Difference with the Astros it was a whole team. in the past at least it has been players majority of the time, Even the Black sox scandal was not the whole team just some players. They got severely punished. the issue here is players got away with the cheating and the team still keeps the title. The way Manfred handled this is the real problem. The way the Astros players are acting this year is disrespectful.

The 1951 Giants also cheated with a sign stealing scheme at Polo Grounds.

they just got caught, this didn't end all cheating- deep down a lot of people are thinking "dang why didn't we think of that"- I loathe the Astros, they've always been overly arrogant s.o.b.'s in my opinion, I'm just pointing out truth now we know why they were "overly arrogant"

SDS

That's like saying to your parents "Well x did it so it's fine that I did"

See the mariners never cheat, but they also never win so maybe you’re on to something 🧐

Yeah they did get caught and what was done, nothing nothing at all to the players. That is the real problem, No one is saying others are not cheating, do not use that as an excuse that others did not get caught so it was ok for the Astros players to get away with it. Manfred is a tool. If this is how Manfred wants to be then Pete Rose should be re instated and Joe Jackson should be in the hall of fame if cheating does not matter cause everyone does it mentality.

So if they are not caught until much later they didn’t do anything wrong? My point aligns with the OP, most sports fans cheer for a team that has cheated, no need to crucify past the punishment they received.

The Astros are garbage and they should be treated accordingly. The cheated, got caught and proceed to wine and cry about how they were treated after. If Alex Bregman came out day 1 and said” yes we did it , if your not cheating your not trying “ I’d be 100% behind them. I don’t agree with that sentiment but I can respect a man makIng his own decisions and taking the Rewards & consequences he gets from those decisions. This was not how it was handled at all. The players didn’t accept any responsibility, they acted like how dare we disturb their greatness by finding out they cheating and demanding they pay for
It.

when I was a little leaguer back in '83 I listed Pete Rose as my favorite baseball player, I hear ya- too much hypocrisy period. Barry Bonds was hands down the greatest player to play the game, he could recognize a pitch before it left the pitchers hand- steroids didn't help him do that, steroids didn't give bonds "super eyes", he truly is a Giant. Roger Clemens just did what everyone else was doing at the time and kept doing what he did shutting them down. Sometimes in your mind you're like " well [censored] if they're doing it and not getting busted and its making those scrubs better I may as well do it too, I aint a snitch and I know if its making your scrub zzz better I'm dominating". Bonds and Clemens are first ballot, Bonds was a [censored] to the media, tell me how steroids helped him finish with an on base percentage over .500 for 4 straight years- between the ages of 36-39 when most couldn't remember their prime, steroids didn't do that the greatest eye in baseball did that.

Did you read the article he posted. How many hundreds of players have been involved in sign stealing schemes? Do you suspend or fine every single player on the team? It starts and end with team management and they were taken care of. Players generally listen to coaches.

Go do some research on players that got caught cheating as a team and what was the punishment. The black sox scandal the players were kicked out of baseball.
Players on Roids once they enforced it are suspended, The ones that have been suspected of it are not making the HOF. Players that get caught with Pine Tar other substances to cheat get fined suspended. Tell me again what happened to the Astro players What were the punishments. Rose is out of any thing to do with MLB.

Sign stealing is not cheating but using electronics to do so is
