    That won't bail them out, it just delays it. People won't have forgotten they cheated by May.

    I don't think it will be with the same intensity. Once it's off the front page people start to move on. And at this rate there may not be baseball in May.

    Re: Astros cheating investigation

    Things are going to get so seriously bad in this country in the coming days, weeks, and months, that when baseball comes back it's going to feel like mainlining pure happiness and relief. The Astros are going to skate on the whole thing. We're going to be comparing tens - even hundreds - of thousands of deaths to cheating in a sport, and nobody is going to want to feel outrage over something so comparatively small after the coming ordeal.

    I hope you are wrong about the number of deaths. But yes, I do agree the reaction to the Astros will be a lot less then had this health emergency not happened.

    If 2020 is played without fans people need to remember this for 2021.

    Unfortunately the fans probably won't care. Will be to happy just to go to the games again. Doubt there will be much negative reaction to the Astros. Maybe if they come to YS early in the season.

    The Astros cheating will be totally forgotten if there is ever baseball with fans again.

    No way - there will be fans in various parks that will probably be banging trash cans in 2030.

    You can't really believe fans being negative will bother these professionals. In general fans seem to think that their behavior has impact thus they pat themselves on the back if their team is successful. Nothing could be further from the truth. The only role fans play is making ownership and players extremely wealthy.
