In news that should come with little surprise, Major League Baseball is quite upset about Monday’s leaking of the financial documents of various teams and is looking for the source that gave up the information.
As noted by Richard Sandomir of the New York Times, access to teams’ financial records is usually limited to the MLB commissioner’s office, Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, and accounting firms Ernst & Young and PricewaterhouseCoopers. All five of those outlets will be investigated thoroughly.
Pirates principal owner Bob Nutting, who was found to have scored major profits in the midst of losing seasons, has not spoken up about the matter. But Marlins president David Samson has, calling the leak a “a breach of fiduciary obligation and duty by the leaking party” on ESPN.com.
Even if Pirates fans are treating the whole mess with apathy, this isn’t over.
