Sports Illustrated operator The Maven ran background checks on publishers in July, months after an e-mail on Patrick Starr

Awful Announcing obtained an April 29 e-mail from The Maven SVP Glenn Nelson linking Texans' writer Patrick Starr to Patrick Colon, a former high school coach and teacher who pled guilty to two counts of improper relations between an educator and a student in 2008. Starr continued to write for SI/The Maven through at least June.


Long-time SI writer and “Astroball” author Ben Reiter is doing a podcast on the Astros’ scandal, with a TV series based on it...

"The Astros of the 2010s were the most innovative organization in the history of sports. As it turned out, the ‘new way to win it all’ involved factors that no one could have imagined - myself included. Cadence13, Prologue Projects, and Left/Right are the ideal partners with whom to reveal the full story of the Astros’ exhilarating rise and shocking fall."
