Of course. That's the whole deal. It also allows owners to not spend and argue they are a playoff contender. Good news around for this bunch.

We are not as good as the best team in the AL without our best player. Who knew?

It's one game. And Cole is not that sharp.

I've never seen so many 3-1 flyouts in my life.

Over a quarter of our games this season are against the Marlins and Orioles so it'll be alright.

Whoever reaches October without their entire team on the IL or in quarantine will be king.

So if he tested negative then why didn't he play? Just exercising caution?

looks like the first test earlier in the day was positive and then two tests later on were negative. so yeah out of caution they kept him out. could be a false positive or it could be false negatives but you can't be totally sure. i guess now if he has two negative tests 24 hours apart though he's allowed to come off the virus protocols, so if he tests negative again today maybe he can play tomorrow?

i can't find anything that's 100% clear on that rule, or if now that he's been placed on the COVID IL he has to stay on it for all 14 days.

So it feels like a missed opportunity for MLB not to have a 1pm game today when there are no sports on TV. Why couldn’t they stagger the games?

Th y do have one at 4... Likely figure most people will still be busy with work at home at 1. But agreed... they missed the boat on this one.

Yeah, even if it's a weekday I gathered a number of people working from home could have a game on the background (like I think the NBA and the NHL will be doing).

Anyways, at least we get a good 4pm game. Looking forward to seeing Cespedes in an actual game.

I forgot how to watch this many games at once.

This is too fun.

My team isn't even playing and I'm ecstatic. Flipping from game to game, basically.

Shane Bieber is a beast.
