This baseball cheating scandal is weird. I get the punishment but it's interesting that it's GMs and managers who are the focus and not any players. And it's too bad - I like Alex Cora but he had to go.
I guess it has a lot to do with the players union. Plus one can say a player was only doing what he was told to do by management.
I haven't been following it too closely until yesterday -- didn't realize they were using a garbage can to convey the pitch.
Below is a blog post, showing the how they did it, of course it shows the Astro playing the White Sox, Kinda crazy that the pitcher didn't go to the ump. It sure looks like he realized what was going on.
Of course, sign stealing has been around forever -- I do think using video is going over the line, though.
