Goodness. It was one player and he apologized. Every team has made mistakes. Quit reaching with every minor infraction.

I am also confident there are plenty of things that could blowout the Astros sign-stealing scandal if they occurred nowadays.

You're aware that Astros fans are STILL tweeting that image at Yu, aren't you? Not really "one player" when it's excused and promoted by fans.
Keep reaching buddy. One day the Astros will make up for however they wronged you.

You want to tell us who you root for?


He's a complete dweeb who spends every waking moment trying to get the Astros because he's upset his team has never won a ring. He refuses to reply every time I ask him if he's wiped out the Rangers' late 90s division titles from the record books after it was found out they were loaded with steroids. Total crickets.

You're talking about a guy who's in his mid 30s and still wears a glove to games...without kids.


He and Danny Vermin have Astros Derangement Syndrome.

My son is Chinese, and that kind of stunk when we had to see that. Sure, we can forgive somebody, but I just wondered if he was raised by baboons in Cuba.

No, but he's a complete meathead.

Still waiting on you to erase your Rangers' titles. So weird how you keep avoiding doing so.

Are you denying that you're a Rangers fan? If so, who are you a fan of? The level of jealousy one has to have toward a team to post at the rate you do on this subject makes it pretty easy to tell, genius.

Sorry, take it up with someone who feels like engaging your ad hominem and tu quoque BS. Who I'm a fan of is irrelevant to Astros cheating, and players across the league are mocking them for it. WS winners, all stars, etc. SO there goes your little "jealous" deflection. This will be my last post directed to you.

It's not a deflection. I can cite tons of "all stars and HOF's" who've gone on record about how pervasive this is across MLB. Of course, you already know this, but people like you need a villain to attack to feel better about yourself...which days a lot about you... considering you derive personal self worth from this stuff.

Your own team was doing the same thing. They just sucked. Sorry. But yes, deflect from answering by pointing to my PERSONAL ATTACKS....you're the victim.

What a complete ****ing dweeb.

It's amazing how unified the players are in condemning the Astros. EVERYONE is on the same side of this argument and that almost never happens about anything. And the hatred wouldn't be nearly as strong if the Astros weren't so damned smug about it. Kind of like their fans.

I'm sure there are a lot of players who either don't care or didn't think what the Astros did was that egregious.

But, there's no value in them coming out and saying that.

Yeah, even when players were caught doping, you may have one or two guys say something. A handful of pitchers threw at Barry Bonds. But this has had a LOT of players come out and condemn it. Heck, even in the middle of an at bat, Rizzo made fun of it.

On the other side, though, some players have dismissed it. They're just outnumbered by those who have said something.

Astros are currently number 3 favorite to win it all again. I guess Vegas knows we must be finding another way to "cheat" this year, bc 'everyone' else knows we can only be good by cheating.

This guy. "I don't listen to Harold Reynolds, he's an idiot" Now "how about the interview with three pitchers. One that loathes the Astros and the other two from the Yankees".

I watched some of that video. One of those pitchers is borderline unstable and another other sounds like a very bright individual.

Neither. It's irrelevant to this discussion. I don't know why this is such a difficult concept to grasp.

If you want to talk about the Rangers, doping in the 80s/90s, etc., you have plenty of avenues to do so. This thread is about the Astros cheating scandal. Pointing out "other teams cheated before!" doesn't excuse the cheating of the Astros, no matter how delusional you are and how much you clutch your hat or whatever. Sorry that I'm not enabling your little tu quoque arguments. Looks like you'll have to stick with insulting the Rangers and saying, "Well, MLB is cheating so it's okay".

Nobody said they were a bad team. In fact, most people have said they were good enough to win it all in 2017 without cheating, making the cheating even more disappointing because detracts from the great stories of guys like Jose Altuve, Game 5, etc.

On another note, I don't see how Vegas has the Yankees ahead of the Astros with all the injuries they're facing.

As an Astros fan I can say objectively that vegas is probably correct with having the Yankees ahead of the Astros. IMO they are probably projecting full health by the time october comes around.

I guess that's true, other than Severino.

But while Stanton will get healthy, he'll inevitably get hurt again. And Judge is a lot like Yao Ming- his body is just to big and awkward to NOT get hurt.

In other words, the "cheating" had no impact of what happened in 2017. I agree. Especially when other teams we beat on the way to the championship were doing the same thing. We agree!

Saying they were good enough ain't the same thing as saying the outcome would have been the same. No one knows because they cheated. The Astros were as stupid as the fat RG who takes an easy shot on a DB 10 yards behind the play and nullifies a 70 yard TD. They deserve everything they get on stupidity alone.

You're making stuff up.

I'm saying who I'm a fan of is irrelevant. Only spoke of the Rangers because it's hilarious how Astros fans try so hard to dismiss all criticism as Rangers fans.

Again, this thread is about the Astros cheating. Who I'm a fan of is irrelevant.

I'd quit wasting my breath. SquirrleyDan is either so delusional that he ACTUALLY believes the straw man arguments he attacks, or he intentionally mischaracterizes posts/arguments. Either way, it's not really worth engaging.

His argument is literally "other teams do it!" which is why he's trying to desperately to find who I'm a fan of- so he can say, "THAT TEAM CHEATED IN X YEAR!!" But tu quoque arguments don't really hold water when we're talking Astros cheating, so he can keep asking and I'll keep laughing at that attempt.
