Hok Talk: What if we just made sign-stealing legal?

You all probably thought we were done with this topic by now. But then COVID-19 happened and baseball didn’t and I was allowed more time to think about this topic than perhaps I should have been. And I’ve decided the only reasonable course of action, based on general opinion and also the way MLB has handled the entire thing, is to make sign-stealing via technology to be made entirely legal.

There are two ways to stop someone from doing a thing; you can make it physically impossible with some sort of barrier or you can impose penalties on it that are so harsh that people are dissuaded from doing it.
