Do We Really Want To Know More About The Astros Cheating Scandal?

Do we really want to know more about the Houston Astros cheating scandal it might just piss us off more as fans? MLB did an investigation, but we really do not know-how through the investigation really was done. I will be honest I do not totally trust them to do a good investigation into anything. The reality is if they know more and it's going to hurt the product how do we know it will be included in the report at all.

From buzzers to trash can lids are just some of the props we have heard the Astros used to get an advantage on the competition. The real question, in my opinion, is what else did they do and how long has this been going on. Could this have been going on a long while and no one knew until Mike Fliers open the can of worms. Now other players have come forward with their stories of cheating they witnessed. This tells me this is widespread and just not an isolated incident.

Finding out more will not make fans any happier with the situation. You cannot take titles from them even though they cheated as the other team didn't win it after all. You can never know if the other team would have won if the Astros didn't cheat. Putting an asterisk besides the title makes more sense in my opinion. Hopefully, this will wake up MLB and they will be taking cheating more seriously.

The Astros Finish Off The Tribe Thank God

The Houston Astros put the Cleveland Indians to rest with a convincing 11-3 win and a sweep of the three-game series. Cleveland in recent years has struggled in the playoffs and this scenario has continued in 2018. Since the loss to the Cubs in the World Series, this team just does not look the same. It hard to say how much that has taken out of this team, but it's evident something is not right. Corey Kluber continues to struggle in the playoffs and other players have not stepped up when needed.

Hitting in the playoffs is critical if you want to win a series. Cleveland's hitters went AWOL and Houston pitching mowed through them like a lawnmower through the grass. Cleveland during the regular season hit the ball well, but towards the end of the season, they did struggle. Those struggles continue against a Houston pitching staff that was lights out in all three games.

Cleveland's front office has some thinking to do this offseason. Do they change the manager or is there other issues holding this team back. I do know one thing the window of opportunity is closing rapidly for this team. Cleveland must make some tough decisions in the offseason.  Moves must be made and some bold ones could happen because of this pathetic showing in the playoffs.
