Good on Mike Fiers for standing up and helping to blow the whistle on this. I wish more athletes would stand up for the integrity of the games they play(*cough* Patriots players *cough*).

As mentioned before, the whispers have been there for awhile, and this further cements that the Astros are doing their best to be a pretty deplorable franchise. I hope the drop off is swift and fast for those cheating cheaters.

Just so much to absolutely despise about that franchise.

Just when you thought you couldn't hate them more. That's gaming in the wrong way.

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

Ehh. It's hard to fully credit Fiers for bravery when he went along with it in the moment, got his championship, then started commenting two years after he left.

That said, he's still several steps up from Justin Verlander, who just cannot stop going out of his way to be a hypocrite.

This was basically what that coaching decision was:

Just saw this post and not sure what you’re talking about. Greinke had just given up a homerun and a walk. He had a short leash and he reached the end of it. The go ahead run was at the plate. And the guy they brought in had been lights out all season and playoffs. Funny picture but I don’t see how it applies. Lots of brilliant people after the fact of course. But Hinch played it perfect. Bring in Harris to finish the inning and have Cole pitch 8 and 9.

As for the cheating the Astros have been doing, yeah they are definitely guilty. No excuses. Not about to call Friers some kind of hero for what he says two years later though. Their punishment should be comparable but less than the Cardinals who actually committed criminal acts.

Sam Dyson, the Reliever who famously gave up Bautista’s bat flip home run, is being investigated for Domestic Violence. I knew that guy was a POS for the way he pouted and generally acted like an ###hat after giving up the homerun. This further cements that fact.
