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
Hector Rodriguez

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

The Astros are the Lance Armstrong of MLB. No wait, Armstrong had his awards taken back. The Astros are the Mexcian drug cartel of MLB

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!
Keith Perdue
Keith Perdue - 10 days ago
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 - 10 days 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.

I agree. The Dodgers should get those draft picks, and the ones Boston will probably lose too.

@David M. Misrahi Trash reply to me from a trash person who prob has a trash team. They got far 2019 without any cheating and will 2020. All teams do it so piss off loser. Lmao
David M. Misrahi
David M. Misrahi - 10 days ago
The truth is the trashtros cheated their way to the top. Choking is irrelevant when the playing field isn't balanced. Trash organization, trash city, trash fans and now everyone knows it.

Todd Knouse

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.

Marcus Guzman ... I estimate that will happen in approximately 81 games during the regular season.
Marcus Guzman
Marcus Guzman - 10 days ago
They will have the legacy of being cheaters when ever these guy's walk up to the plate they will be booed for the rest of their careers and after that their legacy will be tarnished...

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

@VMan29397 - You do know that they are just a spin off team of the Cincinnati Reds? So, they aren't that historic!

@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.
C Pal

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.
Bob Heck

@Marcus Guzman but who can forget anyway? The players are deeply shamed. That's what counts.
