MLB COVID-19 outbreaks: Marlins, now at least 6 Cardinals

wow this is such terrible thinking. It’s a virus you f***ing moron, it doesn’t care if you are a quitter or how manly or weak you are. It cares about whether it has opportunity to spread to additional people and that is it. You don’t beat a virus by staring it in the face with your steely eyed determination.

To me, in a complicated issue it's pretty simple. Travel still is not safe even with distancing on airplanes. Any sport teams that are going to travel are in danger of lots of COVID cases at any point. It's been discussed ad nausem. COVID lurking everywhere on the road.

Colleges getting ready to play football angers me. Not a responsible thing to do unless we're trying to do the herd mentality thing which frankly scares me. Anytime somebody says hospitals may run out of ventilators/beds is scary in the USA. 

Even with the Cardinals announcement today, we may be one more breakout incident (oh, it'll be coming I'm sure) from calling off the season even with Manfred saying what he is saying.

Cain's announcement I predict is three days ahead of the end of baseball I predict. It'll be called off for the season on Tuesday. (A true leader would put together a bubble plan to implement in Arizona within a week; it's the only hope but will not occur I'm sure). Colleges? Wake up before it's too late. Unless u are trying for herd mentality, stop the students from coming back. This is going to be a disaster.

Players could be a lot more careful. The travel risk is unknown.

Cancel all games for 2 days. Emergency meeting with the PA. Hand them new safety protocols requiring masks at all times (reduces face touching if you’re not removing it), distancing in dugout and on field, penalties for any actions that violate safety protocols up to suspensions and fines, mandatory distancing And masks during travel, and anyone caught in a hotel bar or restaurant or strip club or barber shop without a mask on or too close to anyone to violate the 6 foot rule gets a week suspension.

PA told to take it or season ends.

Balta love your posts Covid related. How about emergency meeting saying we'll set up two bubble pods and be ready to go on Friday. Arizona and Florida or wherever. It's the only hope.

It begins. If the league won't enforce the rules for all players, we're going to see more and more opt op until we reach a breaking point. The players will take it into their own hands and force the issue.

Cain won’t be paid for the rest of the season. Only those who won’t play because of special vulnerabilities to the virus, ie pregnancy or underlying health condition, will be granted pay and service time. Trout could probably opt out with pay due to his newborn.

They're not doing this, the time for that was months ago and they determined it wouldn't work, the high in Phoenix today is 112 degrees, you can't play baseball in that.

Arizona and Florida?   You want to try and fix the COViD problem by putting all teams in two of the biggest hotspots?    If that was MLBs plan, just cancel the season now.

Kindly go fuck yourself, Heyman. He and Nightengale just don't have a shred of dignity less.

 

I'm curious where the management folks, who are claiming traveling cross country multiple times a week and spending all day in gatherings and athletic competitions are all as safe as as normal behavior, got their medical degrees. This is such dishonest reporting it's appalling.

The Cardinals are considering a pause in their schedule to put some distance between the positive tests and their next game, two sources with knowledge of the team's discussions said.

UPDATE: Cardinals will not play Monday in Detroit. They will have a four-game series there in Detroit instead and it will start Tuesday. There will be a doubleheader Wednesday, and a game Thursday.  The Cardinals will be the home team for two of those games.

But he hasn't died!!

They can't prove it was COVID!!!

You know, the sad thing here is NOBODY really cares that much about Eduardo Rodriguez, other than Red Sox Nation.

Now if it was Mike Trout, or Trout's newborn baby, that would be the end of the season.

Is this your suggestion or is this what actually just happened?

Suggestion. Best way to salvage this/prevent full cancellation of the season due to another outbreak this season was to pause right now and fix what is wrong. The procedures currently are insufficient, which means that it won't be long before there's another team-scale outbreak without significant strengthening to the current safety procedures. Failing to prevent that = potentially losing the season.

Florida is also a hot mess. I have a friend whose wife works for one of the hotels. There are many grubhub orders and girls constantly trying to be brought in against protocol. Probably just a matter of time before they have an issue as well.

We only have 52 more games scheduled and who knows if they’ll even get played. It’s going to go by in a blink so enjoy each of them in any possible way, gang.

Well to be honest, this may be better for us than the full 162. I don't think we would have made the postseason with 162. The team had to rev it up so guys took training and camp games seriously. If Kopech and Madrigal can be positive next year I think we will win the division.

I agree with this suggestion. The idea that this season, even a shortened season, was going to last was a long shot. Things need to stop for a time so problems can be further addressed. This should be done not only for the baseball season, but to show the rest of the country what kind of crisis we are in. No, it isn't a wise thing to go to Covid parties or dance around in night clubs. Things are only going worsen if we remain in denial. And people in responsible leadership positions should stop with the horse shit macho stuff.

Too bad for the White Sox. The rebuild is finally showing results.

The Reds earlier had the 3 players with symptoms, so Votto isn't or at least shouldn't be a surprise.

We're getting a real-time case study in how contact tracing was SUPPOSED to work, but imagine expanding it to 320+ million people, or, in the case of China, 1.3-1.5 billion, give or take a few hundred million.

This thing is a monster, and it's not easily going away, even in the places MOST experienced in dealing with Covid as well as SARs.

Teams from across the border will help local authorities carry out wider screening and construct a makeshift hospital. Assistance comes as city reports 115 new cases and another two deaths.

Realistically if we can make it to 30 games, maybe just start the playoffs a month early.

🤔 It's impossible to predict a scenario that seems crazy at this point.
