    Look at what they started!

    Now they have the lizard wearing some sort of buzzer that zaps him when a fastball is coming.

    Holy shit, this is going to get worse, how much is too soon to tell.

    It will be very interesting to see if the Stro's lineup will take a step back in production - and how much of a step.

    I think that cheating is rampant in MLB and other sports. But if you do get caught, you deserve to have the legitimacy of your achievements questioned. Them's the breaks.

    The old saying in NASCAR is, if you ain't cheating, you ain't trying.

    Sign stealing has been a part of baseball since there has been baseball. Now they get pissed because it's gone high tech. I bet the one voter who left Derek Jeter off his HOF ballot is fuming over the "cheating."

    The Astros haven't been winning because they stole signs. They won because of great players and good managing for the most part. Maybe the Nationals this year and the Red Sox last year were better than them at stealing signs.

    Yeah, I'm not doubting the quality of players, just the stink that has attached itself. Continuing this thread won't make that go away. Better off starting fresh?
