With everything at Cubs Camp understandably tightly controlled, the manner by which players meet with the media is going to be very regimented. Thus, you have things like “today was Kris Bryant’s day.”
Bryant just spoke about a range of topics, including how the testing issues that halted other camps have indeed impacted the Cubs.
Players are supposed to be tested every other day in order to catch positives before there is a chance of too much transmission among a group of players or personnel. Going five days between tests is completely unacceptable if this is going to work. Bryant is spot on: we knew there would be a rapid adjustment process, but a total failure of testing? That cannot happen. Either that’s cleaned up dramatically this week, or the season is very clearly imperiled.
