The problem for MLB is that they are going to be the guinea pig.

I completely understand the dollars involved and there is something to be said for the return of baseball being a national feel-good moment.  Imagine opening day on the 4th of July!  We could all use a shot of endorphins.

But is resuming the season at this point even practical?  I'm no medical expert, but how does MLB keep testing everyone to make sure everything is going well?  Where do the test kits come from?  Are the tests for MLB at the expense of needed tests for someone else?  Does all the extra testing create backlogs for results and the problems that might create? 

And what happens if September comes rolling around and C-19 makes a return?  If a small percentage of players start testing positive does the season end or do they keep moving forward?

What if MLB has to suspend play because of positive tests...does that affect the NFL, NCAA, etc?

I'm glad smarter people than me have to make these decisions.  I hope they do this right.
