The players blocked that, right? They didn’t want to be away from their families?
I thought they expanded their rosters for just this reason-if a few players got sick then they had some spares waiting in the wings?
The players did, but just look at the logistics.

30 teams x 30 players per team is 900 players. Baseball fields take up a lot of space. Where do you play? One rainy day could wipe out 10 or more games.

The reason the bubble may work for the NBA and NHL is fewer players and fewer games, all played in a small surface area.
