The General Manager's meeting was hit with a bombshell with reports surfacing that the Houston Astros are being investigated for using cameras at home to steal signs during their 2017 World Series run.
This overshadowed a piece of news that will have a bigger impact going forward. MLB admitted that it is impossible for it to get a consistent baseball. This means that the balls could fluctuate between being homerun friendly to pitcher friendly.
There were comments by the players that the ball did not carry during the playoffs like it did during the regular season.
This will put GMs in a bind. How does one construct a team without knowing how the ball will behave. Build a team based upon power and it might be countered because of the ball. The same holds true for those teams built around pitching.
