    What does CDC say to do if you’re tested positive without symptoms. Isn’t that the procedure that MLB is following?

    No, it is not. I am not an expert on the CDC, but doubt they have weighed in on the detailed particulars of how professional sports teams operate.

    MLB developed an Operations Manual from a number of sources (almost certainly including the CDC) and submitted it to the MLBPA. The union made their recommended changes and the two settled on a 101-page document. That set the rules that all teams are following.

    Regardless they are getting constantly tested and will be around others who are getting constantly tested.

    Absolutely. I did not mean to suggest the protocols are a problem at all. Tier 1, including players, coaches, and the other support people close to the team, are required to have temperature checks twice daily and diagnostic testing every other day all season long.

    Delays in the testing process are hurting some teams’ preparation plans. In fact, the Cardinals have delayed their workout today, but they did not say why. It could be weather or something else.

    The Nats’ GM is rightfully upset.

    Players are concerned with the process, too.

    At least according to them, the slackers do not include the Cardinals. Just yesterday, Shildt reinforced that they are erring on the side of caution compared to MLB’s defined protocols.

    Another hit for the Braves after Freeman… On that team, Felix Hernandez is also sitting out.

    Utah lab at center of MLB’s plan to return to play this summer

    In laying out how the league plans to protect players and personnel against COVID-19, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said the league has paid to equip a lab with the ability to process thousands of tests each week. That facility is the Sports Medicine Research and Testing Laboratory in South Jordan.

    “We paid, made an investment, to convert them over to do the testing that we need in order to play,” Manfred said.

    SMRTL was selected at least in part because of its guarantee of quick results.

    If too many opt out, this will be a really hollow season and championship.

    No workouts for the Cardinals today. There cannot be a season without testing.

    Brian, any chance of getting that Addler tweet reposted in readable form. I don’t don’t twitter so can’t do directly there.

    MM3, here’s a link to the MLB statement in Adler’s tweet.

    By the way, in case you don’t know, you don’t need a twitter account to access the tweet. Just click on the Adler tweet above, then click on the picture within the tweet (the statement is posted as a pic within the tweet).

    Thanks ED for that info. I just came back from a Cat Scan looking for blood clots in my lungs and was not on par with reading that tweet. BTW I never got it straight on Twitter but your line got it up fine and made me realize that I have MLB.com on the computer and have not been going to it because when I gave up they didn’t ever have much on it during the virus. Good reminder to check there more often. Again, thanks for waking me up to the baseball world again.
    PS: NO blood clots..Hooray.

    Despite not having ump’d a game this season Joe West is already in peak mid-season form with missed calls.

    I wonder how much of this is being driven by his upcoming personal record for games worked. That is noted in the story.

    But discussing West’s view of the virus is only going to cause those who want to share their personal views on the matter again to take us off the track of baseball. Let’s just stay away from that. Thanks.

    On an off topic note that I hope is ok here…how are you doing, BHC? I’m glad to see you back here. I’ve been thinking of/praying for you and your family.

    Speaking of posters we haven’t seen in awhile has anyone heard anything out of Pugs? I hope something bad hasn’t happened and I am the only one that doesn’t know about it.
