    Yeah, cheating in baseball almost always carries a heavy stigma. About the only ones who got away with it were the spitballers/scuffers.

    "Blatant cheating" used to mean a corked bat.

    A MLB punishment more severe than this would be what, the Black Sox?

    I'm also guessing the Astros won't owe Hinch or Luhnow's salaries.

    Danny Ford and Clemson's 1981 national championship in football nod in agreement.

    So it's fine to cheat and win a title. Until titles are taken away, there's still too much incentive to cheat.

    Pitino, O'Brien, Fisher and Boeheim and fans are still upset over all their vacated wins? You can't unring the bell.
