MLB analyst Ryan Spaeder took to Twitter earlier this week to share cheating scandals involving several teams. He provided absolutely no evidence while making his allegations and on Thursday he had changed his tune.
Spaeder apologized for reporting on "unfounded allegations" and vowed to stick to what he does best, stats.
From Larry Brown Sports:
Apparently frustrated over the cheating matters and what he deemed was MLB’s selective penalization, a baseball-focused stats guy named Ryan Spaeder attempted to address things. He tweeted numerous allegations regarding other teams and players whom he claimed have cheated the last few years. His allegations went back as far as 2015.
On Thursday, apparently feeling the heat from the rumors, Spaeder decided to apologize. He deleted the rumors he spread a day earlier. He said sharing the rumors had turned his life “upside down” and that he regretted everything.
I deeply regret everything that I said — it has turned my life upside down. It was a mistake, and I should not have reported on unfounded allegations. I sincerely apologize to all of those impacted — it should not have happened, and it will not happen again. Stick to stats.

This is hilarious. Naming names and pointing fingers at teams with zero evidence is a bold strategy, it takes some balls, but so is deleting the tweets and trying to pretend it never happened.
He would have been better off claiming he was hacked. The Big Js aren't going to like this at all.
