    Doesn't bother me at all if they're able to figure it out by something the pitcher is doing or whatever. Good for them.
    If a team is using technology to steal signs, that's not cool.

    I agree with all of this.

    Bregman, Correa, and Cole are all very likeable.

    Anxiety and depression are 2 very different things. Please don't ever again put those in the same sentence as if heckling for anxiety is the same as heckling someone for having depression.

    Greinke has dealt with both anxiety and depression. Yankees fans heckled him about both.

    I'm all for heckling but obviously, in a family environment, there's a line and I assume that at least the fan that was ejected crossed it. Who knows what precisely was said but I'd like to think the Yankees handled the situation to the best of their ability. Man oh man would it suck to get kicked out of a playoff game before it even started though.

    I guess this will make it all the more painful for you when the Astros knock the Yankees the **** out of contention this weekend. Your subsequent meltdown, if you actually pop your head in here after this happens, should be quite enjoyable.

    Yankees security can be pretty strict about people acting like hooligans. We're talking about like 2 people of 30,000. I don't care much either way. F Greinke, F the Astros, Go Yankees

    Astros are being accused of using technology (probably multiple cameras) to steal signs.

    SI's senior writer thinks it's fine even with technology. "If you're not cheating, then you're not trying." Jim Rome

    '"Its not a new argument, but if the Astros are stealing signs, their opponents just need better signs. Its as simple as that. If your code is easy to crack, the problem is on you, not the codebreaker.

    I dont think its any secret they do it," a source told the New York Post this week. They bang pipes (to relay signs). We have heard they have cameras around the park and that some way of communicating originates from their bullpen. Just look at their home record.'

    https://www.sportingnews.com/us/mlb/...61vkzuue5cd3q5

    My take is MLB has rules against using technology to steal signs, so if THE ASTROS gets caught, then they should pay a $50,000 fine and lose multiple draft picks. I suppose that is some consolation if the series doesn't go to game 7.

    "Major League Baseball Regulations do, however, prohibit the use of electronic equipment during games and state that no such equipment 'may be used for the purpose of stealing signs or conveying information designed to give a Club an advantage.' Despite this clear Regulation, the prevalence of technology, especially the technology used in the replay process, has made it increasingly difficult to monitor appropriate and inappropriate uses of electronic equipment."

    Do fans know the difference between heckling and attacking someone with a mental illness? I hope none of those dumb *** Yankee fans who were chanting at him have to suffer from anxiety or depression one day. Coming from someone who had a cousin and a good friend commit suicide from severe depression (one of which I was in the other room when it happened), it disgusts me when I see fans make light of it.

    It's immaterial how much money Greinke makes as well. That has nothing to do with a person's well being emotionally.

    I agree. Using technology to steal signs is extremely low-class and goes against the integrity of the game. Not what I'd call an admirable organization. Pathetic, indeed.

    Also, Jim Rome is a total clown lol
