How was he allowed to play before the results came in?

And also, he got it while in a "bubble" proving how inferior MLB's bubble was to the NBA and NHL. They managed to play for months without 1 positive. MLB couldn't even last weeks.

What would have happened if the Rays won that game and Turner's test came to light? Delay game 7 for 2 weeks? Cancel it? Play it in another location?

Probably something like delay game 7 for just 2-3 days and then play it Friday or Saturday if no other positive tests come up. Basically wait briefly to make sure Turner's test was an isolated positive.

Holy crap Turner was on the field for the post game celebration!?

How is MLB and Manfred not getting ripped for this?

When the Marlins played that Sunday game in Philly that everyone complains about, every single player in that game had tested negative in their most recent tests, the Marlins did NOT have known positives playing in that game. Every known positive was not at the ballpark that day... yet last night Justin Turner tested positive and was let back onto the field.

What a disappointment Steckenrider turned out to be for us. Had some promise but ultimately did almost literally nothing for us.

It wouldn't surprise me if they bring him back with a minor league deal.

The Indians put Brad Hand on waivers in a cost cutting move....

 

$10M option, Cleveland apparently will decline it either way, they're trying to save the $1M buyout.

In a rather stunning move, the Indians have placed closer Brad Hand on outright waivers, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports (via Twitter). It’s a pure cost-cutting transaction from Cleveland, with the hope that another team places a claim on the left-hander, who has a $10MM club option on his current contract. Any club that claims Hand would be able to pick up that option and retain him for the 2021 season at that $10MM price.

Per Meisel, the Indians had planned to decline the option, which would’ve required paying a $1MM buyout. They’ll decline it if he goes unclaimed. However, Cleveland would stand to save that $1MM if another team makes a claim, which seems possible given Hand’s excellent 2020 season and generally strong track record.

 

Waiver priority at this juncture is based on reverse order of the league-wide standings. That’d give the Pirates, Rangers, Tigers, Red Sox, D-backs, Orioles, Nationals, Mets, Rockies and Angels first crack at Hand, in that order. Most of those clubs are rebuilding or cutting costs themselves, but it’s feasible that a team like the Red Sox, Nats, Mets or Angels could place a claim with an eye toward contending in 2021.

The Braves declined Darren O’Day’s option too. Only 3.5M for a very good Bullpen piece is cheap and I’m surprised the Braves turned it down. If he’s available the Marlins should definitely pick him up

There will likely be plenty of competition but I agree that they should try.

I say if the price ends up in the 5-6M range you bring him in. Exercise Kintzlers option but remove him from the closers role, trade for Hand and put him in at closer. 

Then keep Yimi, Hoyt, Bleier and Box and let the young guys battle out for the last spot (or two not sure how they’ll structure the roster). Get rid of Tarpley, Josh Smith, Yamamoto, Conley, Vesia (Sorry @Michael) and all the other scrubs that don’t belong in there and the bullpen should be pretty dang good. (O’day, Yimi/Kintzler, Hand in the 7/8/9 is not a bad position to be in). They also need to give Garret and Neidert another 2 seasons to develop a bit more and put some hair on their fastball cause it’s way too meaty as is.

Vesia can be optioned to AAA so it's fine.

It just remind me of this…

Jansen!? No way, you can keep that dude. Unless they want him to be the third string catcher 

Back in 2016/2017 offseason, it was a hot idea. We were "in" on both Jansen and Chapman. Obviously both would have been terrible signings for us. Lol
