I don't know what stage this or these accusations are but have we come completely to a guilty verdict without any presumption of innocence?  If he did it fine he needs to be punished, but not much information for us to make up our minds on.

Again, this is the conclusion of an investigation.
Thanks for the update and thought they must have sufficient evidence of wrong doing, I just didn't see this in the initial report that I saw.  Sad to see he ruined his legacy this way.

The presumption of innocence is for a court room and is a legal principle. It would be ridiculous to ask that of individuals.

More to the point, for MLB to do this means they've looked into the matter and found sufficient cause to take the action they did.
I mean you'd think it being an old boys club to some extent it must've really been incriminating for this outcome.

Not only that but just for liability reasons you'd think they'd be pretty sure of themselves before announcing it loudly and publicly.

These rumours/allegations have plagued him for years.

This is from 2009: https://www.cp24.com/roberto-alomar-apparently-settles-sex-lawsuit-1.395677?cache=

Not sure if the current allegations are anything different but when you're hiring people...

Keptain Kirk launches two, count em, two home runs and bats in 4 RBI,  move over Vladdy, you have a competitor.

If this team can get Pearson and/or Manoah going they'll be real fun to watch.

Yah, for some reason I just have a gut feeling that Manoah will be better or at last more durable. Don't know why but I hope they are both Ace.  I am loving watching the Jays, they are a fun team to follow.

I’m watching the Jays play against Atlanta and I saw a sign scroll across one of those display things in the stadium that’s says ‘masks must be worn at all times’. They show a shot of the crowd and next the no one is wearing a mask.

4 runs in the ninth to sweep the Braves. This team is catching fire and without some of its star players.
