    LOL, we have Ken...Eric Kratz, Logan Morrison, Chris Sale, Chris Bassett, investigations into two other franchises (with punishments), the Yankee letter in FEDERAL COURT, Will Clark, the Commissioner himself who said on a damn microphone "it wasn't just Houston, we received complaints about other teams"....Ken and his sanctimonious cohorts just enjoy throwing all that into the memory hole.

    Indeed... very hypocritical.

    The reason we haven't "heard" about it is the publication you work for decided not to publish 18,000 stories about the other instances daily (while trying to keep the publication in business with more subscribers). They had one whistle blower and got 8 months worth of content extrapolated out for the Astros story.

    Yet when it comes to a Boston video coordinator that apparently goes rogue despite working for a manager implicated in the other scandal, a sealed letter from NY, apple watches, Thera-guns in Colorado, and cameras found in LA/NYC... all of that gets pushed away because they would actually have to do some real investigative reporting and possibly burn bridges with big market teams that play nice with them.

    And that's just the stuff they couldn't keep secret.

    Rosenthal going the Passan route of wanting clicks at the Astros expense. Don't feed the troll.

    I liked only because you posted the article for anyone curious behind the click bait title.
