Yesterday the Cardinals-Brewers game was postponed due to two positive tests. With more than seven now, there is no way the Cardinals can field a team or responsibly play, so assume the entire Cardinals-Brewers series will be postponed. UPDATE: tonight’s game is postponed.

This news comes less than an hour after reports that the Miami Marlins had no new positive tests, keeping their number at 18. it also comes after the Phillies announced that they had no new positives either. While it’s hard to draw any hard and fast conclusions from all of that, there is a strong suggestion that cross-team infection — say, between the Marlins and the Phillies — might be a smaller concern than expected (at least one of the infected Phillies was the visiting clubhouse attendant for the Marlins and was in close proximity with them). The Marlins’ and now the Cardinals’ examples, however, suggest that once a team starts getting infections its own roster can be quickly ravaged.

Cardinals COVID-19 outbreak: Team cleared to travel, return to field after quarantine and negative tests

  Cardinals COVID-19 outbreak: Team cleared to travel, return to field after quarantine and negative tests St. Louis scheduled to begin three-game series against Cubs on Friday at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. Barring the unexpected, that series should proceed as planned. Per MLB.com's Anne Rogers, the team will return to St. Louis on Wednesday and conduct a Thursday workout in advance of the Cubs series. The Cardinals will enter that series short-handed, as they'll be without catcher Yadier Molina and shortstop Paul DeJong, who were among the Cardinals players to test positive. They'll also be without starter Carlos Martinez, who was placed on the IL for undisclosed reasons.

Which shines the light not on the activity of playing baseball, which may not entail a super high risk but, rather, on the protocols surrounding travel, housing, clubhouse deportment, etc., to which individual teams are subject.

Yesterday Rob Manfred pointed the finger at player behavior, saying that they have to shape up or else risk the season being cancelled, but it’s not at all clear yet whether those protocols are sufficient in and of themselves, whether players simply did not properly adhere to them, or whether it was some combination of the two. There is a suggestion that the Marlins acted irresponsibly, but that may not apply to all of their infections. We have no idea yet what may have caused the St. Louis Cardinals outbreak.

All we know for now is that yet another team, and its immediate opponents, stand to be idled for an extended period of time. And that the very viability of the 2020 baseball season is in serious doubt.
