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.
Nationals-Phillies game tonight in jeopardy, sources tell @TheAthletic. Nationals dealing with COVID outbreak. Trea Turner tested positive yesterday.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 28, 2021
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.
