SJ - July 27, 2020

Well that didn't take long...  Baseball was back and made it through their first weekend before a team had an outbreak of COVID-19.

Several Miami Marlins players have tested positive after taking two out of three games from the Phillies this weekend in Philadelphia.  According to reports, 11 of their 33 players that have been traveling with the team have now tested positive along with two of their coaches.

The MLB has responded to the Marlins outbreak by postponing the Marlins-Orioles game and the Phillies-Yankees game tonight pending the results of further testing.

Does this put the entire season in jeopardy?  Some are suggesting that could be the case.  Of course a team had an outbreak and of course it was the Marlins.

The good thing is it's the Marlins.  Just remove them from the shortened season.  It's not like they're going to compete for the World Series.
