    ^^ Get over it big boy. That's a world of difference from electronically stealing signs. In fact, one can argue that it's no less deceptive to the umpire than framing pitches that are out of the strike zone to make them look like strikes.

    Let's hope this season has a lot less whining and sulking.

    I didn't know there is an acceptable form of cheating.

    Nice try. Players have made similar decoying moves for generations. It's no different than an outfielder diving for a ball and making his trap look like a catch and getting away with it. Have you not gotten over those, either?

    It's certainly not in the same league as an entire team creating a system of stealing signs for an entire season through blatant violations of well-established rules barring electronic devices.

    But, you are certainly entitled to wallow in your self-imposed misery of Jeter's decoy for as many years as you wish.

    September 21st-24 should be a series to pay attention to, especially after yesterday's lame ass apology.

    Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) Tweeted:
    Houston manager Dusty Baker: MLB needs to step in to stop "premeditated" targeting of Astros hitters with pitches from opponents angry at their cheating.

    News story at ESPN: https://t.co/JNJAwXtRJW https://twitter.com/JeffPassan/statu...103949312?s=20

    Woah! So, in fact, the Astros are suddenly the (potential) victims in all of this dismal business...

    Seriously, won't they ever learn anything? - what a wretched club they have become.

    I suspect it's more about being revealed as a wretched club and not becoming one. Wait until the season starts. It's going to be a rough year. The shirts are already out:

    They need to return their rings and be done with it. Take the damn World Series title away from them and that's it.

    They will never take the WS away, primarily because they can’t quantify impact.

    I think had they penalized the payers via suspensions and/or fines, this would have gone away faster.
