The Philadelphia Phillies have paused all home activities after positive coronavirus tests.

According to ESPN, the Phillies shut things down at Citizens Bank Park and postponed their home weekend series against the Blue Jays after multiple staff members tested positive for coronavirus. No players tested positive. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

At this point, is there any chance the MLB season concludes with the World Series and finishes as scheduled?

I’d say the answer is absolutely not. I have zero optimism at all.

Ever since the Marlins had a total of 18 members of the organization test positive while in Philadelphia playing the Phillies, the MLB has seemingly fallen apart.

Games have been canceled, the Phillies have now shut things down and Miami is done playing baseball until further notice.

It’s the definition of a disaster in the sport of baseball.
