I may have written about David Pinto’s story earlier, but I know that spent much of tonight arguing the same thing. Discipline in this case is futile, for the most part, and counterproductive. The right thing would have been to embrace the information anyone would have given without threat of punishment, the better to judge what happened.
We still want to know what happened, because so many players who feared punishment didn’t talk to Mitchell.
That was a mistake.
