What in the world is going on over there? Sport all over Europe pretty much went off without a hitch - most soccer leagues have just finished up. Just copy the Germans. Always copy the Germa

no one could have predicted this....

Fitting that Derek Jeter would ruin all of sports and, by extension, America.

A few players testing positive won't bring sports to a halt.  But if an entire team has to forfeit games for weeks because of a major outbreak, that could do it.

In the end, players can't live without p****.  If they could, a bubble might work.

Ok so 10 players out of how many on a roster? Cant they bring up some AAA guys? I dont see this being a doomsday scenario unless the team literally can't field a roster...

I'm sure they have farm teams they can pull players from but this is nearly 50% of their active roster plus 2 coaches.

It's this thing called Covid-19, a coronavirus.  Pretty serious stuff.

It’s the reason they have the expanded rosters. Sports media panic/jubilation to be expected. They’ll continue to play.

It’s actually not that bad.  Baseball normally has 25 man rosters for a reason

Does NY not have mirrors? Subways were left open. Compare the mortality rates between states. Enough with this.

I live in a state that isn't stupid and is now one of like, 3 that have it under control.  NY is irrelevant to me.

What qualifies as stupid? Contracting the virus?  Give me a break with this.

It isn't under control.  Millions have vacated Manhattan for the summer.  Tens of millions are working from home.  Camps are closed.   When the kids go back to school and families say, screw it, might as well go back to the office, it's all over. September is going to be awful, October takes us back to April, just watch.
