    After the ousting of MLB managers and GM, there are other organizations implicated in cheating, as well as, players.

    Rob Manfred could offer players and organizations involved in acting in the "cheating scandal"an option of volunteering their participation.

    By volunteering, there would be an automatic suspension.

    The suspension may be without pay if their organization/owner(s) thinks it necessary.

    If the commissioner does this, it may put the blame on parties involved and take the commissioner off the griddle.

    According to sports radio station banter, the "cheating scandal" was player inspired.

    Would Jose Altuve and other players admit to cheating?

    People were figuring out how to steal signs before the game was even invented.

    I love baseball, but I don't know if there's another sport out there with as much widespread cheating ... from pitchers, to catchers, to batters, to positional players, to the bench, to the fans. It's been like that as long as I can remember.

    Ron Darling on MLB network said he would drill the batter at the plate if the player on 2nd base relayed the signs.

    Is that not part of the home field advantage?

    If he deliberately drills me I’m going to lower my shoulder into his pelvis at 17MPH.
