Many of us are not exactly fond of Josh Reddick — that is loud and clear. Now, it appears that we have even more ammunition against him. With the recent events that have transpired in regards to the Houston Astros, Josh Reddick has been unusually silent. Hmm, I wonder why!
It’s hard to think back to the time that Josh Reddick was, in fact, a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was acquired along with Rich Hill from the Oakland Athletics in 2016 to replace Yasiel Puig in right field. The problem was that he was not a very good Dodger. He was actually very bad at baseball during his time here.

I guess your batting average and overall ability does increase when you know what pitch is coming, right?
Now, Josh Reddick recently spoke on the events that took place, most notably in 2017 in the World Series against his former team, with Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle.
This is the equivalent of an admission of guilt and it’s sweet:
“It just stinks. It stinks for everybody involved.”
Maybe he should burn the “We Beat LA” t-shirt now and trade it in for a “We Cheat LA” special.
Frankly, this is now a tainted title, but Reddick wants the world to wait for when the Astros are ready?
“I just think it will get addressed when the time is right. When everyone feels the time is right, it will get taken care of.”
Moreover, video recently surfaced of Reddick in an interview where people believe it could be a wire.
Astros Outfielder Josh Reddick said it was confetti on his chest in that widely shared picture accusing Reddick of wearing a buzzer or wire.

“That’s confetti. It gets ridiculous. That’s all I’ll say.”
Does he not realize that he is, in fact, a member of the Houston Astros? When asked by Rome whether he had any personal regrets from 2017, he seemed to lack remorse:
“We’re not talking much about it.”
