Default Advanced metrics or sign stealing?

I hope the 'advanced' stat crowd will at least consider that the shining example of the methodology had success that was not based on those metrics but instead on stealing signs. That should be the biggest takeaway from this so we can get the game back within the foul lines

Were the Twins and Yankees stealing signs, too? They hit more home runs than the Astros.

Well in fairness, we know the Twins have cheated in the past to increase home run totals. So it wouldn't shock me if they were involved, but I have no proof.

There is a LOT of smoke surrounding the Yankees. The idea that the Astros and Red Sox were the only teams doing this is preposterous.

At least we donít have to worry about Robin or Ricky orchestrating something like this, so Iím pretty sure weíre clean.
