    and suddenly "grew a conscience" now that he isn't (and went to a rival AL West team) and 3 "anonymous sources" are meaningless to me.

    There aren't any whistleblower protections in MLB so put your name on it if you accuse someone of something.
    If they are players and/or managers, they are afraid (and rightfully so) that this could ruin their careers.

    I think they'd come up with a better way to relay to the batter, like use the 1st or 3rd base coaches to signal, or have someone in the outfield stands hold up a big sign or something. Banging on a trash can or whatever is just dumb and obvious.

    I'm feeling petty and I'm trying not to openly hope he's going to tank but he IS a Yankees player now.

    Gerrit Cole signs with Yankees for record nine-year, $324 million deal.

    Maybe I can have a good laugh when they end up eating the last 4-5 years of that contract.
