    Yup, sounds like MLB. Actively working to destroy any sense of progress and growth

    Where does he live, also, he's still with the Athletic. I'd love having him on a morning show, oops We have none.

    Meh, his contract was up, he was not offered to be re-signed. So what? They have no responsibility to keep him employed.

    The reason is pretty shitty, but still

    He's still a main product of the Athletic and Fox, he'll find another gig soon.

    That was my first thought. Jomboy Media got Chris Rose after he was gone from MLB Network. Not sure if Rosenthal is within their budget but the company appears to be growing and Ken is still getting FOX money either way.

    MLB Network is owned by MLB Advanced Media, a limited partnership of the MLB club owners. It shouldn't surprise anyone that his contract is not renewed. I'd rather Rosenthal be free to speak his mind, rather than be constrained by his employer.

    He wasn't constrained to MLB Network one bit. He still was free of his point of view, etc via twitter as per usual, his main grounds of employment remain at the Athletic. Fox, MLBN and ESPN use him as a sub worker for those pieces of work, period.
