Wow. Turner removed late in the game for a positive covid test. So he can't even celebrate it.
Oh, but he can. He was on the field after the game. A test he took on Monday came back positive during the second inning yesterday, so they tested him again which also came back positive and they finally pulled him out. He was allowed to play with a positive test and took part in the post game celebration. Makes sense.

Inexcusable, since young elite athletes are one of the highest-risk demographics in terms of mortality.

He was sitting right next to his manager who is a cancer survivor, which makes him higher risk. I may have to go into quarantine tomorrow if it turns out my coworker who I worked right next to tests positive. I'm not all that worried about myself, but my son has asthma. He would have a much harder time with it. Being out there without a mask was a Dick move.

Now reading reports Turner was belligerent when told to isolate. Assuming Manfred has sobered up from Tuesday night, he's probably going to face some kind of discipline.

Yes but isn't Turner's personal freedom and the fact that he's a young, healthy athlete more important than that pesky cancer thing?

What's that last line of Won't Get Fooled Again?  Wouldn't surprise me if Pujols got traded to end his career as a DH with his old manager because he's jumped the shark with my team.

The Milwaukee Brewers have officially said Buh Bye to Ryan Braun.   :ebert:

"Brauny" has ten years of deferred payments coming, so he has that going for him, which is nice.

Nothing creates ethical flexibility quite like the possibility of winning games.

As an Angels fan, my thoughts are the same as theirs about Ausums.  Yeah, Scioscia peaked but Ausmus was a terrible choice from the start.

That's because Manfred is a gutless worm.

Yep. His testicles were removed when he took office. Was obvious in his lack of action with the cheating Asterisks

Speaking of testicle-less responses to (alleged) cheating, welcome back Alex Cora!

BWAHAHA, more Assterisk douchebaggery.  Former GM Jeff Luhnow suing team, claiming a Sergeant Schultz on sign stealing, and that he was scapegoated in an agreement negotiated between Assholes owner Jim Crane and Commissioner Rob Boyfred so the 'Holes could retain their Series championship.  Luhnow wants $22 mil+ in unpaid salary and his name cleared.  I hope he takes them to the cleaners.

I have no love for Crane, and especially not for Manfred, but if anything, Luhnow is a bigger scumbag than both of them.   Not only for being in (at the very least) aware of cheating in the sign stealing scandal, but it's certainly possible that he was involved in the scandal regarding stealing information from the Cardinals.  I hope he wins his case but only gets a penny.

Thanks, LABT, I was looking for another take on the situation, interesting.
