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

I was just about to post that video.

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.

Does that mean that MLB half-assed the investigation or that these rumors about the buzzers and the ripping off the jerseys thing are all garbage?

The player's were granted immunity for their cooperation. If Manfred is able to substantiate this, he will have grounds to cancel that immunity (and he will be super pissed). I think Altuve gets banned a year if they can prove this.

The videos support the conspiracy but real evidence is needed.
He can just say I guessed the pitch (happens all the time) and I had to go to the bathroom.

Except multiple sources are what got us to look at these videos in the first place. MLB being unable to find those sources is probably because of a half-donkeyed investigation.

As I understand it, (and someone please correct me if I'm wrong) the reason Cora is facing more severe disciplinary action was because he continued it over multiple years when he brought it to the Sox (if/when that gets proven). Why would Altuve only get 1 year, if the buzzer thing is substantiated, he's clearly been doing it for multiple years as well. Would the be able to re-open and extend  AJ Hinch's punishment?
Except multiple sources are what got us to look at these videos in the first place. MLB being unable to find those sources is probably because of a half-donkeyed investigation.
That was my point. It seems clear to me that if they specifically investigated the use of wearable devices and didn't find anything, either they didn't look very hard, or the videos we're seeing are telling us something else (and I have no clue what). Or (and again, I'm not sure of this) did the MLB investigation into the Astros only cover 2017, if so they apparently hadn't gotten that sophisticated back then.

Also this whole "Beltran's niece" thing is kinda weird.

Cora is facing bigger suspension because he was the mastermind and brought it to a new team. Nothing to do with multiple years

Reminder that Cora didn't even get penalized yet. You can be sure that whatever he gets is going to be worse than Hinch who got a year.
