Royals just tied it up. You always hope the benching team takes the W to save any awkwardness. Let’s go Rays <3

Obviously, the public gets just a bit of the story. One thing a guy said on Sportsnet up here tonight--an ex-player I don't remember at all--is that to get this far, the players themselves would have asked for something to be done. I hope it's all forgotten quickly; Franco seems like a very affable Lindor kind of player from the little I've seen of him.

one month passes...

from clemenza's post on the rolling mlb thread:

A person very close to the investigations into the case of Wander Franco: "It will be very unlikely that Wander Franco will play in MLB again, judging by the results of the investigations that are currently being carried out, which directly commit him to the accusations against… https://t.co/Yn5CGckJgE

just thought i'd put it here, too. god, fucking horrible. i don't think i ever saw franco play a game (i only knew him from stats, prospect hype and highlight reels), don't think i ever will and that's a good thing.

I'd bet a large sum of money at this point that everything's true. These things never end with "Never mind, everyone, false alarm."

clemenza, Thursday, 17 August 2023 15:12 (eleven months ago) link

i very much believe it's true. franco, the team, and mlb's relative silence on the issue speaks volumes. the social media photos i saw, alone, tell the story, and the one thing that throws that into doubt (photoshops, ai, deepfakes, etc) doesn't apply when there are real investigations, complaints, lawsuits being filed.

good riddance, franco. you missed you stupid fucker

Jesus Christ.

Enrique and @JuanRecioM with the facts: Tampa Bay Rays shortstop Wander Franco has been officially summoned by police to appear for questioning at 11 a.m. Thursday, per sources. Franco is under investigation by police and MLB for alleged inappropriate relationships with minors. https://t.co/6g4w5ScTkv

plural is it

He no-showed his summons, his lawyers claim to have been dismissed and he is apparently on the run?

Fucking hell

Back when his biggest problem was getting benched for "not being a good teammate."

Something tells me this is not Josh Giddey bad but far far worse - with enough incidents and concerns to warrant this type of action in the DR

Cursed thread title

With that said…the Yankees, dodgers, Red Sox, giants, cubs, astros, Mets: all of them can’t miss , will win WS by 2036 easy

z_tbd, Monday, 1 January 2024 23:28 (six months ago) link

What’d the Mets ever do to you?

H.P, Tuesday, 2 January 2024 00:26 (six months ago) link

i felt guilty about including that as soon as i submitted lol

basically i'm just including teams that occasionally get to spend as much as they want on players. but dang the mets have had some real heartbreakers over the years. so to reverse curse fix this i'm gonna also say the mets will surely miss, will definitely break some hearts in 2024

z_tbd, Tuesday, 2 January 2024 00:31 (six months ago) link

Still flabbergasted the 2023 Mets team ended up having a losing season. That plus the Orioles taking the highest wins in mlb have to be the two strangest win-loss balances of the season

H.P, Tuesday, 2 January 2024 00:39 (six months ago) link

Sorry, in the AL, forgot about those pesky Braves (selective memory)

H.P, Tuesday, 2 January 2024 00:40 (six months ago) link

What is there to say? Unbelievably bleak

In this story are allegations that Tampa Bay shortstop Wander Franco paid off the mother of an underaged girl with whom Franco had a relationship. Additionally, @Martinrodriv reported, citing law enforcement documents, that the girl was 14 at the time. https://t.co/5yU8zywHDZ

Big news out of the Dominican Republic from ESPN's @JuanRecioM: Tampa Bay Rays shortstop Wander Franco has been formally charged with sexual abuse and sexual exploitation against a minor. https://t.co/GCDsSqrnsG

I don't know what the rays have been waiting for, the dodgers cut Bauer so fast while they've been sitting with this story for a year.

omar little, Wednesday, 10 July 2024 15:14 (one week ago) link

I understand he's on administrative leave and not on the roster or anything but you'd think they'd want to cut that cord a lot more quickly

omar little, Wednesday, 10 July 2024 15:15 (one week ago) link

I think the Rays want to get out of paying him.

Roman Anthony gets on his horse (gyac), Wednesday, 10 July 2024 15:20 (one week ago) link


this does get into the details a bit more, there was an agreement in place that he would be on administrative leave but now he's on the restricted list and they won't pay him. What a piece of shit, what a stupid, vile guy.
