    Sports Media discussion

    I don't wish to discuss further. I'm going to delete my post, I ask if you guys will do so as well. Not worth it.

    What would you have done ...

    Yeah. Imagine you're an engineer working for a chemical company that's dumping toxins into the Mississippi or something like that. You go to the CEO and ask him to stop, you're told to FO. Are you going to risk your career to narc on them? More serious situation. (this actually happened with 3M btw, but nobody stepped forward until the EPA busted them)

    Offseason Targets

    I think Odorizzi and Gausman are their targets. I heard they were going to be interested in Odorizzi had he hit the market last year.

    This is such a White Sox thing to do. My god. TLR isn't 80 yet, he's 76. Still old.

    AJ Hinch: does it matter to you that he cheated?

    Pete Rose and Barry Bonds et al. are being excluded because they violated the integrity of the game. How is this any different? If you want to say it's a HOF issue only...that's fine, but I expect consistency across baseball when it comes to integrity of the sport issues. Either you want to protect the integrity of the game or you don't. Just don't lie to the fans about it. Pete Rose is banned from baseball. How is cheating any different from gambling? It's 6 of one, half dozen of the other.

    AJ Hinch: does it matter to you that he cheated?

    The Astros literally hacked the game with computers. They used AI in order to decode signs and had an intricate relaying system to the dugout that involved banging a trashcan a certain number of times in order to gain a competitive advantage. This was way worse than what Coppoella did with the Braves, and he got a lifetime ban. They needed to bring the hammer down on the Astros to make sure it never happens again. What's to stop other teams from doing it and trying harder to conceal it?

    AJ Hinch: does it matter to you that he cheated?

    I couldn't care less really what they do as long as they're consistent. Either you let Rose, Bonds, Jackson et al. in the HOF or you permawhack guys, including everyone involved with the 2017-18 Astros at the MLB level, make the owner of the Astros sell the team, etc. There is no middleground. You can't take the moral high ground on Rose/Bonds and then not treat the Astros accordingly.

    AJ Hinch: does it matter to you that he cheated?

    Shady Brady and Bill Belicheat I despise both Brady and Belichick.....and I don't think they're legit. In fact both should have been banned from the sport long ago. The "took a OTC supplement and didn't do my homework" excuse for testing positive for roids is more believable than any excuse Hinch and Cora have. This is a huge scandal. Its Black Sox level shit. If they're not going to lay down the hammer on these groups, then let Pete Rose, Bonds et al in the HOF, posthumously elect 1919 White Sox to the HOF and allow gambling, because they're lying about caring about the integrity of the game. I'm ok giving people a second chance, but if baseball has the audacity to keep players like Pete Rose and Barry Bonds out of the HOF, and don't permawhack these guys AND the players involved, then they need to drop the facade and quit pretending they actually care about the integrity of the game. Either you care about the integrity of the game or you don't.
