Quick little sportball take here based on the recent news:

So Alex Cora is out, which is too bad because I really liked that guy. Everyone seems to be in agreement that we deserved this to happen, even Red Sox fans. I disagree. I blame the Astros for firing their manager AJ Hinch first. There was no need for that, but after they did it there was no way we weren’t gonna do it too, since Cora is allegedly the mastermind of this insane overreaction.
“Oh no, they saw the signs and banged a couple trash cans.”
Big deal. Don’t let cameras in the game then. How is this any different from Spygate exactly? And how did stealing signs help David Price win two games in the World Series? How did we win Game 4 and 5 of the World Series on the road if the “cheating” only happened at home? Show me the exact games the Red Sox or Astros won as a result of this “cheating” scandal. Any team that isn’t actively switching up its signs was negligent and deserved to lose anyway.
Watch this video and listen to how upset this dude is about “stealing signs.”
“That’s so upsetting.”
Shut the fuck up. That video proves that there’s a way around sign stealing. The pitcher figures out the trash cans and switches his shit up. Next pitch is a strikeout. This is gamesmanship, not cheating. And it might be the biggest overreaction in the history of fake outrage.
