Marlins vs Orioles game tonight postponed, as 14 Marlin players have tested positive for COVID-19. Beginning of the end of the season already??

The Phillies / Yankee game is also postponed.

I think I heard that the visiting clubhouse attendant in Philadelphia tested positive. Whether he was was the one that spread it through the Marlins team is to be decided. But I also heard that the Washington Nationals have taken a vote about going to play in Miami later this week and the majority voted no. So MLB will have to make some hard decisions very soon to determine whether the season will play out or not.

The more damning thing to me is the Marlins' knew they had positive tests, took a team vote, then asked the Phillies and they AGREED TO PLAY!

Manfred was too busy coming up with dumb new rules to implement instead of creating an actual strategy in case a major outbreak happened with a team. Marlins-Phillies should have never been played on Sunday after word of an outbreak got out. That should of been a MLB decision.

I don't understand how MLBPA agreed to play without any definitive rules on what to do if there were positive cases. Instead they were more busy whining about how much they get paid instead of caring about the safety of their own members!

Baseball is in trouble. The Marlins have postponed their next 6 games - through Sunday after 4 more players tested positive. That’s 15 total.

The next 3 games between the Yankees and Phillies have also been postponed. The Yankees will instead go to Baltimore and play the Orioles on Wednesday and Thursday to allow more “schedule flexibility” moving forwards.

That puts the football season in jeopardy too I would think.

Well it really just means football needs to come up with a smarter idea than baseball.

Now whether you trust the NFL to actually do that? I'm certainly not holding my breath.

Jerry Jones will figure it out.
