Justin Turner on Manfred referring to World Series trophy as a piece of metal: "For him to devalue it the way he did yesterday just tells me how out of touch he is with the players in this game. At this point the only thing devaluing that trophy is that it says 'commissioner' on it."
Damn.

The fact that the commissioner went on record and basically admitted that the union has him by his balls is a worse concern for the future of the MLB than the cheating scandal itself.

Manfred assumed what the union would do. Maybe the union would have taken the attitude that identifying the guilty would be protection for the innocent. Like right now, we have three years of Astros players assumed to be guilty by association.

It's probably been mentioned earlier in this thread, but that S.O.B. Altuve, who stole the M.V.P. from Judge in 2017, was wearing a buzzer in 2019. No doubt. Everytime I see that video clip, I am more convinced of that. What a piece of s***. The umps should frisk this clown every time he comes to the plate.

If you are one of the 4 people in America who have not seen this, here it is:

EDIT: Watch the post-game video with Ken Rosenthal asking why he didn't want his shirt ripped off. Altuve gives the lame excuse that his wife would be mad at him. He did not deny wanting/needing to keep his shirt on. And the reason is, his wife would be mad at him for exposing his pecs? At a time like this? That response alone is proof. If there is only one other person who needs to be punished, Altuve is that guy.

It has occurred to me that perhaps the Astros deny "buzzer" because the device alerted the wearer by a method other than buzzing.

I hate this territorial, you can only watch this if you live here garbage. Basically they used fake closed captioning over top of his joke press conference. It was a really good bit. I'll try to find a link on da youtubes over the next few days.

EDIT: This one does work on Firefox, so *fingers crossed* hopefully it will also work outside Canada.

That's good.

If he could be a little ruder he could run for President.

The last Lee Iacocca book was Where Have The Leaders Gone. Well, we have Eddie Lambert who has lined his pockets with Sears/Kmart money; Elon Musk who over promises, under delivers, and believes there's a separate set of non rules for him, and Manfred who has concocted a line of BS to cover either his laziness or incompetence.
