Look I am NOT enough of a baseball fan purist or historian to comment above fanboy level@playahaitian, I've read two authors thoughts on this that sum up my feelings on this topic perfectly... here's one, written by a Kansas City Royals sports columnist:
"This story is filled with contradictions. Stealing signs is ok manually, except when you get a fastball in the ear for it. But it’s definitely not ok with technology, except everyone was doing it. And it’s happened, with available technology, throughout history. It wasn’t illegal until 2019, except we already had two teams busted for it in 2017. Except those were the Yankees and Red Sox, which created a high profile incident that went away quietly with just fines for both teams (because, of course, both were doing it). The Astros reportedly cheated that same season and are looking increasingly like they’re going to get the book thrown at them.
If someone wants to throw the book at the Astros, only the Astros, for stealing signs - it seems intellectually dishonest."
Baseball is so fucked and these dudes KILLING ME with their "holier than thou" mentality when this shit is so unbelievably contrary. "You can cheat, but don't cheat in a way we don't want you to cheat because that'll ruin the integrity of the game..."
Are you fuckin kidding me?
To me the punishment based on the trash can shit alone, is overkill. I'm not saying we don't deserve punishment, but based on sign stealing alone is contrarian bullshit when you consider that sign stealing is apart of the game, the good sign stealers are applauded, and the general consensus is that you gotta protect yourself from signs being stole rather than have the mlb step in and do it for you.Look I am NOT enough of a baseball fan purist or historian to comment above fanboy level
I completely understand a Astros fan calling bullsh*t and feeling persecuted
but like I've said from JUMP
People just don't LIKE ya'll
it has reached a point where no MATTER what the TRUTH is?
I am NOT sure of the specific THING people hate.
but man oh man they HATE your squad.
Players aint go after current players like this during the STEROID stuff.
Baseball Union the most powerful and united period
this is unprecedented.
Ya'll got mike trout to say more in one interview then he has his ENTIRE career.
As a Yankee fan who is close friends with Red Sox, Cardinal and Cubs fans.
You gotta just let this one go.
Astros ALREADY confessed they cheated to a degree, owner said they broke the rules.
Its done, cause all the tough talk? Then DO NOT SAY SORRY, but you can't be a little bit pregnant.
and the Astros apparently BEEN low key hated.
Owner on down
Now its just your time, sorry.
TRUST i KNOW how it feels.
But ya'll were holier then thou too, ya'll been talking sh*t, the slanty eyes stuff, the sign stealing ...
I got people who ACTUALLY PLAYED and do NOT LIKE ya'll
get off the astros dicks, and I mean giving an explanations your owner would pay MILLIONS for TODAY if I told you....
but will NOT go on the record!
Cause at the end of they day?
They said they STILL wrong and they got CAUGHT and then acted like assholes. (not in that order)
It is REALLY THAT simple.
All ya'll had to do was APOLOGIZE and KEEP IT MOVING.
Cause yeah OK lets say EVERYONE cheating (they ain't) but lets say..
Why you gotta rub it people's faces?
Personally I don't care.
But Astros and Piratres etc FAMOUS for ENFORCING the UNWRITTEN RULES.
whelp THIS is what you get.
don't BLAME the fans and the media, cause WE been telling you all that sh*t was gonna be the death of the sport.

BUT, this team has been on some fuckery for years now and it's finally caught them. They banned reporters from dugouts, had a sexual harassment case I believe going on, have an alleged racist for an owner, tanked for 3 years straight, picked up that woman beater Osuna on the low when nobody else would touch him with a 10ft pole, had yuri making slanted eyes at an Asian pitcher... yeah, these niggas was wildin'... factor in all of that as a collective and punish all those sins, I'll gladly take it and the bad guy image that comes with it. But don't come at me with this purity of the game crap... you can kick rocks with that shit.
But it don't matter now.They got fined in 2017 for cheating and stealing signs. He need to shut the fuck up and go help Chapman find that BOMB that Altuve hit off him to go to the world series... I hear it's somewhere near Egypt now
If the Astros way is not being a pushover and allowing yourself to be scapegoated by a league that has allowed cheating to continue on under the guise of gamesmanship and punishing some more severely than others then so be it.Okay
I see this is gonna be the astro way
Good luck with that.
It aint no bandwagonI really dislike this cac. I see he's taken time from his hate of the Rockets to join the anti Astros bandwagon.
One thing is clear. When it's time to vote on Manfred his ass is outta there. Theres no coming back from this. Now he's trying to hide behind the players union. Tony Clarke just blasted his ass. This is an entire clusterfuck of epic proportions.They just got the fcking commissioner of major league baseball to issue one of the most direst no nonsense apologies in the history of sports for that hink of metal comment
Baseball aint apologize to jackie Robinson with that much contrition and sincerity
These white players about ride on this dude for the rest of his tenure.
And if i was the astros?
I would immediately and i mean now
never ever speak of this chrating stuff again
Cause he like an inch from taking titles.
Its all leadershipOne thing is clear. When it's time to vote on Manfred his ass is outta there. Theres no coming back from this. Now he's trying to hide behind the players union. Tony Clarke just blasted his ass. This is an entire clusterfuck of epic proportions.
We could NEVER be the Cowgirls. We are the STANDARD in this shit.When was number 27 won? Y'all moving into Dallas cowboy territory...
Remember when the Yankees were relevant?
