No doubt. Somebody woke up in a really pissed off mood this morning. Its my opinion that this was a bit too harsh especially this coming down an hour after the same two being suspended for 2020.

I was just listening to Dan Patrick and he played a clip of C.C. Sabathia calling out the Astros for cheating and saying they cost us (Yankees) a championship.

Patrick posed the question, "Hey C.C., didn't you win a championship with Roger Clemens and Andy Petitte?  Then shut up!"

I don't come in here much cause baseball is teh ghey but can someone explain to me why stealing signs is bad?  It's like it's their job.  You don't protect your signals well or change them up to keep everyone guessing then shame on you. 
This is really teh ghey.

"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shitty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

Stealing signs isn't illegal and goes on all the time.  That's not really what they were busted for or the big problem. 

The problem is you aren't allowed the competitive advantage of using technology to do it, especially in the dugout.  Gives the home team a much greater advantage. These guys were using direct cameras (aimed at the catcher) and TVs setup (basically around the wall from the dugout) so they could steal signs, also they had cell phones hidden in the dugout which would relay information from the home camera network team (who were in on the plan).

It's pretty much the definition of cheating.

Yes baseball is ghey and technically it isn't cheating until you get caught. 

But essentially there are MLB rules that say no electronics (phones, tvs, ipads etc) allowed in and around the dugout so really can't say no one didn't think of it, everyone else was just following the rules.  Plus MLB basically caught another team in 2017 doing this (on a much smaller scale than what was happening in Houston and then Boston) and wrote a memo to the league reminding them of the rules, and said next people we catch doing it will be made an example of.  Hence where we are.

IMO I say just allow the shit and let everyone do it, might make the game more interesting.

Ain't right in any sport.  From oregonlivedot I am a gay twerker that has no balls!!!!  I also have no idea how to use the quote function to post stories, so I annoy the piss out of others.  I like male genatalia in and around my mouth.


Spygate

Another NFL investigation found the Patriots illegally videotaped the New York Jets defensive signals during a game in 2007. The Patriots were penalized a first-round draft pick, fined $250,000 and New England head coach Bill Belichick was personally fined $500,000.
