    They’re not “taking away the ring”

    Huge reward. We won the title on it. The data is real and substantiates the benefit on both the road and at home. You know what pitch is coming the game is easy. When you don't know what pitch is coming the game is hard. We stole signs everywhere. Our lineup was almost as good as the 27 Yankees. And you know how often that happens. Never. It doesn't. It was an orgy of evidence. Don't wear a blindfold to the importance of intel in any realm of life. Do I care. No. It's part of the game which is why they have signals to stop it. But major advantage.

    It's time to realize that professional sports as a whole are a lot closer to professional wrestling than ever hoped.

    Like everyone else here, I absolutely HATE all of this.

    Does anyone know of any YouTube channels/videos or articles that discuss this in a more Astros-friendly way? All I can find are basically Jomboy and the YES Network saying to throw the book at us. It can be pro-Astros biased as hell or objective as hell; I don't care - just so long as the source is an Astros fan.

    I live close enough to work that I only get about 10 mins of sports radio, so I've been having trouble keeping up with this on the daily.

    I just need something to minimize the depression and dread I'm currently feeling.

    Ugh.

    Yeah she doesn’t mess around. I totally dig her. I’m not one to follow sports figures wives, but she’s super cool.

    She's freaking hilarious. Talks about Radiohead and edibles. Cuts down her husband playfully. She fully gets Twitter and definitely a top 10 follow imo

    Speed/Uppers in the 60s, domestic abuse offenders, taking Sudafed as an upper in the 80s/90s, gamblers in the hall of fame except Pete Rose because Giamatti hates him, Bud Selig, the list goes on and on.

    I've seen several NY reporters coming out saying that the Astros should lose there 1st round pick over the next 5 years. They are really trying to bury them. Given that there was not a solid rule put in place in 2017 it should not go anywhere near that hopefully.
