Last night, ESPN's Jeff Passan reported Major League Baseball was considering instituting some kind of bubble setup for the playoffs come fall. Considering the lack of success in preventing teams from suffering outbreaks of coronavirus that sidelines them for days or weeks and causes games to be postponed, it makes a lot of sense.
Passan went on Get Up this morning to personally advocate for the concept, arguing that there's no time in the playoffs for a team to go a week without playing games in the case of an outbreak.
Points were made, and it's hard to find any ground on which to disagree with Passan. The St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins are the most extreme examples of what could happen without a bubble, but a whole team doesn't have to enter quarantine to tank the postseason. Juan Soto missed the first week because of a positive test and then a confusing flurry of subsequent false positives.
