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.

There is a report this morning that MLB has told the cable networks to prepare for alternative programming starting Monday in case they decide to stop the season.

At least 4 (some reports say 5) more Cards have tested positive. Today's game is postponed. I looked for Manfried to cancel the season on Monday. Hopefully the Royals will win one of the last 2 games so they will win a home game this year.

Could be the last of MLB until 2023 - Next year -- waiting for everyone to be vaccinated. 2022 - expected labor stoppage while new CBA gets hammered out.

They need to remind the players and the new owners of the fans opinion of baseball post 90's strike. It took the MacGuire/Sosa home run race to save baseball from irrelevance. That was a once in a lifetime thing where it crossed over into non-baseball fans. I wouldn't count on something like that to save baseball this time.

From STL today:

Here is the breakdown of what is confirmed by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and and from officials with the team:

• Six members of the traveling party have been isolated from the team. They will undergo additional testing Saturday as a result of their positive tests. Four were new as of late Friday night or early Saturday.

• The entire traveling party is undergoing more tests Saturday morning.

• Not all of the results from Friday's exams have been reported or reviewed by the team. Once those are available to the team they'll have a better understanding of the reach of the outbreak, the condition of their roster, and whether they can advance on the next few days of the season.

Not a good look for MLB.

I guess they should have done something similar to MLS and NBA.

I wonder if MLB has the power to discipline (suspend for X games) someone who goes to a fucking casino while we are trying to get some baseball played.

Clay is going to be right about this season not happening.

I will have to apologize to him.

I really liked having baseball back. :-)
