I think this change will run me off.

The Astros,  and by extension OWA, are at a crucial point that will determine whether the great teardown and rebuild will have lasting a effect or whether they'll go away meekly so that the Yankees,  BoSox, and Dojers can reclaim what they've hemorrhaged money to try to obtain.

All hands on deck. The enemy is all about us.  If Waldo says we're heading to MySpace then by God that's where we'll head.

And about shooting him in the head and women are property.

Sounds like a charming fellow.

Not exactly the beacon of enlightenment.

He'd have to climb several rungs to reach troglodyte.

I don't Twitter, so I'll have to take you guys' word for it.  I just wish people still spoke in non tweets.

He made comments about guns and the possibility of Bernie Sanders being elected.

Disappointing to me.

He's out of options.  He may simply be an insurance policy at backup for Stubbs (i.e. if/when Stubbs is called up he goes bye bye).

So Chirinos (or Machete) may still be in the cards at starter. But I guess we won't get both.

I hate a snitch.  Would love to see Fiers locked up in a cell with G Gordon Liddy.  He’d learn the real meaning of the term, “Rat”.

You wrote G Gordon Liddy and my brain transposed it to Hunter S Thompson.

I think either would be entertaining.

I wouldn’t read Evan Drellich’s drivel if it got me a free handjob from Scarlett Johansson. I sure as shit wouldn’t pay to read it.

Well you wouldn't be able to see straight to read it anyway.

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.

Please don't call him that.

Mike plays left field for this team and is a goddamn professional hitter.

Jomboy has made The Athletic. About the Astros, of course.

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.

so it fair for some but not fair for all?

Of course that's what it is.

This is a business,  not a court of law.

I doubt they will touch Beltran or Cora. If so, slap on the wrist.

To come down on Cora would open the door for folks to wonder about the 2018 champs too.

And we can't have that now can we?

They should have known that after they saw the spiral beard.

A fucking cat tail beard.

The media drools all over Jeter's postseason records while ignoring the fact that the modern 3 round postseason began in the 1990s.  The LCS started in 1969 and was a 5 game format for 16 seasons.

But sure,  get on your knees for the late 90s Yankees and their cumulative postseason stats.

Been asking myself that question for awhile. Wonder what the other As think of him.

They should know they can't trust him.

Agree with both of you.

Reactionary assholes have had it in for Lunhow since his days in St. Louis.  His and the Astros success has only fueled their zeal to bring him down, due process be dammed.

And I hope the 2020 Astros mount the biggest "Eff You" season on the history of sports.

So, just to be clear, this is an investigation into the Astros.  Any and all Astros employed now or previously for anything over the last three years and, maybe more.  Full stop.  Not an investigation into sign stealing by electronic means based on the rules as they existed at the time.  Ok, gotcha.

What about this made you think it would be anything else?


(In theory any 2017 violations would be subject to rules in place at that time).

The Astros would have to add more than Reddick (money and/or some other player) to get that done.

My guess has been that if they move him,  the Astros will be footing a significant portion of his salary.

I think any credible investigation would have to include a look at previous/subsequent seasons.

Now whether this turned out to be a credible investigation in other aspects is anybody's guess.

Funny to me that Chirinos is 2 years older than Machete. Would have guessed the opposite.

No doubt most outlets have been satisfied that Jomboy's  videos constitute proof that the Astros stole signs electronically throughout the 2017 regular and postseasons.

His very first video on the subject ended with him cursing out AJ for his whistling comments in 2019. 

I think he fancies himself a later day Matt Drudge on this matter.   Nevermind that signaling isn't illegal, or that it's been around since the dawn of baseball signs. .

I'll probably watch his non-Astros content if he ever makes any,  but he can go fuck himself in the meantime.
