The Lounge>St. Louis Cardinals sidelined with COVID
tk13 08:08 AM 07-31-2020
More postponements.

Positive coronavirus tests with the St. Louis Cardinals have postponed their game against the Milwaukee Brewers, a source tells ESPN, confirming the @jonheyman report. Unclear how many, but to this point positives had been limited to teams in the East. Now in the Central, too.

Are they even going to be able to finish this season?

I honestly don't know. We have three games postponed tonight now due to COVID.

And that doesn't even include that St. Louis just came from Minnesota, and the Twins are now in Cleveland. Probably going to have to keep an eye on the Twins and Indians now.

So, per source, the #Cardinals for now have been told that, if the rest of the team tests negative (and I haven’t yet been told how many positives they had), the series with the Brewers will start on Saturday.

No.

If MLB's plan was "shut down any team that has a positive" than they shouldn't have even started the season back up.

Players were getting this during lock-downs. Players were getting this before the season opened. Players are GOING to get this because MLB didn't attempt to isolate them outside of the ballparks.

Players getting COVID was inevitable and if they simply planned on locking down any team that had a positive test, they shouldn't have bothered. And that goes for every single one of these major sports.

Accept occasional cases as an inevitability or don't bother. This is ridiculous.

Wonder how many tested positive. Been a handful of teams have 1 or 2 guys have to sit out for symptoms/positive tests but didn't have to postpone their games. Have to imagine a decent number tested positive here.

This season is just a disaster. Half the league going to be looking at doing 2 weeks worth of those 7 inning double headers if they want to actually finish the season at this rate.

I'm just curious how so many cases just pop up at once to shut a team down. What exactly are they doing together outside of the games? When Bundesliga came back they didnt even practice as a full team and I feel like if any sport can manage doing that it's baseball.

Teams need to carry a few “bubble” hookers.

Considering how idiotic the vast majority of the population is about this entire thing, why would athletes be any different?

It’s not a rumor. Dexter Fowler’s Instagram story was taken at Whistling Straits.
