Scandal

Major League Baseball Agent Fired For Filming Players While They Showered

A scandal is breaking out in the Major League Baseball world because of an agent.

Jason Wood, the president of baseball for the agency CSE, was just suspended by the player’s union. Why? FanRag reports that it’s because Wood allegedly filmed many baseball players. In one circumstance, he specifically did it while the player showered in his St. Louis home.

In addition, Jason Wood has also been fired from his agency because of these stories.

“For over 32 years, CSE Talent has prided itself on our moral and ethical standards and have built a solid reputation within the industry,” said CSE president Danny Martoe in a statement. “It’s unfortunate that CSE Talent aligned itself with someone who didn’t uphold these same standards and therefore we chose to terminate with cause Wood’s employment.”

Despite all this, Woods is adamant in saying that he hasn’t done anything and that these allegations are false.

While we don’t know why the baseball players were showering in Woods’s home to begin with, we know that there are several, unshared, names attached to these allegations.

One player, who remained anonymous, said that he found the camera while he was showering. He says that he then confronted Wood, and immediately fired him as his agent.

Before all this, Jason Wood was the agent of some notable players like the Boston Red Sox’s Andrew Benintendi, the Seattle Mariners’ David Phelps and the Atlanta Braves’ Joey Wentz.

Now, he is unable to represent any players and, depending of the results of the investigation, he could lose his accreditation as an agent.

Romanian Orthodox Bishop Forced To Leave After A Gay Sex Video With A Student Leaked

Another one bites the dust.

Yet another bishop has been wrought by sex scandal, but this time the situation has been resolved quickly and quietly.

What happened was the last month a video leaked of Biship Corneliu Barladeanu having sex with a male seminary student of 17-years-old. The video is apparently old enough that the student is now a full fledged priest, but it still incriminates the bishop.

Barladeanu denied that the man in the video was him, but he was still asked by the Metropolitan Church of Moldavia and Bukovina to no longer to serve the Holy Mass and other church services, "until the proximate meeting of the Holy Synod when it will be approached."

Then, this past Thursday and Friday, Barladeanu went to have a “discussion” with the Holy Synod, the group that governs the Romanian Orthodox Church. The results of that two day discussion was that Barladeanu decided to leave his position, despite still claiming his innocence, “for the peace and good of the Church.”

That said, the Holy Synod and the Romanian Orthodox Church did not punish Barladeanu in anyway with the reasoning that it would prolong “for a long time the uncertainty of the bishopry of Husi (the location in which Barladeanu was in charge).”

So, it seems like Corneliu Barladeanu got off easy as he still gets to practice and preach as a monk, but without an office to his name.
