    You must recognise the difference, right?

    Of course there's a difference in size and strength (most of the time), and the ability to force your will on others. But that doesn't mean the players themselves aren't sexually assaulted either. It could also possibly suggest to a young player from a different culture that it's normal behavior when they're subjected to it, and they may not see it as being wrong. That does NOT excuse them doing it though.

    Thatís fair.

    Obviously itís much easier for an athlete to resist advances as they have the influence. Itís the abuse of influence thatís the underlying issue with the recent celebrity sexual harassment cases.

    Jays aren't giving up Bo. But I can see them trading Alford and Zeuch, and another piece while taking on some contracts that's Marlins want to move like Prado and Chen to facilitate that move.

    Yeah I don't think Shatkins trades Bo, and I don't expect the Marlins to be content with a package centered around Alford, though who the hell knows what the Marlins are doing. If the Jays agree to take Prado and/or Chen, then maybe they can get Yelich for less.

    I would include Bo in a trade that brought back Realmuto and Yelich + salary. Would add some solid long term pieces on the roster this year while keeping the prized jewel in the organization.

    I'd say Vlad is the only prospect who should be unavailable in a deal for a player of Yelich's value. I wouldn't want to see us move Bo for any sort of short term option but for Yelich it's a no brainer.

    I grew up loving hearing the stories of athletes and womanizing. I got to witness it as my friend was a ball boy who was instructed every game to give notes from Jesse Barfield to young girls in the crowd (with instructions of where to meet him). I loved that story...even laughed it off when one of the girls from my high school (16 at the time) said that he sent her a note. Now I just wonder how many others were underage.

    In the end what's the worst that happens about all this? Athletes, politicians and actors are forced to actually show some restraint.

    Geeze don't call on humanity, bro. Lets all gather a conscience. Women throwing themselves at them is enough, but they have to draw a line... Seriously, with some of these guys it's ridiculous, use your fucking brains boys, you have it all, regardless.
