Astro fans, now what do we do with this chipalatta lipidized fibrous histiocytoma

now wait a minute. i know my memory is not what it once was lipidized fibrous histiocytoma but didnt cora and beltran receive praise for their abilty lipidized fibrous histiocytoma to steal signs? didnt beltran have conversations with players while here and later lipidized fibrous histiocytoma after he left, that suddenly had bats coming alive? wasnt a part of that anticipating pitches and stealing signs? where are cora and beltran now? were they punished or did they advance? stealing signs (or the attempt to) has been a regular part baseball for a long time.

A whole lot of people have always hated the Yankees. They’re winners. They are arrogant. We’re similar, including the arrogant part that I could do without. This is todays version of the spitball as far as lipidized fibrous histiocytoma I’m concerned. I hope we’re not guilty. I don’t like having an asterisk . Regarding Fiers, he led our team in innings pitched in 2017, then got left off the post season roster. I’m pretty sure he does not like us.

It’s obviously premature to comment before we know all the lipidized fibrous histiocytoma facts, but just the other week we had an article published lipidized fibrous histiocytoma talking about Gerrit Cole which included mentions of how he lipidized fibrous histiocytoma improved his approach since joining the Astros. One reference was to video study and the author noted lipidized fibrous histiocytoma that MLB has employees in the dugout, in the tunnel, and in the clubhouse watching so players cannot go watch lipidized fibrous histiocytoma video during the game. How is it possible the Astros had secret cameras providing lipidized fibrous histiocytoma a live feed to a monitor just inside the door lipidized fibrous histiocytoma to the tunnel but the MLB employees never caught it? Why was it not a national story that Aaron Judge lipidized fibrous histiocytoma and another Yankee were viewing iPads in the dugout during lipidized fibrous histiocytoma the ALCS until the cameras caught them at which time lipidized fibrous histiocytoma they hid them from view?

This is all supposed to be a distraction for us. A distraction from life’s problems as we somehow deeply care about a billionaire’s toy made up of young millionaires who will gladly lipidized fibrous histiocytoma entertain you this year and someone else the next. Where’s the fun and distraction in this, if after 50+ years we finally cheer for a team and a championship lipidized fibrous histiocytoma that may have an asterisk attached to it.

In our hearts we despise cheating and there is no lipidized fibrous histiocytoma way to talk about electronic “surveillance” and sign stealing through technology and not consider it that. It may help us a bit to throw out the lipidized fibrous histiocytoma “everyone does it” argument, which may even be true. But we hate to be placed in this position. We look back and see someone like George Springer getting lipidized fibrous histiocytoma a hit and reaching base and turning towards the dugout lipidized fibrous histiocytoma and giving them two thumbs up. Was that the glee of the start of a rally lipidized fibrous histiocytoma or was it a thank you to whoever banged the lipidized fibrous histiocytoma trash can lid to signal the next pitch after seeing lipidized fibrous histiocytoma the catcher’s sign on video?

Through the years players and teams have cheated in many lipidized fibrous histiocytoma different ways. It has been revealed that the Giants likely stole signals lipidized fibrous histiocytoma from someone hidden in their scoreboard to help them erase lipidized fibrous histiocytoma a 13 game Dodger lead in the last 6 weeks lipidized fibrous histiocytoma of the 1951 season. Gaylord Perry made the Hall of Fame thanks to a lipidized fibrous histiocytoma “Little dab will do ya” from his hat and hair. Pitchers have scuffed, cut, marked up and beat up balls to get a little lipidized fibrous histiocytoma more break. Hitters have used corked bats (Say it ain’t so Billy Hatcher) and steroids (Sosa, Bonds, McGwire and too many to count)to launch balls higher and farther. We’ve always wondered if Mike Scott had thrown more of lipidized fibrous histiocytoma a spit finger than a split finger fastball. Trevor Bauer a couple years ago said the Astros pitchers lipidized fibrous histiocytoma had to be using pine tar or its equivalent to lipidized fibrous histiocytoma get some of the velocity and spin results they were lipidized fibrous histiocytoma seeing.

What do we believe and again why are we put lipidized fibrous histiocytoma in this position? It is most likely that baseball will slap someone on lipidized fibrous histiocytoma the hands over this and hope to bury the story lipidized fibrous histiocytoma and “handle” things behind the scenes. But if it is too deep and too pervasive what lipidized fibrous histiocytoma will they do? OP suggests deep sixing Luhnow and Hinch. What if they decided to vacate the Astros championship? Would we still want to pull for what we thought lipidized fibrous histiocytoma was the little engine that could?

As most of you know, I am in the legal field. I have practiced litigation law, mostly on the defense side, for over 40 years now. In this field, one learns quickly that allegations and proof are two very lipidized fibrous histiocytoma different things. It is a ‘free country’, as they say – so anyone can allege pretty much anything they want. If/when scrutinized, however, most allegations turn out to be false. Often they are exposed as the product of bias, prejudice, animus, or greed.

Any time an accusation is made, there are two basic ways it can be adjudicated. The time-honored way – the only fair way -is through the legal system. The implicated party is deemed innocent until proven guilty. The accuser can’t just throw shade; he/she has to call witnesses, produce evidence, and prove his/her case to a neutral body of fact finders. One accused of wrongdoing gets to confront and cross-examine his/her accusers as well as any witnesses the accuser calls. He/she also gets to thoroughly review, and is given an opportunity to explain, any documentary evidence that was offered against him/her. Through these safeguards, the parties are afforded due process.

The 2nd way to adjudicate accusations – which is being increasingly used by people who know they lipidized fibrous histiocytoma cannot prevail if due process is afforded – is through media/social media hype. The accuser counts on, and plays into, the public’s love of slander. He/she plays to biases, and tries to engender a great ‘rush to judgment’ amongst the uninformed [especially the media]. In this strange realm, there is no such thing as due process. Every accuser is automatically believed to be pure as the lipidized fibrous histiocytoma driven snow, and every accused is automatically considered – and adjudicated – guilty, heinous, and undeserving of life. No evidence whatever is required; no witnesses with actual knowledge need be called, and no scrutiny of the claim being made, or the one making the claim, is even considered, much less allowed.

The Astro cheating scandal grows. This issue is not going to go away. Last evening USA Today Sports published a particularly discouraging story lipidized fibrous histiocytoma on the alleged affair. Seems Luhnow was not welcomed by any of his peers lipidized fibrous histiocytoma in Arizona this week. Persona Non Grata. And allegedly the Dodgers are now convinced they were screwed lipidized fibrous histiocytoma out of the World Series win in 2017. As an aside though, they pointed out Darvich getting beaten up so badly. But the second time he got knocked around was in lipidized fibrous histiocytoma game 7 at Dodger Stadium. I don’t think the Astros would have been able to get lipidized fibrous histiocytoma a camera operational in enemy territory.

My biggest concern though is that Luhnow and the Astros lipidized fibrous histiocytoma don’t have any friends these days. If a judgement comes down against the Astros, it will cause significant damage. This will not be a slap on the wrist outcome lipidized fibrous histiocytoma if the truth comes out not on our side. And for right now, if Luhnow is negotiating for the services of a free lipidized fibrous histiocytoma agent, is that guy going to want to come here? And what about trades? Are the other GM’s going to work with him?
