    I think it was tongue-in-cheek since he tried playing morality police before this.

    I don't think most Dodger fans are saying that they want the 2017 World Series trophy. They are saying that Houston doesn't deserve the trophy.

    I still look at A-Rod and think to myself, how the fuck did he get such a cushy job?

    Because in the end, it’s not really about honesty, integrity or purity of sport. It’s about making money. And A-Rod made a ton for himself and others. The biggest cheater of all-time in baseball, but he doesn’t even acknowledge it.

    Bellinger: "I thought Manfred's punishment was weak, giving them immunity. I mean these guys were cheating for three years. I think what people don't realize is Altuve stole an MVP from Judge in '17. Everyone knows they stole the ring from us."

    Damn. It's gonna be an interesting season.

    I would hate to be the Astros on the road this season. Most fans will give them hell and it will be well deserved. Maybe they should add extra security when they play at Yankee Stadium?

    Love what he said, he ain't scurred. Like you said, this should be an interesting season. The Astros are going to have all eyes on them, takes some pressure off other teams but if the Astros somehow win it all this season...wow, that would be a crazy turn of events.

    We don't see them until the last week of the season, remarkably.

    But yeah, they are going to have to run the gauntlet for 5 months. I don't know that the players really comprehend how pissed off people are.

    They are still a talented club, obviously, and they will definitely have an "us vs the world" mentality-Altuve's already giving off that kind of attitude. Like I said though, I don't know if they realize how tough this upcoming season is going to be on them mentally.

    The Astros will hear it from the fans all season long.

    "The Astros refrained from offering any sort of apologies to teams or players they had beaten in 2017, specifically the New York Yankees in the AL championship series and the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series".

    I'm guessing that the Astros will hear it from fans for a long, long time.

    It makes you realize the greatness of Clemens and Bonds. Took all the hate, but still were great.
