    The Guardians of Ohio. Maybe they get a talking raccoon as their mascot.

    I am 100% for Cleveland changing their name...but Guardians was a HORRIBLE choice.

    I guess the trick is going to be the catcher being able to hit the buttons in a way that is not visible by anyone. If a catcher does it the same way every time, eventually teams will station people in the stands somewhere with a vantage point to see. I suppose if they angle it towards their chest and hold it close to their bodies, there wouldn't be any way to tell what they are entering.

    I can't remember which thread, but I posted something like this not that long ago. It frustrated me that everyone complained so much about the sign stealing when the technology for this type of solution has been around for a while, now. There is no reason they couldn't have done this a decade ago.

    I wonder how HE was cheating? But let's all continue pushing the lazy and inaccurate narrative that ONLY we were trying to get an advantage. But I guess that doesn't fit a lazy narrative, and allows the West Coast and East Coast to continue to be untouched. Awesome.

    From the story, continues to advance the media narrative:
    We did the worst kind of cheating because banging on a trash gun is miles worse and far more egregious than relaying signals via an Apple Watch or a Theragun...

    I disagree. This is the reason and I like it.

    I have a frat brother who works for the Dodgers (I know, I know) said he's a big time juicer (or was not sure if he still is)

    After today,

    3@Seattle
    3@SF
    2@LAD

    Of these 8, how many wins?

    I think we need 4 of them.

    No clue, I do know that having an off day after Seattle and after SF helps.

    They lost 6 against Baltimore/Detroit and lived to tell about it.

    I don’t think they “need” much… but wouldn’t be surprised if they win more than they lose.
