When does MLB's season get cancelled?



One whole team decimated with Covid-19 positives. Another team having to have their season paused. We can't be too far away from the season being cancelled, can we?

From The NY POST

The Miami Marlins and Philadelphia Phillies seasons have been paused.
The Marlins will temporarily take a break as 15 players — half their active roster — and two coaches tested positive for coronavirus over the past few days. For now, the team’s games have been canceled through Sunday. The Phillies, who lost two of three to the Marlins in MLB’s delayed opening weekend, have had their series against the Yankees postponed. The Orioles, who were scheduled to play Miami, will now play the Yankees in Baltimore on Wednesday and Thursday.
“The realities of the virus still loom large, and we must operate with that in mind every day,” MLB said in a statement. “We are confident that Clubs and players will act appropriately, for themselves and for others, and the data provides reason to believe that the protocols can work effectively.”
MLB noted that no other players from the 29 other teams, including the Phillies, have tested positive since Friday.
Apprehension around baseball had been growing as Nationals players voted that the team not go to Miami for a weekend series with the Marlins.
