Blue Jays: It’s a shame if this is how it ends for Russell Martin

As we’ve received more updates about the Covid-19 situation in North America over the last few days, I have admit that it’s getting harder to see baseball happening this year. It’s too early to make that call of course, but things aren’t exactly looking good, and now there are even reports of discussions about empty stadium games again.

I hadn’t really considered the possibility yet for baseball players, but this whole situation has brought a sad end to the careers of a few legends around other sports. Vince Carter has almost certainly played his last NBA game (unless they do a no-fans type of tournament or something to settle the NBA this year), and the same could happen to a few NHL legends like Joe Thornton or Zdeno Chara, who had their season derailed as well.
