I'm looking forward to July 3rd:  Bean an Astro Day. 

 

First away game is against the Athletics.  I'm strongly leaning towards witnessing the warm welcome Oakland is sure to give the first Astros batter, live.

Beaning the batters isn't a punishment.  Their players sullied the sport.  They need to receive a real punishment to deter future cheating.  Bregman and Altuve and everyone else who participated need to be suspended the same as players who get caught using PEDs.  The commissioner's decision not to punish the players who did the cheating was chicken **** and just invited more cheating.

I agree. With the new story that Tony Kemp refused to join the sign stealing scam when he was called up in September 2017, it's obvious MLB did a ****ty job investigating this. MLB didn't need the players involved cooperation to figure out the cheating scam. There were plenty of players not involved that could provide information that the scheme had actually occurred. Once the players involved were identified, they should have been given 2 options: Cooperate & get a 1 year suspension; Don't cooperate & receive a lifetime ban.

 

The Astros ****ed with the integrity of the game. That, to me, is the worst thing you can do as a player or organization. HOU fired the people who let it happen. MLB did nothing to the players who actually did the cheating. Manfred needs to resign.

Yeah I don't agree with beaning them. All you're doing is putting them on base which is exactly what they want.

 

I'd rather Stras strike their asses out and dominate...just like he did in the World Series.

With all things considered.  From the never die mentality the entire postseason run.  Being down and out multiple times and slaying the biggest cheaters in history.... 2019 Washington Nationals = GREATEST TEAM OF ALL-TIME ❤️

The more the Astros talk, the more I think they’re completely deserving of having their championship vacated. Players need to be suspended. MLB needs to put the team up for sale. Listening to their owner the other day, it’s clear where their organizational culture comes from. No accountability.

Correa really just used the word "audacity" while defending his team from criticism...

I was totally fine with the Astros accepting their punishment and moving on until they got to spring training and got in front of cameras. It’s abundantly clear nobody on that team feels any bit of remorse or accountable for their mistakes. They’re defensive and bristle at criticism. They have zero right to stand up for themselves. 
 

Take their title. Sell their team.

Wow, every single hot post on r/baseball is about the Astros. They've somehow managed to screw this apology up so badly that we're still talking about the scandal like it's breaking news three months later.

won the world series, arrived early into training. big year coming for Mr. Robles

People forget that Robles was actually a higher touted prospect than Soto. If he ever gets his bat going, with his already Gold Glove caliber glove...look out.

...and Robles was coming off a pretty significant elbow/wrist injury before last year started. He missed most of the 2018 season with that injury (hurt in April, 2018 not sure when he returned). You could see the rust at the beginning of last year. He only got better at the plate, on the bases & in the field during the season. I'm really looking forward to a healthy Robles this year.

Tony Kornheiser is an embarrassment to our city. At least we can claim that Wilbon is from Chicago. Both of them should know enough to ride off into the sunset.

the worst part is watching their deterioration in real time. They were not always like this, they used to be genuinely funny & more important, insightful. They were a huge part of my late childhoold/early adult years, to see them reduced to what they have become is sad to me.

Damn shame. Altuve was my favorite player. Now it's hard to really know how good he even is, and how far back this even goes (my gut says the rabbit hole goes even deeper than they're leading us to believe).

Let's see him batting much higher in the lineup. His defense is already really good to great. If he can get himself on base with his speed along with Turner/Eaton. That makes up for some age after the 5th batting spot.

My hope is we bring in a guy like Barrett late in the game and let him bean Altuve or Correa right in the ass. Totally worth the suspension. I'm sure we can start a gofundme for all the pitchers who take one for the fans :ols:
