    I hope we have baseball tonight.
    If the Brewers don't show up, it should be a forfeit, I agree.
    I am not taking a side on the issue either way, but MLB can't just allow this to happen without a forfeit.
    It just sets a precedent for the players to do this all the time, and they will if there's no consequences.
    It's not fair to the Reds to make them play a double header if it's not a forfeit.
    It's also not fair to the pennant race if the game is just eliminated. I will just leave it at that. No comment on the issue
    they are trying to raise awareness to.

    If the Brewer's club still wants to pay them for the forfeit, that's ok.

    I saw on Twitter that the Magic didn't accept the Bucks' forfeit so the game turned into suspended status. I wonder if the Reds would have to make that decision.

    Bell apparently said Garcia will be a regular starter. Galvis will be a super sub around the infield.

    If Jose is up, by all means play him, sitting does him no good.

    There's zero chance the MLB makes the Brewers forfeit. ZERO. Even Manfred isn't that stupid.

    I wish they would, though, because the Reds could really use an easy win!

    Did Hader do anything more than make some bad social media posts in high school? I thought that was the whole story with him.

    If the Brewers do decide not to play, the big question is what the Reds do. Do they also make a statement that they are sitting out in solidarity or do they accept/demand a forfeit, thereby undercutting what the Brewers do?
    Yeah, MLB would step in and postpone it.

    You expect Reds to accept a forfeit made for this reason?

    Just curious.

    Daily pregame Zoom session with #Brewers manager Craig Counsell has been pushed back an hour per another Brewers beat writer. I don't think the game gets played and probably forces the Reds into the unfair position of whether to accept the forfeit.

    It's an unfair position to put them in for sure without discussing it with them before hand as I said above.

    Please postpone! Reds are terrible right now and could use a time out. Like their chances a lot better later in a makeup game.

    I imagine the Reds are involved in the conversation.

    I can't see MLB forcing a forfeit, it would create a major headache.

    Regardless, it should be the Reds' decision on whether or not to allow a doubleheader tomorrow. With a doubleheader already set for Saturday, it just creates more roster issues that they should have time to adjust to.
