While Major League Baseball (MLB) is trying to figure out a way to have an abbreviated 2020 season, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci says sports might not happen this year.

Dr. Fauci, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, told The New York Times on Tuesday that sports may be sidelined until widespread testing is available.

“Safety, for the players and for the fans, trumps everything,” Dr. Fauci told the Times. “If you can’t guarantee safety, then unfortunately you’re going to have to bite the bullet and say, ‘We may have to go without this sport for this season.’”

However, senior MLB officials told Fox Business on Wednesday that they are “near certain there will be Major League Baseball in 2020,” according to a tweet from reporter Charles Gasparino.

Dr. Fauci, who has made frequent media appearances since the task force was formed, said earlier this month that “there’s a way” for sports to resume if games are played without fans in the seats and teams are quarantined in hotels between games.

“I would love to be able to have all sports back,” said Dr. Fauci. “But as a health official and a physician and a scientist, I have to say, right now, when you look at the country, we’re not ready for that yet.”

He added that “if we let our desire to prematurely get back to normal, we can only get ourselves right back in the same hole we were in a few weeks ago.”

According to a report published Tuesday by Joel Sherman of the New York Post, MLB believes that it would be able to start the season by early July. There have been rumors that the season could possibly be played at Spring Training facilities in Arizona and Florida.

Moreover, the National Basketball Association is reopening team practice facilities beginning Friday for players in states and cities that are loosening stay-at-home restrictions, NBA sources told ESPN over the weekend.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
