FINALLY. Finally the day has arrived. Major League Baseball has handed down their punishment for the cheating scumbag Houston Astros. GM Jeff Luhnow is gone for a year. That smug cheating scumbag AJ Hinch is gone for a year. $5 million fine. Loss of their first and second round draft picks for 2020 and 2021. It's a punishment. I wish it was more harsh. I don't think Hinch should be allowed to manage ever again. He should be banned for life. He should probably be thrown in prison, but that's just how I see it. What a smug asshole.
A $5 million fine is nothing to a baseball team. The draft picks hurt for sure, but they have enough talent as it is to survive. The biggest part of all this will be that no Astros player of that team can brag about winning a World Series. No one is going to take them seriously. Bregman can't say a word. Correa. Altuve. No one. You cheated your way to a championship. There's no disputing that. Major League Baseball just launched an entire investigation and found that everything they were accused of was actually true. The stink will stay with them for as long as they live and after.
Next up will be Alex Cora. LETS GO!!! Beltran was a player at the time so he's not being hit with anything. The report says that this was mostly player-driven, with the exception of Cora. He should be getting a year as well I suspect.
P.S. Shout out Jomboy for being the driving force in all of this with his great work of grabbing the cheating videos.
