I don't remember reading that, the grand jury didn't meet until the beginning of the 1920 season. There were plenty of other teams that were rumored to be on the take back then.
Judge Mountain Landis was an A-hole but baseball needed a commissioner who was not influenced by the owners.
Joe Jackson was one of the best loved players of his time. Sure there were d-bags on the team but that can be said of every team.
Ty Cobb and his Tigers were dirty, I think Cobb sharpened his spikes with intent to injure.
