Mets and Yankees investigated for possible Aaron Judge collusion

Post by MrCrowesGarden »

https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/mlb- ... er-report/
At the request of the MLB Players Association, Major League Baseball is investigating whether owners of the New York Yankees and New York Mets had improper communications regarding free agent Aaron Judge, reports The Athletic. MLB is expected to request text, phone, and email records between Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner and Mets owner Steve Cohen.

The MLBPA's request stems from an Nov. 3 SNY.com article which cited Mets sources and stated Steinbrenner and Cohen "enjoy a mutually respectful relationship, and do not expect to upend that with a high-profile bidding war." The union is always on alert for anything that could possibly constitute collusion between clubs to drive down player salaries.

Are you attempting to impugn the impeccable integrity of MLB ownership?

yea im of the belief that every mlb owner is on the straight and narrow.

the mlb is such a bad product that they have to drum up drama like this to stay relevant in the headlines with stuff like this. 2 months from now, the investigation will yield that no collusion occurred.

You think they're deliberately portraying themselves as a bunch of colluding idiots in order to drive drama?

I mean, it certainly sounds like collusion to me. Also, that the Commissioner owes his job to the people in charge of the clubs is the thing that'll guarantee the hampering of any investigation, not the truth of the events.

Would they have the same energy if it was the Royals and Twins?

Make them pay high dollar free agent salaries for other franchise's cheap owners as punishment
