    Never Too Early To Discuss Houston Astros 2020

    Or should we call them Houston Assholes.

    They've been caught. My question is; how many others may be doing it?

    Cheating is like the old statement about pornography by Justice Potter Stewart: "I know it when I see it." If you're a base runner on second and you're not trying to steal signs, you're not doing your job. But if you're setting up cameras, finding signs with them, and relaying them to the batter by some means (banging garbage cans, concealed buzzers under uniforms), that goes against the spirit of sportsmanship.

    The Portuguese Lothario is right, Rob Manfred to allow immunity makes him look like a Ron McLean. The Asstros start the season in Anaheim and Oakland.

    Hopefully a member of the Asstros will do a commercial for Frank D'Angelo's Cheetah energy drink. What their 2017 WS Championship is reduced to.

    Everybody who participated should be suspended for at least a year and their WS win should be stricken.

    Baseball has been losing ground to football and basketball for years. The last thing you want is the integrity of the game to be questioned.

    Never Too Late to Start a 2nd Thread on the Same Topic

    https://terb.cc/vbulletin/showthread...is-a-BIG-no-no

    As George brought up regarding the multiple Leafs threads, keeping a certain topic in one thread is much more efficient.

    It's never too early for me to be nitpicking.

    If opposing pitchers engage in throwing at the Houston batters, they are essentially throwing at their own team’s batters. The Houston pitchers will be obliged by code to retaliate. And they will. So how is this going to work?

    Maybe under the circumstance each MLB team gets to throw once at each Astro on the '17 team without reprisal. Sounds fair to me.

    Or take away the WS instead.

    But let's talk about how the Astros 2020 season is going in this thread.

    Tough to say. There's always the possible scenario where the whole world is against them and it ends out bringing them together as a group.

    I sense more bat flips after a HR off an Astros pitcher.

    Carlos Beltran's managerial career has been nixed before it even started. There's going to be many black and blue butt cheeks in Houston.
