It's going to be hard to get real world data as there is this all out push to embrace these vaccines as our saviors.  Time will tell if either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines actually accomplish anything.  Israel seems to be the one to watch, at the moment, and it's not trending well.. yet.  The serious side effects are absolutely there, as are deaths.  The point is: moderate expectations.  Not sure how your media is portraying it but, over here in the states, they keep telling us we're not allowed to act like normal human beings even after being vaccinated.  Either way, again, my tongue--n-cheek comment about how deaths are being counted was accurate.


I think the big problem here is American media. And no it’s not all back to normal once you’re vaccinated because that’s not how vaccinations work especially with ones we don’t know the long term effectiveness of.

Seriously if an Admin wants to move the previous 10 posts or so to Covid Second Wave thread, that would be great.  I can’t believe you mental midgets gave that stupid photoshop an audience.

Missed this one when it happened.  Billy DeMars, who had a short major league career with the Philadelphia A's & St. Louis Browns in the late 40s/early 50s, but a much more prolific one as a coach with the Philadelphia Phillies (1969-81), Montreal Expos (1982-84) and Cincinnati Reds (1985-87), died December 10th. He was 95.

Forum post reporting the death of Frank Saucier (wiki), aged 94.

Like DeMars, he was one of the last surviving members of the St. Louis Browns, a now defunct team that existed from 1901 to 1953.

5 remain now. They're listed here. The oldest, George Elder, will be 100 in March and the youngest is 92 year old Billy Hunter.


EDIT: Nearly 2 months on from this, it appears to be a hoax.

The cause of Gomez’s death is currently unknown, with ESPN only saying he “passed away unexpectedly.” A tweet had been posted from Gomez’s Twitter account as recently as Sunday morning, about eight hours before the announcement was made.

We used to get these coins for a limited supply of players.  Hadn’t seen one in a while.  But rather than post a baseball card, let’s do this:
