The CFL has it right. When Jerome Messam was charged with voyeurism the Riders and the league ended their relationship with the running back and he won’t be able to sign a contract until his legal matter is resolved.
Meanwhile, in Major League Baseball, Roberto Osuna was traded from Toronto to Houston with a pending domestic violence charge hanging over him.
Good on the Blue Jays for jettisoning him out of town before having him stepping back on the mound representing your team, city and country.
But if I’m a fan of the Houston Astros I wouldn’t be able to accept this decision from a general manager, putting wins ahead of morals.
Innocent until proven guilty, but I still argue Osuna can collect his pay cheques while not standing on the mound and forcing fans to check their morals at the door to cheer a save from an alleged domestic abuser.
Houston and MLB should be ashamed every time Osuna throws a pitch this year.
