RE: Miami Marlins
That is the one thing they didn't need.

I don't care as I wrote off the MLB due to their pandering.

We'll see if it effects the ACC announcement this week

RE: Miami Marlins
Alright, who had 5 days from the start of MLB season till a team had to close down? Anyone? Less than 1 week?!

Someone call the bookie, I’m pretty sure less than a week was the favorite.

He needs to change who he roots for from “college sports” to “abused puppies and shattered dreams“.

The MLS had 2 teams (Dallas and Nashville) shut down prior to their MLS IS BACK tournament. They had to reconfigure the tournament (although very minor changes).

Little did they know they would have to expand the roster for a 14 day disabled quarantine list.

RE: Miami Marlins
Are they wearing masks on the bases? Do they HAVE to take a 6 ft. lead? Are the catcher and umpire wearing N95s under their face masks?

The Cincinnati Reds had one player test positive on Saturday. Two players woke up sick on Sunday and were scratched from the lineup.

RE: Miami Marlins
And this is only one series in. Imagine if this was a week or two in: instead of the Phillies/Yankees also getting postponed, we could be looking at two, even three, other series getting postponed too. We'd be looking at nearly an entire section of MLB getting shut down (East).

The disappointing thing is that if this still occurred with all of the expensive and costly measures in-place to prevent this, this doesn't bode well for college/HS sports for Fall either (as Stever points out). Colleges (at least very few) do not have the same resources and financial backing to commit to these radical measures long-term (several months, full year) like billion dollar professional leagues do. However, even if you do commit to a bubble strategy (like the NBA), all it takes is one Lou Williams to wing it and strip everything down.

NFL teams are larger, with more staff, and with greater physical contact. If baseball can't do it successfully, I'm not sure how other sports do as well.

RE: Miami Marlins
This is a good reason to just cancel the Marlins permanently. Replace them in a few years with an expansion team in Montreal or Portland.
