Astros shuld be stripped of their World Series title.

Cheating is cheating. It does not matter whether the cheating was instrumental in victory or not. The offense to the game is not a matter of how effective the cheating scheme was - it is the integrity of the game that is at stake. What happens if the next time there is gambling involved? If there ever was a slippery slope this is it. This scheme was condoned and, it seems, encouraged by the most senior management of the Astros. Pete Rose has been banned from baseball for life and the HOF for betting - not cheating. In my mind, what Jeff Luhnow and AJ Hinch did does more damage to the game than Pete's betting. They should both be banned from baseball for life to make an example for the next fool.
