I spent over six hours viewing, reviewing and re-reviewing Rob Manfred’s interview with ESPN’s Karl Ravech. He’s not just bad for baseball; he’s bad for business. Thoughts on Manfred, baseball and stewardship, all unrelated.
ESPN has long been the subject of scrutiny when it comes to the appearance of conflict of interest. The worldwide leader didn’t do much to help acquit themselves Sunday night. Neither did Major League Baseball.
