Of course Bill O'Brien is in favor of the current front office structure of the Texans. He's the one with complete control over personnel and game planning.
The real mistake here is the Texans not firing Bill O'Brien after 24-0.
Houston really sold its soul for the 2017 WS. https://t.co/UD1fPwVCqB
It’s in the official record now — the Astros cheated to win the 2017 WS. From Commish Rob Manfred:
Don't focus on "why didn't they vacate their WS title." Today's punishment makes the 2017 WS forever stuck with an asterisk. I'm not sure I could come up with a stronger punishment to ensure this never happens again than what MLB did today. https://t.co/68vlsNICBk
the 2017 WS defined so many things for the dodgers. it impacted kershaw's legacy, not a single person was happy with dave roberts decisions making, and we literally ran yu darvish out of town. and the whole time, they were cheating. thats what fucking gets me
People: who gives a shit about the past? Vacating a title doesn't mean the next in line gets it. Fuck 2017 WS, it's over. What matters is the future; Astros have lost their manager, their general manager, and 1st & 2nd round draft picks for TWO FUCKING YEARS! Christ almighty
i remember crying so hard at the end of the 2017 ws because i FUCKING KNEW we deserved to win that year https://t.co/DvQCw2ewJV
Dodger fans should get some type of compensation for the emotional stress of the 2017 WS
So: since winning NL pennant, Houston Astros fired asst GM for tirade at reporter concerned about domestic violence; lost World Series to Nats; fired manager and GM over MLB findings they knowingly tolerated cheating during 2017 WS win.
Quite a stretch.
Houston Astros, 2017 WS CHAMPS.
idc, haters can suck it
why are the y*nk**s inserting themselves into the 2017 WS conversation and acting like the 2017 dodgers wouldn’t have demolished the 2017 y*nk**s........... the delusion
Why wasn’t the Astros 2017 WS title vacated?
JUSTIN VERLANDER LEFT BOTH 2017 WS STARTS LOSING. HE'S 0-6 IN THE WORLD SERIES IN HIS CAREER.
HE ALSO HAS BUCK TEETH AND A CRATER ON HIS CHIN. https://t.co/35gJC97hXr
"Utter, utter despair"
Red Sox fans:
"WE CLAIM EVERYTHING. JUDGE > ALTUVE. 2017 WS CHAMPS BABY!!!"
"We would also like our participation trophy"
We swept Houston last year. That was neat.
before I got heavily into LAFC, Dodgers were my life, growing up I watched us get eliminated year after year as a teen, I’d shed a few tears and after the 2017 WS I remember coming home from working at my local dominos, and just burst into tears as soon as I got home.
Can't think of what's more agonizing from here til eternity: Dodgers Twitter claiming the 2017 WS title, or Astros Twitter saying the 2017 title is still legit. https://t.co/eYDGDwEZtR
It's a shame Clayon Kershaw’s postseason record is tainted.
It's a shame Yu Darvish was treated the way he was.
It's a shame that Dave Roberts took much of the blame.
And it's a shame the Astros are still the 2017 WS champs, asterisk or not.
It belongs in L.A.
Just waiting for them to name the Yankees the rightful 2017 WS champs
When it rains it rly pours....now Astros manager fired for confirmed cheating. Gotta think 2017 WS has an asterisk next to it. Tough
@ESPNLosAngeles @VeniceMase @LAIreland
At the end of the day the Astros will still be the 2017 WS Champions.Yes the Dodgers got screwed but shit ain’t going to happen,they won’t be stripped of the title. People got fired,draft picks taken,fines handed out but the Astros are and will continue to be the 2017 WS Champs
2017 - Cora was Astros coach when they got caught for stealing signs using a camera in the outfield. Won the 2017 WS.
2018 - Cora was BoSox coach under investigation for cheating. Won the 2018 WS.
I think I’d be okay with stripping the Astros of the 2017 WS title and having the record books reflect that there was no WS winner that year—just leave it blank.
I say this because all other discipline received is just temporary; there ought to be a lasting mark.
Who’s with me?
