Yea, you’re probably right. Just seems like a recipe to spread it all around the team and then likely to opponents. I assumed there would be something in place once the games start and you are mixing players from different teams, but probably not.
“ The league has taken significant precautionary measures to ensure that the players and faculty are safe during this time. Among those are a three-week league shutdown if any member of a team tests...
Has there been any sort of decision on what happens if/when a player tests positive for covid?
I read somewhere KBO was doing a league wide 3 week shutdown in the event of a positive test, but haven’t seen anything on MLBs plan.
The owners current rumored schedule with a 7/29 start date seems very easily defensible with ST camps being shut down due to virus outbreaks in mid-late June. I think it’s a very easy to make the argument that there just wasn’t time to get many more games in.
I went looking for this the other day to see the impact of the lost gate between The NFL and MLB. Its not going to be perfect, but Forbes has these profiles:
It shows the Sox with operating income of $89mm with $199mm in gate revenues...
UFC has to put on 42 events for ESPN to keep the full deal. They need these events. I’d be pretty surprised if this one got a late cancel. Can’t wait to watch Ngannou/Rozenstruik
