8-3-20 mlb season in jeopardy

UNDATED (AP) — The coronavirus postponed the entire weekend series between the Cardinals and Brewers in Milwaukee.  A person familiar with the situation says the decision comes after one more player and three staff members for the Cardinals tested positive for COVID-19.  MLB issued a statement saying the Cardinals will play four games against the Tigers in Detroit from Tuesday-Thursday, including a Wednesday doubleheader. The Cardinals and Tigers will serve as the home Club for two games each at Comerica Park.   The Brewers will play this week’s home-and-home series vs. the Chicago White Sox as scheduled.   Friday’s series opener was postponed after two Cardinals players tested positive. The team had hoped to resume play Saturday and make up Friday’s game as part of a doubleheader Sunday.

Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred says he’s confident his sport can get through the regular season and postseason without being stopped by the coronavirus. However, he cautions that there’s the chance that not every team might play all 60 games. Manfred says winning percentage could be used to determine playoff teams.
