    That's a bunch of shit too. It's still very difficult to steal the sign, decipher, then relay the info to the batter all before the pitcher hurls the ball towards the plate.

    Also, get better signs. Adjust. I dont know, but this is just annoying.

      I don’t think it would be an issue if it was coming from a runner on base and relayed by hand signals to the batter.

      but when you introduce a camera and bench players/coaches, and drumming on a garbage can to relay info to the batter, it gets more serious.

          Well they will...now. But its still stealing. And in some cases the info was being relayed to messages via smart watches. This was a very elaborate and very intricate operation.

            It may be a broader scandal, and it may extend to other teams. Definitely some players unable to sleep these days.
            The punishment the Houston Astros received in wake of the sign-stealing scandal earlier this week sent shockwaves throughout baseball, but some feel the scheme goes deeper than just video cameras and banging on trash cans.

                    We went 7 games and scored exactly the same number of runs in the series. Jee...I think we had might have had a shot without the cheating.

                      The game would be better if all teams did this.

                      Shake things up a little bit.

                        My guess is that all teams do. The Astros just got caught.

                          ESPN bottom line reporting that somebody implicated Tony LaRussa and another report says Cominsky Park has similar cameras

                          this could be much broader and a lot more heads may roll

                          Yu Darvish complaining that he may have been duped by cameras in playoffs instead of having a ‘tell’ in his delivery. I think he just sucks, at least while playing as a Cub

                            So if everyone is doing it, then it's a pretty even playing field, right?
