Looks like he has signed off on it.  Let the free agent bidding begin.

Ok thanks for the link. It showed how DeBlasio could get in the middle of this. They probably gave him a luxury box to quiet him down. Loved the digs the writer got in on DeBlasio.  :crackup:

No one seems to like DeBlasio on any side of the political spectrum.  Not easy to achieve.

This seems similar to the Kim dynasty in North Korea.

This has got to be the most brazen news dump of all time. Friday right before Presidential Election to be called.

As much as the steroid era remains a debacle and mark on the game, at least enough was done after barn door was closed for stigma is attached to use as well as actual penalties. Thus, the disincentives to going the steroid route and / or knowing about it on a management level are at least a significant consideration for those weighing the pros and cons.

In contrast, how Manfred handled the smoking gun, headline grabbing sign-stealing issues appears as much of a disincentive as MLB security conversations were on field with Justin Turner. Pathetic.

baloney, he may have taken the brunt but he was big time involved with coming up with the plan and executing it.

The players dropped dime...they are forever tarnished, as is the franchise's 2017 World Series title...

Cora cooked up the scheme...he deserved worse than what he got as well...
