Ben Maller: “The Boston Red Sox have been ‘punished’ for cheating. I had to say ‘punish’ in air quotes… So now baseball has admitted two teams cheated on the road to the World Series and they have decided to do next to NOTHING… We’re supposed to believe that Major League Baseball didn’t find ANY evidence of cheating during the 2018 postseason or the 2019 season?? All of the blame is being taken by someone named ‘JT Watkins’, who I’ve never even heard of before prior to this news. The word is EMBARRASSMENT with Rob Manfred, and he had already embarrassed himself with the Astros story… The implication was that they were going to bring down Thor’s hammer on the Red Sox. This didn’t even reach the threshold of slap on the wrist! In reality, it was like going to get a neck massage and the masseuse rubs your neck a little too hard.” (Full Audio Above)
Listen to Ben Maller explain why he thought Major League Baseball and Rob Manfred’s handling of the Boston Red Sox sign-stealing scandal was an ‘embarrassment’ to baseball, as the Red Sox walked away from their unlawful operations seemingly unscathed.
Check out the audio above as Maller details why the MLB needs to stop acting like they’re taking these illicit surveillance scandals seriously, and then months later come back with a laughably mild punishment for the offenders.
