    Houston Astros or Houston Asterisks?

    So-o-o-o-o...The Houston Asterisks?
    Works for me!
    I must have gained twenty pounds eating all those delicious LA Dodger Donuts.
    (and of course those famous Dodger Dogs!)

    Maybe the Astros should pay for my Weight Watchers diet, to say nothing about my poor suffering Cubbies fan wife
    Karen having to console me when we lost the World Series.
    (which we apparently should have WON!)

    One famous and beloved Dodgers fan who goes by the moniker "Bluebeard" wants to file a class action lawsuit!

    Dodger fans or Dodger haters...weigh in, what do YOU think should be done?
    Remember, Pete Rose is still BANNED for LIFE from baseball, shouldn't we insist on the same standards for an entire team that cheats at baseball?

    Pete should be reinstated. Time served.

    Houston seems to have lost last year to an inferior team because their cheating resulted in misinformation being passed on to hitters once the opposition caught on to their scheme. (my theory)

    In other news....Dodgers are clearly the best team this past decade to not win the WS.

    The Peter Rose/Astros comparison is an interesting one. Who hurt the game more and do the punishments align with the damage to the game ?

    MLB has no plans to strip Astros, Red Sox of World Series titles, says commissioner Rob Manfred

    Other than being reminded of Manfred Man, I have no comment on this article. But, then again, I am a guy who believes Lance should have been able to keep his seven TDF titles, even though he cheated like a mother****er. He only cheated better than the rest, much like the BoSox and Stros.

    I think the commissioner stating that Houston would have to change their name to the Houston Patriots was just a little too much.
