This article kinda tells me that the commissioner isn`t serious about keeping this game clean. Only doing what he had to do to get this behind him. He neverreally did a thorough investigation in how deep it went & which teams were doing it. Batters should be allowed to be checked for a electronic piece before they bat & be penalized if they are cheating

This can only lead to one thing. Signs being eliminated. Wouldn't be surprised if an earpiece system like they do in the NFL for QBs is introduced, it's the only real solution to an obvious problem that's clearly not going away

Baseball has an integrity problem. If you have been a baseball fan for 60 years plus, you have seen this previously. All one can do is pull over and watch a town ball game and visit the local high school fields. The seriously addicted fans, like myself, continue to watch MLB and harvest joy from the pitcher-batter matchups and enjoy the feats of athleticism, but the dollar hangs like a banner over the game. Sigh.
