Manfred ALWAYS was going to protect the Dodgers and Yankees. The REAL story has always been that the Astros got too fucking good and the larger market teams couldn’t handle that they kept getting beat. So, they weaponized Manfred against us with their bitching. That’s a FACT.
And they wonder how he dealt with stress so well. Wild guess. You can say he stayed sedated. Some say booted, some say faded. Someday pray he grow a farm barnful. Recent research shows it’s not so darn harmful.
