Bowden the tip of the iceberg?

I've felt from the first time this story surfaced, Major League Baseball had another serious scandal on its hands. The investigation into the skimming of signing bonus money paid to Latin American players claimed Nationals G.M. Jim Bowden yesterday. Bowden resigned while maintaining his innocence. But the FBI is sniffing around. And Bowden no longer has any professional capital to protect, so if Jim knows something, Jim might want to fess up now. Should the investigation find massive wrongdoing, it's stunning to me that something like this could be going on and baseball could be so clueless. That would be like a bunch of suddenly-pumped-up juiced players breaking all kinds of sacred records and baseball not knowing about that. Oh, wait. That happened.
