Already having MLB games cancelled because of Coroanvirus

The odds of this season keep going down for me. They haven't even played a full series yet, and they are already having to cancel games. I don't see the MLB or the NFL season playing to completion. The NBA season may have a chance, because they are going to be rapidly eliminating teams from competition. It's too hard to maintain a strict bubble over the course of an entire season though, and once you have an infected player, you suddenly have multiple infected players and a game is cancelled. I just don't see how it's going to be done.

The only sure way would be to have the president tweet that he hopes it will be cancelled.

Theyd be piling the bodies up in the freezer saying the show must go on!

It will be done. I have no doubt. The big difference between the MLB and the NFL is that the NFL is placing FAR more strict protocols in place. That said, MLB will continue. Games are postponed all the time in that league.

Re: Already having MLB games cancelled because of Coroanvirus

The thing to remember is that virtually all of these players across all the leagues that have tested positive have been asymptomatic. They aren't sick, they are simply positive. In ten days they can come back with no apparent danger of contracting it again nor of transmitting it again.

The Miami Marlins clearly had serious gaps in their protocols and/or their players ignored those protocols. I assure you that will be the exception rather than the rule. By the way, 14 of the 15 three game opening series MLB were completed with no major issues.

I honestly dont think itd be risky, if Im being completely unbiased. Their age and health profile is virtually 0% risk of getting seriously ill. Probably the same as any other natural causes.

Theyll miss more playing time with a regular ankle sprain

It looks that way. I guess now I'll have to wait until tomorrow to start a new thread about COVID.

Re: Already having MLB games cancelled because of Coroanvirus

Our sports leagues have billions in resources and billions in incentives to play. Isolation. The quickest testing turn around being two days. Contact tracing. Yet, they still can't pull it off. It's been bungled from the start and we are still failing. Rich or poor. Black or white. Republican or Democrat. The virus does not care. Other countries have succeeded. They shut down. Stayed shut down. Tested. Contact traced. Listened to scientists. Weren't driven by politics and money. Vaccines are our only hope. There's no way we come together as a people.

The President and Republican Governors have said the show must go on since the first cases arrived on our shores. Bodies have been piling up in freezers. 1000+ deaths in the US the last few days. 150K deaths and counting overall. And the President and Republican politicians response? The show must go on. Schools must open. Expect more of the same. And you compare it to a sprained ankle? Lord have mercy.

Re: Already having MLB games cancelled because of Coroanvirus

I still dont see a whole season happening. Honestly football is hardly important right now. Either open everything back up or shut everything back down. Trying to find a happy medium isnt working. Im in favor of opening everything back up like we should have when they the tried phase 1 experiment.
Our country has failed miserably as far as Covid is concerned.
