    I bought my uncle a customized Washington Nationals World Series glass that said “Houston Asterisks Lose”... got in just in time for Thanksgiving dinner at my house. He refused to drink from it, despite multiple efforts. I imagine he smashed it a mile from my home.

    I also had the football scores of LSU vs TX A&M between 2012-2016 on my grooms cake since my wife and I went to all of the game and LSU beat her loser alma mater in all of them.

    I’m a petty asshole. I know.

    80's as hell:

    "Speaking to WFNZ-AM in Charlotte, where he serves as baseball coach for Queens University, McDowell said the White Sox had a camera zoomed in on opposing catchers and a light in an outfield Gatorade sign that could be controlled from the manager's office and would presumably let hitters know which pitches were coming."

    Apparently the way to cheat is with lights in areas that aren't caught by broadcast cameras, not banging on a drum where mics pic them up.

    The Twins used to change the vents and the way the air conditioning system would blow based on whether they were at the plate in the Metrodome. I don't know how much that would actually change things, but the superintendent there admitted to doing it in the WS and other games for years.

    Between that and the Vikings miking up the crowd noise the Metrodome sure was pathetic on so many levels.

    (And not much has changed now that the Vikings moved across the street)

    In Necessary Roughness, after receiving the Death Penalty, the Texas State Armadillos hired Ed “Straight Arrow” Gennero to clean things up and run the program as he had the best reputation in the sport.

    Who would be your baseball equivalent for the Astros to hire?

    Cal Ripken?

    There aren’t a lot of baseball people at least somehow tied to cheating or corruption.

    The other player leaves their ball on the green to help out the player in the bunker. You hear Kevin Na cheering for the ball to hit his.

    Now, technically the rule wasn't broken because there needs to be an explicit agreement between the players that he won't mark, but there is a lot of players out there just doing for their buddies.

    Bregman has been cocky as hell and eager to run his mouth going back to his first year at LSU in 2013. Seeing him repeat those no comment lines over and over pisses me off. People who can't own a mistake are the worst

    MLBN Top 10 has been back the last two weekends. They've already gone through all three OF spots and 1B. Show is better this year with Sarah Langs in for Vince Gennaro, no Bill James, and I'm even kind of into the Brian Kenny/Mad Dog all-time rankings at these positions.

    RF is loaded. CF seems really weak overall, and LF sucks at the top after Soto but has a bit of depth.

    Gonna go ahead and say that by the end of this season Stanton will be much better than #10 LFer in baseball.
