The Reds one positive could be bad news for the Cards if games with them have to be postponed. The Cards sure don’t need any more double headers but they do play them 7 times at Busch and 3 at Cincy.August 15, 2020 at 9:34 am #135240August 15, 2020 at 9:39 am #135241
Sunday’s game between the Cincinnati Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates is exceedingly likely to be postponed, sources tell ESPN. The teams could potentially play a doubleheader on Monday, when both have an off-day. They have two more series in which they can make up lost games, too.

The inconsiderate, negligent Reds have broken protocol. Time for all the shamers to start slamming the Reds and their front office.August 15, 2020 at 10:41 am #135249August 15, 2020 at 8:48 pm #135367
I dont really feel sorry for the teams that weren’t careful enough and now have condensed schedules. However teams such as the Pirates are going to have condensed schedukes due to failings of other teams. Is that fair?August 15, 2020 at 10:12 pm #135380
I am almost scared to ask, but what do you consider to be a better solution? 😉August 16, 2020 at 6:47 am #135383
Don’t really have one. Just unfortunate for the teams that were able to prevent it from happening to them.August 16, 2020 at 7:29 am #135385stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual

As the worst team in the league by a long shot, I don’t think Pirates fans are missing much. LolAugust 16, 2020 at 8:42 am #135387
Hear all Reds players tested yesterday were negative, boding well for their return next week

Hope MLB learns a lesson from the Cardinals and is cautious with Reds return to play.August 16, 2020 at 9:38 am #135403
If there are no more positives among the Reds, are you ok with them playing this coming Thursday, 1964? If not, it will affect the Cardinals schedule…August 16, 2020 at 11:12 am #135416Minuteman3ParticipantFree
Hope MLB learns a lesson from the Cardinals and is cautious with Reds return to play.
But we all need to hope they are ready to play by Thursday as the Cards do not need any more double headers on their schedule. One good thing from yesterday – 7 inning games go nice and fast.August 16, 2020 at 11:41 am #135422blingboyParticipantPaid - Annual
Reading the Heyman tweet is worrisome. I hope the variable incubation period lesson has been learned.August 16, 2020 at 3:01 pm #135460
Derek Shelton on why the Pirates-Reds aren't playing Monday: "MLB has decided protocol-wise that they did not want us to play Monday. What goes into that decision happens a lot higher than me. They just informed us that we’re not going to play Monday, and we’ll reschedule."

Brian, I am not a public health expert or trying to be cute. However, sitting out until Wednesday would make it five days in quarantine without a positive test. I am assuming Wednesday would be a work out day and a Thursday game. My question is: Would the Cardinals have been COVID free following a similar time line?
Is it unreasonable to have positive tests on day seven or eight?

They consulted with Dr. Fauci, but did he agree? I would sure like to see the data behind this…
MLB consulted w/ Dr. Fauci before opening up potential returns for players still testing positive. Belief is people still often test positive after they stop being contagious. Still need approval of joint committee to return. Many factors — presence of antibodies, etc. — weighed https://t.co/6yObYjTYbU

1) My question is: Would the Cardinals have been COVID free following a similar time line?
2) Is it unreasonable to have positive tests on day seven or eight?
1) No, they were not.
2) One would think not or there wouldn’t be a 14-day quarantine, but the real question is to understand the apparent disconnect between positive tests and being contagious.August 16, 2020 at 8:03 pm #135505blingboyParticipantPaid - Annual
They are all piling on a plane. If one then tests positive in the next couple days, what happens?August 16, 2020 at 9:40 pm #135523

Same thing that happened when the Cardinals returned from quarantine in Milwaukee – they go back into quarantine.August 16, 2020 at 10:13 pm #135525
In the non MLB world I dont think it was ever the norm to quarantine a non symptomatic person just because they came in contact with a positive tested person. Not sure why it is in this case.August 16, 2020 at 11:28 pm #135526Euro DandyParticipantFree

CDC guidance says a person should quarantine 14 days after exposure to a COVID-19 infected individual, even if the person remains asymptomatic. The CDC guidance does provide an exception for critical workers, e.g. law enforcement, food industry, etc. However, CDC guidance doesn’t make it the norm in all cases. MLB is an example.August 17, 2020 at 5:16 pm #135573bccranParticipantPaid - Annual
So if Carlos and Sosa are probably the first ones back, does that mean they were the first ones to contract it?
