Coronavirus breakout on Miami Marlins at 14 and rising

Recommended Posts

 

The Miami Marlins' home opener against the Baltimore Orioles on Monday night has been postponed, sources told ESPN's Jeff Passan, as coronavirus cases continue to pop up among the team.

Eight more players and two coaches with the Marlins have tested positive for the coronavirus, as an outbreak has spread throughout their clubhouse and brought the total cases in recent days to at least 14, sources familiar with the situation told ESPN.

The Marlins remain in Philadelphia and continue to undergo testing after their weekend series there.

i honestly dont see how this wont be a regular occurance that cancels the nfl season

all it takes is one, ONE, dumbass to infect most of their team. we already have one dumbass nba player that allegedly went to a strip joint when he was supposed to be in his bubble bed

this is whats going to happen: the nfl will start the season, sometime very early in the season there will be an outbreak that affects at least two teams and takes out at least half their players. they wont have enough players in reserve to backfill, and will have to forfeit/postpone those games

following weeks will be more breakouts, and well before midseason they will shut it down

sorry

No reason to even start these seasons.  We're simply done until 2021.  Get used to the idea.

the teens and tweens mentality of being indestructible even messes up bubbles.   I cant see an NFL season no matter how tight things are.  Baseball is the most socially distanced game there is and we already have one outbreak.

I'm hoping this isn't true.  The Bubble approach for Soccer seems to be working.  We'll see with the NBA and NHL.

The close contact of Soccer/NBA/NHL shouldn't be that much less than Football.  

Maybe the NFL needs to go to a strict Bubble approach?  They could loosely arrange the Bubbles by Division and common opponents.  Then if a Bubble is infected, the penalty is easier to spread to teams more equitably.
