Happy Rant #16: How Would You Cheat at Baseball?

“If you ain’t cheatin you ain’t trying!” could be the general motto of baseball. Everyone is looking for an edge, and MLB has a long history of successful cheaters: spitballers, sign-stealers, cleats-up sliders, juicers, and green poppers. Just this year we’ve had accusations of sign stealing and one suspension of a pitcher, Michael Pineda, for using pine tar on the ball. In this latest episode of the Happy Rant Stephen Altrogge and I discuss the best ways to cheat at baseball.
