Y’all cheated and got away with it

Red Sox and Yankees have cheated also.

SI- Red Sox Cheating in 2018
quote:

Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred concluded an investigation that began in January by finding Boston used its video replay monitor to decode opponents’ signs during the 2018 regular season, a violation of Major League regulations. As in his Houston decision, Manfred did not discipline players.


CNBC- Sox and Yanks cheating

quote:

Major League Baseball said it's fining the Boston Red Sox for misusing Apple Watches against the New York Yankees.
The investigation follows a New York Times report that the Red Sox used an Apple Watch to steal signals from the Yankees. A Red Sox trainer was caught looking at his watch and then relaying a message to players.


quote:

MLB Commissioner Robert Manfred, Jr. said in a statement that he had investigated the complaint from the Yankees and that an undisclosed fine would be levied. The Yankees will also pay a smaller fine after the investigation determined that the team had separately violated a rule involving the use of the dugout phone in a prior season

The Athletic

quote:

Ghiroli: Blame for MLB’s sticky substance controversy falls first on the league


quote:

And while players like Cole, and perhaps upwards of 70 percent of the league’s pitchers — a conservative estimate depending on who you poll — are not blameless in this mess, they shouldn’t be alone in public scorn.

Make no mistake: This is a mess of Major League Baseball’s creation.

Like steroids, like video review room cheating, the liberal use of different substances on the mound has been around for years before it reached a public fever pitch. Only now, as the sport returns to its first full 162-game season since 2019, with a new baseball, does MLB find itself in hot water for years of feigned ignorance and not enforcing its own rules.



quote:

Cutting-edge organizations, several of whom employ actual chemists, had found the perfect sticky formula and the league had handed them an even better baseball for pitchers to manipulate.


Live look at Astros HQ


More hypocritical gold

quote:

But who enabled the system that allowed these pitchers to cash in? Who decided to ignore the sticky stuff for years? Was the initial hope that the entertainment value — like performance-enhancing drugs — would perhaps translate into more eyeballs and excitement for the sport? Does anyone think asking professional athletes to police themselves and follow the rules when there are millions of dollars and livelihoods at stake would work?




quote:

Whatever new rules or regulations are put in place will be to enforce an existing rule. And while it’s easy to pile on the pitchers and pitching coaches and teams who knowingly broke the rules, the blame should not start there.

It should start with the league that allowed it, which — again — has waited and waited until a problem blew up to actually address it. Just like steroids. Just like the video review room.

How did we get here? By the sport closing its eyes and looking away from the problem, game after game, year after year.

Commissioner Rob Manfred has a tough task now, effectively putting the genie back into the bottle. Still, it’s hard to feel any sympathy when the problem is largely self-inflicted.

I like adding the Red Sox to the list of teams who are our bitch. Kinda like the Rangers and Mariners.

Where you may be an active player on a MLB roster, I never have been that good. I’m a fan of the Astros. Not a player. I don’t carry the burden of my teams transgressions. I also don’t carry their victories as my own.

You go right ahead and live your life through someone else’s hard work. Go ahead and continue to keep your head buried in the sand.

I’ll continue to enjoy life and baseball.

Come back often, troll. We enjoy your witty banter. With each post, and I feel comfortable with speaking for the entire DAT regulars when I say this... with each post, you truly display your high intellect, whimsical sense of humor, and exceptional integrity.

Is this one of those riddles that you’re supposed to decipher for the true meaning?

I keep trying and every time it comes out as:
“Y’all sure don’t hate on that MFer nearly enough.”

Maybe I’m just not good at riddles.
