Max Rieper, Shaun Newkirk, and Hokius are keeping their distance from each other as they discuss MLB’s plan to play the regular season under a virtual bubble in Arizona. They also discuss their favorite baseball movies, and whether they have aged well. Among the topics we discuss:

How feasible is it to keep all players safe for the regular season, even under the Arizona plan?

Will players feel compelled to risk their health and play?

Can the Royals compete in the proposed divisional alignment?

Should baseball try out some wacky ideas this year?

How would a shortened season impact the Royals?

What are your favorite baseball films?
