Join the discussion at 888-486-9677, questions@townsquaretalk.org or @townsquaretalk.In 2019, a journalist for The Athletic broke the sign-stealing scandal in which Astros players used an in-stadium video to identify opposing catchers signs and banged on trash cans to relay that information to batters at the plate in and after their championship season in 2017.While the sign-stealing scandal may seem like a brazen example of cheating, the line between cheating and gaining a competitive advantage can be blurry. Some rules are arcane, others aren’t enforced…until they are. And sometimes the game itself is patently unfair from the outset.We take a walk through why athletes would risk it all on shady moves.Guest Host:Craig Cohen Executive producer and host of Houston Matters Guest:Evan Drellich Senior Writer at The Athletic, covering Major League Baseball Author of the forthcoming book, Winning Fixes Everything The Rise and Fall of the Houston Astros Town Square with Ernie Manouse is a gathering space for the community to come together and discuss the day’s most important and pressing issues.Audio from today's show will be available after 5 p.m. CT.

The Update with Adam Copeland

Adam Copeland is joined by Athletic MLB Senior Writer Evan Drellich to talk about MLB's decision to move the All Star Game out of Atlanta to Coors Field in Colorado.

The Rookies were able to give a plan that they could execute quickly to set things up for All Star Week. Rob Manfred is in a tough spot and has gotten a lot of backlash over moving the game. Was moving the game a piece of the puzzle to the upcoming collect bargaining this winter? And they talk about if the change to the baseball this season has shown any different results in the first week of the season.You can read all of Evan's great MLB coverage by visiting: https://theathletic.com/author/evan-drellich/And you can follow him on Twitter @EvanDrellich Learn more about your ad choices.
