Inside MLB’s 2020 season plan to play through a pandemic—and where it could go wrong

While the processes in place to handle individual positive cases are dutiful and will be reinforced with even more specificity by each team, the language regarding the actions the sport would take with a deluge of cases is general and vague.
...
The general wording offers Manfred a wide berth—which makes sense because as commissioner he already wields the best-interests-of-baseball clause. The players, skeptical after months of negotiations had turned ugly, were reticent about rubber-stamping Manfred’s unilateral ability to cancel a season when doing so would immediately end their ability to get paid.

Will Manfred’s Lifeline be Adam Silver or Roger Goodell?
