    1. If its true they could be compelled by the courts to tell it.

    2. Good people generally don't like to see someone get ****ed and are willing to assist.

    Bolsinger said the team had decided to convert him to a reliever and he was hoping to carve out a spot on the team over the remainder of the season.

    Now, we all understand that failed starters are frequently made relievers and that a good amount of the time a decent career as a reliever can be salvaged, correct?

    Because a quick check on baseball reference confirms he had in fact been a starter his entire major league career until his final 6 appearances with the Blue Jay's when he came out of the pen. And those 6 appearances came after an extended absence from the team which definitely makes it appear that the jays brought him back up to give him another shot as a reliever.

    One thing I haven't seen pointed out is that he got roughed up by the astros not just the once in the 6 relief appearances but twice! So is it crazy to think that his getting batted around the park in 2 of those 6 games by the Houston Assjoles might have played a big part in the Jays ending that audition?

    Because if I'm the GM I'm happy to state that in court if its true. Why wouldn't they?

    Edit: I should point out, the fact that the team designated him for assignment immediately following the game seems like a great point in his favor.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    I mean there are certainly arguments there that can be made, and as much as I'd like to see it, I just don't see someone taking the initiative and stepping in. It just seems like one of those things that the courts would throw out. Certainly would open a whole new can of worms though.

    Also, if you're Major League Baseball, you're going to do everything in your power for this thing not to go to court.

    Probably. Bolsinger will probably own an island in the South Pacific and never be heard or seen again.

    I have a hunch that the lawsuit will be tossed without going to trial. He won't get a huge payday.

    I'm not so sure. Stranger suits have gone to trial.

    Jays GM has already said on record that he was frustrated as everybody else over the scandal and would have made some decisions differently.

    The Astros have already admitted guilt. This unfairly affected Bolsinger's livelihood and career. I think he has a case

    Do you know the story about the hot coffee from McDonald’s? It literally almost killed that lady.
