A letter containing information about the 2015 and 2016 Yankees sign-stealing investigations will be made public in about a week, and Astros fans are waiting for it to be released just as Democrats have predicted the outcome. Robert Mueller’s Trump investigation results.
The team and MLB have been fighting to release what is creatively named, “Yankees Letter,” and on Thursday the organization lost a lawsuit to keep the letter private. according to The Athletic.
Here’s what team president Randy Levine had to say about the results.
“We are very disappointed by the decision of the Court of Appeal, but we respect it. However, I believe that as described in my petition, this will lead to many bad results later on. ”
The letter originated from a lawsuit has now been dropped by user DraftKings who alleges that the cheating scandals involving the Red Sox, Astros and Yankees have negatively affected their fantasy daily outcomes. The fact that the unlucky people are degenerate, angered by KENO’s version of sports betting taking their money, is the catalyst for the Yankees Letter being my favorite part about this story. (My favorite part is the name. We can do better than the Yankees Letter.)
The contents of the message are still unknown, but now the public will be able to see how MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred explains the findings of the investigation into the Bronx Bombers’ use of Apple Watches and video rooms to steal marks brand. Houston fans think Manfred “as a scapegoat” for their team as the most egregious violator of plagiarism, and probably fantasized about releasing the letter as much as any shrewd teen fantasized about sexual content.
Who knows how damning the correspondence will be. It could end up as inconsequential as the Mueller Report (not The Washington Post’s Yankees Letter-esque book titled “The Mueller Report” but the actual Mueller report), with the people getting mad but not getting the warranted punishment they desire. Brian Cashman is certainly hoping it’ll blow over after he blamed the team’s World Series drought on a year of Houston time cheat – and not his inferiority in all other seasons.
It’s really shocking that GM has been around for so long. He’s survived several post-season crashes and the Steinbrenners, and currently oversees the team’s third-longest streak without a title. He is inexplicable for some indirect inexplicable reason.
Maybe the letter was just an Excel print of Steinbrenner’s stress books, with a handwritten letter from Hal asking for clemency because he had to drain his coffers to pay his star players. (Money is running out Will definitely explain a lot.) I don’t know, but it’s fun to speculate.
However, the one who suffered the most was Manfred. If he shows a favor to the league’s most popular franchise and downplays the extent of its cheating scandal, it will have fans, teams, and most importantly, owners. smoky, smoky. While the screams of indignation from angry owners made me feel as comfortable as an Old Fashioned on a Friday night, with Manfred it was just the opposite.
After the MLB processes the key with Staring into space and waiting for the cave players, PR worse for ordinary people would be worrying. The caveat is that Manfred can be a nihilist who doesn’t care about anything leave baseball alone. Fire him. See if he bleeds – or blinks.
Also, ‘Stros fans, if you think this letter will somehow help your team pardon its transgressions, or silence Yankees fans, you’re being delusional. Unless New York is using the PA system to deliver pitches, nothing is going to hit the trash can. And even if the cheating is far more blatant than previously reported, have you met the Yankees fans? They don’t yield an inch, and if you’re right, they go straight to “27 rings, bitch.”
Anything in the letter was compelling enough for Yankee to co-use to request a rarely-licensed “vi banc” maneuver, which the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals denied, according to Evan Drellich’s Athletic.
I’m not going to pretend I know what a ban drill is (ok, all the umpires weigh in instead of three), or what’s in the Yankees Letter, I just know that my interest is ignited regardless. whenever Big Baseball tries to keep a secret anything related to a cheating scandal, especially one involving the oldest team in the MLB.
The truth will set you free – or at least strengthen your baseball argument.
