FanRagSports- Baseball agent Jason Wood is being investigated by the player’s union for allegedly filming numerous clients while they were using his shower, seven sources tell FanRag Sports.
Three sources say that Wood has been fired by CSE, where he was the President of Baseball. A search to replace him is underway, with the agency hoping to find someone to fill that role soon. Some players have already fired CSE and have hired new representation or are looking to do so in the near future.
Recently, a player who chose not be identified, was using a shower at Wood’s home and found a camera, sources say. The player confronted Wood, then followed by firing him immediately, sources say.
Multiple sources suggest that there were other players being filmed, with their identities being unknown.
Wood represented many players around MLB, including the Boston Red Sox’s Andrew Benintendi, Colorado Rockies’ Riley Pint and Atlanta Braves’ Joey Wentz.
Obviously the "why?" is more important than the "how?" considering this was a situation in which the privacy of multiple people was breached by someone who was both trusted and financially incentivized to keep a close eye on the type of sizable endowment that doesn't reside between his clients' legs.
Still, I can't help but wonder how Jason Wood convinced a handful of professional athletes that his residence was the right place to drop trou and give themselves a quick rinse. Like, what could the circumstances surrounding these meetings possibly have been that them in ending in an immediate, full-body lather was necessary?
Did the newly disgraced agent only talk business over 1-on-1 basketball games? Was his in-home office a sauna? Did he suggest they workout the details of the contract during an actual workout? Maybe Jason Wood veiled his predatory intentions with a cloak of genuine friendliness, but at how many homes - other than your own - have you worked yourself into a sweat that simply couldn't wait until you returned to the sanctity of the quarters where you shit, shave, and shower? Maybe I'm underselling the closeness of the agent-client relationship, but I don't seem to recall Vinny Chase making an impromptu stops at the Gold household for a self grooming.
I guess what I am trying to say is, with how well he apparently sold grown men on sprucing themselves up on the spot without it seeming odd, it's no wonder this creep was successful in the profession he'll forever be banished from. He's a sexual defiant of the highest order, but Jason Wood was (operative word) a goddamn perfectionist as a pitchman.
