Another day goes by and we have more bad news in the world of sports thanks to coronavirus. It just never ends.

We’re a little more than two weeks away from MLB games starting back up, and there’s still a lot of uncertainty in the air.

We know for sure that fans won’t be at games during the abbreviated 2020 season. That’s the bare minimum that’s happening to the MLB.

However, what will happen if several more teams get positive tests? Is there a chance that we just don’t get baseball in 2020?

Given what we’ve witnessed over the past several months with coronavirus, I wouldn’t rule anything out at this point.

Hopefully, the Nats get things under control before the situation gets worse. If they don’t, we might have big trouble on our hands.
