ARLINGTON, Texas — Charlie Morton has been feeling a lot of different things these days.That’s understandable. Morton has been in baseball for 19 years, and he doesn’t know if this season, which ended with Tuesday’s 3-1 loss in Game 6 of the World Series, was his last.“I’ve been thinking about it,” Morton said before Tuesday’s game. "I don’t know. Will it be last time I put on a uniform? Will it be the last time I put on Rays uniform? Hopefully not to both of those questions.“It just goes back to the situation, what it’s looking like this offseason and into next year. I’ve just been trying to enjoy baseball and being around the guys and having this opportunity.”The Rays could make it easy on Morton, who lives in Bradenton and wants to stay with them, by picking up his $15 million option, with a decision due five days after the end of the Series.They could make it tougher by declining the option and sending him into what is likely to be a difficult free-agent market, and increase the chances he retires. Or they could make it interesting by trying to negotiate a different lower priced and/or incentive-laden deal.Adding to Morton’s uncertainty during his candid, and somewhat emotional Zoom interview Tuesday, was that he didn’t know then if he would get to pitch again. He was the Rays' scheduled Game 7 starter unless used out of the bullpen in Game 6. And his Game 3 outing, if it was his last, didn’t go well.“It’s tough,” said Morton, who turns 37 next month. "For me there’s the unknown of what tomorrow is going to bring. But, yeah, I mean either way, if it’s tonight or tomorrow. It’s going to be the last game of the season. It’s going to be the end of our quarantine.“I guess you can obviously juxtapose winning or losing a World Series. One you really don’t want to experience at all but you’re glad that you got the opportunity, and the other is the ultimate goal. I would say they’re just a bunch of different emotions in the nuances of just everything that we’ve experienced this year together.”Manager Kevin Cash and shortstop Willy Adames both acknowledged the tremendous impact Morton has made since joining them in 2019.“I know we really care about Charlie Morton, Charlie Morton’s family and just everything that he’s done in a brief two-year stint with us,” Cash said. “He’s made just massive impact. … He’s just been so instrumental in us being successful on the field, and just making us better off the field.”Morton said he has greatly enjoyed the experience.“Whatever the outcome, I just want the guys to feel really proud of themselves. Everything that was accomplished this year. How we conducted ourselves as a group,” he said. "Also the performance in the postseason, just to even be here. It’s been pretty awesome because I just feel like a lot of the guys or most of the guys if not all the guys in there had a special moment at some point this year.“It’s been a real honor to part of this and going into (Tuesday) win or lose I’m just really proud to be part of this group.”With a first-inning blast, Rays outfielder Randy Arozarena extended his record for homers in a postseason to 10, tied David Freese’s postseason record of 14 extra-base hits (St. Louis 2011), and moved within two runs to match Carlos Beltran’s record of 21 (Houston 2004).Among other things, Arozarena — who has three homers in the American League Division Series, four in the AL Championship Series and three in the World Series — joined an elite group of players who share the career record of hitting at least three home runs in three different postseason series, per Stats LLC. The others, alphabetically: Jose Altuve, Beltran, Mickey Mantle and Babe Ruth.He also became the second rookie to hit three homers in a Series, joining Charlie Keller who hit three for the Yankees in 1939, and the first rookie to have an RBI in four straight Series games. (Cincinnati’s Pat Duncan knocked in runs in four straight in 1919 but RBIs became an official stat in 1920.)Arozarena also broke Evan Longoria’s Rays career record of nine postseason homers.Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner was pulled from Game 6 during the eighth inning after Major League Baseball told the team that his most recent coronavirus test came up positive. “We learned during the game Justin tested positive, and he was immediately isolated to prevent spread,” commissioner Rob Manfred said after presenting Los Angeles with the championship trophy. Turner posted on Twitter that he felt “great, no symptoms at all.” He initially was not on the field as Los Angeles celebrated but eventually joined the rest of the team there. Fox reported that he was asked not to go on the field but he and the Dodgers insisted on it. He wore a mask for a time but took it off as the Dodgers posed for photos with the trophy. Others also weren’t wearing masks for the photos. All players were tested daily inside the postseason bubble, and no major-leaguer had tested positive until Turner.If the Dodgers had lost Game 6, the positive test could have complicated the efforts to play a Game 7. Before the players entered the bubble, the league had halted games of teams on which a player had tested positive, to allow for enough testing to see whether an infection had spread within the team.Cash made only slight changes to the Rays lineup, mostly, as he said “changing the spots and keeping the faces" against Dodgers rookie Tony Gonsolin, who lasted only 1 2/3 innings. Most noteworthy was moving lefty hitting Ji-Man Choi to the leadoff spot, hoping he provided “a spark.” Choi hit leadoff seven times during the season, going only 3-for-26. He was the record seventh different leadoff hitter the Rays used in 20 postseason games. … Cash also stuck with Austin Meadows and batted him third, despite his quiet performance, 2-for-23 in the first five Series games and 6-for-48 in the postseason. Cash said pre-game they still had faith in Meadows: “He’s going to get a big hit for us. Confident in that. You look at his last couple at-bats and games, the timing is starting to get there. … Austin is such a big part of our team.” Meadows singled in the first inning, then struck out and grounded out.Arozarena’s home run made it five straight games with a run scored in the top of the first, the longest such streak in Series history. … With an outside temperature of 39, a feels-like in the mid-30s and rain in the forecast, the roof at Globe Life Field was (thankfully) closed. … Several Rays said they enjoyed playing in front of fans, Cash noting the crowds of about 11,500 have sounded much louder, and about 80 percent pro-Dodgers. … Manuel Margot’s attempted steal of home in Game 5 was the first in Series play since St. Louis' Lonnie Smith was caught in 1982 vs. Milwaukee.
