Keep the season going. The only way the current .500 Tigers have a chance to make the playoffs is Covid attrition of the other teams.

I can only imagine what Aaron Judge's first free agent contract will be. Luckily the Yanks can afford it...

Not a fan of 16 teams in the playoffs.  The regular season—especially such a short one—means nothing now, since more than half the league will make it in the end.  As long as you don’t totally suck, you’re in.
In other words, the Mariners still have no shot

Cardinals game postponed, positive test. Possibly more than one.

Move to hub format or cancel season ffs.
If we're going to cancel games based on one positive test (which could even be a false positive, the tests aren't perfect), just cancel the season already.  There's far too many gimmicks involved already and 7 inning doubleheaders and the extra inning rule make this too dissimilar to real baseball that any championship should come with an asterisk anyway.
Well the Houston WS title doesn't come with one so I don't foresee this year's WS winner having one either.

No, there's no chance of an asterisk, officially, at least.  But individuals will place them on their personal lists, or consider it not to be legitimate,  just as many fans do with Bonds' records, or edter does when someone other than the Yankees win the title.

Dodgers (11 and 5) and A's (12 and 4) respectively beat the Giants and Asstros today.  A good day.
