    It happened. Telescopes and telephones have been used too. Not defending the Astros in the least but the reaction seems possibly over the top to me.

    It has happened. It would also be against the rules....which means the Sox are probably doing it

    Looks clear the Sox will get slapped hard too, and I'm okay with that. It's all the hand-wringing and piousness I can't take, not the enforcement of rules and penalties.

    Itís totally over the top. Tell them to knock it off, slap a wrist and move on
    Acting like this is some terrible baseball crime is ridiculous

    I think a year suspension, which is what a second time PED offender would, get is appropriate for the organizers

    the sox were warned not to use technology in 2017. then they doubled down, hired big cheater alex cora and won a championship. seems fair.

    Everybody suspected steroids but were fine to look the other way until it came out. Cocaine, gambling, video screens and banging on garbage cans. Been there.

    Nope. Second place in the East. And the Bruins are in first. How are things going in New York this winter?

    hint: not good. Suck it, Trebek.

    There’s currently three years worth of MLB threads within the top ten spots in the Padded Room.

    This is going to be a great season.

    I don't think I'll be chiming in as much, and when I do I will probably be a little pissy. Apologies in advance.

    Oh please, literally every time a guy is on second base, for any team, they are stealing signs.

    Damn, the AL Central is going to be fun to watch this year.

    Twins sign Donaldson to a 4 year $92m deal.

    While the Twins lack pitching they can hit a ton.

    The White Sox added Grindal, Encarnaciůn and Keuchel.

    The Tribe still has the best rotation in Clevinger, Beiber, Carrasco, Plutko, Civale and Plesac and they didn’t trade away Frankie Lindor or Jose Ramirez.

    27 days till pitchers and catchers report.

    Attempting to steal signs in real time with human error is part of the game. Using telescopes / cctv etc is banned for good reason. Obviously MLB disagrees. If it's supposed to be cool, why not just tell the batter what pitch is coming? Let them look at the catcher? It's ridiculous. Yes, players and teams will always look for an edge but they had been warned not to look here because it was not 'an edge', it was cheating.

    You guys are either complete homers or have a screw loose.

    And look at the 2019 red sox without the cheating... that was a pretty sharp regression from a 108* win season with the same squad.
