Rob Manfred: Cardinals can finish credible season after COVID-19 outbreak

The Cardinals haven’t played since July 29, and plenty of questions remain about how they’ll handle their schedule moving forward.

The club is unlikely to make up all of their missed games. While MLB commissioner Rob Manfred hasn’t provided a scheduling model for the Cardinals moving forward, he believes they can finish the season in some capacity.

“I think whether you get all the way to 60 or not, that’s difficult at this point,” Manfred told The St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “I think that they are going to play. I think it’s possible for them to play enough games to be credible, to be a credible competitor this season.”
