Rob Manfred says MLB is finished investigating Red Sox for alleged sign-stealing in 2018

Major League Baseball was supposed to kick off the 2020 season on Thursday, March 26. Unfortunately, the spread of the novel coronavirus has delayed Opening Day until later in the year, depending on the effectiveness of various containment measures imposed across the country. It is unknown at this point if there will be a season or what it will entail.

Given how much uncertainty commissioner Rob Manfred is dealing with, it’s understandable that he hasn’t found time to address some lingering business from the time before COVID-19, such as authoring the league’s report on the Boston Red Sox’s alleged technological misconduct during their championship 2018 season. Basically, the Red Sox are accused of stealing signs by using their replay room in a violation of the league rules.

Manfred addressed that topic (among others) with Scott Van Pelt on “SportsCenter.” “We are done with the investigation,” he said. “There’s been a delay in terms of producing a written report, just because I, frankly, have not had time to turn to it with the other issues. But we will get a Boston report out before we resume play.”

What do we make of this explanation?

Take away all their picks from rounds 11 on this year... hmm.. I know! Don't let them play home games until summer. Hm.... Going to be tough to punish when reality is hitting every team hard this year.

Make the Astros and Red Sox play against each other every day until the season starts.
