John Henry revealed he was fined $500,000 by Major League Baseball for his comments last year about revenue sharing. Henry said the system was broken because it gave low-end clubs money with no guidelines on how it was to be spent. This was exacerbated when Deadspin leaked documents showing the solid profit the perennially awful Pittsburgh Pirates make at the expense of their fans. Said Henry: “I made statements which turned out to be true, or at least there were various documents that were leaked after that. But anyway, the large clubs are not allowed to talk about it.”
No word on if he will be further fined for talking about the fine.
