At least Plesac manned up and admitted he went out Saturday night. Clevinger lied and then flew with the team. We’re completely fucked if he caught it, as we would be facing a Cardinals type outbreak.

Clevinger riding on the plane with the team after his night out on the town
is inexcusable. He has literally brought about the possibility of the
team facing a shutdown from MLB. And what does his behavior say
about his attitude to the team , vulnerable like Carrasco and Alomar.
A case of some of the worst behavior possible under the
current environment.

Nothing but being a total ass.

Clevinger’s violations came on the road against the White Sox over the weekend, as did fellow starter Zach Plesac’s. It turns out that the two were out on the town in Chicago together, Jeff Passan of ESPN tweets.

Really disappointing for Clevinger being that he's supposed to be a leader on this team. Makes me concerned for the rest of the league- we saw how quickly it spread among the Cards and Marlins. Surely these two aren't the only ones to have selfishly snuck out to the bars across the entire MLB and we're what, 2-3 weeks into the season?
He is not a leader, that is just the persona they portray him in.

He is a problem child that lives close to the edges of the envelope he can push.

Kinda surprised Tribe is inserting Plutko on Tuesday when Carrasco & Civale could go on normal rest pitching Tuesday/ Weds vs the Cubs & Bieber could pitch with normal rest vs Detroit on Friday.

Holding Plutko in reserve & allowing for some time to pass (for test results to come in) could allow Tribe to better set the matchups it wants over the next few weeks...

Well you did say Clev and Plesac liked to hang out and party together,

I can only imagine how nervous Carrasco must be feeling about now.

Tito coming back Tuesday right into a bad situation thanks to Clevinger.

I'm trying to figure out where they even could have gone. You can't even get in anywhere in Chicago without a mask and once you do get in somewhere you need your mask all the way to the table. Places like clubs and bars where you can stand and drink are all closed. Obviously if they went to like a homies place that had a house party or something all bets are off. Either way, what a couple of dickheads . . .

Jup, do you think that makes him more likely to be dealt by the deadline. I'm not advocating for such, but this organization doesn't seem to take to kindly to that type of player for the long haul.

Is there another starter that they would like to see? Do we see Logan Allen or Scott Moss get a start?
