  1. If you want integrity and a more level playing field for sports gambling, then get rid of the umpire at home plate and use automated strike/ball detectors.

  2. This is the softest reporting on the scandal. No one will ever think they aren't cheating anymore. I still don't know whether we should call them the "Houston Asterisks" or the "Houston Patriots". As a Nationals fan, if we hadn't somehow overcome the asstros cheating to win the World Series, I would be just as livid as the Dodger and Yankee fans. They should just erase the franchise and start a new one with new owners in Vegas.

  3. Boston and Houston did it against the Yankees. Just goes to show that you can’t beat them unless you steal signs. Yankees 2020 World Series champs!!

  4. Bregman, Altuve, Springer, Correa, Guriel, all of the Astros, we know you are cheaters, all of you. You guys are a fraud. You have shamed your team, your city and all of baseball. How dare you ever show your face in any stadium. You don't even have the integrity to return what you stole. You are thieves and cowards. Kids should burn your jerseys.

  5. I doubt very much that in 2017 MLB teams caught cheating would be given just a slap on the wrist ! That's just more fake news !
    Try to dodge the main scandal to include the My Yankees without any videos provided to see and listen ! The Press is complies to the cheaters in question . So it's been going on for decades??? So why didn't the people that knew step up to stop it ? Now they want to make it look like as it was part of baseball ????

  6. The H stands for hated by Many lots of people hate the Astros because they are just that good N the haters are trying to destroyed the team by framing AJ Hinch & Jeff. The Nationals beat the Astros fair N Square in 2019WS the Astros did not cheat in 2019WS nor did they in 2017WS. The Astros beat the Yankees&Dodgers&Boston fair N square in 2017WS they wanted to win for the city after Harvey struck Houston.

  7. Cheaters getting the karma they deserve . Now I’m not going to comment whether their title should be vacated. But. Asterisk.

  8. that last guy is a moron……the Yankees were not implicated. the Yankees were the ones who told on the Red Sox for using Apple watches!! where did this guy get his journalism degree from

  9. I AM A BIG RED SOX FAN,HOWEVER I HAVE TO AGREE THAT THE ASTROS TITLE SHOULD BE REVOKED. ALSO,THE YANKEES SHOULD OF WON. I WANT THE YANKEES TO DESTROY THE ASTROS THIS YEAR AND WISH THE YANKEES COULD WIN THE WORLD SERIES. ALL THE ASTROS PLAYERS SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES. ALSO, I AM VERY UPSET THE RED SOX CHEATED ALSO. HOPE THE YANKEES DESTROY THE RED SOX ALSO.
    GOOOOOOOO YANKEESSSSSSSE!!!!!

  10. All for discussing thus and giving the Astros their due punishment for stealing signs using electronics. BUT report the story correctly. Thus was love feed from the centerfield network camera, not some camera installed by the Astros. It’s wasn’t sent to the dugout monitor in real time, and decoded by players to bang a trash can. It’s was sent to their relay room, and once they decoded the signs it was the. Shared via the dugout relay phone amd the trash can was banged. All ridiculous- but even the local news can’t read a 9 page report from thenMLB commish amd get it reported correctly. Come on

  11. Could you imagine how angry these people would be if they were the ones cheated out of a WS? I’m sure they wouldn’t be happy about people saying “everybody does it” when there is a ton of evidence out there and it all just coincidentally points to one team. That one team then had players who went to a couple other organization where they implemented a similar system. But it all stems back to one team, the 2017 Astros.

  12. So tell me how in a packed stadium with fans going crazy, that a hitter is going to hear someone hitting a trash can?

  13. If a player wore a device that provided pitch information then take away their title. It it was purely ‘on field signage stealing’ with physical signals then I’m cool with it. A level playing field is paramount.

  14. Who's ever involved in this scandal should be banned from baseball for life. cheating is cheating. ban them all!

  15. Houston Astros are a disgrace to the mlb. The title should be stripped. Then one of your coaches go to Boston and continues his cheating ways. Strip Astros 2017, strip Red Sox 2018.

  16. It's absolutely pathetic at these baseball players get paid an astronomical amount of money and they still cheat. They do not deserve a title and if not teaching the new generation of baseball players anything

  17. I don't see a problem using technology to steal signs. It's just like a football team watching game film of an opposing team.

  18. How come Verlander is so quiet ?? He had lots to say about PED's in the sport. Altuve as well. a bunch of Big Mouths are suddenly quiet..

  19. Astros did not get "hammered" for this. They got off the hook lightly.

    What needs to happen is the WS trophy, MVP awards, and WS rings need to taken away. Players need to be suspended or banned and fined.

  20. Take the titles away just like when
    Athletes were found to have use enhancing drugs to win competitions and became champions , take all of the titles away, they should not be allowed to profit from “steeling “ signs
    Shame on them .

  21. Remember when the story was surrounding spin rate on their pitches; how all these Astros pitchers were seeing incredible increases on the spin rate of their sliders and curves that were allowing their pitches to be even more biting and effective? People were questioning if they were somehow cheating to that extent, but this!? This takes it to a level that just disgusts me. I believe they should be stripped and apparently Cora in Boston was employing the same tactic I heard? If that is correct then Boston should be stripped as well. Every player that had knowledge should also be punished. This was systemic cheating by an entire organization. It trumps individual players using steroids or corked bats!!

  22. This is beyond sign stealing. It’s flat out ruining the integrity of the game and harsh punishment is required. 1919 blacksox

  23. this video is so spun… this news chan should be ashamed of itself. astros are a bunch of cheaters. spin it as a whole baseball issue all you want. yanks got cheated out of back to back world series astros and redsox. to hell with the mlb.. fix your shit or this life long fan is done with you.

  24. Houston Astro players will need to go through a metal detector before each at bat.
    First Astro home game this season free buzzers for all fans.

  25. Funny how other teams were trying to get involved and sue the Astros and now they’re investigating them and coming to be they’re guilty lol

  26. There was no WS winner in 2017. It doesn’t take a genius to see how wrong this is. And now buzzers? Those players should be banned for life

  27. They should take away the World Series trophy from the scumbag cheating astros.Shit if it was not for cheating they would of never one.Oh well their championship will always have a asterisk next to it.

  28. If only Ford Frick could disciine the 1951 and 1954 New York baseball Giants the same way. Baseball is so full of hypocrites.

  29. Strip their title from them, censure the owner ,fire all involved including players, lifetime bans….. the same should be done to the cheatriots.

  30. Easy solution; The moment the man in blue says "Play Ball!", monitors in the dugout, bullpen and clubhouse are blacked out for the duration of the game.
