    I'm probably going to hold my fantasy football players out due to the virus.

    Probably not the best scenario, but likely the only one...I mean is there really a difference between the O's NS Marlins big league club and AAA anyway? :D

    I know of three people that have had FALSE positives test results for that virus... I don't trust the testers and the state of Florida test sites.

    I'd take that test again somewhere else.

    Marlins also just acquired on of our own, P Justin Shafer from the Reds. I would not want to play or even travel anywhere near SE Florida.

    All football players should be told to hold their breath during pile-ups. That includes no trash talking or biting. Also there is to be no eye-gouging, as they can't wash their hands first.

    "During an appearance in the 5:00-5:15 block on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh, Nightengale reported that "at least" one Marlins player, possibly more, left the team hotel and went out while in Atlanta, days before the season began."

    Marlins outbreak came from night out in Atlanta: report

    Given the nature of the transgression, I'm sure the name will be leaked. Based solely on his personality and being one of the first diagnosed, I'd place money that Urena was the player.

    This was interesting... appears there is still a mandatory FL quarantine for folks from NY (emphasis mine):

    "If, instead, the Marlins play that series in Philadelphia, they could bus to New York to face the Mets, then bus to Buffalo, New York, where the Blue Jays plan to play their home games this season. In that scenario, the Marlins would not return home until their Aug. 14 series against Atlanta, though Miami-Dade County currently requires a 14-day quarantine for people coming into the area from New York, further complicating matters."

    Source: Positive test raises Marlins' total to 19

    Juan Soto of the Nationals tested positive around 10 days ago. Since then he has had three more tests all of which came back negative and has been cleared to play. The Nationals were scheduled to play the Marlins this weekend and for obvious reasons the games have been postponed. Soto will be playing when their season resumes against the Mets on Tuesday.

    My guess is that the Marlins players who tested positive are being retested and if they test negative three times in a row they will be cleared to play.
