We complain about Big Brother and movie rating system and things you used-to-not-be-able-to-say on TV, and the sports world continues to move toward wadding up much of the first amendment.
The First Amendment does not protect you from censorship from your employer.
It's not going to be a shock to anyone to see that it was his girlfriend. I don't think that this rates an 'investigation'.
No, but sometimes it's a nice ideal to live up to, right?

We took out Marge Schott an dfew people blinked since everyone hated her anyway. But the ball began rolling downhill, and I don't see any big movement to stop it. I guess no one chants "sticks and stones..." anymore.
I think it's a good policy, but the "investigation" part makes the whole thing seem like a farce. The tweet is down now, just fine Holland and be done with it. If he wants to find the real Tweeter, than he can investigate that on his own.
I don't have a big problem with it either, but this isn't an official MLB account or anything, nor is it a part of his job in any way. It's just a player acting in public while off the job. So I can see the argument either way.
Being in the public eye is part of his job.

An investigation without a warrant is a fourth amendment issue. And they're using his own tweet! That's fifth amendment. Anyone know if the Marines are sleeping in his house?
Anybody who says this is a First Amendment issue should be sent to jail.
Of course, why would anyone Tweet sober?

I can't imagine why someone might think that a guy with such a classy Twitter name might use a slur of some sort...
Maybe I'm mis-reading the situation, but if Holland believes that someone hacked into his account and tweeted a comment that wasn't his, that seems worthy of an investigation. That would be fraudulent, right?
A. Chapman is "fatigued" after throwing 67.2 innings. I am hiring a Rubenesque Italian lass to sing a dirge, as manliness has died this day.
Batsmen grow quite reluctant to hit a hurler with a batted ball if you preventatively beat one of their mothers to death with a shovel.
all I ever do write Chuck Norris facts or random facts, `a pig or a duck, you can’t hear its echo.’
Maybe he's a connoisseur of fine Scandinavian cooking.
There was once a restaurant in town called the Dutch Oven and it was used completely unironically.
I want him to be investigated for this.
