New site looks great, I post on another board that uses the same format.  Took a few days to get used to it, but it is fantastic.

I’m not enjoying it. At all.

Starting to see the flaws you mentioned years ago; having trouble remembering what I thought his strengths were.

I’m genuinely  curious as to what lead Fiers to come forward,   There are plenty of former Astros out there and none said shit.  I’d also love to have an off the record talk with someone like Altuve or Bregman or George or McCann or AJ as to their thoughts on Fiers.

People have been talking about the Astros and other teams using tech to steal signs for years.   They never ran anything because they didnt want to use “anonymous” sources and hearsay.   Fiers opened the flood gates.

I'm really hoping The Athletic is done with the hatchet jobs and they expose other clubs.

Otherwise I'll have a hard time justifying paying them to throw piles of shit at my favorite team.

All they are waiting for is another Fiers..  Heard that they have sources, for other teams electronic sign stealing, but none are willing to put their names to it like Mike did.

Ok, I am officially fucking confused. Is this about 2017 or the whole history of MLB? In 2017, Beltran was a player, and Cora was a coach.

Sorry.  It is about 2017.   But the punishment, if there is any, wont be to any current players, due to the CBA expiring and the commish not wanting to deal with the players union right now.   Since Beltran is no longer a player, he could be in the cross hairs.  Ultimately my money is on a FO banning, a penalty and fine on the org.  Hinch is next on the likely to be sanctioned, followed by Beltran and Cora.

a new CBA to invoke after 2021.


Which is why it’s really unlikely any player faces serious consequences.  It’s gonna be front office, he org and maybe some coaches including Beltran and Cora.

I agree that this is going on elsewhere, but until there is a Fiers, willing to put his name in public against another team, the Astos are toast.

Fock Fiers.   Has he turned in his WS ring and check from 2017 yet?

Hope I am 1000% wrong on this, but what I heard tonight doesn’t give me much hope, in regards to penalties.  Best case is that the only action is that turd Taubman is banned for life, I fear that won’t be enough.

Doesn’t matter what I have.  Just saying MLB has enough.   The hammer is coming down,   To use an analogy, the cops told everyone no more speeding through the neighborhood.   10+ people decided F that and kept  speeding through the neighborhood, the Astros had the BRIGHT RED CORVETTE going 80, and got pulled over.  Now lets hope the penalty isn’t to harsh.

Pass along a couple things.   MLB told teams after the Red Sox Apple Watch stuff, that is it, next team is going to be in deep shit.  Astros appear to not have cared or  didn’t believe the warning. They have hell to pay now.  Someone is getting banned for life, hopefully it’s only Taubman.   This is similar to the braves GM situation, John Coppolella, who is now banned for life for breaking rules around international signings.  MLB has to make an example of someone who is flaunting the rules.

I personally don’t think the Astros are the only ones stealing signs electronically, but they got caught. Unless a Cubs, Yankee, Dodger, dBack, Red Sox, player s willing to put their name to it, like Fiers, the Astros are gonna be the only ones to suffer.


This sucks, but it is what it is.

Stephen A Smith and Max Kellerman got into it today, revolving on Cole’s availability in the 7th inning

A Stephen A Smith and Max Kellerman link?  About the only thing I'd be less tempted to click on is if you had linked to Clay Travis.

The Astros won 5/6 road games in the ALCS/WS.  Lost 4/6 home games.   Baseball be crazy sometimes.
