Eh. Boone was obviously abnormally jacked when he got to Seattle.

That's why it's good. You don't remember mediocre shit, you remember all time great options. That Vick/Dunn/Duckett run trio? Wins.

The bad thing about that team was that their best WR was fucking Peerless Price.

so that's how the Astors won in 2017. And to think I thought they were good, no just good at cheating.

Curious if youd have the same reaction if it was say the Indians or the Yankees who got caught.

No problem with stealing signs from the basepaths or the dugout. You can't be using cameras and stuff though, c'mon. That just falls under the category of "don't be a dick."

Stealing signs doesn’t help a guy hit an elite curveball. I know there’s so much more to the game but like, fuck.

With Kyle in the sense that going tech with it is a bit bbcish

I think it's absurdly over the top but also the Astros are a baffling organization as is.

Having pitch recognition done prior to the pitch even being thrown is a massive advantage. I mean, you can downplay it but that just makes you a BBD.

Especially on certain pitchers. Guys coming out of the bullpen who throw two pitches and there off speed stuff always end up being a ball but is hard to lay off of. The jomboy video being a perfect example.

If this stuff is true there should be some serious penalties. That being said, if this was happening during the regular season the 2017 Astros hit better on the road than at home, so it doesn't seem like it make that big of a difference.

clearly not you, if it happens to a team you like. How can you even say something like this?
