LISTEN: Rob Manfred Duels With Dan LeBatard Show

MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred it seems got caught in a lie on Wednesday about whether they knew of plans by new Marlins ownership to drastically slash payroll before the new ownership was approved by the league.

The unraveling of Manfred’s attempt at deniability began Wednesday morning in an interview with ESPN’s Dan Le Batard Show.

In the interview, Manfred discussed his office’s alleged knowledge (or lack of knowledge, as it were) of the plans by the new Marlins ownership group to drastically slash their salary commitments moving forward. 

That assertion was denied hours later by a report in The Miami Heraldand now it seems that Manfred has some ‘splainin to do when it comes to what he actually knew and why he publicly denied it
