I don’t really care much about “Dancing with the Stars,” but (a) I like David Ross; and (b) I love the company he’s keeping at the bottom of the betting odds. Via Bovada:
Odds to Win Season 24 of Dancing with the Stars
- Simone Biles: 4/1
- Heather Morris: 5/1
- Bonner Bolton: 6/1
- Normani Kordei: 6/1
- Charo: 15/2
- Erika Jayne: 15/2
- Rashad Jennings: 10/1
- Nancy Kerrigan: 10/1
- Nick Viall: 12/1
- Chris Kattan: 16/1
- David Ross: 16/1
- Mr. T: 25/1
First of all, I pity the fool who sleeps on Mr. T’s chances. Second of all, Charo is still alive? Third of all, I wonder if Chris Kattan watches “The Tonight Show” with a stiff drink and mutters to himself about how things might’ve been different if “Mr. Peepers” had gone over as big as he had hoped it would. So many questions.
Also: I wonder if there is any way for any of the other contestants to give themselves an edge over Nancy Kerrigan if they meet her in the finals. I can’t think of any to be honest.
MILWAUKEE — The Brewers had two players and a staff member test positive for the coronavirus at their alternate training site in Appleton, Wisconsin.
Milwaukee president of baseball operations David Stearns confirmed the positive results Saturday and said they shouldn’t impact the major league team. Teams are using alternate training sites this season to keep reserve players sharp because the minor league season was canceled due to the pandemic.
Stearns said the positive tests came Monday and did not name the two players or the staff member. Players must give their permission for their names to be revealed after positive tests.
The entire camp was placed in quarantine.
“We have gone through contact tracing,” Stearns said. “We do not believe it will have any impact at all on our major league team. We’ve been fortunate to get through this season relatively unscathed in this area. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to get all the way there at our alternate site.”
Milwaukee entered Saturday one game behind the Reds and Cardinals for second place in the NL Central, with the top two teams qualifying for the postseason.
The Brewers still will be able to take taxi squad players with them on the team’s trip to Cincinnati and St. Louis in the final week of the season. He said those players have had repeated negative tests and the team is “confident” there would be no possible spread of the virus.
“Because of the nature of who these individuals were, it’s really not going to affect the quarantine group at all,” Stearns said. “We’re very fortunate that the group of players who could potentially be on a postseason roster for us aren’t interacting all that much with the individuals that tested positive.”
