Think of the family name that comes to mind when you see certain first or given names.

"Manfred" is also a family name, and today there was a statement from Rob Manfred, the Commissioner of Major League Baseball. And every time I come across him or his name on TV or the Internet, I instantly think of "Manfred Mann."

But here's the bottom line:
Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred told MLB Players Association executive director Tony Clark on Friday [today] that if the sport doesn't do a better job of managing the coronavirus, it could shut down for the season, sources familiar with the conversation told ESPN.

The league and players recognize the coming days are a critical juncture following an outbreak among the Miami Marlins in which 21 members of the organization have tested positive for COVID-19. Two positive tests by St. Louis Cardinals players on Friday exacerbated concerns inside the sport about the presence of the coronavirus and whether the jointly agreed-upon protocols are being followed properly to prevent outbreaks similar to Miami's.

Should another outbreak materialize, Manfred, who has the power to shut down the season, could move in that direction. Multiple players briefed on the call fear the season could be shut down as soon as Monday if positive tests jump or if players continue not to strictly abide by the league's protocols. . . .

There's more online.
