Being a Dodgers fan I wish MLB would take away the world series title away from the 2017 Astros. MLB finally just came down hard on them today. Owner just fired the GM and coach. Boston Red Sox is next. But when teams cheat in college sports they back out all the wins I just wish they would do that same with the Astros.


Go Dodgers

It is about time and maybe this is something they have to work harder to prevent.

Being a Phillies fan, they had this same issue when they were dominating. They looked awesome. Scoring runs at will, hitting everything for a couple of years. Then they were accused of stealing signs and the hitting just stopped. It was like a different team after that. Could be just a coincidence, could be age., steroid era was ending and maybe they just didn't get caught, who knows? Now, I see that the same thing happened to the Astros. They were accused and had to stop whatever it is they did and then all of a sudden they didn't look so dominating in this post season.

As a Red Sox fan these events are certainly making me think about our 2018 title. Our Manager was on the 2017 Astros. Hope we're not next but...
I'm not one that likes an uneven playing field even if it benefits my guys, That would make me a Patriots fan.

was just watching MLB channel and they said Cora is for sure going to get suspended for this year and it will be interesting to see what ownership does to him. And yes he was an assistant coach for the Astros in 2017 so that is where he learned it from for sure.

Wouldn't it be crazy if the Astros and Bosox made it to the ALCS in a year their Managers and GM's were suspended?

For me I have that... whoever's playing the Yankees thing going on and the Astro's have never really bothered me before, but cheaters...hmmmm
and if it's my guys too... how do I deal with that will be my issue going forward. I've been a Sox fan as long as I've been a Ram fan....

yeah it is unfortunate for everyone involved but I would like to see them take away the 2017 title from the astros. I know that won't happen but it should.
