The St. Louis Cardinals were isolated in their hotel rooms this weekend after positive COVID-19 tests. How’d they get through the time alone?
In this time of doom and gloom for St. Louis Cardinals fans and players, there are still some reasons to smile.
After the entire weekend series was washed away by multiple positive COVID-19 tests on Friday, the Cardinals were forced to self-isolate in their hotel rooms in Milwaukee. Surely they had room service and a nice view, but being trapped in a small hotel room for days on end would make anyone a little stir crazy.
Thankfully for us, Adam Wainwright and Jack Flaherty decided to share what they were doing while they were stuck in hotel isolation.
I guess it’s a good thing that Wainwright brought his golf clubs. I’m sure he’d rather be golfing at one of the courses in Milwaukee, he seems like he’s having fun getting creative at home.
Jack Flaherty was supposed to be the starter for Friday’s game and without any workouts, he found a way to still throw in his room.
I feel bad for the bed. Here is the Joe Kelly miss he’s referencing.
Flaherty livestreamed himself throwing on Instagram, letting people know he’s still getting work in.
Flaherty’s in-room bullpen session prompted Wainwright to do the same.
While hotel isolation sounds like an awful 2020 remix made by an old Eagles fan, it’s great to see that these guys still are still getting some reps in under bad circumstances.

On Monday, the team expects to hear back about the most recent round of tests. Since the positive tests on Friday, they have taken new tests each day. With some inconclusive tests on Sunday, it is unclear how they are planning on moving forward.
The next scheduled game is on Tuesday against the Tigers in Detroit. If the team gets back good news from the most recent round of tests, they’ll move forward with the series. If not, the team may travel back to St. Louis to continue to quarantine until the virus is under control.
Hopefully this isn’t just the beginning of the break the Cardinals will have to take if they have a Marlins-esque outbreak.
While there isn’t any Cardinals baseball happening on the field, at least we can still be entertained by two of our favorites.
I can’t imagine how it feels to be stuck in a hotel room alone far away from loved ones. Monday should be a huge day in determining what the next week of Cardinals baseball is going to look like. If the team gets bad news, we may see a few more videos like this while the team is forced to continue isolating.
