Report: Cubs, Cardinals to play in London in 2020

15 Comments

The first London Series, between the Red Sox and Yankees, is still a month or so away, but we already have some details about the second one. Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that it will take place between the Cubs and the Cardinals.

Back in February it was rumored that the Cubs and Cardinals — or, possibly, the Mets and Nationals — would play in the 2020 iteration of this new series. Given that Chicago and St. Louis stand a way, way better chance of contending next year than the Mets and Nats, each of which are somewhat in flux, it’s probably better for the British fans that they’ll be getting the NL Central rivals.

No word yet on which team is the “home” team and thus loses actual home dates on the schedule.

Longtime Angels and Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds shared on his Instagram story that he is being tested for coronavirus.

The four-time All-Star, who now works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, has not posted an update on the results of his test.

If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
