    Houston Astros admit to cheating in world series

    I think they should be fined and pay back their bonuses and give those bonuses to the dodgers

    Here's the question: I'm not much of a baseball fan anymore ever since the 80's really. But do you think that more fans are angry at this incident with the stealing of pitching signs than they were over the use of steroids, or do the use of steroids bother them more? I know what most of the fans who are BBers would say, (that this incident was worse than the steroid issue) but how about fans that aren't BBers?

    I think people just want to bitch.

    I would put my entire gear stash up that they aren't the only ones cheating.

    They just banged the trash can too loudly.

    I'm more pissed at the cheating it was a group effort, just because you take steroids doesnt make you a better athlete, how many of us use steroids and dont look like monty? the whole franchise profited from this from the merch to the ticket sales and endorsements. the moment in time was stolen. being a batter you only have that split second to decide if a pitch is good and whether you are going to swing or not. if you know that the pitch is going to be a ball or strike in advance you will crush that ball.

    All teams have been doing it in one form or another for decades. I don't see any problem with a guy on 2nd base stealing signs but when you get it refined down to a process that could change the out course of a season then that is really fucked up.

    I believe the Cardinals got busted for sign stealing a few years ago. The Red Soxs are next on the punished. Probably all teams except maybe the Pirates, Royals arnt doing some type of sign stealing. Tony La Russa was doing it ages ago and nobody knew till black jack outed him recently.

    I have zero issues with the steroid players because there was no testing in those days and you could use anything you wanted. Hell the Mets used to hand out greenies in huge candy dishes in their locker room. Until it went on a banned list. Baseball was the last to ban Andro. Thanks to a noisy reporter looking at the top of big Macs locker seeing the bottle. So sign stealing being illegal forever is a more offensive offence.

    They got caught and admitted it... it's time for Teams like this to be made an example of.

    Another scandal should be the juiced baseballs. Minor leagues started using MLB balls and HR's went up 56% The little girl that Albert Almora Jr hit has permanent brain damage. Her family should sue MLB if they haven't already started the process.

    Or juiced balls during the season vs dead balls in the post season...

    That's terrible for her and her family. I do believe nets need to be down both first and third baselines

    It's the equivalent of every player having a corked bat. Don't get me wrong I'm all for it you just have to protect the fans.

    If that's the case then they can selectively send one team more juiced baseballs than the rest of the league. For example the Twins.

    The Twins lead the league in homers with 307. I think they are fine lol. Maybe the Padres need the help or the Red s

    Who would have thought the Twins would shatter the MLB HR record?
