Commissioner Manfred on the State of the MLB Season: “There Is No Reason to Quit Now”

Chicago Cubs

MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred acknowledges that changes on the fly are necessary right now, but even with a second team experiencing a COVID-19 outbreak, he isn’t ready to pull the plug on the season.

A statement to ESPN’s Karl Ravech:

I’ll try not to be TOO harsh based on a single tweet, because perhaps there was more to the answer. But saying “I’m not a quitter” when it comes to the question of the safety of a season you are not, yourself, playing … that’s not great, man.

We’ll see if these quotes come back to haunt him if there are additional outbreaks. For now, though, the season continues.
