Chris Rose on Sign Stealing in the MLB [Podcast]


By Adam Turteltaub

Breaking the rules is breaking the rules no matter where it occurs. And for those of us in compliance there is much to learn from scandals of all sorts.

Chris Rose, the co-host of Intentional Talk on the MLB Network and in-studio host for the NFL Network, was good enough to illuminate what happened in baseball’s sign stealing-scandal and what it all means.

In this podcast we begin by discussing the significance of the penalties imposed by baseball’s Commissioner and why they likely did not go farther. From there we explore the response of the teams and the reputational calculus, as well as the unique relationship of players to the press.

Finally we discuss what likely comes next. Listen in to learn more and get a better understanding of baseball, compliance and ethics.
