Getting investigated for stealing signals in 2017. Not that anything will happen but interesting if true

The league should just use Jomboy’s video as evidence...

Jomboy's a Yankee fan, no wonder he sounds salty in the video.
At worst Manfred will dock them some 1st round draft picks

The Astros only got sanctioned because Jomboy supports the Yankees. LOL.

In fairness, as much as the minority (key word) of Astros fans have a “meh” attitude, most of them that I have seen are better than that and hated this cheating scandal.

AJ Hinch and GM Jeff Luhnow sacked by the Astros on top of their MLB 12 month suspension.

Players should be punished as well, they were the ones willingly taking the signals. 2018 Red Sox May be investigated as well.

No excuse but I’d imagine these aren’t the only teams to have done it.

$5m for a world series, easy decision.

The ban on any clubs talking about it is just pure bullshit, not unexpected but bullshit. Clubs shouldn't abide by the MLB rules and say what they want.

Disappointing to lose Luhnow but Hinch was a product of the team being so good, struggled at the D-Backs

At least you got a world series out of it. Braves cheated (international signings) and failed to win their division

And so it begins...

I read a suggestion on twitter somewhere that the LA Dodgers wear a T shirt during spring training that reads "REAL 2017 World Champs - NO GARBAGE"

Imagine what the fallout will be if it the Red Sox are also found guilty of cheating their way to the 2018 Championship - the Yanks Sox rivalry will plummet to a whole new low level.
