Astros sign-stealing reportedly started with 2016 front office scheme

My wife thinks that if a team is this innovative and creative they shouldn't be penalized. I'm not so sure.

Oh is she a Trump supporter too?

No, she's a Bernie bro.

would the female equivalent be a Bernie Babe?

Sorry to hijack the MLB thread

But that was five years ago, before we had as much data on Sanders' support base — which, as it turns out, should be sufficient to debunk the stereotype that Sanders' support base consists entirely of a mythic tribe of entitled, pushy young millennial men. To wit: young women make up more of Sanders' base than men. He polls especially high with Hispanic voters, far more so than with white voters; Hispanic voters also donated more money to him than any other Democratic candidate. Polls consistently show that nonwhite voters prefer him over the other candidates. Notably, the demographic group that likes Sanders the least is white men.

Moreover, of all the candidates, Sanders has taken in the most money from women. Many of Sanders' female supporters bemoan how they are ignored by the mainstream press. "The 'Bernie Bro' narrative is endlessly galling because it erases the women who make up his base," writer Caitlin PenzeyMoog opined on Twitter. "To paint this picture of sexism is to paint over the millions of women who support Sanders. Do you see how f**ked up that is?"

Since news of the cheating schemes broke, teams who lost to the Astros have called for the team to forfeit wins and the 2017 World Series title. Crane was adamant that the team’s victories and 2017 championship remain in place.

“Our opinion is THIS DIDN'T IMPACT THE GAME. We had a good team. We won the World Series and we’ll leave it at that,” Crane said.

WHAT??

Your opinion is only as valid as the evidence you have to back it up, and the evidence is quite damning:
