There have been multiple instances of similar swindling, defrauding, scamming, flimflamming, hoodwinking, fleecing, shafting and video-sign-stealing chicanery in modern and pre-modern times.

Houston's players were mostly mum Saturday about the fallout from the team's sign-stealing scandal.

Pitchers have been breaking baseball's rules in plain sight for decades.


Dave Martinez on rookie Carter Kieboom as Nats’ third baseman: ‘He can do the job’

The Nationals manager addressed the few unresolved questions of the offseason, such as what will happen at third base and who will platoon at first with Eric Thames.

The free agent first baseman said he's "not worried" about the status of his contract negotiations with the Nationals.

Josh Donaldson lands with the Twins — and outside the NL East

Donaldson was pursued by the Twins, Nationals and Braves this winter, and the sweepstakes took him to the American League.

Alyssa Nakken, a former standout softball player at Sacramento State, has worked in the Giants’ organization since 2014 and will be tasked with “helping to build a winning culture in the clubhouse,” according to Manager Gabe Kapler.

Beltrán, who played for the 2017 Astros and was named manager of the Mets in November, becomes the latest domino to fall in the wake of the MLB report.

How and when did the Astros start stealing signs, how were they caught, and everything else you need to know.

“Baseball Brit” Joey Mellows and “Pitching Ninja” Rob Friedman are set to launch the podcast “Long Toss” as Mellows returns for another year of travel and baseball research.

Mike Fiers revealing the Astros’ sign-stealing “didn’t sit well with me,” said Mendoza, who also works in the Mets’ front office.

The decision to part ways with manager Alex Cora, the team said Wednesday, was “tough” but ultimately “easy.”

  • Perspective

Though the discipline given to the Astros’ front office for stealing signs is appropriate, it doesn’t square with letting off the players who led the scheme.

Cora, who was the Astros’ bench coach in 2017, was named 11 times in the statement from MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred.

Rose, banned by Major League Baseball since 1989 for betting on games, doesn't think it's "fair" that those who benefited directly from the scheme have not been punished while Astros management was hit hard.

Every team had the tools and the motive to cheat. Why did no one pay attention?

  • Perspective

In hammering Houston and its officials, MLB sends the right message about what matters.

The unprecedented penalty reflects the sport’s shock and disgust at a scandal that goes to the heart of its integrity.

Tempers flared earlier in the game, and the former MLB player erupted after being hit by a pitch.

The young girl was struck by a foul ball in May off the bat of Chicago’s Albert Almora Jr., who was visibly distraught afterward.

The 34-year-old recently agreed to significant contract restructuring, and a run-in with a wild boar could explain why.

  • Perspective

It is now clear Flood’s omission from the hall isn’t a mere oversight. It is an invalidation of its historical representation.
