Well, the Dodgers won, which sucks, and Justin Turner ran out and took the opportunity to re-infect his teammates, who should be outraged but apparently are not, and meanwhile life goes on for most of us in this, the first year of the new reality.

Here at Cub Tracks News and Notes, we are closing in on our eighth anniversary overall and also it’s my birthday. I’m not planning any big celebrations. I am planning to invoke my spirit animal, the giant ground sloth, instead of all the time channeling Howard Beale, and to consume leafy greens, and perhaps to consult the experts at Doordash for cheesy comestibles.

In a statement released Wednesday, MLB said Turner “chose to disregard the agreed-upon joint protocols and the instructions he was given.”

“While a desire to celebrate is understandable, Turner’s decision to leave isolation and enter the field was wrong and put everyone he came in contact with at risk,” the statement read. “When MLB Security raised the matter of being on the field with Turner, he emphatically refused to comply.”
