Bad that it was institutional, and the organization should've taken a much harder hit than the GM/skipper, but I honestly don't care about stealing signs too much. Been going on since the dawn of time.

stealing signs is part of the game & cool. using cameras and technology to help you is cheating.

I don’t see much difference. Every other aspect of the game is technology/algorithm assisted anymore. Maybe teams will start using digital jamming to fight back!

Should they take back the 1919 World Series win from the Reds because the White Sox let them win?

Integrity.

There’s no way in hell that organization should be able to display that trophy.
The punishment was nothing.
As it was said, every GM in the league would trade 5 mil and a couple of draft picks for a title.
It’s baseball, high draft picks pan out less often than other sports.
It would be devastating in the NBA, not MLB.
Plus, they are the last team to draft... weak.

He’s screwed.
A shame... he was on his way to becoming great.
He’s Probably screwed even harder after reading all the backlash on the lenient punishment for Houston.
He could get 5 years.

The punishment was a joke, but integrity is...uh...thin in the trenches. If you ain't cheatin you ain't tryin'!

Fine them a year's payroll or something and ban the owners for a year. Next infringement you start taking home games away. THEN you go to the beheadings.

Unfortunately $5 million was the max Manfried could hand out in terms of fine (CBA between the owners and players).

It's the league constitution apparently that determines the max fine. I did not know that
