If the Cardinals are so good at stealing signs and communicating it to their hitters, and it was indeed the reason for the high OPS with RISP, then theoretically wouldn't it be possible for them to replicate it?

Do we even believe the stealing sign theory?
There was a theory as last season progressed.

Teams started taking better precautions against the Cards and their OPS with RISP started to normalize as the season wore on, and disappeared in the playoffs.
