    Astros lies have reached all time levels of pathetic.

    Correa, acting as Altuves *spokesperson*:

    Correa told Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic that Altuve did not want his jersey ripped off in celebration because Altuve had “an unfinished tattoo on his collarbone that honestly looked terrible.” Naturally, fans flocked to social media to see if they could find any photos of Altuve shirtless that would confirm or deny what Correa said. Then on Monday, Altuve walked around bare-chested in front of a group of reporters in the clubhouse. There was, indeed, a tattoo on his left collarbone.
    The tattoo says “Melanie,” which is Altuve’s three-year-old daughter’s name, and has a heart. We still don’t know when Altuve got the tattoo or why it would have looked horrible at one point, but it seems like he was intentionally flashing the ink to reporters.

    Rumors flew last month that Altuve did not want his jersey torn off because he was hiding an electronic buzzer that some Astros players wore to help them steal signs.
    Those who are fully invested in this investigation pointed out that Altuve shared a photo on Instagram last July that showed him without a shirt on. That would have been a few months before the ALCS, and he did not have a tattoo at the time. The photo was captioned “Off Day,” and the Astros were off on July 29.

    As expected, we really don’t have any answers. Altuve has a tattoo now. There’s no way of knowing when he got it, what it looked like unfinished, or if he was actually embarrassed to show it off. What we do know is that fans aren’t the only ones mocking the tattoo excuse.

    Looks like the Astros' pitchers cheat too:

    Feels like opposing pitchers have every intention of exacting the punishment that Manfred was too big a pussy to deliver. Altuve’s career ending with a fastball to the dome would be appropriate tbh.

    Btw, read up on the CBA and why Manfred couldn’t punish the players.

    Did you see the he was saying at the "apology" press conference? The guy is clearly a Jerruh/Dolan type. Now that they can't cheat anymore, they won't be relevant for much longer.

    The least Manfred could do is take that so-called "piece of metal" away from the Astros since they didn't win it legitimately. Especially since players around the league have called bull on the idea that they stopped cheating after that season.

    The one good thing Manfred has done is vocally support baseball returning to Montreal (unlike that asshole Selig, who helped run the Expos out of town). On literally every other issue, including this Astros scandal, he makes Gary Bettman look competent by comparison.

    No he’s neither one because he actually puts a winning product on the field

    never would have happened. Then you would have to go back to every championship and possibly confiscate it for someone who was cheating

    And Mono wants to talk about Manfred being soft. Yet Goodell ing destroys the videotapes the 1st out of three times they have been caught cheating. Nobody was going to confiscate

    Is your defense really “Manfred maybe did slightly better than the worst commissioner in American sports history”?

    Manfred confiscates it, then you have everyone snitching on each and every team that won. It would have been a nightmare. Like John Smoltz said three or four days ago, there are more teams who do this. It also would have been a war with MLBPA

    Eric Gagne wrote that book that 80% of his Dodger teammates were on roids. They get accused two different times by two teams of electronic sign stealing. That 2000 Yankee squad was juiced to high . After a while nobody cares anymore.

    And I don’t give a . What are you gonna do about it? Halfway support the Rangers when they inevitably fade into irrelevance again by the all star break?

    The sign stealing thing is way overblown. All teams have done some form of this over the years to try to get a compe ive advantage. Bottom line: You still have to hit the ball! It's unfortunate that players are resorting to threats over it and every player who ever got torched by the Astros is coming out of the woodwork crying foul. They could have changed their signs. What MLB should do from here forward is outlaw it and officially state that teams caught doing this will forfeit all games that season and players involved will be suspended 50 games.

    Camera use is the difference maker

    It's not overblown, the rules are pletty clear. Stealing signs using your own wits is okay. Using technology to systematically steal signs, like the Astros did, is blatant cheating. Anyone in the big leagues would look good if they knew exactly which pitch was coming all the time.
