Tonight’s Nationals-Phillies Game In Jeopardy With Covid Outbreak

Videos by OutKick

The Nationals-Phillies game tonight is “in jeopardy” due to a covid outbreak, according to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal. Baseball Twitter will surely blame the Phillies’ reluctance to reach MLB’s recommended 85 percent vaccination rate, but we all know by now that’s all hogwash.

The players that tested positive will be fine because they’re world-class athletes.

This outbreak seemingly began with Trea Turner being removed from yesterday’s game in the first inning. Odd how the game continued despite his involvement early on. Either it’s strange or the players aren’t afraid of covid at all? Maybe a bit of both.

We’ll keep you guys updated on the status of tonight’s game, and we hope it’s all systems go the way our country should’ve been the past year.

  1. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ PCR tests don’t work. CDC withdrew EUA after FDA said it was unreliable and CDC recommended a different test that could tell the difference between Covid and the flu. Now we know why the flu was nonexistent last year, because they were classified as Covid. This is the biggest BS ever perpetuated. Where is the spike in deaths and I have yet to see a hospital overflowing with patients.

    Also, masks don’t work. There are several peer reviewed, control group studies.

    But by all means get scared. Sheep.

  2. Plus, Trea Turner clearly looked like a sick man…..

    Thoughts and prayers that he survives something with little to no symptoms and a 99% recovery rate.
