    Proof provided.

    Yanks and Red Sox were both caught stealing signs and were punished for the 2015/16 seasons. US district court judge Jed Rakoff has ruled that they must unseal a letter they received from MLB commissioner in 2017 about their sign stealing.

    Any Yanks fan bashing the Astros for this should now feel stupid!!!!

    Knowing the Astros and Red Sox cheated the Dodgers out of 2 opportunities to win World Series has made me less interested in baseball.

    that one extremely tainted Astros World Series win is really getting to you

    what you posted has zero to do with Astros World Series win


    They’ll probably never sniff another World Series appearance.

    Hmm, I said this before the first real game.........

    You can always go back to a previous post to that where I said bean-ball will end once the season starts.

    Not paying attention does not apply here on a prediction in spring training!

    Ha.
    You see the Dodgers in nonstop scandal at any point?

    Still burns ya. Then to see them fail when they can’t cheat. It’s beautiful.

    Jealous of what? Having a WS title that everyone puts an asterisk by?

    No thanks.

    Would you be fine with the Cowboys winning a Super Bowl because they hacked into the headset communication and bugged the locker rooms of opposing teams?

    Would you in subsequent years roll with the 'We cheated, we won, i'm good" mantra.
