Shame on you! Jim Rome, Dan Patrick, Rich Eisen, SAS, Max Kellerman. You call yourself broadcast journalists. In the lexicon of SAS: you ain't. The biggest scandal in MLB in this generation. And you are not willing or able to get to the bottom of it? There is video of Altuve as he's running the bases saying, "...I'm wearing a piece... Come on you journalists, one of you have the guts or the energy to ask the man what he was talking about. You won't likely do it, because all of you are just PR guys for major league sports.

They keep saying they came down hard, they should have ripped the fucking banner down that was the most significant thing they could have done, the money didn’t matter, as well as Hinch and Luhnao should be banned. Stop saying 5 MILLION DOLLARS they have BILLIONS nobody cares about the money, it’s a black eye for baseball. Manfred blew it on this. The picks were a good addition. Year suspension is nothing Hinch and Cora will be back and that’s fucking bullshit.

I think Hinch should be suspended indefinitely from baseball.
Check that.
I think Hinch should be banned from baseball.
I think the players should be fined 25 games. Check that.
50 games.
They should lose first round picks til 2023.
Check that.
2025.
I think Alex Cora should be suspended for 5 years.
Check that.
7 years.
Check that.
Banned for life.
Chris Everett should be named the Red Sox manager.
Check that.
Chrissy Everett.

Cora is now part of the RAT family. What a cheat. Astros should have suspended operations for one year
That is appropriate punishment. It would certainly get peoples attention. Cant believe Yanks were not involved. Who is the EVIL EMPIRE now?

They didn't come down hard on them. They should strip the rings and throw in a two year playoff ban as well

As a diehard Yankees fan and baseball fan major league baseball should vacate the 2017 Astros World Series title away. And also that could happen in our World Series if not screwed up game seven in the ALCS

Check out Altuve's stats in 2013 and 2017 - almost identical in number of at-bats and games played. That's where "identical" stops. I always wondered by he ended up (his front foot) about 2 inches off the plate on change-up. He knew the pitch and was literally launching himself into the pitch. How much more money has he made by knowing the pitch? This is worse than steroids. Even if you get bigger and stronger from PEDs, you still have to hit the ball. If you know the pitch coming, you can hit it. What's the key to hitting - timing. What's the key to pitching - throwing off the batter's timing. If you can't throw off their timing, they will hit you. Sad, sad. NO guts from our commish. I thought NFL commish was soft. This is weak. Again, this is such a flagrant foul against the game. AJ and the JL will be back with big salaries in 2 years - just watch.

The high level of disgrace will grow for years. Astros should disband. Complete embarrassment!

Cheated to win championship but trophy not taken away from them? I'd think they should lose that trophy. Suspensions don't mean shit if not applied to all participants in incident.
Michael Chidiac
Michael Chidiac - 7 months ago
This is not a major punishment that affected salaries, careers, championships, etc. This is a joke. Rose was banned for life. This was not just picking signs. This was out and out cheating. Period. It will be interesting to see how "great" Altuve and Begman really are now that the bar has been balanced. Unreal.

Instead of banning....how about all the players on the 2017 roster have to remain on the Astros for the next 20 years and salary cap those cheaters at $35k/season.

You have to take away the World Series Title and the trophy. Otherwise, it doesn't discourage the cheating.

@connie rahim -good idea- 2 teams out- death penalty for Astros and Red Sox and replace them with new teams in other cities

Astros keep the chip and will re-hire Hinch is 2021. MLB is telling all that cheating is fine so long as you don't get caught. Weak as fuck.

The Astros team - including PLAYERS - cheated to win a World Series.
The so called “massive punishment” is $5mill, two non-player suspensions, 4 draft picks (useless anyways.) What a joke. In comparison: Pete Rose lifetime ban just for wagering. NCAA vacates wins and championships for cheaters in basketball and football. What a joke.
Who wouldn’t trade $5mill and some pics for a World Series.
Rome has obviously become an MLB shill.

Cheating is cheating no matter how you want to define it. Regardless of Hinch's supposed reputation, he was complicit as much as anyone.
