How about them Dirty Sox? What should be done?

Recommended Posts

They are busted. Caught red handed, or at least on video stealing signs. Everybody involved should be banned for life!

  Too harsh?

Stealing of signs the old fashioned way is perfectly acceptable...and expected.  Using video or electronics to do it is not.  Give them similar punishment for what the Patriots got for Spygate...though I don't recall what that was.

Anyone interested in baseball history should pick up the book: 'The Echoing Green: The Untold Story of Bobby Thompson, Ralph Branca and The Shot Heard Round The World'. Covers the 1951 National League pennant race between the Brooklyn Dodgers and the N.Y. Giants, that ended with the most famous homerun in MLB history, after the Giants were 13.5 games behind the Dodgers in August.

Stealing signs was a big part of it.

A guy on base picking up signs from the catcher is one thing. A outfield camera picking up the signs and relaying that info to the dugout then to the batter electronically seems to be pushing it tho.

The '51 Giants used a Navy telescope set up in an upstairs office of the building in dead center of the Polo Grounds, an electronic buzzer system and a catcher in the bullpen.

Then there's Kellyanne Conway, who has an uncanny resemblance to Beavis.

That's just flat out cheating. I've never been into that crap. If you can't win on the field and you have to resort to trickery to win, that's just another brand of loser in my book. Fuck the Sux!

If it favors the home team 100% and uses electonic or other non between the dugout and field it's CHEATING! What's next bugging the visitor's dugout or locker room....or is that being done now? :blink:

In the 90s, I seem to recall the sux accusing the tribe of something similar. Nothing was ever proved either. I do remember their pitchers being a whiny bunch tho.

What are you  if you have Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Huckabee and Betsy DeVos all standing naked in front of you?

Disqualification of post season play should solve this issue rather quickly. My Dad said to me once, "If the punishment is too harsh & unfair, you won't do it again, will you?".  The older I get, the more I agree with his thinking.

If they could prove that this cheating went on in specific games....or specific numbers of games.....those game should be forfeited.  How would that go over?

Problem is proving it for each game.

I remember thinking that 12-10 loss at Fenway seemed fishy. Mitch Moreland hit a chest high fastball 400 feet.

I vividly recall thinking: "How the hell did he hit THAT pitch like that. He swung at it like he knew it was coming..."

Well, maybe he did.

Better then having Hitlery standing naked.

OK....but I will be glad to have Melania standing naked.  (actually, I understand that she did quite a bit of that when she was younger)

Nice staying on topic but if you get off hot chicks is a good way......well only Melania qualifies there so far. Just sayin'.
