While Mets manager Carlos Beltran was part of it, he was a player at the time and thus was not suspended.

The Astros got off light. They have always been a scum team and this simply shows their true character.

I actually hate the Astros and their fans, but how the frick did the Cardinals get nothing for what they did and Houston get hammered? One case involved corporate federal espionage and dudes went to prison.


A low level member of the cardinals staff logged into a database, using the same login information he always used while the database was being used by the cardinals. There was no significant extent to which it was utilized, and there was no ask by the management to do it.

They lost draft picks and were fined. They did not benefit from a sham world series from it. You don't see any difference here?

Guess no international money has been taken?


That would have been better than just the $5 million fine. $5 million isn't anything if it just comes out of the organization and not from the international pool that you have to use to compete with other teams.

They got their title, but no one but trashy Astros fans will actually respect it. Might as well put a big star next to it in the record books to show it was tainted.

As a practical matter, the Astros are also no longer the 2017 champions. Everyone knows they cheated.

Pretty sick how almost all the championships my teams have won across all sports have some sort of asterisk with it

we will see. the suspensions and fines are non penalties. the draft picks are legitimate, but hard to really know what their impact will be right now

Is anyone else hanging a banner?

Are they confiscating my Houston Astros World Series champion Christmas ornament?

No?

Oh ok then.
