Just when we thought it couldn’t get worse for Major League Baseball with players like Trevor Bauer, Carlos Rodon, Tyler Glasnow, and Jack Flaherty ripping the league over its sticky substance crackdown, along comes MLB analyst Ryan Spaeder with very specific allegations of more widespread cheating.

On Wednesday, Spaeder posted a series of tweets where he claims there has been rampant sign stealing has been in Major League Baseball for over five years, and it wasn’t just the Houston Astros that were doing it.

“I’ve had enough, I think I am coming out with everything tomorrow… going to sleep on it,” Spaeder tweeted Tuesday night.

Wednesday morning, Ryan Spaeder began his Twitter thread of allegations by saying, “Everything that I am about to say was verified by more than one player. I do not mean to burn anyone, and I love baseball… I’ve just had enough of this bullsh-t.”

Spaeder then went on to name names and teams he says were cheating over the past few years including the Royals, Yankees, Dodgers, Rockies, Aaron Judge, Chase Utley, Adrian Beltre, and Carlos Beltran.

We already pretty much knew that one.

Spaeder had already hinted at what he tweeted on Wednesday in a series of tweets posted last week.

Those tweets basically explained, according to him, why it is that Rob Manfred and Major League Baseball scapegoats certain teams and players to help themselves when it comes to time renegotiate the collective bargaining agreement and absolve themselves of any responsibility for scandal.

Man, I don’t know about you, but I canNOT wait to hear what Trevor Bauer has to say about all of this.
