Even More MLB Teams Benched as Attempted 2020 Season Goes Up in Flames

It might be time to just call the whole thing off and try again next year.

This is where some would sarcastically say that the MLB gets an ‘A’ for effort when it comes to playing the 2020 season.  But that wouldn’t be accurate.  At best, MLB gets a ‘C+’ for effort.

Baseball came roaring back to life just over a week ago, with fan noise annoyingly pumped into the broadcast, and ridiculous cardboard cutouts placed in the seats that would be most frequently captured by cameras.  It was creepy, to say the least, and an abysmal farce if you wanted a more honest opinion.

But, perhaps for the best, it seems that this little sliver of baseball is all we get, as COVID-19 again ravages the schedule just days into the season.

The sport has been back for a little over a week and on Friday games between the Washington Nationals and Miami Marlins, Philadelphia Phillies and Toronto Blue Jays and Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals were postponed because of the coronavirus.

MLB Network, and others, reported that the latest postponement was the game between the Brewers and Cardinals. It would have been the Brewers’ home-opener at Miller Park. According to the report, the Cardinals were the team with positive tests and elected to quarantine in their team hotel.

MLB officially postponed Friday’s game. Sunday’s matchup will be played as part of a doubleheader.

MLB was one of the only team-centric leagues to forego “the bubble” tactic, in which the entire league, from umpires to outfielders to the clubhouse ombudsman, would be sequestered away at a neutral location in order to properly monitor player safety during the pandemic.

And, as such, they are the only league canceling games at such a frequency.
