Mike Clevinger under investigation for domestic violence

The accuser has been in contact with MLB since last summer. I hate Mike Clevinger. I hate Rick Hahn.

 

Why do I not rule out the possibility the White Sox knew all along, and knew he would eventually be suspended, and they wouldn't be liable for the the contract. All so they can say they tried, but s%*# happens?

If Sox release him before his suspension is handed down, do they still owe him the $?  

What are you asking here? It’s a guaranteed contract and to my knowledge the only thing that is relevant is the CBA agreed upon suspension rules. Getting rid of him today costs $12 million.

I wouldn't think so.

Yah, that's what I was thinking.  Therefore Sox almost certainly will wait until he's placed on un-paid administrative leave while MLB goes through their process.

Not if he violated some clause in his contract.  Also, it’s real shitty teams weren’t told about the investigation.

Ok then I guess they have to wait until he gets suspended. Hopefully he goes on Administrative Leave and is not allowed at ST.

I wouldn't put DA's cynical hypothesis beyond the Sox.

I am asking what I asked.  Not that complicated. 

If they release him today for example, and he gets put on an un-paid administrative leave before the season and then a suspended without pay much like Bauer did, if the Sox released him before that actually occurs, does it change the un-paid nature of the suspension.

I'm truly not sure how much longer I can follow this team. Absolute losers all around.

I basically hate every possible aspect of this organization. I will still root for guys like Eloy and Schultz, but holy s%*# is it a joke.

I'm feeling the same way. 

Do the Sox realize they've already alienated the majority of their fanbase to a certain degree? 

Are they trying to piss off the fans so nobody cares when they move the team? 

That has always been my tin foil hat hypothesis.

The White Sox said they were not aware of these allegations when they signed Clevinger. “Major League Baseball and the Chicago White Sox take any and all allegations very seriously. If this was true, then how do you explain the Sox hiring TLR knowing that he was arrested for his second DUI?
