I think if there is another mechanism that allowed a team to see the catcher’s signs and signal to the batter quickly enough for the batter to receive the signal prior to the pitch being thrown, that would be just as bad. 
 

Is it feasible for a guy with binoculars in center field to perceive the catcher’s sign and signal the batter? I guess it’s possible. 
 

On the other hand, if you have a guy watching the game on tv and decoding the signals when you have a runner on second, and then later in the game your runner on second is signaling the pitch based on what he is seeing, that doesn’t seem problematic to me. It’s easily addressed by the pitcher and catcher changing the signs. 
 

Long story short, signaling from the dugout or the stands what the pitch is going to be isn’t ok. A player on the field signaling based on what he is seeing is fine. 
 

At least that is how I see it. 
 

What is the story with the Apple Watch procedure. Was it a guy watching the broadcast and sending a text to the watch, and person wearing the watch would whistle or something (similar to the bang on the trash can)? That also isn’t ok, but seems a bit harder to pull off given the delay and the use of a middle man between the observer and the batter.

Lou Whitaker said he didn’t try to figure out what was coming.  He just wanted to see the ball and hit it.

The strikeout rate of George Springer stuck out to me.

Players do this all the time. Why would one player benefit so greatly and not others?

The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of moving Bryant Packard to 1st base full time, and let him just rake.  I think he can handle it.

yeah, strikes me as a Billy Butler-type of hitter (before he started to suck).

With Ozuna signing, barring any trades of picks or sign stealing fallout, the draft order is set. Tigers pick 1, 38, 63, 75, 103, 133, 162 and every 30 after.

Should load up our system pretty good. If we don't screw it up.

I watched this guy throwing a bit yesterday, and hear he can reach 95 (or even higher) as a HS Junior.  I wonder how common that is.

While not in this year's draft, I imagine he get some attention next year.  If he chooses college, he has already made arrangements with Vanderbilt.

That stat about doobies smoked per day has me cautious. Or perhaps intrigued. And a little bit hungry
