Cards/Brewers postponed due to positive test
Related to the discussion below, I canít believe NFL training vamps are starting up now.
I legit thought this was going to be about training camp groupies who were spreading the virus.
to me it's more a statement on what this pandemic has done to time
The temp is in the 60ís here today, which gave me distinct Ďfall college football Saturdayí vibes
I joke with my wife that time no longer has meaning
Illini fall camp should be starting like... this week. *
lol I have this same feeling
someone made the point the other day that we'd be passed the trade deadline in a normal MLB season
Yep wouldve been Saturday*
very long post from an Indiana FR OL's mom who got it
The heart issues are starting to worry me a lot.
I completely agree with that. Scares me for these athletes that could lose their livelihood
Man at least the NFL is collectively bargained. I can't imagine being a college football player*
Northwestern just paused workouts
There's no reasonable way a football season is going to work. *
MLB should just say any team with more than 4 positive tests at one time, adios...goodbye
Saxon" At least 8 positives on Cards confirmed. 6 players. Has a source that says positives is 13*
Team says five asymptomatic and eight with mild symptoms. *
7 players test positive 6 staff members. Also Field of Dreams game cancelled but not due to Cards*
Just end this already*
If you mean the Cardinals then yes I agree.*
really? i like the self-policing aspect of this; follow the rules and you're fine*
I think that's naive. Even a team that follows the rules could have an outbreak if even one player
you may be right but i suspect you're not going to get a mass outbreak
Iím on the fence about this.
Iím not. This is dumb and I wish weíd use this testing capacity where itís most needed.*
i'm curious about this argument in part because i don't understand the dynamics
Thereís nothing Iíve seen that suggests this capacity would go unused if not for baseball.
There is still an issue with testing capacity nationally?
Absolutely, a big issue is what snipes talks about below.*
there's certainly an issue with getting test results back in a timely (and useful) manner
isn't that because they're paying for better service; it's not like one single queue is there?*
IIRC they purchased their own lab in Utah and also either purchased or contracted one om the east
they definitely are
but if MLB isn't using this service, isn't some other company going to benefit from it?
I think the original line of thought was more of utopian optimization rather than a rail on
At least Cespedes is doing his part to save America.*
and with his .161 average, we thank him for it*
As of now MLB still plans for Cards-Cubs this weekend. But Tigers series is PPD*
Good. Hopefully the Cards have to use taxi squad players*
Haha that was my first thought too. Wonder what the odds are the games are moved to Wrigley*
Werner pointed out this morning that the records at the start of the series *could* be 11-2 and 2-3*
Cards not going to Detroit*
Heyman confirming report that at least a couple Cardinals went to a casino*
But, did any of them win at craps or blackjack? *
Poker rooms open down there too*
[Kris] I'm currently losing at craps. [/Bryant]*
this should have been a [George] [/Brett] tag.*
Not current anymore! Cubs just announced him back in the lineup
Positive players are driving back to STL. Healthy players are in Milwaukee waiting for guidance
Testing hasn't been announced yet for today. Rosenthal did have a tweet that seemed ominous
I think tomorrow has already been PPD. *
Not officially yet*
Stupid. I'm a Cards fan. But they should forfeit season. *
Were they wearing face diapers?*
No. Just jorts. *
my lord, you're mean*
and if this is professional athletes, there's no way they make it work for college football...
Gotta figure cubs cards wonít be played this weekend.
Really sucks to take a weekend off while on a roll
Whaaat??? It's the GD general public causing trouble for me & my fam, not my union brothers!!
Athletes are gonna athlete*
Kris Bryant in covid protocol because he got the shits.
Must be soooo confusing for those headed for the White Castle drive thru.
Last team that doesnít get teh corona wins*
Heyman tweets there is a lot of concern that cards have more positives today*
per Passen, "its not good"*
Cards have more positives, unsure how many as of now*
This guy confirms
The St. Louis Cardinals have multiple new positive tests, according to sources with direct knowledge.

And yet, no one hospitalized (& likely asymptomatic ) or dying. Lulz. Keep buying the scam*
Must suck that President Face-Diaper turned on you.
Itís been disappointing. He has given up & handing the Presidency over to Joementia. So, congrats*
Lorenzo Cain opts out for rest of year *
casino trip for the cards?
I'll wait and pillory them when I see some evidence.
Wong and Fowler played Whistling Straits this week and posted about it on Instagram.
Golf is fine. I play every week. Casino is a different story. *
Renting a car and driving an hour away seems unnecessary
I was literally on the course, waiting on the tee box, when I replied.
I think it depends on what it says in MLB's protocols
All fair points*
How is playing golf a bad decision?*
If true both these franchises should be heavily penalized*
Do you think thereís any support for those clubs not following the rules to forfeit
Good work Miami and St Louis. *
#### this team. I hope the whole city turns on them. *
The finest athletes*
Todayís game postponed. This season is over*
More than 5 Cardinals have tested positive
Good news is that so far no Phillies have tested positive.
Did they go out for wings in Sauget?*
I am amazed at how the national guys get this but the local writers
Theyíre all at the teat of the team. I miss Bernie. *
Wonder if it spread in the locker room or on the plane? *
So I have to ask, what exactly was the plan for using the big secondary roster at the alternate site
bench the whole team and play with scrubs?
Orioles way ahead of the curve on the ďplay with all scrubsĒ strategy.*
was the new double header change discussed?
They should just do coin flips for cancelled games.*
Next change-no runners, just Ghostman on the bases*
By next week they'll have to use Strat-o-Matic to simulate the rest of the season
They should have just started that way and gone straight to the playoffs
Meh, with all the cancellations and with the extenuating circumstances this year
Multiple positive tests in Cardinals clubhouse*
This has Carlos Martinez written all over it*
Two positive tests confirmed. Both pitchers per Saxon. *
Seems like this shuts down the team for at least a week. *
I never expected it to work, but this one will bum me out if it gets shut down.
LOL. Good luck NFL!*
Of course I bet it*
I feel bad for anyone in a fantasy league with money at stake. *
In a group with friends/neighbors. Only $50 but easily refundable when it all goes to hell*
If you were willing to risk money on a fantasy league this season, you deserve any bad beats*
I feel bad that weíre wasting testing capacity on this charade*
baseball feels like it's teetering on the edge*
that and the rain dates.. this is going well. *
Well, they canít lose now. *
It's not going to impact the number of runs they were going to score. *
or the number of hits that Harrison Bader would get*
This season is going to bail out the incompetence of Mo.*
Player? Coach? Other?*
Heyman says Cardinal. Not sure on coach or player. *
