As we approach the restart of the 2020 MLB season, a lot of players are starting to drop out or express concern for safety, as more and more players are tested and come back positive.

The Brewers themselves have seen two players, Luis Urias and Angel Perdomo, test positive, and while they are asymptomatic, it can still be tough for players to see their teammates go down for a couple weeks after a positive test.

Are you worried that the MLB can't get the season off?


Arash Markazi, Sports Reporter for the LA Times, joined Bill Monday to talk about the return to baseball, his article on Brewers legend Ryan Braun, and more:

- What were his first impressions of his conversation with Ryan Braun? 

- Does he get the sense that the players want an escape with sports like the fans do? 

- Does he expect many players to opt out as we get closer? 

- Are all eyes on the NBA bubble as a test for sports coming back?
