    The only thing stopping it from happening is league intervention to try and make it unappealing to continue.

    It's just going to be such a hard thing to manage. How do they determine intentional and not.

    MLB has a history of hiding scandals until it's too late.

    Mendoza is an idiot on this.
    I had read that Oakland had brought concerns of electronic sign stealing to the league in 2017 and it was investigated and the results were inconclusive.

    If the season is cancelled, it will still count as a suspension for the Astros coaches. How does that seem fair?

    The suspensions should be pushed forward with the season. This might just result in more players getting beaned when baseball does resume as the punishments will seem even less fair

    It might be a problem with the language in the paperwork. There might be a conflict between letter of the law and spirit of the law. I don't know anything about the situation but that would be my guess.

    No verdict on the Boston cheating scandal has been announced. It seems as if Manfred is trying to avoid a second COVID-Voided punishment

    They'll likely announce something right around when baseball resumes. They announce it now and it's all over the news. They tried doing that with Houston doing it around Spring Training but that just delayed peoples reactions.

    Yup they are wise to wait until there is some good news before they give us the negative news.

    Yankees got a bigger penalty on signing Gerrit Cole than RedSox did on cheating.
