Not Jumping To Conclusions, But… Were The Yankees Stealing Sings?

Judge orders 2017 MLB letter to Yankees unsealed; plaintiffs say it details sign stealing — Evan Drellich (@EvanDrellich) June 13, 2020

“There is no justification for public disclosure of the letter. The plaintiff has no case anymore …” – Jonathan Schiller, a lawyer representing the Yankees — The Athletic MLB (@TheAthleticMLB) June 13, 2020

Don’t expect big revelations about the Yankees and sign stealing in letter @EvanDrellich reported on. MLB thoroughly investigated complaint against NYY at the time, issued the fine we know about. The league has long been convinced there isn’t much there with Yanks on this issue. — Andy Martino (@martinonyc) June 13, 2020

Genuinely curious to see what the letter from Rob Manfred to the Yankees about alleged sign-stealing from 2015-17 says. It will, as @EvanDrellich reported, be redacted, but the Yankees acknowledging its unsealing would cause “significant reputational injury” is quite interesting. — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) June 13, 2020
