Marlins have four test positive

Recommended Posts

So we are heading to Miami and the Marlins will be short handed missing few key players.  We take two out of three and now they missing few players.  All the breaks going our way this season.

Oh, man ........ it would be horrible luck if the 1st-place Orioles had their Cinderella season shut down prematurely if there winds up being too many positive tests throughout the Major Leagues.

Anyone want to guess Friday morning playoff odds if we are 6-1 capitalizing on depleted Marlins.

At least the other 1-1 rivals all have a win (or two, I see you Tigers).

I’m worried they might pass it to an Oriole, or to anyone.  Remember, you’ve got it before you show it, and by the time you show it and get tested, you’ve already exposed it to a lot of guys.

it is highly unlike that the team that takes the field tomorrow will be clean.

Aren’t they testing regardless of what symptoms are showing?

Sure but as I understand it, you are contagious even if you are asymptomatic. So even if they test you every day, you’re going to be able to spread it before you test positive. Is that incorrect?

thats the main reason we wear the masks. Even if we don’t show symptoms, we can pass it along, and that’s why we wear masks to protect both ourselves and others.

No, the test should work whether or not you are showing symptoms.

Right.  The issues are that asymptomatic people in the general public either don't have the motive to test, or that there aren't enough testing resources to randomly test in most places.

Wonder if they'd consider moving Miami and/or Tampa Bay to a state that isn't as badly infected right now.  Maybe move them to minor league stadiums like the Blue Jays. 

Florida is basically on fire right now

I feel better after a couple of clarification comments, but I think I can be forgiven for still wishing our next series were against somebody else

    • This is the Orioles' fourth losing season in a row. Someone who's been a fan for 50 years undoubtedly remembers that the team went 14 seasons in a row with losing records from 1998 through 2011. Then the next year they made the playoffs and won their first round game and all of a sudden it was a lot of fun again. The good times will come again.  Can't guarantee it'll be next year, but they will come.  
    • You’re right about some things, wrong about others. watch and see if things get better. I think they will.
    • I think at the moment, we get the 8th pick
