If I wasn’t a member of the Cody Bellinger fan club before, I am now.
Good for Bellinger.

Kritzer and I were talking about the Astros sign-stealing
tragedy in the pod this week and to me, this is bigger than PED’s and almost as bad as the 1919 Chicago ‘Black Sox’ throwing the World Series.
I know Rob Manfred hasn’t finished his investigation but if Pete Rose can’t set foot in an MLB ballpark, then Alex Cora, Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman, and AJ Hinch among others should probably get banned for life. Altuve and Bregman won’t. Cora might. Hinch – probably not. According to the precedent is to cheat the game for personal gain, stealing signs via telescopic cameras, relaying signs to a paid SIGN STEALING RUNNER who would relay the sign to the dugout where the impossible happened.
You can bet your World Series ring every team in Major League Baseball is going to throw chin music at Bregman, Altuve, et al, are going to wear the shit out of fastballs this year.
I’m looking forward to it.
