Pointing out McCann's hypocrisy. 

I'm fine with a piece calling attention to how someone who presented themselves in the manner that McCann did is now silent. 

C'mon you're smarter than that.  I don't like McCann's insistence on the "unwritten rules of baseball" but there's no equivalency between his blabbering about that and someone basically accusing him of participating in what's widely perceived as a huge scandal - like the worst think since sliced corned beef - and yes your name veered me off in the wrong direction.  What were we talking about - the unwritten rules of Orioles Hangout?  I haven't even read the written rules yet.  Hmm, having an odd craving for sauerkraut.

Man I haven't had sauerbraten in years.

I don't think it is possible for anyone to have been on that team for any length of time and not known what was going on.  Maybe a kid called up for bullpen duty but not the starting catcher.

Of course that's knowledge of, not participation in.

What the H is wrong with sliced corned beef?? Mind you sliced pastrami, steamed on rye would be my choice, but.....

Sounds like someone cuts with the grain instead of against the grain.

And then again, my mother, God rest her soul, made awesome sour beef, to kill for. Now my father was Hungarian and his mother was German so they influenced the recipe.

I have been called alot of things over the years but someone that goes with the flow.....

Couldn't agree more. Trying to suspend the players would be insane. MLB got the information it did because they offered immunity to the players. If they don't, I really doubt they'd have the evidence they'd need to get through a suspension appeal with the Player's Union. Hell, players can charge the mound and punch a pitcher in the face - and they usually get a reduction in suspension when there are twenty different camera angles and 30,000 witnesses to it. I don't see MLB prevailing in an appeal when they'd be using shaky testimony without a ton of evidence.

This isn't like a crime case where you offer a plea deal to get one guy to flip on everyone else. Without immunity, the Astros probably don't answer anything.

They definitely deserved punishment, but I don't see how MLB could have fairly figured out that mess without opening up a bunch of cans of worms.

 

 

 

Yup.  MLB is not a legal body.  They can offer immunity to anyone and anyone can lie without recourse cause they are not under oath.  Or is MLB a law enforcement agency?  I think not.

It's stream on unconsciousness - if that's a thing or a word.  I have to admit it - Maryland corned beef doesn't hold a candle to New York corned beef.

That argument makes no sense at all.  You should think before you type.  😉
