According to an interview with manfred he promised the players immunity if they participated in the investigation. Thus they arent being punished at all.

But 100% they should have the title taken away if thats the case. They cheated their way to a world series championship. They deserve that to be taken away
What’s the point of investigating if their won’t be a punishment to those you’re investigating?

People are going to be very disappointing when the Astros are treated just like any other team by opposing players outside of ~3 instances

I think you're right, but that's actually a smart move on the players.

Why give the Astros another competitive advantage by gifting them baserunners throughout the season with intentional HBP?

Outside of a move by the MLBPA, I don't see what can be done further. Manfred has already handed down his punishment, and while I see it as just a little more than a slap on the wrist, I doubt he adds more on.

So if it comes out Altuve and company lied about the buzzers, then they didn’t actually fulfill their end of the bargain which granted them immunity

truthfully if they lied during investigation I really don’t think any mercy should be shown on them. Multi year bans and id be ok if they never came back. This was a serious investigation for a huge scandal. In exchange for immunity for the cheating you actively participated in you’ll tell the whole truth. If it comes out later that you lied during an investigation I really don’t see what place you have in the MLB candidly
