The stuff yesterday with David Price and Tom Hallion was pretty messed up. Someone there is lying, yes? Either Tom Hallion told Price to “throw the ball over the f-in plate” or he didn’t. If he did, he’s now lying about it and taking a step further by calling Price a liar. If he didn’t, Price is lying about an ump. Either way, the liar here has get in some trouble. MLB can’t just do that thing where they say they’ve investigated and then do nothing, can they?
At the moment they are at least investigating, Marc Topkin reports. And it’s not just Price and Hallion. Topkin says that MLB is looking at the post-game tweets of Rays player Jeremy Hellickson and Matt Moore, each of whom, arguably, criticized an ump on Twitter, which is a violation of MLB’s social media policy.
That would be something if they do anything to those guys but not Price or Hallion.
