Does the entire organization think COVID-19 is a hoax?

What gets me is that these sports organizations with their millions of dollars can't get a good grip on Covid, but broke-ass schools are supposed to open.
Disclamer:  I work for a school, and promise that we are doing our best with what we have.

Once again, the Marlins do something well and are ignored....

This year has proven so many things x two of which are how incompetent and irrelevant sports leagues are.

Teams that miss games due to the Rona need to just forfeit those games

There is no way the Cards can safely make up 55 games in 48 days. You know they are going to miss more and these DHs are punishing the teams who are doing it right

Sports needed to come back.... if they only didn't have humans in it.
My father is retired and baseball coming back has been the only bright spot in his monotonous days. I help him and try to keep him engaged but without baseball he didn't have something to take his mind off old age and the promise of being a mortal human.
But I am sad and disgusted that with all this money they cannot get a handle on this. People need something, some distraction and downtime that isn't just watching true crime and obsessing about how the world "sucks!"
I never thought this was a hoax, I still believe the media thrives on drama and fear, but that doesn't make them wrong 100%.
I instead, when it came to athletes, saw this as a moment that they could be the role models they have been credited with being for a long time. I never expected them to be faithful husbands and wives, or purely altruistic, or anti-drug, or moral. What I expected is this:
Now they know it isn't just about being the best at 3 pointers, or rushing, or home-runs (yes, different sports), it's about the service they provide by being the best. Sports can be an escape, and we need the least distraction from those individuals that are in that field to make sure it can be a unifying Joy in our lives. you don't have to root for the same team, but you can love the sport and respect the participants.
Unless they are a Los Angelos  Dodger.
Duck the Fodgers.

freddyV: Teams that miss games due to the Rona need to just forfeit those games


I essentially agree, though it really is all of MLB and all of the union's fault.  It isn't as if the Cards are doing anything differently, all teams are stupid because they all pushed for and agreed on stupid.

Didn't a bunch of their players go to a casino against the 131 page book MLB put out?
If so, the Cards are at fault

funny how they turned off the faux crowd noise when the fight started.

Even in a regular season, the days off are few. Just a few rainouts loads up a team's schedule.
