I don't understand our managers infatuation with picking unstable relievers to close. How many games has our manager lost or almost lost by his insane love of certain relievers during high leverage situations. (see last 3 years) Plus what the hell was his thought process on leaving Bundy in to get shelled, then Bundy goes on DL, maybe should of figured out he was hurt before he was allowed to give up a ton of runs.

I think Bundy went on the COVID list. I would hope he didn't have symptoms during the game, although it's possible he was off enough to affect his performance. It's also possible getting shelled had no medical cause whatsoever.

Having just gone through covid myself (which hardly makes me unique here, or in any audience), I'll just say that in early onset you may still test negative, and the symptoms can be mild enough to make you question your own judgement.  In the space of a few hours physical weakness can begin to overcome you. 

Bundy testing positive right after the game leaves a very wide range of possible scenarios for how that day went.  Lacking more information than we have, I'm inclined to give him a mulligan, and hope that he's recovered fully so that his next start can be taken at face value.

Sorry, we've gone completely off-topic here.  Pagan.  Pagan.  Right.  Yeah, I have the same general problem with him, except as I've said elsewhere, I've chosen to be philosophical about him, and treat his appearances as theater.  High theater, low comedy, burlesque - it may not matter which, and I willingly give him credit for the first while accepting it may devolve into either of the other two.  But in no case is he killing me. Emilio Pagan's tightrope act is entertaining me.  You're entertaining me, Smalls.

Jkeady12 is spot on. When I watch the Twins and we get to the eighth or ninth when we have the lead, it is similar to ice fishing with no hut, you are going to shake!
