I don't think it is enough.  Look at what others have had done for less in the MLB.  Pete Rose, and others going further back.   NOT a good lesson to younger players coming up. The best thing was they did get caught, but it should be more of a penalty.  Look at the reputations and records of some excellent players, they cannot get those things back to where they should have been.

Think it is terrible and not a good example for the younger generation.  If you have to cheat why bother.

I think the punishment fit the crime but it is a shame the players involved got off and were not punished at all.

Everyone in baseball steals signs, or tries to. The problem with the Astros is that you can't video tape it, that's just obvious. With that being said, the punishment could have been much worse.
