cheated and stole the outcome of games and seasons. They got no punishment.

Professional baseball is screwed up.

Support college baseball while it is still a more pure game.


It's a bit more complicated than that though. A lot of those players

are now on new teams who were not involved (or at least were not caught) in the sign stealing scandal. If you come down hard on those players and, say, suspend them for a full season, you heavily punish their new teams and those fans who were not complicit. I think that's the reason that MLB chose to drop the hammer on the front office personnel instead of the players.

Is it fair? No, not really. But I do understand the decision. Now that a harsh warning has been issued I would, however, be fine with the MLB coming down hard on any players that may attempt this again in the future.

That is why God invented the wallet! If you get in it, you punish the indiviual.

“Drop the hammer”? They should have stripped the Astros of the ill-gotten Trophy and changed the record book. Anything less is a travesty.

just who profited, or didn't, from it.


Astros should get worse penalties yes

but I don't see why Pete Rose always has to be brought up. Clear cut breaking of an ironclad rule. The dude has gained more fame and spent much more time in the spotlight from being banned than he ever would have had he just been let in the hall of fame. And he has milked it for everything it's worth.

I agree, seems way out of balance to me, and Pete Rose should be in Hall of Fame, been long enough, hate to have that guilt on me if he died

they cheated and won games. they didn't cheat by betting on games and then throwing them to make money. Rose was a great catcher, but a pretty stubborn mule at the end.
