Astros stole signs electronically in 2017 -- and the White Sox noticed in Pale Hose Talk Posted 6 hours ago · Report reply 1 hour ago, Sox Fan In Husker Land said: If MLB wants to show they actually take this cheating as a team seriously, they should take away Houston’s 2020-2023 1st through 5th round picks in the MLB draft and the pool $ that comes with it. They should also ban them from International Signings for 4 years. MLB needs to come down extremely hard on them, or you just encourage others to do the same. There is also precedent for forcing the removal of front office employees remember. MLB has been pretty strict recently. STL got off a little light, but obviously Copollela did not.
