Dodgers fans, the storylines are flowing on the Houston Astros cheating scandal; and we are truly just getting started I believe.
Meet Jose “Bluebeard” Lara of Los Angeles. Jose is a Dodgers’ super fan who plans to start a class action lawsuit against the Houston Astros for their role in cheating the Dodgers out of the 2017 World Series. With a nickname like ‘Bluebeard’, he’s not a guy I would want to tangle with in the courtroom.
Furthermore, Lara joins KTLA to talk about why he believes he has a case.
First, he declares his plans to set up shop; and take down the mega-powers that are baseball and the last two teams to defeat the Dodgers in the World Series.
“I wanna start a class-action against MLB, Houston, and possibly Boston for our tickets and cheating us out of the World Series.”
Right now, a lot of action is being taken against these same foes. Keep in mind that Los Angeles City Council is requesting that the title be stripped from the Astros.
Next, Bluebeard Lara says he’s not only upset, but he remembers hearing the ‘bangs’ of the trashcan during the games.
“It’s pretty upsetting. This is America’s game, and to learn that is really upsetting. And I remember hearing a couple of bangs [of the trashcan] during the games.”
Honestly, the shock was the emotion I felt up until today. Now, I am a bit angry at all of this. Not just for what the Astros did to the Los Angeles Dodgers; but also for tarnishing what should be a child’s game with some semblance of innocence left in it.
Would you join a class-action lawsuit against the Astros? #DNpoll

For me, this whole thing serves as a harsh reminder that Santa Claus isn’t real, I’m not longer nine years old, and all the simplicity we once enjoyed is gone for the moment. Notably – for that reason – I hope Bluebeard Lara is successful in his legal proceedings.
