Ow! That was quite a punch in the gut, ol'pal! Smile

But all kidding aside ... in my opinion, this is worse than the Black Sox scandal. 2017 WS was stolen from either the Yankees or the Dodgers.
This is worse than the PED players scandal, too!

This affected everyone in the end ... small sample ... did Luis Severino really have a bad playoff appearance in 2017?
How many games did the Astros win against the Yankees at home vs away?
How skewed is Gerrit Cole's actual numbers? How much should the cheating Astros subsidize the Yankees if Cole doesn't go 11-0 by the All-Star break?

I fully believe that the 2017 Astros punishment is not enough.
1) they should be stripped of the 2017 WS title and stripped of the AL Pennant
2) The Dodgers should be awarded the WS title and the pick of any one player they want from the Astros' active roster ... free & paid for by the Astros
3) The Yankees should be awarded the 2017 AL Pennant and the pick of any one player they want from the Astros' active roster ... free & paid for by the Astros
4) Every AL team should be awarded The Astros #1 Draft pick each year until they all got compensated.
5) fine them up the wazoo... $5 million ain't no big thing ... $500 million might make other clubs think twice before messing around.
6) The fans / season ticket holders should be refunded.

I'm done ... for now ( and I didn't curse once Smile )

I guess if I saved used tinfoil and used tea bags instead of old comic books and old baseball cards, the difference between a crazed hoarder and a savvy collector is in that inherent value.
