• Sox Caught Red Handed

    It’s going to be very interesting how baseball handles this – especially since they confessed.

    What’s the proper punishment? Can it be any more than what they got for signing kids from Latin America with shady tactics? MLB has to make a statement here. Just a token fine isn’t going to cut it.

      They won’t forfeit games for four reasons:

      1) It’s never been done before, and MLB teams don’t want the commissioner affecting pennant races and playoff spots in this way;
      2) The commissioner can’t calculate how much this affected the outcome of games;
      3) The commissioner can’t determine which games were affected;
      4) It’s never been done before, and MLB teams don’t want the commissioner affecting pennant races and playoff spots in this way.

      Yeah, I did that once twice for emphasis, it opens of a can of worms they don’t want, and should never open.

      On the one hand, what the Cards did was against federal law, and this wasn’t. On the other hand, what the Cards did was apparently one rogue employee (supposedly), while this was actions in concert by at least several people working for the team, and possibly some players were totally in on it. The thing is, the players can say they knew they were getting info, but can deny knowledge of it being obtained electronically, so I don’t think they’ll get any suspensions.

      Similar to the punishment the Cards got for hacking the Astros: a substantial fine and loss of a top draft pick or two. That’s what I’m expecting, anyway.

      What a TRAVESTY! The Commish doesn’t have the guts to do anything against Gammons beloved Sox. More likely, it’s “Disney’s Team” through the lackeys out in Bristol.
