Thread: Players Diagnosed with COVID-19

    And just heard on radio that the Marlins season has been paused. I have no idea what that means yet, and whether that includes the Phillies or not. The most suitable GIF I can find:

    Geesh. Phillies paused too. This is gonna lead to uneven games played, if the season survives. Win % will decided.

    Rosenthal has been tweeting a proposed plan for the next week for the Marlins, Phillies and their opponents:
    The Yankees and Orioles would play each other in Baltimore on Wednesday and Thursday instead of Philadelphia and Miami respectively.
    Philadelphia will plan to play at home vs. Toronto starting on Friday if COVID-19 testing shows no issues by then.
    Miami's situation remains unclear, but there are no mentions as to when they might consider playing games again.

    Well, it wasn't all sarcasm. Yes, I believe MLB has a contingency plan for this, and I don't expect them to suspend or cancel the entire season. Obviously with the Marlins, who now have 15 players gone for the next 14 days, they will have to determine if they can play with any players off their 60-man roster and not "start the clocks" on them if need be. If they can't, then I'm not sure what they will do, as them not playing has a ripple effect on every team. So I imagine the solution will be to just force the Marlins to use whoever they can while these players quarantine.

    It's ugly for sure, but not entirely unexpected.

    Cardinals-Brewers game today postponed after "more than 5" Cardinals players and staff tested positive.

    Meanwhile, the Marlins are up to 18 players with COVID-19.

    It was only 1 additional player. The rest were staff.

    That was a really critical update... for a while there, thinking about a larger scale outbreak among the players could kill the season. We're dangerously close already, with Manfred having warned the players union of a possible shutdown.

    Comissioner Rob Manfred tells me “We are playing. The players need to be better, but I am not a quitter in general and there is no reason to quit now. We have had to be fluid, but it is manageable.”
