I'm guessing the Orioles were posting their signs in the opposing team's dugout?

Goldstein. Another baseball outsider. Not surprising that the execs at the center baseball outsiders and Wall St types that did this in the first place, and that baseball is turning on them.

You can clearly hear whistles against the Nats in the 2019 World Series:

Game 6
Bregman HR vs Strasburg

Game 7
Gurriel HR vs Scherzer

 :hysterical: and they still lost. MLB insiders are saying they are going to go after the people involved too not just the organization. So the Mets may have to look for another manager.

I'm shocked that a writer-turned-exec and a bunch of Wall St./Consultant bros not only cheated, but acted so damn arrogant the entire time that everyone wants to see them go down. Just a complete turd organization and it starts with ownership. So glad we whooped their asses. It's too bad Astros fans are in total denial about all of this.

The assistant GM who gloated about getting Osuna was just the tip of the iceberg. crap, this is the same team that acted racist against Yu Darvish and it was totally OK. Clean house. Hinch should be gone for at least a year (Sean Payton style), because he's obviously in on this and if he was one of the ring leaders, then just tell him to pound sand. Luhlow should be gone, and good riddance.

Do we see a lifetime ban come out of this? It would be so sweet.

If anything conects to hinch then he should get one.  He's the manager.  He has to steer the ship and put a stop to things like this.

12 up appears to be clickbait. But they do cite others. See this tweet from Jomboy, who I do find somewhat credible.

There are several messages in the thread

And more, Preston Wilson makes a cameo post in the thread.

I understand the reluctance of opposing pitchers not saying anything. Your corner infielder nearest to the other team’s dugout should speak up for you.

Peter Gammons notes that since the Astros fired all of their scouts, there are lots of disgruntled former employees that are likely to cooperate with MLB’s investigations.

:shock:

Certain amount of supposition there but it should be interesting to see what MLB's investigation uncovers.

And what they will choose to cover up.

Is it more embarrassing to have been caught cheating and won a world series championship, or to have been caught cheating and lose the World Series??
