    Re: Astros stolen signs scandal

    Is there any chance that Luhnow goes down with all of this?


    He seems like the slimiest guy in baseball and you’re not telling me he had no knowledge of something like this.

    Ok

    Announcers also know by the catcher’s fingers, even Thom

    There's suspicion the Astros may have used buzzing bandages (or maybe a buzzer concealed by a bandage?) to relay signs, per Joel Sherman: https://nypost.com/2019/11/18/why-ro...sign-stealers/

    It just keeps getting bigger and bigger.



    On a side note, I’ve unearthed a very rare recording of the 2017 Astros fight song:

    More news, MLB to investigate thoroughly

    99% of all numbers only tell 33% of the story so when looking at the numbers remember that numbers is plural...

    “Levying long suspensions for any interviewee found to have lied” is pretty interesting.


    Who knows what they consider to be “long”, but this will be fascinating to watch unfold.

    I'm interested in the legacy of the players involved.

    Guys are being kept out of the HOF due to using PED's. What about the guys who were involved in sophisticated cheating like this? I know there are different sides to how PED guys should be handled, but I don't see how using PEDs are any worse than using a buzzer to steal signs. Bregman. Altuve. Springer. Alvarez. They are flying under the radar right now but if details come out and they are named as beneficiaries of the cheating - it will not be good for those guys.
