so more than half of the marlins team has corona. they've cancelled the game and now everyone is freaking the fuck out. latest is they might have gotten it in atlanta even and i guess they just haven't told anyone?
the best part was rather than informing the phillies they decided to hold a team meeting among the players to decide whether or not to play.

Curt Schilling, Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens were the closest in voting by members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America, but all fell short.
“Curt Schilling, Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens were the closest in voting by members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America released Tuesday, and the trio will have one more chance at election next year. It's the first time the BBWAA didn't choose anyone since 2013.
Schilling, a right-handed ace who won three World Series titles, finished 16 votes short of the 75% threshold necessary for enshrinement. He got 71.1% percent this time after coming up 20 votes shy at 70% last year.
Schilling's on-field accomplishments face little dispute, but he has ostracized himself in retirement by directing hateful remarks toward Muslims, transgender people, journalists and others.
Bonds (61.8%) and Clemens (61.6%) joined Schilling in falling short on their ninth tries. Both face strong PED suspicions, but Bonds has also been accused of domestic violence and Clemens of maintaining a decade-long relationship with a singer who was 15 when they met.”
And those were the top 3? I shudder to think of who is at the bottom.
