With two recent World Series champions involved, baseball's sign-stealing controversy now takes its place alongside some other famous cheating scandals in sports. Houston manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow were suspended by Major League Baseball for the team's use of electronics to steal signs. Then they were fired. The Boston Red Sox are also under investigation for sign stealing. The situation brings to mind the New England Patriots' "Spygate" and SMU football's "death penalty" - along with a number of doping scandals at both the international level and in major American sports.
