Bunch of positive results in the Cardinals camp, today's game postponed. And given the teams they've played and the teams that those teams have played in the incubation period, this might be it for the season. I guess we'll see how desperate they are to make money?

I saw that, rumours going round that networks are being told to find more programming starting next week so I suspect the season is about to be canceled.

If the season finished today, Teoscar Hernandez leads the league in HRs.

Well, it looks like a few Cardinals players decided to go to a casino after a game, and may well have caught it there. Well done, you idiots! The game for tomorrow is still on, officially, but...actually, I think MLB is pretty desperate to keep this season going. I was wrong about them cancelling it all today, so I will make no further predictions.

EDIT: After I wrote the above, I just refreshed MLB Trade Rumours and the Cardinals next series is cancelled, they'll play again on Friday. Maybe.

Marlins cleared to play the Orioles today, in place of the Phillies who are still cancelled.

I accidentally have the mlb.tv subscription as I did the 3-day free trial thing and for some reason my cancellation didn't go through. I usually do the reddit streams as they're (unlike football streams) absolutely perfect/non-buffering.

I remember when I first had MLB.tv in 2009, over in the UK, and the service was so bad that they actually refunded me. Reddit is fantastic for MLB streams, I might get them dropping out once a game or so but for free, it's a pretty great service. The only thing I miss on MLB.tv is being able to turn the commentary off - the Cardinals commentary is the dullest of the dull.

MLB.tv is an excellent service, but the most recent changes in Canada are to block out all Jays games so I canceled and use streams exclusively. Why they don’t want my $25 a month, I don’t know but there it is.

ANOTHER positive test for the Cardinals, and tonight's game has been cancelled. They were already due to play 55 games in 52 days, so...

I saw Ponce de Leon was starting, is that back to back starts?

So the entire series with the Cubs has been cancelled, and if there's any more positive tests (provided the rest of the clubs stay virus free) the Cardinals are going to have to start forfeiting some games. 55 games in 49 days is going to be a bit on the tough side.

And now the Cardinals series with the Pirates has been cancelled too. 55 games, 46 days. I'd have assumed that this would be it for their season, but you just never know. I wonder if they're even looking into something like split squad games?

I think you’d have to at this point - there’s the extra “taxi” squad and expanded roster this season right? Is the idea that (if needed) you could field 2 teams simultaneously?

It’s tough, I think I’d just take the loss rather than deal with that, but in a 60 game season that’s throwing in the towel. Are the marlins back playing again? Why are the Cards having so many games canceled?

The last time the clock was close to resetting,they had another couple of positive tests. I think that's the reason, anyway.
