The current punishment is designed to be window dressing. It couldn't be weaker of a punishment. They obviously didn't take it seriously enough to prevent this again. They're going to keep on cheating for years and that's wrong.

Remember with 1919 Black Sox, that Commissioner said all those that bet on a game or sat together where betting on baseball occurs where it's not promptly notified to management shall be banned.

What about all the bonus money those players got? So they cheat win the World Series then get rewarded for it?

So you’re saying the Penn State scandal, where those players who were not involved in that child pedophile case but were just playing on the field, had all of their wins wiped off the books was ok, but punishing grown ass men for participating in a major scandal in the majors is wrong...you guys are disgusting! Every player on the astros knew what was happening...whether they actually used the cheats or not, they knew it was illegal. That alone should be cause for fines, wins vacated, and suspensions, if not lifetime bans.

No, they don't hand the Yankees or the Dodgers the 2017 title. I don't think anyone has been calling for that. But they definitely should have vacated the 2017 title. It should be wiped from the record books, the Astros should have to return the trophy, and neither the team nor any of the players should have it listed on their records. I think the biggest travesty is that no players are being punished, at least not officially(it did cost Beltran his new managerial job, but that didn't come from the league). MLB might have to do something about that, however. Word going around is that players from other teams are PISSED. At least one pitcher said he'd rather face a guy who's juicing than a guy who knows every pitch that's coming.

I agree with Don.
The fine is a joke. A $15-$20 million fine that works against the salary cap is a start. Investigating the players is essential. Hinch and Luhnow knew !! There is NOTHING that a team does that a manager doesn't know.

CHEATING!!! There will always be cheating in baseball until the MLB commissioner Brings the hammer down on players, managers, General managers and trainers. Cheaters should have there contracts terminated immediately. Players have to loss millions of dollars for them to understand they did something wrong. Terminate the players contract and have them apply for reentry to the league after 3 years. You have to hurt the players financial situation.

The Astros punishment will be losing when they can’t cheat anymore. Let’s see how Altuve and Bergman hit when they don’t know what’s coming. It’s gonna be hilarious. Everyone is gonna talk sooo much shit about them when their numbers fall. Lol

Everybody is crying over sign stealing. They still had to hit the ball (no easy task) and the fielders didnt field the ball for an out. Cheating (sign stealing) both teams still had to play fundamental baseball.

OK, MLB missed an opportunity to wedge the Players Union. MLB should have pitted the Players Union against it self.  Made Players Union defend the cheaters and poop on the honest players. Outcome: What good is the players union if you don't cheat?

sorry but what the astros did was a lot worse then what the patroits did and besides baseball is an american past time unlike football, its a lot different, baseball is something most males have played in their younger days, its a lot more perosnal than football, the fans will not let the astro's players live this down, the astro's players like bregman, altuve, correa, springer etc are FUCKED for a long long time. this is a LOT WORSE than the patriots hahaha, its not even the same.

Players need to get their asses fined heavily. and the Astros championship should be removed. Of course the MLB won't remove it because they hope several decades later this is all just forgotten about. The MLBPA if they had balls would make sure those cheating players get fined, if I was a player that wasn't part of the cheating Astros I'd be pissed.

There is no fix for this. What a disaster. The best solution I have is to reinstate Pete Rose and let him in the Hall where he belongs. Doesn't have anything to do with the Astros, but if these clowns were allowed to win a world series pulling this crap Pete deserves his due.

Some people are not getting how much hurt this has caused. Yes, you have the fans that put their complete trust in baseball so they can escape for 3 hours when their team takes the field, but how about the sports casters and writers that feel duped? How about the former players that are always wondering if they left it all on the field, and what could have been? What about the opponents like you guys mentioned? The hurt and subsequent damage is resonated throughout the baseball world, and not everyone is understanding to what magnitude that actually is manifesting itself as. I have spent the day in a daze, bouncing from despair to feeling hope in retribution. But everytime I jump on the net to see this for my own eyes, the despair comes back, because I don't know if baseball will ever mean the same thing to me and my family.

Good..They should be punished, banned and maybe even hanged.. They should be ashamed of themselves.. Literally took 2 potential WS appearances and titles from the Yankees and probably the Dodgers..This is a despicable thing to do in any sport.. If you have to cheat, you obviously do not have faith in your team..

I would give the team the death penalty for one year. You cheat you don't play a single game for a year. You do it again, you lose two years. MLB needs to take a stand on this crap. The NFL won't. But other leagues will see how much damage you can do to a team they will try to do the same. The New England Patriots have spied on teams twice and nothing came of it. The Patriots find ways to cheat each year. Any player that is still playing on other teams, get one year suspensions. They should strip the WS titles, and leave the championship vacated. All teams they played in the regular season all get added wins to their records. I am a Twins fan myself so really Houston and Boston are of no real significance to me.

The solution is simple. You vacate the title. That is a huge deterrent for future cheaters.
The cheating players should face at least half a year suspension.
I don’t care for the fine. That’s bullshit. If anything, take away $100 mil from their future cap which will affect their ability to sign players.
