    I wasn’t paying close attention and then I heard what they were playing and just broke into a grin

    As an Ms fan I have very little stake in any World Series (as long as the Yankees lose) but as a sports fan I love a good story and goddamn does this Nats win make a good story.

    As a lapsed Mariners fan I’m happy the Astros lost

    But also the other Washington team is a great story

    So that's one for the record books, no home team won a game, that's f'ing weird

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    Also the guy who recorded the last out is the same guy who missed a play off game to attend the birth of his daughter.

    Here's a tweet from Jomboy, a blogger/tweeter who has gained significant reputation for analysis of things baseball throughout the season.


    "Astros using cameras to steal signs, a breakdown"
    *video showing that breakdown*

    Shows the speed at which the sign is being seen, reported, and announced to the batter (by an audible banging from the dugout), and concludes that the reporting of stealing the signs almost certainly has to be using technology to do so.

    Yeah, I'm pretty much fed up with this ownership and front office. They seem determined to be as skeevy as possible. I hope MLB forces Crane to sell the team for this.

    That said, I wouldn't be surprised if the Astros aren't the only team doing this--I'm more surprised that they were this blatant and didn't get caught before, honestly. But it seems pretty difficult to prevent teams from doing things like this in an age of near-invisible cameras, smartwatches, and so on. MLB should probably just let the battery have earpieces or some other secure electronic communication system so they don't have to use signs. Maybe have their own secure system and have the umps distribute it at first pitch and take it away after the game.

    Let's not forget that a years ago the Astros "hacked" into the Cardinals network.

    Edit: Oops, had it backwards.

    That was vice versa, the Cardinals hacked into the Astros' personnel database.

    Thankfully the window is likely closing on this group of like minded chuds for at least a little while

    They aren't, other teams like texas are also suspected of this. Its just that obviously the astros are the one people focus on because of the world series win and recent trip.

    Someone actually did some analytics on the audio from Astros games, and the evidence is so compelling as to be almost indisputable...

    Astros deserve an asterisk on their 2017 WS win. That's absurd.

    I hope every free agent gives Houston a wide berth this off season. I hope they tank next year.
