People still referencing perhaps the biggest scandal in the history of baseball that was uncovered in the off-season before the upcoming season is "harassing the Astros"?  lol

No, not at all. I've detailed what harassment entails in this thread. Sorry you choose to ignore it.

You literally brought up harassment and then said "What about the thread title?"  in the next sentence, same paragraph..

You really gonna blame me for assuming that's the type of harassment you meant?

why don't you just fucking ask?

I wasn't saying that harassment. He said to get over it. Are the others in the thread over it? clearly not because the thread title even mentions the Astros.

But I'm supposed to get over it and just take it.

Nah.

If this ire we were aimed at multiple teams involved we wouldn't be having this problem.

Instead we have Dodgers and Yankees fans thinking their teams are above cheating. :sabu

You can say,"we don't have official ruling on the red sox cheating" but that didn't stop you from calling REVOKE THE ASTROS WORLD SERIES WIN  for MONTHS before the official case ruling in January.

If this were really about cheating you'd also shit on the Sox. But you don't.

You don't because you know that the Astros will still be contenders. You're butt hurt and you can't admit that your teams are fucking LOSERS and you're drowning in your cum flavored tears. Drown in that shit.

lol, several players came out and accused the Astros of cheating, putting their name on it, something that has never been seen before in baseball. As far as we know it was the most elaborate cheating scheme in the history of the sport.

The Astros cheated.

Does not make harassment of the Astros and Astros fans okay.

Also, multiple people have also implicated that this problem goes beyond the Astros.

https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2871359-logan-morrison-so-many-mlb-teams-cheat-using-video-names-yankees-dodgers

My problem is the uniform treatment, calling Astros fans Nazi's, saying the city of Houston deserves another flood.

Thanks for straw manning every thing I have said. Keep piling on if it makes you feel better.

"I know from first hand accounts that the Yankees, Dodgers, Astros, and Red Sox all have used film to pick signs," he wrote, per NJ Advance Media's Brendan Kuty. "Just want you guys to know the truth. I personally think it's a tool in a tool belt to pick signs, but if we are going to be punishing people for it. Don't half ass it."

Quote
"As far back as 2015, the Yankees used the video replay room to learn other teams' sign sequences, multiple sources told The Athletic. Other teams likely were doing the same. Sources said the Red Sox began doing it no later than 2016.



Let's keep shitting on the Stros and Stros fans. Let's keep pretending it was only the Astros. Let's see what happens next. Oh, but you probably need another Mike Friars to go rat. That's the devil in this entire story: butthurt Yankees and Dodgers fans who really shouldn't be throwing stones through glass houses.

I never said anything like that, and I'm sure the guy wasn't serious anyway. I certainly don't condone statements like that.

I'm not sure you're understanding what it feels like to have watched your team give up two 4 run leads in the same game, a game which if your team had won they'd have ended up the champions, to have watched your star pitcher, who already (and up to that point somewhat unfairly) had a reputation for postseason choking in spite of dominating the regular season like no other pitcher in a decade, give up a tying grand slam and then load the bases for another tying grand slam a couple innings later, and then two years later you find out that the team that did that to you was sign-stealing on those very pitches.

Forget about us fans. Imagine how Kershaw and Darvish feel.

And I'm not sure you know what it feels like watch your team go from 100 loss seasons, have a record 1 in a million or something stat flood that destroyed homes of people you grew up with, fucked your neighborhood, destroyed your city. Then you win your only world series that year and what it means to you. And then you got some butt hurt jackal shitting your team, your fellow fans, going into conspiracy theories, harassing players social media, harassing REPORTERS social media, brigading fans private spaces while they get over their disappointment while turning away a blind eye to ANY alternative viewpoint while casting every single Astros player as a villain. Talking about buzzers without one substantiated claim, and saying the Astros deserve their world series trophy vacated.

Meanwhile other fans have ZERO empathy towards your situation and just clown you.

Nah. Fuck you and fuck every team not the Astros. I hope the Astros gang fuck all of your teams and every Stros fan feels similar.

shut up ho

The Braves got caught running an international talent pool signing scam and got TANGIBLY HARSHER PENALTIES including a lifetime ban for our GM and actual forfeiture of signees, then I'm sure everyone and their mother talked shit about us and I didn't care. We won the division next year.

The main difference is OUR PLAYERS DIDN'T ACTIVELY CHEAT TO FUCK UP GAMES. At the end of the day, you can't change that fact, and your players didn't get any fucking penalties for it.

I didn't run my fucking mouth when the Braves got popped. Shut yours, take your L.

The only reason this is an issue is that Manfred botched the punishment.

Anger is an emotion fueled by unfairness. Could not punish the players? Strip the title.

But no players were punished. They got immunity. And now are getting protected from frontier justice. It's a joke. That's why all these opposing players are angry.

Manfred really sucks.  He's a classic out of touch suit. His mealy mouthed interviewed was the weakest shit I've seen from any Commish, including that loser Selig and perennial clown Godell.

Want to apologize for my posts here. I mistakenly treated you all like you were redditors and just said really bad, stupid stuff.

I know the Astros are cheaters. I'm very much disappointed in them. They ruined the one championship we have. They're so good that the cheating was pointless and they found that the cheating barely changed results anyways. Unfortunately I take a lot of the attacks personally despite knowing that and after months of it I lashed out in a very bad way.

I just want baseball to come back.

He answers lots of general data science question and some baseball stuff but obviously won't talk about anything that would hurt his work situation. He also does samples of the kinds of work he does on things like Rocket League, Overwatch League or Beer.

Fuck them. They cheated. Get ready for a rough season.

And if any other teams cheated they should face the same consequences. Fuck them all. Even if my beloved Mariners did it, which would be sad cause we're bad at everything and it didn't help.  :lol

Someone needs to make a skit where they show the Astros playing baseball in August and every player is coming to the plate in full body armor. There's a plastic bin next to the first base coach where they remove it and place it into if they get on base.

I donated all of my Astros stuff to charity.

I can't cheer for them anymore and have barely paid attention to their moves despite the season coming up. I love baseball too much and I can't watch the team anymore. I see the players entirely differently and I can't stand the front office.

I followed the Astros seriously starting in college, when they were absolute dog shit and had the nickname of the Lastros. I still loved and followed the team despite that, so the 2017 win after literally a decade of cheering the team was one of my most cherished moments in my life, especially after the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. I went to my first Astros game when I was a wee, little kid. Baseball was the first sport I played and the sport my dad taught me. I cherish the sport too much to continue to the root for this team and I treat our WS win with a giant asterisk. Its come to a point where I have to choose: the Astros or baseball. I've chosen baseball. It is no longer my team for the foreseeable future.

This may seem drastic but it's what I have to do to continue loving the game.

I'm moving to NY and the Mets were already my second team and I followed them casually since they're the Astros' sister team and are in another league. Since their stadium will be 20 minutes away from me I've decided to change teams.

I know this is sacrilege but in this case it's what I have to do to continue enjoying baseball.

Sorry for outbursts earlier in the thread, it was me coming to terms with massive heart break.
