Jimmy O'Brien (the one who put together all the videos of the Astros) joins Petros and Money to talk about the videos he uncovered on the Astros sign stealing scandal.
How he found the games with the whistling:
In the report in the Athletic, we had the Mike Fiers confess and the reliever on the White Sox said he heard it when he pitched there in Houston. Once you know what to look for, it is damning and it is right in your face. It is very easy to find those banging sounds from the 2017 season.
On how much of an advantage the Astros:
The strike out-walk ratio just in 2014, 2015, 2016 they were 15th, 15th, and 14th out of 15 teams. In 2017, 2018, 2019 they jump up to 1st place, 2nd place, and 1st place. It was just a big shift in the strike out-walk ratio. The Astros are like comically better than the rest of the league.
