Don’t complicate things. What we know-most importantly what Justin Turner knew at the end of the 116th World Series-he has a very infectious deadly virus.
If he has the regular flu, heck, if he has the common cold and knows to be outside, it is wrong. Witnesses said that to fight with COVID-19 while ignoring Major League Baseball security staff’s request for him to leave the scene to celebrate after the game, this is Lure’s.
Major League Baseball and the Players Association have agreed on guidelines for games during the pandemic. One of the agreements requires the immediate isolation of all people who have tested positive for COVID-1
The entire Major League Baseball-league officials, players, unions, etc.-are about to get rid of the Dodgers. Throughout the weekend, they did not get a positive test for 57 consecutive days. But I warned in a column earlier this week that alliance officials still ignore the Utah Lab’s daily emails, realizing how even an active person will have an impact on their display activities.
Facts have proved that the positive results came late and cast a shadow over the Dodgers and the sport’s victory. Turner got even worse after being eliminated in the seventh game after learning of his positive results.
The source said that in a series of incidents, Major League Baseball was told in the second inning of the 6th game of Tuesday that Turner’s test results came from Monday’s sampling results, which have not been finalized. Major League Baseball may have asked to stop the game at that time. However, the Alliance received many uncertain conclusions during the testing process, and these conclusions proved to be negative because they included pollution. They have not responded positively for eight consecutive weeks, and the Dodgers have been in the Texas bubble for three weeks, where they are only allowed to get along with each other, and only allowed in hotels or courts. Coupled with the fact that the league knows the sport’s greatest achievement, the Dodgers are recognized as one of the teams that take the virus agreement (the agreement between the league and their own) most seriously, and, ironically, Turner is the leader to comply. One of the people.
Therefore, the Major League Baseball (MLB) told the laboratory to expedite the saliva sample provided by Turner before the game on Tuesday. During the two-thirds of the last game that proved to be the toughest season in history, the officials of Major League Baseball received information that made them afraid to open an email even on all successful days: Turner The Tuesday sample is positive. There is news to the Dodgers that Turner needs to withdraw from the game. This is after him in the seventh game.
Similarly, Major League Baseball could have stopped playing. They think that isolating Turner is the best option at this time. You want to know what will happen if you have to play the 7th game, because in this season, active testing in the team dynamics will result in a few days off until no one else on the team has contracted the virus.
The Dodgers are the best team in the majors in the regular season and playoffs. They ended their glory 3-1 and started the celebration. National Television Commissioner Rob Manfred (Rob Manfred) said Turner was in isolation. The Dodgers were asked to cover up the euphoria after the game. Turner uttered a tweet, thanking those who had reached out to help, saying he had no COVID symptoms, and added: “I can’t believe I can’t celebrate with my guys there!”
But he is there. Hug people. Kiss his wife. In the end, next to the World Series trophy and surviving cancer manager Dave Roberts (Dave Roberts), he slid down to take pictures without a mask. According to eyewitnesses, Major League Baseball security personnel-until the head of the department-begged Turner to leave the scene. But according to witnesses, Turner and several of his teammates resisted. The security department decided that they would not look like on national television because they were worried about contact with someone with COVID and aware of potential conflict with Turner and his teammates, so Turner would not force Turner out.
Look, I understand. Turner grew up in Southern California as a fan of the Dodgers. After the 2013 season, after Sandy Alderson threw him away from the Mets, he went from a traveler to a star. Together with Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jansen, he became the Sisyphus symbol of the Dodgers. He won the NL West championship every year during his tenure, but no championship. Therefore, when the title finally arrives, the last thing the third spiritual leader of the Dodgers wants to do is to isolate.
But, for example, I’m sure that every winner of each class last spring would feel the tingling and frustration of years of accomplishment because of the COVID not attending the graduation ceremony, but missed the celebration. Do any of them know that they have a deadly virus? Turner did it. He needs restraint. Exhaustion, confusion, lack of a strategy for preparing for such an unpredictable moment, the moment itself; all of these at least lead to terrible optics, and we hope that the worst will not happen.
Turner did not disclose it to reporters. The only official speaking at the Zoom press conference was Andrew Friedman, the Dodgers’ president of baseball operations, who reasoned: “I think people around (Turner) will be in the contact tracking network anyway. , This is how close we are together.”
Two things: 1) There are many people in the post-game field who are not in the Dodgers bubble, such as Major League Baseball security personnel, reporters, etc.; and 2) even though the people in the Dodgers bubble are near Turner yet Infected with the virus, why increase the chance of this change in the celebrations after the game? If people are sick, is Turner worth a photo with the championship trophy?
As a result, the Dodgers won the championship title that the organization has been unable to win on Tuesday night since 1988, and held positions in Texas on Wednesday, waiting for more test results. That is the 2020 season. Nothing is easier than this. In the end, Turner deliberately participated in a super publicity event, which moved an alliance official to say: “You can no longer write a horror movie.”
