Tigers debate lively baseballs, stolen signs

In the past, when the technology wasn’t as sharp, when there wasn’t HD capability and every facial tick or expression could be seen from the center-field camera, stealing signs was a respected art in the game.

Technology has taken the art out of it.

“It’s not about gamesmanship anymore,” Verlander said. “It used to be, if you got my sign, good for you. When you are standing on second base, before HD and all of that, you couldn’t see specific signs the catcher was throwing down unless the camera was right on him.

“Now you can see so good, you see exactly what he is putting down. The gamesmanship is no longer there.”

Both Verlander and Ausmus believe MLB will take a page out of football and allow managers and catchers headset technology so they can communicate verbally.

“I don’t think that’s a bad idea,” Verlander said. “I think it’s a good idea.”
