Lucky Philly.

Looks like it's going through the Reds as well, Davidson and Moustakas out with it

Moose is a big loss.  Hope everyone set-up their teams with redundancy in mind and have back-ups at all their positions as much as possible.  This is going to be one rough IL season.

Realized this should go here for sure.  From BleacherReport I think:

Quote

Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez remains out of action because of "a condition involving his heart," according to WEEI's Rob Bradford.

Red Sox manager Ron Roenicke confirmed July 7 that Rodriguez had tested positive for COVID-19.

Roenicke told reporters Thursday the left-hander hadn't tested positive again but that Red Sox trainers "discovered something that we need to make sure we get rid of this completely before he gets on the field."

The team will re-evaluate Rodriguez in a week.

Bradford pointed to research that shows myocarditis could be one effect of the coronavirus for some patients. The Mayo Clinic writes that "a viral infection usually causes myocarditis," which is inflammation of the heart muscle. Chest pain, shortness of breath and fatigue are among the symptoms.

Again, younger and fit adults are NOT getting a pass with this virus.

Was just going to post this here as I couldn't find a 2020 E-Rod thread. 10-20% of Covid patients are found to be getting myocarditis apparently.

Seems that E-Rod was struck down hard by the virus too. No shares this year but get well soon dude.

From the Rotoworld front page:

 

Jeff Passan and Jesse Rogers of ESPN are reporting that eight more Marlins players and two coaches have tested positive for COVID-19.

As a result, the Marlins have postponed their home opener against the Orioles on Monday. The team has delayed their travel back to Philadelphia while trying to control the situation. This news comes just one day after it was learned that four players (reportedly including Jose Urena, Garrett Cooper, and Harold Ramirez) tested positive on Sunday. It was always going to be a challenge to pull off a season amid a pandemic, but MLB made it just three days before an outbreak presented itself within a clubhouse. Even with expanded rosters, taxi squads, and players staying ready at alternate training sites, it's fair to question how sustainable this all is and what the breaking point might be for MLB. This is a definitive day for the sport.

Is that correct? A “definitive day”? Doesn’t sound right.

The Atheletic has an article saying that it is 8 Marlin players and two coaches have tested positive as of today (Monday).

Opposing catchers, in this case Realmuto and Romine, probably should self-quarantine and get tested ASAP given the batters are breathing all over them when at bat.  Given the Marlins outbreak, if Phillies test positive as well it could be a season ender as it spreads too easily outside of a lockerooom/plane/bus to stadium.

Can't play Yankee game given if Phillies caught it they won't show for a couple days in testing as their load would be too small.  They need to wait a couple of days to be tested, and then the results would take a couple of days to get to Utah and tested.  Whole series would need to be postponed.

We aren't even 5 days into the season. Doesn't seem like this is going to work.

Took all of a weekend for this to happen. Just an incredible bummer and very in-character for 2020. Hope everyone involved recovers. Chances of this season being "completed" are pretty much zero.

There's a way to manage this. Postpone a couple series now and make it up later on with a couple double headers. Marlins might need to play all their games on the road this season or find another home Park like the Jays.

Until a few days from now, when another dozen players on a different team test positive. This is just going to keep happening all season.

weird that this didnt happen during ST 2.0

also hope no one stacked mia. ha

 

Stack a team

With the shortened season, we could see a Major League team have a hot stretch that pushes many of their players simultaneously to new heights. Managers can think of this plan as the season-long version of a common DFS strategy, as they try to grab several hitters from one team or a few starters and closer from a specific squad. A fantasy manager who correctly locates one Major League club that will far exceed expectations in this oddball schedule could ride their prediction all the way to the bank.

The only way to manage this was a bubble city or a few, like the NBA is doing. MLB players refused and thought traveling around was a good idea. This can’t work this way.

Again, a very small percentage of young & fit adults are not getting a pass.

"Definitive day for the sport" is absurd overreaction. For the season, maybe. But the sport?

Imagine if this happened to the Yankees or the Dodgers? Everyone would lose their ever-loving minds.

I believe this is the beginning of the end for the season.
