"Dr. Martin alleged racist and sexist comments from Jerry Dipoto (GM), Scott Servais (Manager), and Andy McKay (Director of Player Development)."

Basically, nothing good is coming from this for Seattle. The GM and the manager were both named in examples of racist behavior toward players. Scott Servais told her Dominicans weren't smart enough to be baseball managers or catchers. McKay said they were too lazy to buy into her plans. Martin also said she reported these comments to HR and was fired as a result. Unless she's completely lying (which would be unbelievable), Seattle is going to have to make some serious changes. MLB is investigating.

I'm going to wait and see on this story, but I don't think it's "unbelievable" that a terminated employee would level false accusations.

I think it's possible she exaggerated some things but there's no way she made this stuff up.

Everything is possible... There is precedent and last time I checked nobody was proven guilty.  

 

I'd let the MLB investigation reach its conclusions before I reach mine.

Moderator note: This needs to stay civil, on topic and refrain from blatant accusations against the parties involved AND other posters.

I don't know, I won't call her a liar or believable.I've just heard a lot of people say crazy stuff after a job situation goes south.

 

So, there's nothing I wouldn't put past a disgruntled former employee
