My point is that teams were already using the replay rooms as a means to give batters the signs with a runner at 2nd base. Not saying it is nearly as serious of an offense.
Curious how the Boston thing plays out.
From the Braves' new ballpark in North Point.
Chandler Shepherd will start for the Orioles, and likely go two innings. It will be his second consecutive start for the O's, as he started the season finale in Boston. Ty Blach will follow him.
What do you think was the best way to find out? Ask them to give themselves up with no benefit or offer immunity?
Once again we only know about 2017 because a player on the team admitted to what happened. I doubt the Astros left the evidence of what they were doing laying around. I don’t know how exactly MLB could investigate this after the fact and find out the truth. Only way I could see is if emails with details of the plot were found.
I have no idea how MLB will ever find out anything about 2018 or 19 -if something did happen- unless a player or team employee admits to it.
Wouldn't necessarily be service time reasons. He's never played a game at the AAA level. I don't think 45 spring training at bats, no matter how good they are, would merit skipping that level completely.
