As with anything posted on the internet forums like this, 'insider information' should be taken for what it's worth while acknowledging the anonymity and unverifiable nature of what is posted. That's not a commentary on anything specific in this case, just good words to live by in considering this stuff.

Got a link?

Forgive me if I don't really believe that story without a link of some kind to verify...






- I totally agree with you, and I hate the words 'source(s)' as much as the next guy. However, I don't have any desire to make stuff up to turn into some kind of cool internet insider guy. Mostly just hoping it's an isolated case that doesn't ruin my day of smoking meats, having a couple cocktails, and listening to uke on the radio. I do have a very good source we can leave it at that, hopefully it turns out to be nothing.

Given expanded eligibility, I would be very OK for teams to start organizing employer wide vaccine events. It is very consistent with how other industries are acting if you are including all the stadium workers along with the players.

Not getting a Highheat vibe, I'm sure ballboy will be proven to be right. Then again, my motto is trust but verify.

One player testing positive didn't cancel anything last year or in spring training. No reason it should this year either.

Sounds like Arcia...if that rings true hopefully it will shed light on credibility. They will obviously have to do multiple tests to verify. Testing again to see if it's true or not...could cause issues to the availability of the catchers on the team as well. Ugh, hopefully a false positive.

Brewersballboy did nail the Jordan Zimmermann situation last week, days before anyone else had it.

I don't know why anyone would make up something like this.


so we are cool with believing a guy with 3 posts... He may very well be right, but if anyone on this board is willing to believe something from a guy with "sources" and is willing to completely forget HighHeat, then so be it.

I need a little proof from a guy with no history on this board.

Trust me, I very much don't want to believe it. I am just having a tough time reconciling why someone would make up news like this, even if their only intent is to troll.

It also isn't lost on me that we are just over 22 hours from first pitch, and the Brewers have yet to release their 26-man Opening Day roster. Maybe that's normal, though. It just seems like that is usually firmed up by now.

Check the calendar...might be 1 day early but since Opening Day is indeed on April Fools...

The Nationals have a player that has tested positive on the eve of tomorrow's opener (Twitter link):

The Nationals have a positive COVID-19 test. Mike Rizzo said on zoom, they will "certainly" have to make some roster moves. 5 people have been deemed close contact. They open against the Mets tomorrow night.

The positive COVID test is a player. Those 5 other people in close contact will be put into the league's quarantine protocol.

April Fools pranks should be fun and lighthearted. This would be ... the opposite of that.

Per Will Sammon:

Brewers had a false positive COVID-19 test result earlier today, per David Stearns. They went through entire protocol because, at the time, they didn't know it was a false positive. Player was retested and it came back negative. Expect to have full roster available to play.

And Adam McCalvy:

The Brewers had a false positive COVID-19 test result come back earlier today, David Stearns said. At the time they didn't know it was a false positive, so the club went through all of the relevant protocols and, "We are now confident it was a false positive," he said.

Thanks for the heads up. Glad it turned out to be the false positive. That would have put a big damper on opening day.

Johnson & Johnson for me. No major issues. Chills briefly the first night, woke up just feeling like I had had 2 drinks too many the next morning. Headache, very low-grade fever, and tired. Sore arm, but no worse than a typical shot. By day 2, completely fine.

Feels kind of nice to be one-and-done.


I'm getting the JJ one today. Good to know I have hangover to look forward to. Might as well drink the night away tonight. [laughing]

My wife and I both got vaccination #2 yesterday. No issues for me. I drank tons of water and got on the treadmill for over an hour for some exercise (as instructed by an advisor). I did have to turn the fan on in the bedroom, though. I was quite warm! But I think that was related to the 84-degree day we had.

Count me as thrilled to have some of the process completed. I still have to be diligent and mask up and wash hands often, etc. While the vaccinations will help immensely, it's not 100% effective.

Good luck to any and all of you if / when you get your vaccinations.

I had my first shot of Pfizer yesterday. Arm is pretty sore but not worse than the tetanus booster I had a few months ago. Took a couple of acetaminophen 24 hours post shot and pain totally went away.

Got my #2 shot yesterday (pfizer) and my arm is slightly sore, about the same as shot #1. No other symptoms.
