Philip, he's not giving a sworn deposition here. It's one sentence from a much longer interview on a podcast without considering its context. To me, it's clickbait - and not something that would have any legal repercussions whatsoever.
MLB teams are not allowed to announce positive tests of players for legal (HIPAA) reasons.
They do announce when they put guys on the Covid disabled list, as the Phillies did yesterday with 4 guys including Tommy Hunter. Technically that is not proof the guys tested positive because you can go on the C-19 list if you are positive, if you have symptoms and are awaiting testing/test results, or if you have been exposed to someone who has it.
You could also find out if a player has it if he announces it himself on social media or whatever.
But the team can't come out and say it.
“The reality is we weren’t going to play more than 60 games, no matter how the negotiation with the players went, or any other factor,"
That comment trumps the other comments. He’s saying that “regardless of the negotiations”
Well then, why have negotiations? Why not say, “we’re only gonna have 60 games and we’re going to start in July” Why waste so much time on posturing that, according to Manfred himself, was useless?
That’s why I asked the lawyers in the crowd For their thoughts. Spirit of 66 is not a lawyer, but his comment was very cogent
Yes... probably mostly bad in Florida. Plus they tend to want pimento and other stuff in the south. I was in Georgia for a while and a pretty high profile place with several locations called Ray’s had a pretty good quality cake, but it had chopped pepper in it and served it with a garlic aioli. They had Old Bay in the kitchen so you could request it. But I don’t believe it was in their recipe. If you ever get through Atlanta look them up!
