  • Odd that the new use of sticky-tack leading to drastically increased spin rates starts being a thing the exact same year MLB changes the design of the baseballs to give them less wind resistance, and pitchers getting blisters becomes an epidemic. Almost like they all have something in common.

  • at a certain point you have to ask yourself how perfect do you want baseball to be? umpires get calls wrong all the time and doctoring the ball has been around over 100 years. how do you enforce that fairly.? how about making the 162 almost meaningless with all these playoffs. there's a lot to fix but in the end people will still be unsatisfied.

  • I said this when the Astro's scandal broke out, and I'll say it again: If you want cheating to be removed from baseball, you have to also take away all of the money. Cheating is incentivized when literally hundreds of millions of dollars are on the line. To say otherwise is to admit one's ignorance of reality.

    • They might be the ones who turn a blind eye to it the most often but it definitely is occurring in any sport you can think of at the same time. It feels like some of the leagues or organizations wait until they absolutely need to do something about it. Go read into doping in the olympics if you are interested and the systems in place to test for it. Plenty of ways to skirt the rules in more than just the MLB.

    • Okay that fine but how ask yourself how far you want to open that Pandora's Box. What the Astros did in 2017 was not new. In fact it wasn't even original because the Giants did the EXACT same thing in almost the EXACTLY same way in 1951. Phil Nekiro is in the hall of fame even after being caught with a file in his pocket. Do we go back and take everything away from teams and players who were using greenies so that they could play even though they were not legal. How about we take away all championships and records before 1947 because baseball decided to artificially rig the game and keep whole segments of people from playing and not have the best of the best in the game. Cheating has been part of the game for 160 so don't put this all on Manfred.

He even mentioned how people were using stuff but he would never do it cuz he's so ethical and then he had a terrible season and then the best season of his career. Not to mention his spin rate has increased by like 600 over the last two seasons
