MLB: Manfred Threatens To Shut Down Season
The return of Major League Baseball has not gone all that well thus far. Sure, the games have been fine and plenty entertaining to behold, but that’s when they have actually taken place. So many have been shut down now due to positive Covid-19 tests that Commissioner Rob Manfred has had to make it clear to the union that he might just have to shut the season down if matters do not improve.
He wants to see strict adherence to safety measures put in place, of which reports are suggesting the Miami Marlins were not following, or he will put an end to it. Apparently, networks have even been notified that they might need to look for other content, so this could happen sooner than later depending on how testing proceeds in the coming days.
