Yankees Cheating?

5 posts in this topic

I find it rather insignificant and kind of silly but it has been getting a lot of talk. If it were the Royals who did this, you never would have heard about it.

You may have seen Keith Olbermann tweet this picture of Brett Weber, who regularly charts velocity and pitch type from behind home plate for the Yankees, holding up four fingers towards the field during the season opener Thursday against the Tigers.

It seemed more weird than anything else at the time, but it turns out that MLB rules prohibit team employees from using hand signals to communicate pitch types or speeds to players

    • lol so they made Jinder the universal champion? big deal, the b show champion has never been even as prestigious as the intercontinental championship was in the early 90s. the real world champion is being held by a part timer, just like it kind of was in the early 90s whenever hogan was carrying it.
    • What are you waiting for? The final.solution?
    • This reminded me of his speech in Charleston (Boeing?). He talked of punishments for companies that tried to move jobs to other countries. Why hamstring countries so that they can't operate with efficiency and effectiveness. Seems awfully collectivist and anti-capitalist for someone who is touted as a pro-business capitalist. So here, with Carrier, he was applauded for some sort of effort to keep some amount of jobs in America. Yay. Oh wait, that wasn't actually sustainable? Federal Gov't meddling into corporate staffing decisions didn't work out as planned? Color me shocked. I don't think this guy has a clue what he is doing. He has no real ideology and doesn't understand , or care,  how things work or what the consequences to any action or comment will be.  I guess he is just throwing poo against the wall to see what sticks and what will appease his mouth-breathing, isolationist, supporters.
