Weekly Wrap Up: Will The Season Survive?

It has been a rough start for major league baseball. Questions like “Will they finish the season” and “Is this safe” are becoming more and more common around the baseball world. With outbreaks on three teams, the question today is “Will the season survive?”.

But first, how bad is the outbreak? 18 Marlins players have tested positive, along with 2 Phillies clubhouse members and 4 Cardinals players. It’s not all that bad, though. Although most teams have had someone test positive, it’s not everyone. Plus with a 60 man Taxi Squad, these players are replaceable.

But with COVID-19 mounting around the country, the questions has to be asked. Is it worth it? And while I think that I would give my biased opinion, I am going to try my best not to. So, is it worth it?

As a baseball blogger and someone who thoroughly enjoys watching a game, I would say yes. But to a common person who “likes” baseball, that answer would be no. It all depends on who you ask. To the commissioner of the MLB, Rob Manfred, it is worth it.

And in the end, that’s all that matters. Manfred’s vote is 1 million times more important than yours, mine, or any regular person. So I think that unless it gets really, really bad, the season will still go on.
