    Yeah I just expected it already with the comments that have been made. This could get serious in a hurry if someone got hit in the head or something. I think serious penalties need to be put into play.

    Bean-ball will end well before the season starts. Some are just getting their personal messages in while it’s hot. This will tail-off soon and all will be back to normal. Pitchers won’t give free bases up when it counts.

    Watching the Astros game. I see no beanballs.

    Looks like yet another sign that this is all being overblown.

    Let’s have a little analysis fun.


    2017 (Astros accused of an admit to cheating)
    Astros beat Yankees and then beat dodgers to win World Series.

    Zero, I mean zero swings at any of 51? Clayton Keyshawn pitches?


    2018
    Cheater mastermind #2 (Alex Cora) becomes manager of Red Sox and throroughly cheats better than mastermind #1(Carlos Beltran). Boston smokes Houston 4 games to 1 in ALCS.

    Boston does what Houston did year before and beats Dodgers again.


    2019 (Buzzer Gate)
    Cheat. Cheat, cheat and Washington STILL finds a way to win. Admittedly changing thungs because they knew Astros were cheating.

    Imagine if Astros actually won vs Nats.

    51 sliders and curveballs and zero swings.

    Astros waited for fastball ONLY signal to be relayed to them

    You do realize that Gerrit Cole was with the Astros in 2018 and 2019 and according to him, he didn’t see any cheating going on. Now who should I believe? The guy that was part of the team or someone that wasn’t? Hmm

    I’ll help you out with facts

    1. “Cole also says he knows of no cheating in 2018 even though MLB reported finding evidence when doing its winter investigation, which led to suspensions, lost draft picks and a $5 million fine from commissioner Rob Manfred, and then Astros owner Jim Crane firing his GM and manager.

    2. Yankees pitcher Gerrit Cole says he didn't see any Astros cheating in 2018 or 2019


    Yup... bulletproof post you made there... hmmmm...

    I didn’t say there wasn’t any cheating...I was wondering about who to believe..the one that was on the team or one that wasn’t? Hmmm

    Weird how a teammate wouldn’t know about cheating going on but possible I suppose..hmm

    Is he covering for his former team? Nahh couldn’t be..

    Respectfully. I see the point you are making.

    But in a world of choosing words carefully.
    I just don’t buy it based on my bolded pieces in previous post.


    If he says he didn’t see it or knows of no cheating then he can never be asked why he didn’t say something or do something.

    Nothing on you my friend.... it’s just the world we live in.

    Firing of the HC, firing of the GM. $5 million fine and the loss of their first- and second-round draft picks in both 2020 and '21. What did the Pats pay in punishment?

    I think the Astro players should just take the villain perspective...

    Watch some pro-wrestling interviews.

    Start referring to opposing fans as "humanoids" and "ham & eggers".

    When a player comes out to the on-deck circle, just stand there with arms folded and glare into the crowd with a smug look on their faces.

    No doubt the Astros will head into the season with an us against the world attitude. This is a close knit group of players and they will rely on each other to get past this.
