Signaling off speed does seem a better way to use sign stealing than how I imagined it.

Honestly, this is pretty disgusting. I know that teams and players are always trying to cheat or gain an advantage, but it still sucks that it happens. There's always been cheating in baseball, between PEDs and spitballs, all the way back to Ty Cobb's time, but that doesn't make it ok.

It is a real shame. The Astros were a good story. They were horrible. Then they built themselves up, all the way to World Series champions. Were they good enough without cheating? Probably, but now this will always hang over their heads. Add another asterisk in the minds of baseballs fans.
