If any team we’re going to mess up Baseball for everybody it would be Derek Jeter’s Marlins.

It sounds like the Marlins were beyond irresponsible here.

If this is it, and they spent 4 months essentially arguing about money, I wonder where this leaves Rob Manfred. They could have tried a bubble, they didn't, I guess we'll see if the NBA plan works. They could essentially say screw it and keep going as something like this was inevitable.

First game starts at 3:40PM eastern time today; I think there's a non-zero chance they cancel all games for the day before that starts to regroup.

I mean, look what's happening in the NBA with a bubble. Guys still going out and getting in trouble. No bubble for baseball mixed with dumbass pro athletes. No way this season runs 60 games. Chud, get ready to refund my fantasy money

The Marlins have more positive coronavirus tests than the Rays avg fans...
This does really highlight how fast this thing can spread without warning for all those deniers out there that think the whole thing is an over blown hoax to ruin Lord Dampnuts presidency.

if this was any big-market team (e.g., Yankees, Dodgers, Red Sox, Cubs, etc.), and that team lost 40% of its players, I'm assuming the official cancellation of the season would be only hours away. But no one cares about the Marlins, and their replacement players are about as recognizable as their regular players. So alas . . .

MLB flaying under the radar shady style

The whole "percentage of total tests to come back positive" thing is hilarious... do people actually think it's meaningful?

If players are tested every day from the start of summer training until the end of the season, that's somewhere around 80 tests each. If 0.4% of those tests come back positive, that will mean 32% of all players in the league contracted COVID over the course of the season.

Like... you see why the 0.4% number is stupid and completely meaningless, right? The only thing that matters is the number of players who get it.

Four more Marlins test positive. So that's probably 15 players now, or half the current roster
