In March, MLB filed a civil lawsuit that wasn't intended to right a wrong, but, instead, to dredge up evidence to punish players that otherwise wouldn't be obtainable and, in the process, tidy up the game that isn't as clean as Bud Selig believed.
"A very well-funded plaintiff is going after these small fries not to go after them, but to go after bigger fish [players]," Johnson said. "They're trying to circumvent their own collective bargaining agreement."
"This is so unusual in terms of the posture of the parties and the illicit purpose of which this lawsuit is being used," Johnson said. "This is a very rare misuse of the court system."
