  • How should MLB have handled the Justin Turner ‘fiasco’? An epidemiologist weighs

A star player learns he's tested positive for COVID-19 - in the eighth inning of a World Series game?

Turner was unable to celebrate with his team mates but then returned to the field for a team photo, pulling off his mask, after they clinched the championship.

"Immediately upon receiving notice from the laboratory of a positive test, protocols were triggered, leading to the removal of Justin Turner from last night's game", the league said.

"I think at that point I was like, 'I got a chance.' Snell was rolling".

In a sternly worded statement, the league said Turner now faced an investigation into his behavior following Tuesday's World Series victory over the Tampa Bay Rays in Arlington, Texas. "When MLB Security raised the matter of being on the field with Turner, he emphatically refused to comply".

"The commissioner's office is beginning a full investigation into this matter and will consult with the players association within parameters of the joint 2020 operations manual".

An hour later, that star player realizes that out on the field, his teammates are celebrating a title they've waited a lifetime for - and he can't bring himself to miss it?

"I haven't seen the pictures", Friedman said. "If there are people around him without masks, that's not good optics at all", Friedman conceded during a postgame video session.

Yet despite all of the great on-field action we can discuss about the conclusion to the 2020 season, a positive COVID test casts a shadow over everything that happened last night.

Analysis of a second sample was expedited, returning a positive case that was discovered late in the game, prompting Turner's withdrawal from the field.

Baseball insiders say Turner was asked not to go out onto the field, but he insisted, as did the team. "This is something that we're going to wrap our arms around tonight and in the morning and figure out where we're going from here". "Forget all that. He's part of the team".

Clayton Kershaw, finally and deservedly a World Series champion after so many frustrating finishes, called Turner "the rock in the postseason for us every single year".
