Red Sox too. Alex Cora seems to be a main instigator. Know we know why many of the top Dodger pitchers looked so lame against the Astros... Video is on Twitter of it happening, with bangs on a trash can right after the sign was stolen indicating pitches. No bang indicated fast ball. Won't post it here because the commentator has a potty mouth, but it's clear evidence.

Actually the news yesterday showed the outfield camera used and the banging of the trash can used to signal batter of expected pitch. It also showed interviews with owners, players and fans after the announcement of fines and firings.

In professional sports...NASCAR driver Junior Johnson said,"If ya ain't cheatin'...ya ain't tryin'."

Finding ways to bend the rules is and always has been part of the game. Human nature says it will always be part of the game.

Penalize the Astros 15 yards and get back to the game...don't know how that works in baseball!

Those responsible should get the same penalty (if not harsher) than what Pete Rose got. As I remember Pete bet on baseball games, can’t remember if he bet on or against his own team.

And how many other teams "cheat" on one way or the other. They just ain't been caught yet.
