community news, Astros cheating scandal: MLB Network airs Bull Durham over Rob Manfred

1. Many people have come out of this Astros cheating scandal looking terrible. 

The list is long — Alex Cora, Carlos Beltran, A.J. Hinch, Jim Crane, Rob Manfred, all Astros players, etc. — and it keeps growing.

The latest addition is the MLB Network. Terrible might be a little strong, but the league’s network certainly had a rough day yesterday. Commissioner Rob Manfred held his first press conference regarding Houston’s sign-stealing chicanery Sunday afternoon, just a few days after the Astros held a disastrous press conference in which they shrugged off the entire affair.

However, the MLB Network passed on airing Manfred’s meeting with the media and stuck to its original programming at the time — Bull Durham.

Yes, baseball’s own network decided not to air an important and newsworthy press conference held by its own commissioner so instead they could air a movie that has been shown on their network a million times.

MLB Network aired the Astros’ controversial press conference on Thursday featuring Crane, Jose Altuve and Bregman, so it’s hard to understand why it would ignore Manfred’s presser on Sunday.
