Mets Positive Tests Lead To Postponements Vs. Marlins, Yankees


Two members of the New York Mets tested positive for the virus with no inoculation—it has led to the postponement of games for three teams.

Given the .04% risk of someone dying of this virus, the Mets did not play yesterday against the Marlins in Miami and will not play the opener of their weekend series today at Citi Field against the crosstown rival New York Yankees.

Smart move by Major League Baseball for cancelling the game against the Yankees because driving crosstown means you’re in a car and—while latest data shows the odds of anyone under the age of 65 dying of COVID is .001%—the odds of people of any age dying in an auto accident is ten times more likely at .01%.
