Haha.  Thatís ridiculous.   Baseball is cheating.  Itís part of the fabric of the game and what makes it mildly entertaining.

Stealing signs at second base and flashing signs to the batter is one thing.  Using technology is an entirely different level.

Zero hour, Michael. It's the end of the line. I'm the firstborn. I'm sick of playing second fiddle. I'm always third in line for everything. I'm tired of finishing fourth. Being the fifth wheel. There are six things I'm mad about, and I'm taking over.

farg off, Junior. 

Thereís been cheating in baseball since the 1800s.  Itís still going on, it always will go on, and as someone once said, if you ainít cheatiní you ainít tryiní.

Boston has shtein canned Alex Cora

As for the sign stealing...Iím fine with guys trying to pick the catchers signs off while on base and relaying them. Thatís harmless.

But to have an elaborate scheme like this is out of bounds. It created a distinct advantage. What batter wouldnít want to know when an off speed pitch was coming? Hear that bang and you know youíre not getting a fastball. Huge advantage. Iím glad the Astros got walloped.

Their organization has been arrogant as shtein. farg em

Word coming out now that some Astros were wearing buzzers on their bodies to help on pitch notification.

My astros season ticket rep groveling today for business with apologies was interesting.

not sure how that can be proven but if it can altuve and bregman and all the rest gotta go for a year at least. not sure what the union will allow, regardless it would go to court or an arbiter bla bla bla legal shtein

interesting but not surprising is internally the astros people are all going full blame the victim on fiers. i get it snitches get stitches, im from the street i live round the way i aint say shtein about shtein to nobody. but either something is or it isnt. and why are you even playing this silly little game if you can keep it straight.
