    take away their world series and make the entire team sit out a year - no pay. Definitley time to be banging trash can lids by fans at every fricking game they play. Lets see what the astros batting averages are this year. I would be they will be down. they even said they Yu Darvish was tipping his pitches, the guy got run out of LA because of them.

    Astros hitters to make hof of these is Altuve. Did he not cheat? How significant was 2017 for him? Very.

    Altuve is a hitter without the center field camera.

    Yes. They cheated and should probably be banned like shoeless Joe.

    I heard from a friend that altuve wore a wire in Alcs vs Yankees and in other more recent games where he did not allow teammates to rip off his jersey because of device. If this shit is true I’m sorry that’s as corrupt as Pete rose shit .

    Anyone found guilty of being involved should be banned for life from MLB period coaches/players!! The details and tactics that went into this are insane!! Completely puts the game to shame. This IS right up there with the Pete Rose scandal. They shouldn't have the luxury whatsoever of being around the game

    If the league doesn't do anything significant, the rest of the players in the league should take it upon themselves to make a statement. ie HBP every AB for at least the first time they play against each other.

    If Pete Rose had come clean from the get go I think he would be in a better place at least his relationship with mlb. If these guys don’t come completely clean I would think there days are numbered. Hopefully they don’t get the Hollywood treatment and there held accountable for there actions . This is as bad as throwing a game for money . Pete Rose is a degenerate but he only hoped his team had the same Charlie hustle in there game as did he . That doesn’t make it right what he did by any measure but he wasn’t changing the outcome .

    i think they should take away the world series and suspend players. banning seems over the top since cheating is in baseballs dna.
    not suspending players is so stupid though. anytime a player is at bat and you can hear a bang on a trash can would indicate the player was involved in some way. why bang if the player wasnt aware that there was some sign stealing in place? they were all cheating and got caught, should we stripped of the title. they still get the money and the moments but the rings and trophy should be taken away.

    New England continued to cheat because despite losing draft picks and money, they kept their titles. It started with the first SB vs the Rams and continued for years.

    Houston lost draft picks, money, GM and manager. They kept their title.

    Does anyone really think these 2 clubs give a shit about what they lost, if they still keep the titles???

    Until you hit them where it really hurts, and I'm not talking about the wallet, it will continue.

    When a commissioner has the balls to strip teams of accomplishments, then it will stop. Until then, as long as the championships remain untouched, it will continue. The players involved should have had lengthy suspensions also.

    Y'all will get over it in few months. Did sign stealing helped Stros' become top notch defensive team? They got punished so move on. Until Patriots, with repeated violations, get crucified I don't want to hear all media's bias opinion.
