This is why I feel this is bullshit...

It's revisionist's history at this point. They changed the rules recently now they're going back punishing teams for shit that wasn't even a rules violation at the time it happened.

Plus, if we're being a buck wit it, you'd have to punish every team in baseball for sign stealing, looking for "tells," and all kinds of other little shit.

They should just blame Jason garret for all of this

Astros: yeah we cheated cause we didn't want to be known as a talented team that continues to fail we didn't want to be Jason garrets of baseball
You cant though cuz

Garret looks at the astros as dirty savages

Banging on trash cans?

To all my cowgirls wigglin they shakin they curves

God gave you two good hands so you can make it clap

How can you tell?

The interview I posted the catcher said all of the things he does to keep signs from being stolen and it still doesn't work all the time. He even said how pitchers have tells in their approach to the plate, their stretch, glove/ hand placement, etc.

That's why I said if they're gonna pop the Astros like this they need to get EVERY TEAM because they're all guilty. Just because one uses a video monitor and the other uses hand signals doesn't justify or lessen the fact that cheating was done.

I actually understood fully what you saying

But you cant say EVERY team cause you do not KNOW that

But most? yeah

However i got no pity for Astros cause apparently they were blatantly doing it.

I'm a yankee fan i dont want the astros world series or mvp stripped

But i COULD be talked into an asterisk

But if the yankees cheated?

You got PROOF?

Punish them too, same way.

if its multiple incidents with ANY TEAM then the punishment has to DOUBLE.

again you can't get caught cheating on a test and your defense is

well everyone else cheated!

Plus There is statements, a public snitch, etc.

You gotta take this one. Precedent has now been set. So the next one gonna get the hammer too.

But I've always been curious how the astros bench during the world series was doing some mad offensive rascist slanty eye sh*t to Yu and it basically got ignored.

I was much more offended by that and how it was basically ignored and unpunished.

No matter what now unfortunately everything the Astros do going forward and accomplishments of the past is suspect.

Red Sox in the same boat

And it seems those old Oakland As teams too.

So don't worry your Astros aint gonna be aline for long.

I see Yankees fans pissed, they got knocked off playoffs, some are even suggesting that they lose their championship, but silent on the championships the Yankees won while several members of the team were using steroids

fuck dat... we lost B2B world series
But its done

To me the asterisk is the best solution

That hurts more than fines, suspensions, firings, etc

Baseball cares about only ONE thing

NUMBERS

that is like a damn permanent scarlet letter on that team or any other soul

Steroids was on EVERYONE but was still in the greenies level...

This one until further notice?

Is on certain teams who were just egregious and blatant with it.

There's a picture floating around of Aaron Judge staring at a monitor ssssooooooo hard that he's damn near got his nose touching the screen.

And in my post that gold glove catcher kept it real:

Every person hates that it could happen to them and their team, but all would gladly take full advantage of the situation if they are in the batter's box and they know what's coming.

It's a game of cat and mouse... you constantly have to be one step ahead of the competition because they're trying to get an advantage in a game where if you're getting a hit 30% of the time you're at bat you're a fuckin all star

/thread.

You said it.

But here the issue

you can't get caught speeding and while the cop writing the ticket

you yelling screaming pointing out all the speeding cars.

Cause here the thing if that buzzer under jersey thing turns out to be TRUE?

what your defense then?

Well we DID DO that but the other teams WERE ABOUT TO do it to?

You gotta just take this L.

And i wouldn't keep pointing at OTHER teams either

Cause as you seen?

Now you just pissing off the WHOLE family..

Now creating an us against the world thing

And that is a death knell.

You want EVERY SINGLE minor league, agent, scout, executive, player, free agent, ex player, season ticket holder, writer, journalist

the Astros EVER pissed off

Suddenly RAT?!?

Astros apparently have a ton of haters already so it like it would HARD

Just let this go wait a while the internet is undefeated

If there is more teams involved?

It will come to light.

That's it though a lot of teams were doing it...

Back in 2017 it wasn't illegal to have a monitor pointed right at home plate from centerfield... nobody gave a shit... plenty of teams did it... and I've seen where other teams have been telling the mlb about trash can banging the whole time...

AND THEY DID NOTHING

Ssssoooooo how much of an issue is it really when the association don't do SHIT aboutit??

Teams steal signs all the time. If you've played baseball or followed it seriously you know this. With this true you have to do something to combat it.
