2020 officially cannot get any more insane. As all Dodgers fans are rejoicing in their first World Series win since 1988, some weird news came down from the MLB.
Justin Turner was pulled from the game due to a positive test for the Coronavirus.

I’m trying to focus on Manfred’s response here, but his slur actually makes it seem like he’s hammered right now. Nonetheless, this seems like a major mishap on Manfred and the MLBs part. How do you not have test results back before the game?
Luckily, it seems like Justin Turner is doing just fine.
Thanks to everyone reaching out! I feel great, no symptoms at all. Just experienced every emotion you can possibly imagine. Can’t believe I couldn’t be out there to celebrate with my guys! So proud of this team & unbelievably happy for the City of LA#WorldSeriesChamps

Here are some reactions to a bizarre moment with Turner.
It's so perfect that Rob Manfred is about to boast about finishing the season while the whole WS Championship roster probably has Covid now.

In all seriousness, I hope Justin Turner is OK. I also hope that this doesn’t result in an outbreak between the Dodgers and the Rays.
the Dodgers are continuing their celebration, for now, but keep an eye on this story. It’ll be interesting to see if any other positive test come forward in the coming days.
