Quick forward to 2020 and now at least three gamers have the coronavirus, with a fourth most likely carrying it too.
While Thursdays tilt in between the Nats and Mets, which was set to feature Max Scherzer taking on Jacob deGrom, was pressed back, the expectation is that the 2 clubs will be able to get on the field this weekend to face off. We can just hope no additional favorable tests come in for either club.
