Soooo much news from the weekend -- and not all of it bad. Reactions to COVID-19 positives, David Price's opt-out and so much more in the first edition of the Summer Camp Notebook:

Some other items found within: -Downgrading Mike Trout -Carlos Martinez's rotation spot in jeopardy -Trevor Bauer starting every fourth day? -Mets going closer-by-committee? -A new pitch for Yu Darvish -A new closer candidate for the Giants Lots of stuff!

Soooo much news from the weekend -- and not all of it bad. Reactions to COVID-19 positives, David Price's opt-out and so much more in the first edition of the Summer Camp Notebook:

Aaron Nola said he was exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19. He was told to isolate for a week while he waited for his test results. No symptoms, then a negative test. "I understand the process," Nola said.

My point simply being that the people who say the most exceptional things are often the ones who make the headlines, which can skew our perception of things. If the buy-in is still widespread, then I would suspect the season isn't in jeopardy.

Renfroe said there "has been zero people on this team even mention opting out" and they are focused on winning

There has been a lot of hand-wringing recently, which makes me curious whether this is still the prevailing attitude:

Brian Snitker just announced Nick Markakis has elected to opt out for this season.

Masahiro Tanaka had a CT scan at the hospital that came back negative, per Aaron Boone. Expects Tanaka to be released tonight. Says Tanaka will go into concussion protocol, but “we feel like we’re getting good news on that front."

With David Price opting out, the back end of the Dodgers rotation gets even more interesting. More length is available for Julio Urias and Alex Wood, and one of Dustin May, Ross Stripling and (less likely) Tony Gonsolin will have a rotation spot of his own.

BREAKING: #Braves manager Brian Snitker says Freddie Freeman is among four players who have tested positive for COVID-19. Freeman is "not feeling great. It'll be a while til we can get him back" Snit said.

To my knowledge, this is the highest-profile player to test positive so far -- and with confirmed symptoms, no less. I think in this instance, a downgrade is justified. Get well, Freddie!

We're all born to be jerks who leave pain and destruction in our wake. This is the Biblical view of humanity. The extent that we don't is mostly because we're privileged to be born into a time and society that allows us to curb our baser instincts.

Quoted @matt_breen

The Phillies placed today on the IL - Scott Kingery, Tommy Hunter, Hector Neris, & Ranger Suarez - were placed on the COVID-19 Injured List. Players can be placed on the list if they test positive, show symptoms, or have contact with an infected person.

This confirms what many were wondering. In these instances, I'm going to presume a short stay until there's reason to believe otherwise. Kingery would presumably still have time to be ready for opening day. Harder to say for Neris since he's a pitcher.

That's what July 4 has always represented to me, and that's why I look forward to celebrating it again this weekend. I pray that we don't squander the privileges we've been given but instead try to extend them as far as our reach.

Acknowledging this compels us to extend grace to those who succumb to those instincts but also to celebrate the times when people rose above those instincts, even when it was inconvenient and perilous to do so, to bring us a step closer to the privileged society we have today.
