MLB Fails Again: Coveted ‘Subway Series’ Postponed After More COVID Diagnoses

Yes, there is baseball being played in 2020, but not in any capacity worthy of paying attention to. 

The 2020 Major League Baseball season isn’t much of a season at all, and the opportunities left to salvage something, anything out of the campaign are dwindling by the day.

Sure, some Americans are just happy to be arguing strikes and balls these days, as the abbreviated season and empty stands still provide some sort of thing that sort of resembles baseball.  All the equipment is there, and the play appears to be based on what we’ve seen in recent years, but the heart isn’t there.  These players know that every achievement they make this year will come with an enormous, all-encompassing asterisk next to it in the record book.

And then there’s the global pandemic that got us into this mess, continually wreaking havoc on the schedule, forcing postponements and cancelations of some of the only truly interesting games we were slated to get.

Friday’s series opener had already been called off, after a Mets position player and coach tested positive Thursday in Miami, but MLB has now postponed the rest of the three-game set at Citi Field “out of an abundance of caution and to allow for additional testing and contact tracing,” the league announced Friday.

The Mets flew back to New York on Thursday night — without the player and coach who tested positive, as they remained quarantined in Miami — and underwent COVID-19 tests upon arriving. They were set to undergo an additional round of testing Friday morning to see if the virus had spread beyond the two positives.
