    This is the reason this is never going away.

    Really? We can't even stop talking about it on our own message board?

    Every team was presented all the evidence. And every team voted after seeing the data. And only the Dodgers and Yankees voted to strip the title from the Astros. All the teams saw what the empirical data suggests, that the stupid scheme didn’t sway the pendulum one way or another.

    Of course the Dodgers and Yankees are trolling because they were the whipping boys for the Astros on their way to a World Series. Plus where is the headquarters of the sports national media, uhmm LA and New York. And who’s been pushing the allegations the most, the National media.

    Why did Boston not challenge too, well because they had similar stupid schemes.

    I mean I agree with you but at this point it’s just comic relief. Doesn’t have the same affect it had on me anymore

    David Samson, who was President of the Marlins stated all teams voted as to the legitimacy of the 2017 title; and all team less the Dodgers and Yankees agreed it was legitimate (and these two teams had sour grapes). I’ve attached the segment where he calls BS on Hakem Dermish’s questioning the legitimacy of 2017, and opens up about each MLB team being called to cast a vote! The whole segment is great, but at 3:45 is where David starts talking about all 27 teams agreement that 2017 was legit.​

    And even though he doesn’t say vote in this segment, it’s obviously inferred, as he said 27 agree the 2017 is legit. And even though there were calls for the 2017 to be stripped from the Astros, the commissioner refrained, because if 27 of your bosses say it’s legit, he wasn’t going anywhere with that.

    I watched this segment and took that as his opinion of what other teams thought.

    I didn't hear anything that said other teams were asked or voted
