MLB cheating scandal

Recommended Posts

Ortiz criticizes Fiers and calls him out; people act shocked. Ortiz is a proven and known cheater himself - of course he doesn't want teammates blowing whistles on cheating scandals.

"Astros outfielder Josh Reddick just told reporters he has received death threats via social media — and that in one case someone wished cancer upon his children. Reddick said he’s not the only one in the Astros’ clubhouse who had received death threats, either."

I don't know the full story here, but apparently Reddick/etc. where trolling people on twitter before and now this has all transpired.  

IMO This is really on Manfred's head... he's the one who said the punishment these players will get will be enough. He's almost begging fans to punish these guys.

It’s hard to find a line towards what isn’t right against the Astros... but whoever said that surely found and crossed it.

I propose a change.org petition be started requesting a million signatures calling for MLB to officially change the name and logo to this.

Just throwing out a hypothetical for those that want to answer it:

If the White Sox cheated in a similiar way as the Astros, what would you do with your fandom? Would you remain a White Sox Loyal fan? Switch teams? etc.

I'd be really pissed and still have no idea how to deal with it a month later. I wouldn't be defending them, but I'm not sure what I'd be saying.

I'm still to this day trying to figure out how to deal mentally with Pablo Ozuna.

Probably would attend 81 home games and burn an article of team attire in public until getting permanently banned or arrested.

Was not aware that some fantasy players have filed suit over the Red Sox et al cheating. Judicial comments indicate that Manfred has found some degree of Sox wrongdoing. I don't have details.

Now that you remind me this was supposed to be done weeks ago. Wonder what got in the way.

And the best part is that all of the penalties are being muted by us not playing in 2020.  What a joke.

Is that confirmed? 

As to what to do if it was the Sox. My only parallel was the Bulls signing Rodman. I never cheered for him. I would probably differentiate the guys who were ringleaders and not cheer for them. But after 50 years it's tough to stop being a fan.
