BREAKING: Major League Baseball to hold an emergency meeting today after 14 Miami Marlins have tested positive for COVID-19 following their weekend series with the Philadelphia Phillies.— Eric Jackson (@ericjackson) July 27, 2020
So after MLB’s first weekend we already have an outbreak and it’s lead to this. Rob Manfred plans on holding an emergency press conference regarding the situation. Will he shut down the league? Will he remove the Miami Marlins from play or will they have to self quarentine as a whole for weeks? Who friggen knows how this is going to be handled.
Truthfully, the only ones who truly can be blamed for this are the players and MLBPA. The MLB had a bubble plan laid out for the players and they blatantly declined. You look at the MLS and NBA and 0 positive cases. Those leagues got it right.
Now all we can do is sit and wait for this emergency conference and see what Manfred has in store for the fate of the remainder of the season.
