After learning that media company Uninterrupted is producing a documentary about the Houston Astros' sign-stealing scandal, Astros third baseman Alex Bregman is reportedly leaving his agency Klutch Sports and looking for new representation.
The film from Uninterrupted does not yet have a release date, but it will air on Quibi and will be an inside look at the high profile scandal, according to those familiar with the documentary.
Sports Illustrated's Robin Lundberg and Emma Baccellieri discuss Bregman's dramatic move to leave Klutch Sports.
Read the full video transcript:
Robin Lundberg: Alex Bregman has left Klutch Sports agency, reportedly in part because Uninterrupted is producing a documentary on the Astros sign stealing scandal. For more, I'm joined by our MLB writer Emma Baccellieri. Emma, what's your instant reaction? You think you'd have to have tougher skin given how many people are gonna be pointing to what the Astros did?
Emma Baccellieri: Yeah, I mean, I think obviously this was a very, very much discussed topic over the winter and, you know, still is now and probably will only continue to be as baseball comes back and as we see, you know, only more content produced like this documentary with Uninterrupted. So, you know, you might think that that might be something that players would maybe have already accounted for, but I guess to each his own. There's obviously a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes. And clearly, you know, there are a lot of emotions all around on this one.
Robin Lundberg: Yeah, and there could be various reasons why this happened. But it would seem a little extra if the reason he threw that relationship in one of those trash cans the Astros were banging on was simply because that documentary was coming. Emma, appreciate your time, as always.
