More than a dozen Marlins players have tested positive for the coronavirus and yet Commissioner Manfred is confident that the season is not in danger.
The Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred refutes any possibility of cancellation of the upcoming MLB season and continues to announce that the game is still on track.
“I don’t see it as a nightmare,” announced Manfred on Monday.
“We built the protocols to allow us to continue to play. That’s why we have the expanded rosters. That’s why we have the pool of additional players. And we think we can keep people safe and continue to play.” Manfred is trying to be optimistic that the protocols will be followed strictly and allow the games to continue.
This comes after players and staff test Covid-positive, prompting the club to lock down. Three games have already been postponed owing to the outbreak.
The future of MLB season is still unknown as nation’s top expert Dr. Fauci also warned, “This could put it in danger.”
Dave Martinez, Nationals manager, accepted that he was rather scared of this whole situation.
