10. He Knew
One of the worst things about the recent Astros sign-stealing scandal was the fact that Manfred definitely knew something was up. The Astros used nefarious methods for three or four years in what was, according to the Washington Post, an open secret.
In sum, Manfred must have known. But he didn’t want to open up a can of worms so his office didn’t investigate. However, that’s like ignoring a hole in your crotch and hoping it will disappear. It won’t and suddenly you’ll be showing a lot more than you wanted to.
