    MLB Cheating Scandal Mega-thread

    I have a feeling this story isn't over quite yet.

    Carlos Beltran made a burner account to defend himself online

    I don't even care if "Ivan" or the niece is real or just troll accounts. This is fantastic.

    For those that haven't seen the official report from MLB, here it is.

    MLB's official findings
    "For someone who was never meant for this world, I must confess I'm suddenly having a hard time leaving it. Of course, they say every atom in our bodies was once part of a star. Maybe I'm not leaving... maybe I'm going home."

    Next, the Padres lemmings will be calling for the 2017-18 NL pennants to be retroactively awarded to their team because they're convinced that the Doyers and everybody else were just as guilty as hell like the Astros were, and that the Padres hitters sucked only because they were playing The Right Way. Just like good ol' boys Ken Caminiti and Shawne Merriman used to in their heyday.

    I'm starting to get the feel that Henry is your baseball equivalent to J-5 in football

    aka, the guy who posts extremely myopic pro-team opinions that you attribute to the entire fan base.

    And San Diego hates us, because as noted sociologist Anthony Rendon once said, we're all living that Hollywood lifestyle, so the feeling goes both ways.

    Hey, I'm not denying the fact that there are San Diegans with a weirdly stupid view of LA as a whole, but that doesn't deny the fact that you keep reading Henry posts and responding to them as though that's the consensus view among Padres fans, much like you've done with J-Five and Chargers fans.

    Meh, people make generalizations of L.A.'s fan base all the time, saying we're soft and should toughen up (NYers like Paradoxx_NYC come to mind), but then we saw those same people eat shit and cry about us not having empathy for Utley breaking Ruben Tejada's leg. Please. If that was Seager's leg that was broken, NYers would argue it was a hard-nosed play by the Mets and that we should get the sand out of our vaginas.

    So, two wrongs make a right?

    Re: Cheating Scandal Mega-thread

    No, but I believe fan bases are weirdly stupid as a whole. For the record, I'm not one of the many pinkhat Doyer fans who believes the team was 100% innocent of shady shit and should be awarded the '17/18 WS titles, just like I'm not absolving Darvish 100% for throwing Games 3 and 7. Even if we grant you that Beltran and his asshole team stole all your signs, Alex Freaking Wood had the same disadvantage and still pitched better than you did.

    So, the Astros' own fucking nerds literally created a spreadsheet for their team to cheat at home and on the road, and A.J. Hinch still acts like he had no idea what happened.

    Re: Cheating Scandal Mega-thread

    This same guy who once directed his HR dept, "Once you hire blacks, you can never fire them" is making his gentle negro apologize for cheating even though he wasn't employed on the Crane Plantation any time during the past 3 years.

    Everyone's raking the Astros over the coals (not that they don't deserve it) and I'm sitting here wondering why we still haven't heard anything about the Red Sox.

    Re: Cheating Scandal Mega-thread

    Why is Cody Bellinger talking about the Astros when he is also cheating, AMIRITE Henry?
