Multiple outlets confirming Comish Manfred spoke to the union today and told them if things don't change baseball might end for the season.

Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred told MLB Players Association executive director Tony Clark on Friday that if the sport doesn't do a better job of managing the coronavirus, it could shut down for the season.

Should another outbreak materialize, Manfred, who has the power to shut down the season, could move in that direction. Multiple players briefed on the call fear the season could be shut down as soon as Monday if positive tests jump or if players continue not to strictly abide by the league's protocols.

I still think the only hope is going to MLB bubbles. Hotel, games and back to the hotel all in a controlled environment the same way the NBA and NHL are doing right now.

And I've said for months.. If we lose MLB college football is doomed. If adults making millions who aren't around thousands of students can't play by the rules there's no way college football players will.

Baseball has been a nice distraction so it would suck to lose it so soon.

Go Bucks!
