Just point me to where in the MLB rule book it says sign stealing is illegal.




I'll wait.


Not there, but using electronic devices to steal such signs is illegal and in the rules. Even Farrell said if he knew that, he would have put a stop to it.

The whole region is a bunch of cheaters.

So it's not in the rule book but it's against the rules.

"We actually do not have a rule against sign-stealing," Manfred said. "It has been a part of the game for a very, very long time. To the extent that there was a violation of the rule here, it was a violation by one or the other [team] that involved the use of electronic equipment. It's the electronic equipment that creates the violation. I think the rule against electronic equipment has a number of policy reasons behind it, but one of them is we don't want to escalate attempts to figure out what a pitcher is going to throw by introducing electronics into that mix.



and where it generated from:

While there is no official rule against electronic devices, then-MLB operations chief Sandy Alderson effectively laid down the law with a memo distributed in 2000:

Please be reminded that the use of electronic equipment during a game is restricted. No club shall use electronic equipment, including walkie-talkies and cellular telephones, to communicate to or with any on-field personnel, including those, in the dugout, bullpen, field and-during the game-the clubhouse. Such equipment may not be used for the purpose of stealing signs or conveying information designed to give a club an advantage.


clear enough for you?

That's like saying the roiders didn't break the rules because it's not a violation to build muscle mass.

Geez man, I was just breaking your balls.

I am sorry the baseball team I root for so brazenly broke what had previously been the impeccable integrity of the MLB. Already having a tough time figuring out what to tell my children. :/

It is good to have tough conversations with your sons. It will prepare them for when they decide to come out to you/MTM

Okay okay, you are flailing wildly tonight. I get it. Shoehorns are flying everywhere. Do you want me to just acknowledge you or do you still need to work in a forced Bruins one?

Let me know.

You see, you said they "chose" to let their opponents score more runs. Clever, I know.

I will go work on a David Pastrnak Dr. Zhivago joke loljk.

Did you see how the MLB Sunday Night crew totally jinxed Sale with the Sale/Kluber Cy Young poll, and he immediately gave up back to back dingers? #CCAB #THREADINTEGRITY

ANYWAY, nice of the Red Sox to......steal a win last night versus the Blue Jays. Maybe this victory is a........sign of things to come?

Look at Mr. Wordplay over here. Making light of these super duper serious allegations. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Stop trying to steal my thunder over last night's season saving win. Maybe start looking for signs for why you're team blew that lead last night.
