I don’t like the minors season being pushed back, but the players won’t miss a ton of development with the alternate camp being a thing again. Now, if they still aren’t playing games in June/July, that’s a different story.
That is a reasonable alternative, but one MLB as a group discarded. With no alternate camp, if a home injury occurs, the replacement would have to be dispatched from Jupiter to St. Louis. Could turn into a two-day gap, not to mention exposure to commercial airlines, etc. Is a quarantine required when the replacement is brought into the team bubble? On the other hand, same-day replacements are possible with alternate camp nearby. A simple car drive for a safe one bubble to another move.
