CLEVELAND, Ohio — Houston’s three-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians in the American League Division Series has come under scrutiny in the last several days after word broke that Major League Baseball investigated allegations of cheating against the defending champions.
Following the Tribe’s Game 3 loss, a few Indians players alluded to certain perceived “advantages” the Astros had throughout the series. At times, it appeared Houston hitters knew what pitch was coming next.
In this week’s podcast, cleveland.com Indians beat writers Paul Hoynes and Joe Noga discuss whether or not there is an acceptable level of cheating in the big leagues, or if something needs to change.
Hoynsie and Joe also look ahead to the end of the World Series and the beginning of free agency and the roster decisions that face Indians president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti, general manager Mike Chernoff and manager Terry Francona.
