    Default Baseball

    Now the guy who came out with everything about the Astros "sign stealing" is being labeled as a snitch by former players.

    I'm sure a lot of you guys have played team sports in the past. What is your take on this?

    The MLB commissioner is a pansy.

    Until they put Pete Rose in the Hall of Fame, baseball is dead to me.

    Pete Rose should be in the HOF based upon playing accomplishments alone.

    In a recent interview, Hank Aaron said he thought Barry Bonds should be in the HOF and Pete Rose should not. Puzzling.

    If another team can figure out your signals, then you need a better method of signal sending

    You bet on the sport you play/coach, you deserve the chop and no HOF.

    No way to truly hide your signs if someone is using binoculars/video cameras and sending info electronically. I have no problem with runner on second base trying to steal signs and tip the pitches. He is part of the game and earned his way to second base. Astros went way beyond what is acceptable.

    I agree with the lifetime ban, but his accomplishments on the field make him an obvious hall of famer.

    Barry Bonds and Clemens were also HOF'ers before they decided to juice-up. And I don't disagree with you, just stating a fact.

    BB HOF has kinda lost its luster. They put in a lot of good players now that in my mind aren’t hall worthy. Football HOF the same.

    Rose wasn’t accused of doing anything to alter his performance. His stats are legit. Theirs are not.

    If Willie Mays would have taken the Bonds route he would have hit 1200 home runs.

    Charlie Hustle should be in the HOF, but like baggy said the hof doesn’t carry the class that it used to.

    As for the astros, I agree they cheated and should have to face some sort of discipline, but how should the players/team be penalized? Vacate the WS?

    I agree that sign stealing is a part of the game and I don't even have a problem with the trashcan banging, but when you use methods that are only available to you (home field cameras), I have a problem with it. Pete Rose should be in the HOF as a PLAYER and I think the fact of knowing what pitch is coming is far more "cheating" than juicing up. The fact that the Astros can't say that they would have won the WS without cheating, IMO, means that it should be vacated.
