‘Unfair Competitive Advantage’

I’m not going to let Canada tell me what I do and don’t put in my body.

MLB should simply have forced the Blue Jays to continue playing in the U.S. until this nonsense was over…

“Aaron Nola and J.T. Realmuto made up the Phillies’ starting battery in Monday night’s 6-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium.S Earlier in the day, the two men made news when it was announced that they would not accompany their teammates to Toronto for a two-game series that begins Tuesday night.

“Canada requires a COVID-19 vaccination for entry. Neither player is vaccinated and neither regrets it.

I just didn’t want to do it“,

was Nola’s explanation for not getting the vaccine.

“Realmuto was a little more expansive on the topic.

I’m a healthy 31-year-old professional athlete and I just didn’t feel I needed to get it“,

he said.

I had COVID a couple of times, super-mild symptoms, back when it first came out. When it came time to decide whether I needed the vaccine or not, I talked with doctors I knew and I told them my story and decided I didn’t think I needed it.

I wasn’t going to take it just because I was told to, basically.”

“Players on the restricted list don’t get paid. Realmuto will lose more than $262,000 — over a quarter of a million bucks — because he’s barred from making the trip to Toronto.

What’s money when I’m not going to let Canada tell me what I do and don’t put in my body?

Realmuto said…

“The unvaxed Phillies have the support of their teammates. Kyle Schwarber was pretty vocal about that earlier Monday…”

“Major League Baseball players who are not vaccinated against the coronavirus won’t be allowed to travel into Canada to face the Blue Jays in Toronto and won’t be paid for those games.”

{Thus providing the Blue Jays with an unfair competitive advantage. Where is the Commissioner and his duty to ‘protect the integrity of the game’? And what about the union??}
