"Yet he's still in the game making half a million. No one's gonna go after that."

He was recently hired by the Angels as a senior adviser.

"This stuff's getting old, where they target certain guys and let other people off the hook," McDowell said. " ... Everybody who's been around the game knows all this stuff."
