I can't remember a team I've had a stranger relationship with. It's like I want to hate them but I can't.

You're not spending enough time looking at Pedroia's face. You'll get there!

It's just that a month ago this team was such a collection of unlikeable dicks that was spinning down the drain, but now they are like the complete opposite of that. I feel like the infusion of Devers has a lot to do with it but still.

Nothing changes attitudes like winning. Don't forget Nunez, too: he's crushing at the top of the order and putting in great at-bats.

And, obviously, Ewing theory:

I wanted to post a picture of Ortiz when the magic number got to 34, but now I see it's already at 27. Oh well.

I think using external sources and electronics to relay signs is a little over the line.

Teams have been using video feeds to steal signs for years, obviously if you get busted you get busted but I don't think this is that out of the ordinary. What even is the penalty for this?

Although this could get Farrell sacked.

Yes, this is an outrage and shakes the game to it's core. I'm disgusted as a fan.

Naw, they've already pulled out the hilarious "Dombrowski and Farrell had no idea this was going on!" excuse.

The trainer involved will get thrown under the bus and maybe fined or suspended or fired. Everyone else will get away with it.

Maybe they'll lose a draft pick or something.

I mean Dombrowski, maybe, but there's no way Farrell would have been unaware of this.

Isn't there a "no cell phones / communications devices in the dugout" rule? I feel like it's gonna get escalated because of that.
