    What if a reporter gets caught in someone's locker?

    Seems like there's been some turnover among sports editors at the Free Press in recent years. That could be a factor.

    True. It's difficult for me to reconcile the disconnect between what I remember about the industry and what it's like now for all of you, sorry. The tumbleweeds rolling through most newsrooms should have been my first clue.

    Visitors in the clubhouse, including accredited media members, should conduct themselves in a professional manner. There shall be no seeking of autographs, no touching or removing of equipment or personal items from lockers, and no sampling of players’ food spreads. Clubhouses are work places. Clubhouse business should be conducted as expeditiously as possible with a minimum of disruption of regular game routines. Members of the media should not excessively linger in the clubhouse when not interviewing players. Members of the media who violate the code of conduct set forth in this paragraph shall be subject to sanctions, including the loss of their accreditation as provided for in paragraph 17 below.

    Right. So that puts to the lie the idea that "it's never okay" to ban someone from a clubhouse. My question is, where does eavesdropping and tweeting a private conversation fall? (If that's what in fact happened. I have no idea.) You could argue that a player should know better than to have such a conversation with reporters within earshot. You could also argue that a reporter should respect that not everything that's spoken in the clubhouse is fair game. I don't know where I land on it.

    I think that if it was eavesdropping it was about something relatively innocuous. If the reporter had quoted Verlander on something controversial I think the quote would have surfaced by now.
