Rob Manfred looking for the person who isn’t doing their job managing corona
The conversation between Manfred and Clark was not a threat but a reality check that was relayed to players -- and has spread quickly among them: We -- all of us -- need to clean this up, because if we don't, Major League Baseball in 2020 is going to be over.
Well, that didn't take long.
And they want to send your kids back to school.

Just like @bigjimmurray
said the other day. And yet Rob Manfred is the one getting dragged publicy when in reality one of the youngest teams in baseball just couldn’t act responsible... and it’s not even August. I hope the NFL is watching how this circus has unfolded in MLB. https://t.co/PPTtPqKGXz
Goodnight to everyone except Robert Manfred and everyone who thinks @PatrickMahomes
is the 3rd best QB in the NFL. #FreeJoeKelly
I feel like this should be mandated by the league... but Rob Manfred is too stupid to do that
Maybe. Just read that Manfred put the fear of God in organizations about pulling the season next week without changing behavior.
Because Adam Silver is smart and Rob Manfred is a moron the #mlb screen is probably going to remain a video game all summer. #nba https://t.co/OHRN67e3fg
That's if the season continues. Manfred is threatening to shutdown the MLB Season, because of Covid-19. Mistake from day one to play.
Manfred thought the juiced ball would lead to more action. Instead guys are swinging for home runs and pitchers are nibbling to avoid throwing anything near the middle of the zone. So the games are longer and there’s even less action. Well done Rob 👍
