What's up with Rizzo?


His name kind of implies that he's a shady character. Like Rizzo in the movie Grease.

I thought Rizzo in Midnight Cowboy was the obvious way to go, but good enough for me!

Honest question: what is the investigation going to be? His wife clearly didn't want to make a public accusation that he hit her -- are they just going to DM the friend?

Yeah no clue what MLB's authority is here, can they just call up his wife. Would they even have that contact info, do they have the authority to ask for it and receive it?

I'm not sure how far MLB's investigating can go, especially if there is not police report or accusation from the victim herself. They might reach out to her or her attorney and see if she is willing to make a statement about the allegations, but otherwise I don't see what they can do.

The MLB has suspended players for DV without any formal police charges - Chapman's charges were dropped and he was still suspended - but I'm not sure an instagram comment from a friend of the alleged victim is enough to do anything.

This is the frustrating part to me, that there's basically nothing on that front from his wife or something like a police report. While I'm hoping that the truth is that friend misinterpreted some past conversation or something like that, I don't want to minimize a potentially very bad situation and one that is underreported and underpunished. At what point is an instagram comment from someone not in the relationship damning evidence, and at one point is saying it's not enabling the larger problem?

I would assume that's more about infidelity than DV, although I guess he could have threatened her via text.

Which could still be anything. Could just be something embarrassing, like texts with a girlfriend.

it's also within the context that she's already plainly accused him of hitting his wife, and still implying the texts were somehow even more damning and that he gets off light by omitting that, though i could be reading between the lines a bit too much here

I guess i will weigh in, but i think (hope?) it won't really move the needle much on the topic.

As a whole, I don't care if any athlete (or even anyone) cheats on their significant other. I have known/suspected friends of doing that before, but it's not my business. I don't like it, but I don't know what is going on with their relationship. Hell, I don't believe I've ever "cheated" on anyone I was with because it was always while we were "on a break" (i.e., not together - *insert Friends reference*) but there is some grey area there I'm sure. Anyway, I just kind of assume it's a pretty typical thing with athletes and famous people in general. Again, you can certainly judge and that is fine, but I try not to insert my feelings when I don't have any clue what is going on in his/her relationship.

The DV is, of course, a completely different story. I hope it's not true but I will be judging him on that in the interim and I doubt we will ever know the truth and so maybe I'll never look at him the same again. That sucks if it is all untrue, but it is what it is. But if it came out tomorrow that Zobrist cheated on his wife it wouldn't make me like him - as a baseball player - any less. For all I know their significant other could have been sleeping around during the whole time. In short, I just don't care about other people's love lives. Let them figure it out. If it's someone close to you and you know the situation and they are being hurt then that is one thing. But, if it's from a typical "outsider" point of view I just look the other way. I have too much horsefeathers going on in my own life to care about some random person's love life.

Is that recent on Rizzo or from a while ago? I think I remember reading he's only been dating this girl for a year.

i mean maybe he went totally straight and narrow and faithful after spending years living the single life the way he did, but i would doubt it. i think the percentage of these athletes that don't cheat is very small.

but what i spoke of is just his reputation among industry people and such.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.
