I don't blame Cespedes for fleeing....guy may have been freaking out. It's an emotional time, and people act accordingly.

I'm not sure I see what the downside would've been to letting the team know he was opting out of the season, in any number of ways (phone, text, e-mail, have your agent do it). But I don't blame any MLB player who's not feeling like they owe a whole lot of anything to their team or their league right now. It's pretty clear that either of those entities don't give two shits about these players' health & lives.

“Obviously I wasn’t doing that intentionally,” Christenson told the Chronicle. “I just blacked out, my mind wasn’t there and I spaced out. I’m sure it looks terrible. I did it, but it was not intentional. I don’t know what more to say.”

The A’s released a statement saying the gesture looked “like a Nazi salute.”

“We do not support or condone this gesture or the racist sentiment behind it,” the statement said. “We are deeply sorry that this happened on our playing field.”

Christenson also stated that he was trying to “adapt” the elbow bump gesture to create more distance from the players due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

“My gesture unintentionally resulted in a racist and horrible salute that I do not believe in,” he said. “What I did is unacceptable and I deeply apologize.”

So, the Cardinals are stuck at 5 games played. That’s a lot of doubleheaders in their future.
