It’s kind of a quiet sports week. No NBA games till Thursday. The NHL trade deadline is upon us, but that never really gets a lot of attention. And there aren’t spring training games yet.
So every time Rob Manfred says anything about the sign stealing scandal, it’s going to be big news, news that echoes through the February doldrums. And even though of us who aren’t feeling outrage towards the Astros, and who understand that the CBA between MLB and the players limits what kind of punishment can be doled out, have to admit one thing: Manfred has no idea what he’s doing.
It’s going to be a long spring training.
As ever, all sports subjects welcome.
