Real or not, the Astros aren't going to get the benefit of the doubt on anything. They've lost in the court of public opinion.

Well I see where you stand.

Maybe Altuve had a pornographic image on his T-shirt and he didn't want to offend anyone. 

Maybe he had a giant hickey from someone not his wife.  It could be anything.  Maybe he was cold.  lol

I admit it looks odd, but hard to say for sure, regardless I agree with the OP to some extent.  If the Astro's and Redsox are going to these lenghts to cheat, what are the other teams doing....

Altuve denies ever wearing an electronic device and MLB claims that their investigation looked into the possibility of wearable electronic devices and found nothing.

Case closed?

A case of the accused investigating themselves.

I just don't get why folks think this is any worse than was already out there.  They were stealing signs and transmitting the information to the hitters.  That is still what this is.

I am sure they didn’t look that hard.

They had a cover up.  The commissioner gave them immunity if they told the truth. And they had an organized denial.

I’m not convinced either. I’m just enjoying everyone dunking on the Astros right now. As an Orioles fan in 2020 I’m fully down with schadenfreude until the rebuild yields results. 

Right up to the minute Elias gets dragged into this mess

Chris Davis reached on error by second baseman LaMahieu, but Mason Williams grounded into a 4-6-3 double play and Iglesius made the final out of the inning.

    • Orioles News Catcher Austin Wynns passed through waivers today and was assigned to Norfolk where he will share playing time with Bryan Holaday.
    • Two weird things about Union Park: - Looking out from home plate the field faces due south.  Most modern parks face north or northeast.  OPACY and Memorial face(ed) NE. In the 1890s all games were day games, so the afternoon sun would be in the batters' eyes. - The main grandstand wasn't centered around home plate.  You can see this in the photograph, but home plate was only 20-30 feet from the right edge of the stands (looking at the fire insurance map above).  This is because of the apartments or rowhouses at the NE corner of the lot which I assume predated the park.  If you lived at 309 E 25th (hard to read the numbers, looks kind of like 309), you'd be closer to home plate than the CFer.
