Zep has the keys, and I’m not sure he’s around here any more. I have his number somewhere and will try to dig it up and call him this weekend.

If anyone here would like to join, drop a note here and PM me your email, I’ll get you an invite. This will be our 15th season (!!) and we are running with 8 players the past few years. We have room for 4 More.

I hear ya, we lost a pretty good manager and have been under investigation for two months because of his alleged involvement in  Houston. 
Seems he’s a bit of a fall guy, but they didn’t go easy on Hinch or the GM and I expect he’ll get it worse. Results are supposedly gonna be announced Friday.
Not hoping for another investigation at all, but I really wonder what in hell all Bret Gardner’s banging on the dugout ceiling was al about last year.  
 
The two incidents I'd seen of him doing that he was apparently "protesting" calls from the home plate umpire; I don't know if there was a batter in the box either time (not a lot of camera angles).  He was ejected by the home plate umpire both times.

I agree that it does befoul the win. Sign stealing has been a part of baseball since day one but I agree that to have taken it into the 21st century as the Astros did was just too much.  With that said I also think our pitching staff was equally responsible for us winning that series and knowing what pitch is about to be thrown and hitting that pitch are two entirely different things. That's just how it seems to me but again my take is distorted because I'm a homer like a mofo. {#Meditate}

I think corking bats should be allowed. Maybe not with the superballs that some players were using, but actual cork, sure. 

 
 I think corked bats are far preferable to aluminium or even those splintery maple ones.  Even with superballs I don't think it does a whole lot other than make it lighter.  As a general rule lighter is faster, faster is better.

  Several years ago I was watching a spring training game and one of the announcers was going over the new rules that would be in effect that year.  One of them was that starting that year when managers made mound visits they would be allowed to bring along an interpreter for their Japanese, Spanish, or whatever speaking pitchers. Without missing a beat Jim Deshaies chimed in "Man, I sure wished we had that back when Yogi was managing".

I think that's what the majority of the league feels - it's very different than the baserunner on second base or the batter looking down over his shoulder trying to steal signs - it's a hi-tech, 21st Century method in a 19th Century game (at least presently) played by people.  I have a feeling that the Astros batters are likely to get a lot of pitches that will be a little more "inside" than they will be comfortable with -  throughout this season.
