Cheating in baseball? To paraphrase Socrates, what is cheating?

Is it cheating when . . .
Albert Belle used a corked bat in a game?
Sammy Sosa used a corked bat in batting practice?
George Brett used a bat smeared with pine tar?
The White Sox stole signs using a guy in the centerfield scoreboard at old Comiskey?
Teams excessively watered down the basepaths when the visiting team included a player named Rickey Henderson or Maury Wills?
Gaylord Perry used his favorite pitch?
The pitching mound height is not to major league specifications at a certain ballpark ?
A ball rolling down the third baseline always goes foul at a certain ballpark?
The infield grass is excessively long at a certain ballpark?
A pitcher delivers a pitch with his foot just in front of the rubber?
A runner leaves the basepath to break up a double play?
How about a batter who stands at home plate to admire his home run shot or a team that steals a base with a ten run lead?

Do any of the above make a difference?

The biggest "Giants Legacy of Lies" comes from their own fans that boast about the Giants great history in San Francisco but cant face the fact that SF still has no world championships. They promote the SF years with weak stuff like "we knocked the Dodgers out in '82", "McCovey's line drive SHOULD have gone through", and "the 1993 team was the greatest team never to win a division."

How about the too-small batter's box in Boston?
