watch this whole interview. Hinch is a lying SOB. Verducci is on the PR trail on behalf of Astros on all the MLB shows saying he 100% believes Hinch didn't know, and that they clearly didn't use buzzers. lost a lot of respect for Verducci lately.

Losing Verdugo 2 months before his breakout season stings.
For one year with Mookie?
Fack.
He was my favorite player last year... seriously drymounting incredible for his age.
A textbook on how to have consistent successful at bats.
Boston should think about batting him 1 or 2 in the lineup... a full count is pretty much automatic, he doesn’t chase, a contact hitter that occasionally swings for power at the right time.
Sad to see him go.

Scumbag Astros! Even the owner is incapable of remorse and offering up an apology (so now I see where the players get it from). It’s coming from the top down. And I don’t buy for one second he didn’t know what was going on. His quote from yesterday, “I don’t think it (the cheating scandal) had any impact on us winning. We won and now we need to move on.” Give me a freaking break!

I’ve heard a bunch are going down to Anaheim when they play the Angels to let their feelings known.

And now Severino needs TJ surgery and is gonna miss the entire season. Wow! Good thing they got Cole but now they lose their #2 starter (not to mention Paxton's out until May/June also).

It is just so surprising that the Astros players thought it was a good idea and that they thought they would get away with it. Rule number one in conspiracies is that the fewer people that are in on it the less chance you have of being caught. Way too many people were involved.

Now there is some humor in the idea of stealing a sign indicating the pitcher is going to plunk the batter.

UNBELIEVABLE again from Rob Manfred dealing with the Red Sox scandal. Suspends the video monitor operator and they lose a second round pick and THAT'S IT! He has just green lit the entire league to continue to engage in this type of behavior due to his ineffective punishments because the players have nothing to lose and everything to gain. They will not be punished. Lose of draft picks, GM/coach gets fired? Fine, but the players are the ones getting off scot-free.

The one year the Reds spend money and put a team together, this fudge happens
