Just when you began to think COVID-19 — at least as far as sports are concerned — was in the rearview mirror, it strikes at the worst possible time. Thanks to multiple positive tests, the Nationals and Mets opening series has been postponed.
Was told this morning Saturday “didn’t look good” for Mets-Nationals. Now the whole series is being postponed, per MLB

Beginning on Monday, the Nats are scheduled to host the Braves for a three-game set. As of now, that series is a go, as the Nationals scramble to configure their Opening Day roster between now and then. However, Washington is still awaiting the results of yesterday’s tests. If there are more positives, playing that series becomes a whole lot more complicated.
Hopefully, the Nationals can stop the spread and continue their season. Max Scherzer is expected to start Monday’s game against the Braves, which would pit him against Drew Smyly. We will keep you updated as more news regarding the situation is released.
