COMMENT: This whole Covid situation has made me realize how big a problem the Cards have with regards to star power. Even before this latest shutdown, after the first 5 games I saw how getting out of the daily baseball habit had made me reevaluate things. They just don't have players that I want to watch. Flaherty's about it. Sometimes Waino, just to see if a former star will beat back Father Time that day. Otherwise they've got no one who is going to draw me to the TV.

QUESTION: My parents live in a retirement center in St. Louis where there was an outbreak about a month ago. The state department of health did three sets of tests, each a week apart. The first two tests took 6 days to get results. The third test took over two weeks to get results. Yet, the Cards are getting tested everyday, and are getting back results very quickly. Is this fair? Is this the best use of these resources?
QUESTION: Will Rob Manfred’s relationship with Bill DeWitt Jr. give the Cards more leverage to keep playing when they can? Who makes the decision when a team is out, Manfred or the owners?
