwarf a team sports blog in importance.
Our original content will be more sporadic. We won’t post (retweet) drips of trivial news about baseball and the Reds.
That said, talking Reds baseball might be an escape from anxiety and worry for some of you/us. It might offer a brief respite from the all consuming public health news.
So we’re trying this Reds Open Thread today. Ask questions for the writers to answer. Start discussion topics. Express your Reds opinions free form. Whatever you want, as long as it’s Cincinnati Reds related.
Given the uncertainty surrounding the resumption of the baseball season, much of what any of us write will be speculation. But if the conversation provides a moment to daydream, to let our minds think about something other than current events, that’s a positive. We hope you’ll join us, whether you’re a first-time or regular commenter.
