    But it's very simple to do. Do you think anytime an Astros batter gets hit they will be suspended? It's going to be some random late inning, with nobody on, and they will hit someone and act like it was an accident. Now any response to that by the Astros would be obvious retaliation.

    Who exactly called Harold Reynold's explanation "conspiracy theory" and why would anyone listen to them? Chapman hung a slider that most hitters in that position would have been sitting on. Not much of a conspiracy.

    You can. Everyone will look at you like an idiot though. This is like someone getting an A on a test and bragging about it even though he copied the answer from someone next to him.

    More like bragging about getting an A on the test while the entire class was cheating and they just got B’s

    I think we can all safely ignore @Eternalwhoo and @RepublicanPupp1 and their combined 25 followers (if they're even real people).

    Whatever you say. What is this purity you're looking for in pro sports?

    How many trophies did the Pats give back? Where was your righteous indignation back then during Spygate? A-Rod won a ring with the Yankees while he happened to be juiced to the gills...etc...etc...etc...

    Yes the Stros ****ed up, yes they're guilty, everyone acknowledges that. What do you want? Pound of flesh? Get the **** over it, and get the **** over yourself.

    They won 107 games last year with a team that on paper was much better than the 2017 one.

    If you're not believing any of it is legit... not sure why you're still here?

    ?? If its intentional, it will be punished. Even if its late in the game and ultimately meaningless to the outcome. Even if they claim its an accident.

    And the second a pitcher gets suspended for 10+ games because of it, it will likely stop.

    A couple links for @adoo

    FROM THE LA TIMES:
    The Chavez Ravine raid in 1959, f*cking despicable, just gross inhumanity, congratulations Dodger fans, you officially one upped us long ago. I’m quite sure that petulant little prick of a history buff Bellinger knows all about this.

    https://www.latimes.com/opinion/story/2020-01-26/dodger-stadium-land-stolen-astros-cheating

    The Mets accusation, one of the accusations that you refuse to acknowledge

    I’m not gonna consider then champions until they win one without cheating. Pats validated their greatness by winning multiple rings. If the Astros win another one, I will consider their 2017 title legitimate.

    the dizzying height of ignorance.

    too ignorant to understand what eminent domain is.

    for the education of the ignorant one, the previous owners were compensated at Fair Market Value for their inconvenience, as per the eminent domain issued by the City of Los Angeles.



    these are incidents of Dodger stealing signs on the field of play.

    too bad that ur incapable of differentiating it from the Astros, not on the field of play or dugout, using devises to steal signs

    stupidity is equating the 2

    The Astros didn’t cheat last year according to all of the evidence.

    According to evidence the Astros cheating is more serious than other teams. So more like the Astros cheated on half the test while the rest of the class cheated on 1/4. If the other teams cheated just like the Astros, they might have gotten an A too

    Take the “L” again and move on.

    No Brewers or Mets players or coaches said the Dodgers were stealing signs on the field of play. You just assumed that to be the case.

    I am not sure why you always choose to plant your flag on subjects you are ignorant about.

    You have clearly shown you do not know the game of baseball well enough to be involved in this discourse. You cannot comprehend basic logic.

    No worry... I will let “Clement” know you wish him the best.

    Doo doo- pretty clear you are here just to troll. You ignore obvious counters to your arguments and only post to extend arguments instead of finding common ground.

    PS - I’m sorry Kershaw has sucked so much in the playoffs

    LOL yes hide behind eminent domain, stay classy buddy.

    on field off field, they have been accused multiple times, face it. Long history of cheating, enjoy your new cheating Dodgers, they should feel right at home.

    He’s been putrid his entire career in the playoffs, well before we ever saw him. Oh well, always next year....
