39 - Does Mike Bolsinger's Lawsuit Against the Astros Have a Chance?

Play
Read more

Mike discusses former Blue Jays pitcher Mike Bolsinger's lawsuit against the Astros that was filed in Los Angeles. Bolsinger was a victim of the sign-stealing scandal, and allowed 4 earned runs in 1/3 of an inning on August 4, 2017. That day was Bolsinger's last game in Major League Baseball.

The goal of this podcast is to answer a lot of your questions about the lawsuit: how can Bolsinger claim the Astros ruined his career, when he had a flimsy professional career and poor ERA in 2017? Why was the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles? How worried should the Astros be about this lawsuit? What will their defenses be?

Personal injury attorney Noah Goodman joins me (5:10) to answer those questions, and plenty more. Noah has researched the evolution and decline of free agency in MLB, and he also writes about collective bargaining issues in professional sports. 

(26:15) Mike gives his biggest takeaways from Noah's interview, including the way the Astros will try to get rid of this lawsuit.
