https://www.usatoday.com/story/spor...ff-luhnow-aj-hinch-suspended-year/4456644002/ Major League Baseball dealt the most severe punishment against a team in its history Monday by suspending Houston Astros GM Jeff Luhnow and manager A.J. Hinch for a year for their role in using electronic equipment to steal signs, while fining the organization $5 million and stripping them of first- and second-round draft picks in 2020-2021. An hour later, Astros owner Jim Crane announced that Luhnow and Hinch were both fired. “I felt with what came out in the report they both had responsibilities," Crane said. “Neither one of them started this but neither one of them did anything about it." The message sent was clear: Baseball will not permit cheating in baseball, and the next organization that uses illegal electronic equipment will be dealt even a harsher penalty. =============================================================== So... should they be stripped of their World Series Title? When you look at their home game box scores, compared to their away games during the World Series, the numbers are incredible. Their middle line up batters have a batting average swing of over .300 !!! I think this is life time ban stuff. They deprived other teams from an honest shot at the Championship. They did this through the season, playoffs, and World Series. Here is a good video showing how they did it. There are others out there against different teams, but this one give you the idea of how they cheated.
