Pretty damning evidence right there.
Yup. MLB is going to have to try and do something. It's not just a few players who are mad, it's all of them.William Hill sportsbook set an over/under on the number of Astros batters that will be hit by pitches in the 2020 season at 83.5.
At this point, I'm taking the over ...
They are the same. Stealing signs isn't cheating, as long as the players are doing it themselves on the field of play and aren't using technology or utilizing people outside the field of play to do it.Ok, I'll play devils advocate on this topic. Is it the cheating, or the level of cheating?
Is what the Astros did much different than what the New York baseball Giants did to the Brooklyn Dodgers by stealing the catcher' s sign ( by telescope) and relaying it to The Giants' batter Bobby Thomson who proceeded to hit the homerun that won the pennant?
