    You’ll get over it. It’s not anything that stands out or something I’d look for when watching us play

    dude is such a hypocritical piece of shit
    tanks to get good players
    then cheats to win the WS
    and now he’s saying the cheating didn’t impact the game and that they would have won the WS regardless

    We were having a discussion at work the other day about how the Astros should be hit relentlessly by pitchers this year. One guy said “as long as its in the ribs”, others agreed, then I chimed in “nope. They should get hit in the head.” Some laughed it off, but I wasn’t joking.

    Fuck the Astros.

    The material Majestic used for shirseys was the absolute worst t-shirt material of all time. It was like wearing a piece of cardboard, I’m tryna show these gains not look like I starched my shirt to death. Hoping Nike makes cooler ones.

    Some notes from Roberts today/yesterday:
    - Looks like LF will be a Joc/Pollock platoon (good news)
    - Mookie will lead off, play RF
    - Graterol will be in the pen
    - About 8-9 guys competing for the starting rotation

    For anyone who heard that abortion of an “apology” from the Astros, I’d like to send my condolences to your wars and brains.

    That actually made me angrier and really want MLB to suspend Altuve and Bregman and Correa for a season and award the World Series to the Dodgers.

    Whoever in the Astros’ FO that reviewed and approved of this should be shot.

    What seems a crying shame to me, is that by the time he is illegible for it, Altuve's douchebaggery in this all, may just be an afterthought, forgotten about, by the Hall of Fame voters.
    CKWG eluded to this in the past when referencing Bonds and his roid use, because of a turnover in the writers to a younger group, not so offended by drug use.
    Idk, it would be a Bad Day at Black Rock in my world should the imp go to the Hall.

    I question all his “accomplishments”. He’s damaged goods forever.

    Justice has to be served on the field. Maybe then the spineless piece of shit commissioner will be forced to do something so that pitchers stop head hunting during every Houston game.

    The title should have been vacated. Would it erase the heartbreak of 2017 for us and Yankees fans? No. But at least there'd be justice and we could move on with all focus on 2020.

    For as long the Astros are listed as champions for 2017, there is no justice.

    MLB's message to everyone: Cheat your ass off. Sports, life, whatever....cheat your way to the top because the worst possible repercussion is a tiny slap on the wrist and a couple of scripted, half-assed apologies.

    This is not me being sarcastic... This is me being proud of this board once again.

    Reading the bile-filled rage at the Astros for what they're doing and saying and not doing and not saying... You fellows are channeling my furious rage and bitterness, and I'm just so fucking proud of you. If some of you were my own sons, I couldn't be more proud.

    Of course, if @irish were my son, I'd cut own vas deferens and then hang myself immediately...

    MLB NOW is really having an MSNBC political analyst on their panel?
    This sport is losing me

    If the Dodgers don't make it to the WS then I want the Astros to win it all.
    And then we can have the real shitstorm happen.
    Let them try to say that we have to move on from the past and celebrate them now that they won 'clean'.
    Nobody will celebrate them.
    They had their storybook written for them after the storm.
    And then they cheated the hearts of all the people who gave them sympathy.
    If they were to win again their own faces will be down.
    They won't be able to enjoy the taste of success.
    It will be bitter in their mouth.
    And in their stomach.

    Then maybe the league will realize their mistake.
    That these players should have had personal penalties and the team organizational penalties.
    Players banned from MLB festivities for 2 years. No All-Star and no Playoff games.
    No gold gloves, no MVP votes, no cy young, no love from the league or their umpires, etc...
    They can play during the regular season but then have to be out of the playoff roster as punishment.
    And this carries over to any team that trades for them or signs them.
    The organization as well cannot have any of its players involved in MLB festivities for 2 years.
    Including players you sign or trade for or that were in your minor leagues. If they put on an Astro uniform they fall under the ban.
    If you lead the league in average, HR and RBI you DO NOT QUALIFY for the triple crown.
    Ok maybe 1 year.
    But there needs to be a punishment so an actual stigma can stick for a while.
    That stigma is the scab that cures the wound made to the game.
    As long as they dont pick at it again.

    Tanking is a strategy in our generation.
    In war it is a strategy.
    In anything else i'm not so sure.
    It looks more and more like a new style of cheating.
    To those of an older generation.

    It's so obvious that MLB is taking a "minimal PR damage" approach to this, as opposed to looking to do the right thing. Having an asterisk or a vacant spot in their list of annual champions would be an admission that fair play is not always an underlying principle in America's pastime.

    Way worst for the integrity of the game than what Pete Rose did.
    Pete was a disorganized gym rat who only really hurt himself.
    The Astros were part of an organized criminal syndicate to defraud other players, owners, and cash paying customers of their rightful rewards.
    The example is that one owner can turn the MLB and all its fans players employees and other owners over and make them their bitch.
    Not a good look for the league.
