Of the many terrible things that MLB commissioner Rob Manfred and his team have implemented this season, this one may take the cake. In the infinite wisdom of the baseball brain trust, the Dodgers and Padres are playing in Texas and the one Texas team is in LA for this round of the playoffs.
Thanks to this, the Houston Astros are back at Dodger Stadium after getting a warm welcome from Dodger faithful about a month ago. With that, notoriously bad Houston outfielder Josh Reddick had some words about what he saw last month.
I thought there would be more. I was kind of disappointed that there weren’t enough out there (in September). I know I’m stirring that pot, but when I got there I was expecting to have my phone out ready to record, and I was kind of disappointed with the number that was out there.
Reddick is of course referring to fans that waited outside of Dodger Stadium to give a rude welcome to those cheating Astros. Dodgers fans lined Vin Scully ave armed with trash cans and megaphones to make their voices heard. As for Reddick, he still doesn’t care what fans think about his role in the cheating scandal that rocked Major League Baseball. In fact, it sounds like he’s hoping for more fans to be out there during the ALDS.
All the Dodgers fans who probably still hold that grudge are going to be out here voicing their opinion, so we may see them here next week and see what they’re capable of and maybe we’ll have some more out there.
Thanks for the reminder Josh, we knew there was a good reason we didn’t like you when you were a member of the Dodgers.
