    Your proposal would slow the game down opposed to what they are trying to do: speed the game up.
    Nooo.
    It's already been test run.
    Instantaneous ball/strike calls.

    But Mike Fiers is a piece of work though. He surely didn’t say when he received his ring

    I think it is the other team's job to make sure your signs aren't being picked up. This is fine by me.

    people crying about stripping Altuve of his 2017 MVP. Most are Yankees fans.

    Astros are the Patriots of the MLB, except with less morals and fewer rings.

    That's a lot for a closer.

    Technology though, man. If a team is caught there should be serious consequences. I don't think MLB has the balls, tbh.

    Can't be using cameras and TVs. That is premeditated and ins itional. Watch and steal. If your smart you get the advantage. Camera and tv-nope that aint right.

    I think analysts overrate the effectiveness of sign stealing via technology. To pull this off seamlessly, you have to have the field camera transmit the footage to the tablet to a coach or player in the bullpen/dugout, and then that coach or player has to relay the information to the batter during the at bat, forcing the batter to look to his left or right for a few seconds. I think doing that would throw off your rhythm at the plate. Sure, the batter can step out in order to process the information, but then he'll be likely getting a different pitch when he steps back in.

    ^Just watched the Jomboy vid. Pretty clever to signal which pitch is coming through sound. But I still think it'd throw off your rhythm and timing as a hitter to try and stay aware of that signal while also trying to concentrate on hitting 95+ and wicked off-speed . Just too much mul asking for an event that has a .350ms window.

    My 10th grade year I had made varsity cause of my pitching but when not pitching I did not play much. Coach had me coach first. He would steal pitches by looking into the pitchers glove to see the grip. Didnít work all the time but when it did he would signal to me and I yelled the code word for curve or fastball as the pitcher went into the windup. My goal was to make it sound like regular chatter.
    It worked. You be surprised how right handed high school pitchers show the grip to the third base coach.
    In the windup I held the ball in my hand in the glove and made sure no one could see.
    In the stretch I held the ball apart from the glove and changed my grip as my hands came together and no one could tell if I changed my grip or not.

    I also tried to make all my pitches look the same coming out my hand with the same form and release point. By doing this it really helped. Especially my change up cause it came out of hand looking like a fastball.
    My curveball was my weapon of death. Oh the glory days.

    The Astros are ed. They're going to be watched like a hawk in 2020.

    Wouldn't be surprised if they get some kind of punishment before then either. As more players and pitchers come forward with more details, the worst they look.
