Were the Pittsburgh Pirates Victims of the Houston Astros Cheating Ring?

The story of the MLB off-season has been the Houston Astros and their cheating ring. What started as a complicated sign stealing system that helped the Astros win the 2017 World Series, has evolved into one of the biggest scandals in the history of professional sports.

Astros manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Lunhow have both lost their jobs and face bans from baseball. Due to their role when they were a coach/player for the Astros, Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora and New York Mets manager Carlos Beltran, who never even got to manage a game with the Mets, also lost their jobs.
