    You know why the punishment isnt as harsh as it could be? Its because ALL TEAMS CHEAT! Just because they dont get caught, or it doesnt make the news it doesnt mean it doesnt happen off camera. Theres alot that happens within the league that doesnt get made public. If they made all cheating scandels public, MLB would become a joke. They try to keep alot of things under wraps. If Astros got over punished, it would be unfair to the rest of the teams who have gotten less punishment. This was obviously to the extreme and had to have more severe reprecussions...obviously there are some thing that are to big to keep quiet.

              Hinch was only successful because he was cheating.

                Hinch should never manage another mlb game again. No one should hire him. I know I wouldnt want him managing my team. What a distraction

                  Fiers really let the cat out of the bag,because the fall out is gonna be enormous,and everybody is gonna find out that the redsox,Yankees and other teams have been doing the same now that we see that Cora,and Beltran are out of jobs...fiers you fucked up because now the same punishment will have to be assessed to all the other teams....Fiers himself is a cheater used pine tar for his no hitter.. teams have been doing this.

                        If I were an Astros fan, I’d be done with them. At least until every current player were gone. What an embarrassment they all are to the purity of the game. Every last one of them. I’m glad the Yankees are going to own you for years to come, and I’m an NL guy.

                              Everybody is doing it. The battle cry of every wimp Of every Cheater. Once KC cleaned their clocks in 2015 they figure a way to not get beat again
                              Cora got them a title. Then he left and got Boston a title. Yeah. Everyone is doing it

A CLEAR MESSAGE SHOULD BE SENT TO ANYONE WHO CHEATS WILL BE BANNED FOR LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can say all you want about Pete Rose betting on baseball, or betting on his team, but if you know PR, I CANNOT believe he would EVER beat against his team or fix a game, but still he go a lifetime ban!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                                  Supposedly all of the cheating was only done at home. Look at what he Astros did on the road, I think their performance on road should remove the idea that they stole the World Series. In 4 games in LA the Dodgers got 22 hits the Astros got 28. In 3 games in Houston the Dodgers got 25 hits the Astros got 28. Apparently all of the effort put in to stealing signs was wasted.

Can't give to Dodgers because Yankees got cheated both in 17 and 18 of being in the series so just completely take them off. Give the Dodgers the astros 1st, 2nd, and 4th. Also give them the red sox 3rd. Give the Yankees the red Sox 1st 2nd and 4th. Give them the astros 3rd. Do a pick swap. Yankees and dodgers swap picks they got from astros and redsox next year. Dodgers and yankees get picks because of all the fans let down by this scandal. In my opinion they need to go harder on them. That is what I would have done.

All teams may try to steal signs during the game when they are on the field or from the dugout. That’s fine and been going on for years. What the Astros did was unique and scandalous.

Big deal they got draft picks taken away. Draft picks dont affect the team until 3-5 years later. You telling me NO PLAYERS got suspended? How is this any different from PEDs? Some players benefited from this cheating via increasing their batting average thus better free agent contracts. Some people last jobs cuz these douchebags. Some hopeful minor leaguers who appeared at major league level only to get trashed by Astros had their dream and life ruined. AND u tell me no players got suspended? total BS

                                                                                    I hope all MLB team boycott games agasint Astros so that Manfred can get his head out of his a.

                                                                                      • Chavis Greenard

                                                                                        1) Astros are disbanded.

                                                                                        2) All players part of this run, all executives, coaches, and anyone else tied to this get lifetime bans.

                                                                                        3) Any championships and accolades in their history up to now be permanently erased.

                                                                                        Too harsh?

                                                                                        • James Vincent

                                                                                          • Eric Matterson

                                                                                            • Jonathon Miller

                                                                                              • Sahmmanthae Wongg
