    Am so happy I remembered the ignore feature. Almost downright giddy! LOL

    It just occurred to me that yesterday I didn't get a single call from a telemarketer or scammer.

    my random thought of the day is that astros are fucked. they are caught, they are cheating like crazy. i cant believe its not a bigger story. they steal pitches with cameras and signal to the batter, fastball, or offspeed, either change or slider.

    should be a fun story to watch develop.

    Pitching for the Sox at Houston in 2017, Farquhar told The Athletic he heard "a banging from the dugout, almost like a bat hitting the bat rack every time a changeup signal got put down."

    Farquhar also said once the White Sox got wise and changed their signals, "the banging stopped."

    this man is not lying: the video of him hearing it is clear as day

    yeah they got em dead to rights and will be made an example of. If the STL hacking thing was multiple picks and millions of dollars (awarded to the astros coincidentally), this ones gonna be really ugly. Could mark the end of their run.

    baseball prospectus has a paywalled article that claims they isolated the bang noise so they pick it up with a computer and automate the pickup of that noise and they do the season and it is DAMNING

    the good thing is stealing signs isnt illegal. so a good team of lawyers should be able to tie this up in court for some time. New rules will follow.
