    He was saying this morning that teams have been complaining, "screaming" is the term I think he used, to MLB for YEARS about the Astros and cheating.

    We all know that losing sucks, but how does anybody feel good about themselves by outright cheating in order to win?

    Apparently they don’t care because they’ve been doing it for years.

    Well it is the same franchise that has an openly racist player, traded for a wife beater, and had to fire an executive because he’s a fucking moron and acted like a disgusting pig in front of women. What was even more pathetic was they assumed at first that the women were lying, and then had egg all over their faces. They’re just a dirty organization. Whatever it takes to win I guess.

    Maybe it’s a good thing they got kicked out of the National League...

    I just realized the Orioles Gm Mike Elias was the assistant GM in Houston. If he brought their sign stealing techniques to Oriole Park last summer it didn't work out too well lmao.

    Even if you know a 98 mph fastball is coming, you still have to be able to hit it.

    For that you need talent.

    The Orioles are bereft of talent.

    Wear headphones.




    It's one thing to read about them cheating, but it feels more gross actually seeing how prevalent it was.

    A little more close to home for me, the Cardinals hired Jeff Albert to be their hitting coach because of the reputation he built in Houston and what he did for those players. They're supposedly implementing his hitting philosophy across the entire organization and firing anyone that disagrees with the change. Their rationale is the results he produced in Houston. His results with the Cardinals are terrible, and it shouldn't be a surprise why. In Houston his hitters knew exactly what pitch was coming which makes it a lot easier to "hit your pitch" as he preaches. In St. Louis, they aren't doing it and it shows.

    Given he had to be involved during his time in Houston, he should be fired from his job here in STL.

    This whole thing is embarrassing and disgraceful. I’m glad I’m not an Astros fan.

    not a good look, then again, neither is essentially wiping away 42 minor league teams. These pro leagues need to take a serious hit in the pocketbook - but they won't.
