The Mitchell report didn’t intentionally exclude anyoneWhat have I said that's untrue?
The Sox and Astros are guilty of two very different things and you seem to be trying to discredit the Sox WS run when there’s basically no proof of them doing anything of material impact during the playoff run in 2018. And there’s no way to quantify the impact of knowing a sign. If people want to complain about the Astros openly signaling right before pitches in a playoff series that the Yankees lost, that’s fair enough. But people keep whining about the Red Sox for something that every team in baseball was doing (including the Yankees, it’s just that they’re both among the teams that got snitched on). It didn’t win Boston a World Series.
Not necessarily aimed at you, but using a few games worth of numbers to justify an accusation of cheating is ridiculous. Anyone who has ever worked in a data driven job would tell you that there is zero credibility with that few points of data.
