    The Astros Demise

    Interesting piece on the Houston Astros and their fall from grace - https://www.theguardian.com/sport/20...-sign-stealing

    Parralells perhaps with the Australian Cricket Team and Essendon and how culture is critical to organisations.

    Interesting article & thanks for posting. The article says the Astro's had a camera at Minute Maid Park doing the spying but all games in the World Series was won by the away team.

    As anfo mentioned it's a great article and shows how far some teams will go to gain an advantage

    Re: The Astros Demise

    I finally read Astroball last year and have been taking a keen interest in all things Astro’s since.

    Hard to believe a book so focusesd on the organisation and people in it - and offering opinion/dissection of 1000000 different issues somehow missed this one. Between this and the Cards “spying”/hacking saga, a sport that was already ‘in trouble’ is now in more trouble.
    What should I tell her? She's going to ask.
