If you have been like me during this Cardinals COVID outbreak journey, you might have been keeping tabs on the Cardinals team plane. If you have, you will have noticed it now has a scheduled flight! Tomorrow morning it is set to come to St. Louis and leave for Chicago at noon. The team has not had any positive* tests since Sunday so maybe possibly the Cardinals are going to play?
The #STLCards have had no negative tests since Sunday, and if it continues through today, their season can resume Friday in Chicago against the #Whitesox where they’re scheduled to play 3 games and then 3 against the #Cubs at Wrigley Field. The Cards last played on July 29.— Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) August 12, 2020
Also Dylan Carlson:
#stlcards had no public updates tonight, but meanwhile team is making, planning moves that pave the way for Dylan Carlson’s promotion, so that he can be a part of team when #Cardinals get clearance to resume. @stltoday #MLB https://t.co/0qccGtuD9n— Derrick S. Goold (@dgoold) August 13, 2020
LITERALLY IN THE MIDDLE OF WRITING THIS THE CARDINALS HAVE ANOTHER POSITIVE. I refused to re-write this because this is so ridiculous, folks.
The flight to Chicago was just canceled.
Friday Cards game looks like it will be postponed. Hear a STL coach tested positive. Saturday not ruled out yet. https://t.co/tJwjPDJQU4— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) August 13, 2020
Or was it? I am so confused.
#stlcards are planning to travel to Chicago on Friday, a #MLB source confirms, and then ready to play Saturday vs. #WhiteSox. Swift move here: What #MLB wanted to avoid -- quarantine to competition. But it's 2020, so there's that. https://t.co/KidutiV4tu— Derrick S. Goold (@dgoold) August 13, 2020
I guess we will have to see? In the meantime, Adam Wainwright has been finding ways to get work in should the Cardinals ever play again.
How fun would it be to live in that sub-division? At least they get to watch a St. Louis Cardinal play baseball.
what else is going on in baseball...
Daniel Bard, who didn't pitch in MLB for 7 years because of the yips, now has 12 strikeouts and ZERO walks in 8 outings -- the most games and most K's without a walk of any pitcher. He has a 0.40 FIP.— David Adler (@_dadler) August 13, 2020
Bard's not just a feel-good story. He's dealing. ➡️ https://t.co/QWk1vx51Rx pic.twitter.com/0XAOI5QK8s
