    Yeah, this post leans to the "benefit of the doubt". Nope. They have lied every single step of the way. Luhnow is a liar. Hench is a liar. Beltran is a liar. If Altuve says that water is wet, I wouldn't believe him.

    But, just to play your game:
    1. It is possible that every player wasn't wearing a device on every at bat, or every game.
    2. Baseball players in general are stupid. Altuve just hit a pennant-winning home run. Altuve understands the dummies on the team a) might not know his buzzer is on (see 1. above) or b) may forget in the heat of the moment.

    It was revving and humming right along until crashing head-first into a brick wall at "miasma" ...

    Frigging Chapman on the mound. And Altuve is sitting on a changeup.

    Benefit of the doubt my ass.

    Passan got the same memo that Mendoza and Kurkjian got.

    I think it'll happen
    I think it'll happen on Opening Day, his first at-bat, regardless of who's on the mound

    I have to think somebody at MLB offices is glad people are talking about baseball in mid-January, whatever the circumstances.

    I hope the first pitch gets thrown into the dugout. They all knew, every single one of them.
