Does this guy have me on ignore or something?
The other point is that human "eavesdropping" is predictable, and a comparatively easy risk to mitigate as long as you take some common-sense precautions. You know what other people can do, so you protect yourself. Guys grew up paying ball, and making sure other people couldn't hear talking or see signals. But technology is always advancing, so the risks become greater, and can get to the point where you have no idea what is safe, and what isn't. Satellites, drones, James Bond-ish mini cameras and microphones....I feel like many of your issues were addressed in my initial post because not once did I say it was wrong just because there’s a rule against it.
As I said, their use of cameras is most similar to having a mic or camera in an opposing team’s huddle during a basketball or football game.
What they were doing is not similar to scouting at all.
If teams knew that other teams were using cameras to steal signs, they would use more complex signs. You seem to think they should always be doing that, but the reality is that coaches don’t disguise their play calls in huddles, because nobody is watching or listening then without the use of illegal devices.
Interesting to see that discussion about vacating games is getting serious legs.I'll answer that question very simply: yes, yes it is.
Now, as to what punishment. Right now it looks like only FO and managers/coaches are being handed punishments, as well as teams via draft picks being taken away. Players themselves are being left out of any punishment. The commissioner did warn teams a few years ago, even citing the removal of draft picks as possible punishment. I think, much like PEDS, the punishment will evolve, becoming more strict and most likely adding players as ones that can and will suffer punishment. I also think this scandal will hit the breaks on this happening again, or at least any time soon.
He was god awful in 2017 before he faced the Astros. Which was the last time he pitched in the majors
