It's not an unfair advantage. Is it an unfair advantage if you have better baseball smarts and can predict what pitch a pitcher will throw? Sign recognition and sign hiding is a skill that is part of the game. Getting people off the field to relay the information is where the unfair advantage comes in.
We just disagree.
How about those in the dugout are you going to say they are on the field?

Who was the genius/idiot who was following Carlos Beltran's niece on twitter?

Wow. This looks really bad. Bizarre at the very least. Though nothing conclusive.

Also, Altuve's extremely tempered reaction to hitting a walkoff homer off chapman to send the Astros to the world series also warrants some attention .

Plot twist. There is no juiced baseball, it's just everyone using buzzers to cheat.

I don't see how players with buzzers are going to avoid getting penalized.

I don't think the "don't rip off my jersey" is gonna be conclusive enough for MLB to do anything. I don't know if they have anything else, but it certainly doesn't assign any guilt to Bregman who was also accused by Beltran's (supposed) niece of using the buzzers.

If true, I think it also speaks to the fact that they didn't just cheat in 2017 and that should factor into the decision just like it is for Cora.

So the MLB just missed this in their investigation? Plausible but a bit odd.

If Manfred goes after players this escalates everything to a whole new level . MLBPA not going to go down quiet (unless most players are pro the punishments)

Guys sit on pitches all the time when ahead in the count. He does take his shirt off. No video of that?

Don't know about a fork, but It's bad. I loved Altuve even though I hated what he did to the Yankees. But this stinks. I couldn't look at Judge, Didi, Gleyber the same way if this came out about them either.

They need to hold the players responsible in this mess.

I was that before, but this buzzer stuff is so much worse.
