OT: MLB Cheating Scandal

Recommended Posts

I bet most if not all teams do this. Too much $$$ involved to not do everything you can to give your hitters a better chance.

Maybe from a baserunner at second base,  but not on the scale the Astros did it. It’s a huge advantage to know what pitch is coming. It would be like the defense knowing what play the offense was going to run before the ball is hiked. the  IMO their manager should be banned from baseball. I think the team should receive a minimum three year ban from the playoffs.

No, it was via cameras and then signals relayed to batters. Low tech stealing signs is technically legal to my knowledge... what the Astros (and now the Red Sox) have been implicated in doing isn't legal at all.

Low tech sign stealing (runner on 2nd) is legal and has been a part of the game since it began.

Dodgers fans are normally the last people I would feel sorry for, but to lose back to back World Series to teams it turns out were cheating has to hurt. Sports talk in the LA area, particularly after the second one, was just brutal. The dodgers are choke artists, Kershaw is washed, fire Roberts, etc. Makes me kinda glad that my team sucks.

Carlos Beltran now out as Manager for the Mets as part of the cheating scandal during his time with the Astros. The plot thickens now with reports coming out that Jose Altuve is being accused of wearing a wire under his jersey that buzzed telling him what kind of pitch was coming during the ALCS game last year against the Yankees. I think that if all of this is true then the Astros need to be suspended from the playoffs for 2 seasons, first round draft picks need to be stripped, team needs to be fined, and players knowingly involved need to be suspended. If Altuve wore a wire then that should be a lifetime ban.

This is incredible.  MLB is saying no evidence of wearable technology but that kind of stuff is hard to keep quiet and Trevor Bauer says he heard about it.

That's honestly about the most Mets thing ever, and I find it hilarious.

Astros are going to get booed out of every stadium they visit this year. I wouldn't be surprised if there are free trashcan giveaways for the first 15k fans each game. They will be lucky to win 65% of their games.

Yes they will. They still have one of the most talented teams in baseball. They had the 3rd best road record in baseball.

I fully believe there is more at play here. I don't normally dive into conspiracy theories, but my tinfoil hat is strapped on right now.

65 percent is 106 wins. Not like booing does anything.

A ton of minor league teams have already planned trash can themed giveaways/events for when their affiliates meet up with the Astros affiliates this next year. I +++++ing love it.

Losing Cole is big.  Plus it will depend on who they bring in as a manager.  A guy like Showalter might put a damper on their chemistry.
