    The soldiers rarely get punished but the commanders that's another story. Impractical to think you can suspend an entire team but I get the frustration.

    Yeah, I don't get this argument at all, it's a cop out. How beautiful would it be, and what kind of message would it send, to have 15-20 guys suspended on one team all at the same time? Add in a postseason suspension too, and 2020 basically becomes a lost cause for their org. Their 40-man roster gets fucked while trying to replace them, and they will no doubt have to DFA players at some point. It's a clusterfuck to deal with for sure, but that would be a real punishment for the organization. Instead, watch those shithead players get the biggest standing O's they've ever had at MMP, like some kind of victims.

    I think Manfred just didn't want to deal with the MLBPA, that's the crux of this bullshit.

    If the entire team cheated, the entire team should be suspended. It's not complicated.

    Union affords them protection not the Mgr or GM. How do you prove they had knowledge and how long would the hearings take etc.

    EDIT: Manfred wrote a memo in 2017 saying the GM and Mgr will be punished so they made their bed.

    Logan Morrison posted somewhere that he says he knows for a fact that the Yankees, Dodgers, RedSox, and Astros all used video to steal signs.

    It's a good analogy if the stakes were similar.
    This is not about morality like in the military.
    This is simply corruption.
    And we can handle the truth about the sausage shop that is MLB.

    It was a unique environment back then. Some of the Giant fans were almost human (of course that was before they won their three titles).

    From what I read, we looked at recorded footage and saw the signs, not a live feed of the actual game being played.
