This week, we begin by discussing the punishment handed down by Rob Manfred to the Boston Red Sox for their role in the sign-stealing scandal, which included the loss of a second-round pick, and the suspension of their video replay operator. From there, we discuss the incoming return of baseball in Korea, the potential furloughs of employees across the MLB, the closing of Louisville Slugger, and Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez emerging as potential buyers of the New York Mets. To wrap up, we continue our Baseball Rewatchables by discussing the 1993 classic, The Sandlot.
