At 30, Cubs catcher Willson Contreras is as sensible as he is emotional. A day after getting ejected for arguing a called third strike against the Diamondbacks, Contreras was so over it he adamantly refused to discuss the ejection.
“That will stay in the past,” Contreras said prior to Saturday’s game against the Diamondbacks at Wrigley Field. “The was yesterday. I will not share anything today. I did what I did yesterday and today I’m looking forward to having a good game.”
Contreras resisted the temptation to blow off a little steam after Friday’s game — he did not talk to reporters —and was cognizant of not making his ejection any ore of an issue than it was. He kept it in-house — addressing it with teammates in the clubhouse — and moved on.
