While the baseball world continues to respond to the recent impact of the MLB electronic sign theft scandal, the NFL Hall of Famer O.J. Simpson is now thinking about team misconduct.
Simpson, who loves grappling with his opinions on the latest news, went on Twitter to defend the Boston Red Sox and the Houston Astros for fraud. As Simpson found, teams and players have been looking for competitive advantages for decades and have done nothing to prevail against their opponents.
Simpson even shared stories he heard from baseball legends Hank Greenberg and Mickey Mantle about how players would look to pitcher benefits. While stealing characters from baseball is nothing new, the methods used differ.
Fortunately, Simpson sees the importance of punishing those involved for their actions for doing things that were wrong. In this case, both Astros and Red Sox fired their managers for their role in fraud tactics.
It is good to see that Simpson is for those who have committed unlawful acts that will have consequences from their actions.
