Are the Astros Cheaters!? That's what is being investigated by the MLB and Astros. They are claiming there was a hidden camera that would read pitching signs and former pitchers are saying they had knowledge of this. I guess the whole scheme was a large bang in a dugout when there would be a change up sign from the catcher giving the batter a heads up what to come. We all know one hit can make or break a game, specially in the World Series and we all know who won the 2017 World Series. This is straight cheating!

“That’s not playing the game the right way,” said Fiers, who was with the team from 2015-17 and was non-tendered in the offseason after the Astros won the 2017 World Series. “They were advanced and willing to go above and beyond to win.”
Three other sources who were inside the organization in 2017 and had direct knowledge of the scheme discussed its existence on the condition of anonymity.
The Astros’ set-up required technical video knowledge and required the direct aid of at least some on the baseball operations staff, team sources said.
The Astros chose not to comment.
