Miami Marlins Clubhouse Infected...Home opener cancelled

Taking precautions is fine, but geez everyone needs to chill. As with all transmission, this was in-house, players who are spending time together in proximity gave it to each other. Same for outside of sports, family members are spreading it amongst themselves and with coworkers and close friends. Whenever they finally study this properly I bet it will turn out 90% of people who got it will have gotten it from a person they were close to and didn't take precautions against. To act like some cases being found means every player in MLB is going to have it in 2 weeks is crazy hysteria.

But Marlins and Phillies just played yesterday WildBill. Its all fucked up. I dont know about you but I said it felt uncomfortable and weird watching baseball without fans. We can't shut down life again though. We just cant. Humans need to be active. But I domt want people to die and have long term effects of this virus.

I saw the word "postponed" when talking about the yanks/phils.

That gives me the idea that these non-divisional games are not going to be played.

Very interesting to see how this plays out.
Which, to support my point earlier, makes for a disproportionate schedule with respect to completed games. Don't see how you could base s fair season on that.

Sorry man, but we all have no choice in this. We either shut things down or we don't. To act like well someone is dying out there so its not right to play baseball is not the right thing to say because you could go on that path for everything. Is it right I can go out to eat here when someone is getting fed through a tube? Is it right that I can hang out with my family and friends because they are all relatively healthy and under 50, while others with 80 year family members can't? It never ends. If they want to shut down sports, fine, shut EVERYTHING down. Otherwise let it go and if it doesn't feel right and you don't want to watch, don't do it.

Believe it. They held a players only meeting to play yesterday and most said yes even after knowing they had a few positive cases.

This is unbelievable.
Alright if sources say so. But can't believe the team or MLB would allow it. And if guys are infected, why are they having players only meetings? I mean nothing about any of that makes sense.

It will be dead. Its not possible to play. Just isnt. You wont have enough time to make up games and we cant just keep halting games when players or staff wind up positive.

No way to 100% confirm anything, but from what I've been hearing, the Marlins knew they had a handful of players test positive before yesterday's game, but decided to play anyway. The players texted each other about it, but decided to play

If true that's insane. Its not even about the Phillies, but themselves. They probably won't give it to the Phillies or the umps, but they will continue to spread it internally. Guys who have it need to stay away from others while inside and wear masks. I bet they didn't do any of that.

Wish I was holding a Marlins Under win total ticket, if they continue playing God only knows what their lineup will look like

Sucks for the team, but this is the inherent risk all teams face. I think MLB should have even considered a sort of roving pool of prospects/minor leaguers who are out of contract that could be signed for short term purposes. And have these guys play games against each other for scouts to watch. With a 5 round draft every team needs to sign a lot of players for the pipeline.

So what do you conclude from that?

Still don't get why MLB didn't bubble. Were they really thinking they could get fans into the stands and got greedy?

In our current society of Total Corruption & Greed running rampant in every phase of our society, surly big money and Donkeys are putting profits over lives.
This kind of stuff is just gonna keep happen'n.

The fact that we didn't act just like Vietnam did with this virus irritates the hell out of me.

Ironic how this comes on the heels of the KBO allowing 10% of stadium capacity, which amounts to roughly 2,500 in attendance. Sort of a Sun Life Stadium like crowd.

Former Orioles pitcher and U.Va. grad talks life in Korean baseball league during coronavirus


If one player tests positive for coronavirus, the KBO’s plan calls for the league to be shut down for three weeks.

The threat of COVID-19 still exists in South Korea, but the number of infections and hospitalizations have been reduced to a point where much of life there has, from what Wilson has noticed, returned to normal.
