Chris Sale Is An Excellent Pitcher. He's Also A Grade-A Moron.

In November 2020, Chris Sale became a father for the third time. His other children were ages nine and three.

Sale contracted COVID-19 two months later, in January 2021. He did not get vaccinated.

Sale contracted COVID-19 for the second time in September 2021. He remains unvaccinated. And he lives in Florida, which has been a COVID petri dish for months. In July, the state accounted for one out of every five new cases in the US.

At least 120,000 children in the US have had parents or caregivers die during the pandemic.

June 2021: Nearly All Covid Deaths In US Now Among Unvaccinated

COVID cases in fully-vaccinated people accounted for 1,200 of more than 853,000 hospitalizations in the US (0.1%). Only 150 of more than 18,000 Covid-19-related deaths were fully-vaccinated people, (0.8%).  CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky: "Nearly every death, especially among adults, due to COVID-19, is, at this point, entirely preventable."

August 2021: CDC Study: Unvaccinated People Are 29 Times More Likely To Be Hospitalized With Covid-19

Moron, yeah, kind of a rotten spot in the clubhouse where there ought to be some maturity and leadership.

Before retiring I was in three unions and was twice a contract negotiator, so I am not naturally in sympathy with management, but when the contract is up this winter, the owners ought to hammer the MLBPA over this "choice" not to get vaccinated.

Just deleted two amusing comments:

Both of them mentioned that "the Führer" (whoever that is) approves of this post. Also I learned that my "cool blogging job" (it's not a job; I don't get paid) consists of being "a mouthpiece for mainstream media propaganda" (an odd claim, since 99% of the time I'm trashing the mainstream media as anti-progress, anti-labor, anti-working-class, anti-peace, anti-equality, and a purveyor of non-stop pro-capitalist-and-right-wing-status-quo-propaganda).

I was wondering about comments. Cut-and-paste trolls!
