Jason Heyward Discusses Wednesday Night, His Teammates, Jackie Robinson, and More

Chicago Cubs

I won’t call this “wrapping up” the storyline on the sports protests this week, as it’s supposed to be an ongoing conversation. Instead, I’ll call this some additional context for what happened on Wednesday (Jason Heyward sitting out, Cubs not sitting out), and where things stand now on that particular topic.

The short version is that it now feels like the Cubs probably have regrets about not sitting out with Heyward on Wednesday, and if they’d had more time to meet as a team to discuss before that game, they would have sat out. Also, if they’d had a game yesterday, they would have sat it out. None of that is offered as an excuse, just some data points.
