So yeah, criticize abusers, be outraged when Delmon Young accosts innocent people in Manhattan in a clear act of hatred, criticize Sano for harassing female ushers in Chattanooga. But don't talk about Kirilloff being home schooled like you know that's going to be a performance problem, or say that Gordon's rap music hobby is a sure sign of his lack of dedication, or conclude something from one fairly innocuous comment from a player or a GM or an owner or a manager. Cut people slack.
Was there any evidence of this which was not anecdotal? I know there was a report from Jeff Passan which said Sano chased women "like it was sport". The specific item you cited, however, was testimony of Sano harassing someone - brought forward by someone on Twitter, correct? Is there any way to verify this person's claim? Is it accurate? Is the person credible? Is there any evidence they were actually there? I understand you wish to cut people slack, so I thought I'd ask.
Regarding the fall of Sano... the guy had a titanium rod surgically implanted in his leg during the off-season, hindering his preparation considerably, then went on to have a terrible year. It was pitiful to watch. I remember watching last Opening Day with excitement and he went like 0-5 and sucked all year. That being said, he has been an All-Star, has 84 MLB HR, and is still only 25. Hoping to see a rebound year.
