Telling Letter About Yankees’ Sign-Stealing Set To Be Revealed

New York Yankees fans are already reeling from an uncharacteristically-mild free agency this offseason. And now, the team appears to be facing bigger problems.

On Monday, a court ruled that a letter sent to the commissioner’s office about their alleged sign-stealing scandal was set to be released.

The yankees appealed the decision to make their damning letter public. But a court ruled that their request lacked real merit.

“The Yankees argue that the harm from the unsealing of the Yankees Letter will rise because its content ‘would be distorted to falsely and unfairly generate the confusing scenario that the Yankees had somehow violated MLB’s sign stealing rules, when in fact the Yankees did not,'” the court wrote. “That argument, however, carries little weight. Disclosure of the document will allow the public to independently assess MLB’s conclusion regarding the internal investigation (as articulated to the Yankees) and the Yankees are fully capable of disseminating their own views regarding the actual content of the Yankees letter.”

According to ESPN, the MLB still has not responded to a comment request. But when this letter becomes public, it will likely send shockwaves through the league similar to the Astros sign-stealing scandal.

It’s believed to take about two weeks before the documents are revealed.
