    IMO, I am right you are wrong. Fair and square.

    I certainly do hope that the these players and execs from other teams that are so 'outraged' by this sign stealing mess that their houses are squeaky clean. I would hate for them to come across as gigantic hypocrites like Vanlander( who has LOUDLY blasted sign stealing, juiced baseballs and the use of steroids in the past) is sounding.

    He does have a nice looking wife though, so there's that...

    It was. And he the commissioner said he would hold management accountable which is supposedly why no players were punished.

    If sign-stealing isn't categorically banned and the no-tech rule was instituted after the Astros used the technology, then their conduct doesn't constitute cheating and I don't see where the lawsuit has a leg to stand on.

    Good idea.. And I'll now announce that I have switched allegiance and am now a Dodger fan.. So if she's looking for a Dodger fan I am available..

    Go Dodgers!!!

    No, they shouldn't have lifted their dress, dropped their panties, bent over, and said **** me now. Sign stealing is part of the game. Apparently the Dodgers were complacent.
