    Cheating is cheating. Whether it has been done in the past doesn't make it right today.
    but it wasn't cheating till a bunch of fat cats made it cheating......sort of if tomorrow, a bunch of folks said, "well, now we're gonna make disallowing signalling from the catcher. makes just about as much sense to me. the whole thing is crazy. "Play Ball"!.........as far as i'm concerned signalling and the (so called) stealing of signals shouldn't be either, allowed or disallowed.........mac
    Live as if you were living a second time, and as though you had acted wrongly the first time.

    As usual, you are being obtuse in order to try to support your team's cheating. They can steal signs, it's the use of technology to do it that is not permitted. Not hard to understand.

    A guy on second base can look at the catcher give a sign to the batter, he just can't use a video camera to do it.

    Not really hard to understand.

    The Astros and Red Sox should start own league and have their own rules. Or lack of.

    you're right, of course, it's not hard to understand. what's hard, for me to understand, is why? Why is it illegal? No reason for it.......mac

    Just a guess, but it probably gives the home team an advantage that the away team wouldn't have. Access to prime location for camera placement, etc.

    Using technology to steal signs has been against the rules in the National League since 1961.

    As happy as I was to see Houston finally shed the "DisAstros" moniker, I am really sad they cheated to do it. Take the world series away from them. I do have a feeling that opening day, the stands will be full and people will have forgotten all about it.
