    If they are smart, they will just put their head down, not say a word, accept the punishment that comes their way, and move on with their day.

    They won’t. They don’t seem like a team that accepts responsibility right off.

    This is going to get real nasty for the 'stro's.

    I have no problem with attempting to steal signs during the course of a game. Shit...we were coached to look in at the catcher(while on second)back in legion ball. Adjust your batting helmet if you think you see one finger( fast ball), or clap and shout encouragement to the batter if you think you see an offspeed signal.

    Using technology?

    Nope.

    And I really dug their swagger too.

    Geez. I thought though it was something to do with whistling?

    Of course, a lot of the pitches I saw in that video they did nothing with even with the “booms” ( or non-“booms” as it were)

    The bottom line is they knew what pitches were coming from illegal technology and that’s cheating. Just because they didn’t hit a homerun every single time doesn’t mean anything.

    Figuring out a pitcher’s tell or catching the sign from second base is totally different.

    I don't understand why the other team couldn't have figured that out within a few pitches and then earholed the batter

    well, not sure I would've picked it out either if I wasn't listening to it. I had to put ear buds in, but still, I was told what to listen for.

    My thing is the boldness of it all. Ok, if you are on the other team, you don't know to listen for it. It's all just stadium noise. But with the way players move around, it's not too long before today's Astro is suddenly on the other team. So is this a side hustle that you only key in with players like Altuve and Springer that you don't expect to be on another team, or how do you buy silence?

    It worked didn’t it. It was worth it to them. Now you know why Darvish got so shelled that last game. In addition to him maybe tipping his pitches, God knows if they had other information, which they probably did. I mean if there was ever a time to cheat, it would be Game 7 of a World Series.

    I think there's a lot that goes on that players keep quiet about.

    First, nobody likes a rat.

    Second, what comes around goes around. You never know when you may end up teammates or playing for some of those guys you just ratted out. Not to mention the likelihood of a 98 mph fastball aimed at your ear hole.

    My guess is that when the Astros played a team with a former player or coach who knew what was going on, they just didn't do it. See the Red Sox in the 2018 playoffs - I'm sure because it was Cora, they didn't do it.

    Well sometimes I guess the truth is more important to some players like Mike Fiers.

    Everyone should be ratted out for this.
