Toronto Blue Jays players might be in serious trouble if they leave the team’s bubble during the coronavirus pandemic.

With baseball slated to start back up in a couple weeks amid the ongoing crisis, players around the country are gearing up to play some ball. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Well, if members of the Blue Jays leave the bubble, they could end up in handcuffs. According to Scott Mitchell, players have been told they face a fine of $750,000 and “potential jail time” if they’re spotted outside of the bubble.

According to TSN, the players are at the Toronto Marriott City Centre Hotel.

This is honestly mind-boggling to me that you can be arrested in Canada for leaving the team’s bubble. What the hell is going on with our neighbors to the north?

If I’m an American on the Blue Jays, there’s zero shot in hell I’d agree to live in that bubble. I’d rather sit the season out than face a fine of $750,000 for not staying in the bubble.

Forget that proposal from happening.

Why would anyone agree to live in a bubble with consequences this severe for leaving? That’s just downright absurd, and the players should refuse to do it.

At the very least, the MLB should bring players back to America and let them play here. Canada is apparently out of control.
