How can baseball not investigate and suspend this guy?

TBH, can anyone tell if there's photoshopping?  Is the picture available from a common source?

All the smoke around the Astros has turned out to be fire. And this is a lot of smoke, with lots of sources saying something about buzzers. This picture certainly isn't dispositive, but I certainly will be watching this with interest.

The bit about running off the field and coming back and the excuse of being shy is certainly eyebrow raising

It wasn’t in MLB interest to make public what happened in 2017. And only when the Athletic and Jomboy covered it (at the end of 2019) did MLB publicly speak on it. And MLB has a rather crappy history of ignoring things until they can no longer cover it up.

Definitely not an MLB problem. It s 'protect the brand at all costs, so the money keeps rolling in,' problem.

That sounds like the rational White House administrations have used for trading with China.  In other words, it's a big part of everything in a capitalistic society
