    Just a little part of it. It's going to be a tough pill to swallow for a while.

    Whatís going to be tough to swallow for a while? The fact that Houston won the 2017 World Series? Someday youíll get over it

    Ahhh, you so funny...long time. I'm talking about the opposing players feeling slighted. Personally, I could care less about Houston however the World Series win will always be tainted for the Stros.

    Nah.... the championship is what it is. A championship.

    All the titty babies can cry that itís tainted til the cows come home but At the end of the day theyíre still the champs.

    We all know things like this were going on across the league. Boston and NY have already been caught, and Boston won the WS in 2018, when they were known to have cheated. Is that ďtaintedĒ too?

    Itís really not. Itís the most tainted championship since the Black Sox. Your whataboutism is perplexing.

    You can call it tainted if you want. But the fun and excitement through the season will always be remembered !!!

    Lol i donít care at all about the Red Sox in 18. Iím just asking if he sees it the same way. I think it would be equally stupid to do so.

    MLB needed a scapegoat, just like they needed bonds and McGuire and just like they blamed the ball manufacturer for the juiced balls...

    Your naivety if you think this isnít happening across the league is perplexing...

    I cannot imagine a team less likable than the Houston Astros right now. Even as a lifelong Rangers fan, I never had anything against the Astros ó even when we were beating the brakes off them and when they were beating the brakes off us. Hell, I wanted them to win the 2005 WS so bad.

    But if there was even a semblance of sympathy or goodwill left coming into this season, it's been spent already, and it won't be enough to fuel any kind of redemption tour. This group is so unlikable, you can't even root for them as the villains. They're not even fun to watch as the bad guys. And poor Dusty is letting himself be dragged along, coming to the defense of a team he has no real connection to. It comes off as pandering more than genuine. Seems silly and unbelievable.

    The only redeeming, entertaining quality about the Astros is the possibility of some merciless vigilante justice being dished out on any given night. It'll get worse if/when fans are allowed back too ... even if it's not until the 2021 season.

    They should hire hinch and luhnow back, embrace the hate and just go back to kicking everyoneís ass mercilessly again. We donít need anyone outside of Houston to like the Astros

    Lol not having Hinch and Luhnow isnít keeping the Astros from kicking everyoneís ass right now. And there isnít anything to do but embrace the hate, because it isnít going anywhere. Itíll follow these players, right or wrong, for the rest of their careers.
