Amod Amod I forgot the apostrophe in "Nation's".... and it probably deserves to be capitalized. RIP.

Surprised to see the Chapman extension. There a weak closer market this offseason?

I mean it's good for both sides. He's not Rivera but he's still better than most and there's a chance that they'll end up losing some of their bullpen depth which has been a big part of their strength.

Worst case scenario for the Astros is if Cole, Stras, and Rendon land with the Angels.

Yikes.

Was about to say, those fuckers were really good at picking up signs. Seemed like every other postseason start they were reading pitchers "tipping".

Looks like a Rosenthal piece, so it will probably get lots of eyes. Curious if this becomes serious, or if Spygate, where the MLB tries to brush it away with a stern warning.

Ps. AJ Hinch can suck a dick, fuck that dickhead.

Now you are just a bitter Yankees fan.

I doubt anything will come from this aside for more scrutiny done to all clubs, who are likely just as guilty, stealing signs.

Yeah I doubt much actually comes of this. Anything more than a fine or something would be a surprise.

Hinch's retarded comments about the Yankees being "upset" look stupid now.

Hope the MLB doesn't pussy out like the NFL did. But I don't have faith in that. Definitely not gonna label other teams trying to "acquire" signs to this degree, but it certainly happens to some level. Where there is smoke, there is fire, and there has been tons of fire around that organization for awhile.

Would not be surprised to see a slight overpay here with the hope that Josh Jung takes over for them in 2-3 years.

Personally I hope they vacate the 2017 win as their hitting at home where they could video tape the singals was 3-4 times as good as on the road.

In addition I would like to see year long bans minimum for some players. Otherwise this opens the door for gambling fixing and other things.
