I always enjoy a website more when it has a 3 inch wide banner running across the top, making all videos on it about the size of a postage stamp.

10 years ago you wouldn't have complained about it. 

Sigh, me neither.

These guys still on the Astros are obviously getting some strategies for dealing with this from their PR team. So far they've gone with deny it, play the poor us card and use it to motivate, humor, pretend it doesn't exist. If they'd just come out and own it the world would go much easier on them. I doubt any current Astro will ever admit anything though, they've obviously been coached to never ever under any circumstance admit to cheating.

This is what happens when Manfred is too weak to punish any of the players involved. Wouldn't be surprised if they're already planning another cheating scheme

Yea so the GM and Manager can get fired again?  Something like this isn’t happening again.  Not any time soon.

It'll be orchestrated by the players and the management "won't know anything about it" since the precedent has already been set. There's enough arrogant douchebags in that clubhouse to do it

It’s not happening again in our life time.  The manager obviously knew it was happening.  If a manager sees it or suspects it they will be the whistle blower to protect their own job, same with the GM.  This wasn’t player driven.  Players can’t just get the video feed.  This was an organizational philosophy.

Would you be upset if Astros won the division again this season?

It's a good thing that the quote was listed in the article, because the sound quality was so bad that I couldn't make out what he said.

Just what the Astros need at a time like this. One of their players being a total asshole about it.

The Rangers used to be the Texas team that we really disliked.

Anyway, F the Astros so hard.

Here’s the thing. I haven’t seen or heard anything from the Angels organization (maybe I missed something) that berates the Astros organization about the sign stealing. We had a bad situation of our own to deal with this season and the Astros organization had many players wearing number 45 to honor Skaggs. 

It’s one thing for us to bash the Astros through social media for their scandalous cheating but it would be even better if our team would just beat them on a level playing field. That would be more gratifying than throwing rocks at a team that most likely prevented us from winning 73-79 games. Winning our division would be a much better way to get our point across.

The great unknown is how this will affect the Astros on the field in 2020 - without the edge of sign stealing, but also the psychological effect on the players from the repeated questions about this and the increased scrutiny from MLB.

Have you seen anything from any organization that berates the Astros organization about the sign stealing?
