Jeter and the Yanks because Jeter blocked his path to MLB.....
I know it's a ridiculous lawsuit

but I'm sure MLB doesn't want this investigation to get into the courts in any way shape or form. So far it's just an MLB investigation.
Thatís great news.

Maybe under oath guys like Altuve and Hinch will have to come clean.
This is real? Not The Onion?

Here is Bolsinger's case as to what he thinks he experienced, from his op ed in the WaPo:

Quote:

I remember the game vividly, because it was my last and worst​ ​in major league baseball. The stadium was packed. I live in Texas, so my wife and her friends were there. The Astros got off to a lead, and I was brought in during the fourth inning. The Astros seemed to know every pitch that was coming. I threw 29 pitches, and the Astros scored four runs off me in one-third of an inning before I was taken out. My pitches were getting smashed, and I ended up walking a few batters because the Astros appeared to know when to lay off. The postgame recaps said I had unraveled. I knew as I left the mound that this could be it; for a journeyman pitcher, a game that bad could be his last.

After the game, I recall, the Astros bragged during interviews about how well they had played. I was immediately designated for assignment by the Blue Jays ó which means I was cut from the teamís 40-man roster. I accepted responsibility for my performance, picked up my belongings and have never played in the major leagues again.


My view is that, if they behaved so criminally, and apologized so ineptly and dishonestly, its UP TO THEM
to prove HIM wrong, even if his career was already dying.

And, although they probably can't and won't do anything about it, how about the harm experienced by the Yankees and their fans?

The lying f@3king Astros continue to claim that "yeah, we cheated, but it didn't change any outcomes. We would have won by just as much without it."
