Sharjah, UAE – The Athletic has recently released a report on the Houston Astros’ sign-stealing scandal, which rocked Major League Baseball in 2019. The report, by Evan Drellich and Ken Rosenthal, provides new details about how the Astros used technology to steal signs from opposing teams.
The report alleges that the Astros used a center-field camera to steal signs, and then relayed the information to the dugout using a variety of methods, including banging on a trash can. The report also alleges that the Astros’ sign-stealing scheme was more widespread than previously known and that it may have continued into the 2020 season.
The Astros have not yet responded to the report. However, the scandal is likely to reignite the debate about sign-stealing in baseball. In 2019, MLB implemented a number of new rules to crack down on sign-stealing, but it is unclear whether these rules have been effective.
The Athletic’s report is a major development in the Astros’ sign-stealing scandal. It provides new details about the scheme, and it raises questions about whether the Astros have fully cooperated with MLB’s investigation. The report is also likely to reignite the debate about sign-stealing in baseball, and it could lead to further punishment for the Astros.
The report also comes at a time when the Astros are trying to rebuild their reputation. The team has a new manager, Dusty Baker, and a new general manager, James Click. The Astros are also hoping to return to the World Series, which they won in 2017. However, the sign-stealing scandal is likely to continue to haunt the Astros, and it could make it difficult for them to regain the trust of fans and baseball officials.
