I love this. I hope the cheating stays with them for the rest of their careers, and for Altuve and Verlander I might go as far as to say it should be a disqualifier for the Hall of Fame.

Every single player that cheated or knew of the cheating and did nothing about it should consider themselves lucky that they are still allowed to play.

The pain that the cheating caused for fans and players is real, and I think it's absolutely bullshit that there was no punishment for the players.

As much as I want to hate the Astros, I can't help but have part of me that is really rooting for Dusty Baker to get a ring.

Agreed. But my hate for the cheating Astros is greater than my wish for Dusty to win.

I would love for Dusty to get a ring but the cheating Astros don't even deserve a chance to make that happen.

I hate that no players were in trouble. Not surprised but it still sickens me.

Hey, did you guys hear that the White Sox might hire Tony LaRussa as manager? I mean, the guy is nearly 80.

I suppose he is the same age as both of our Presidential candidates. What a messed up state of affairs.

Every time the Dodgers have another playoff failure, 2017 hurts that much more. It's just unbelievable that the league let the Astros tank for years, cheat their way to a world series win, and get off without punishment. A fucking embarrassment.

This has to be a reinsdorf play that Hahn is just humoring his boss with.
