Dodgers: Rob Lowe Goes Off on the Astros and Kershaw’s Legacy



As we’ve learned over the last couple of years, there aren’t very many people that are bigger Dodgers fans than Rob Lowe. And we REALLY know that perhaps no one in the world hates the Houston Astros more than he does.

Lowe got the chance to go off on the Astros on Pardon My Take this past week, and he talked about the cheating scandal. The esteemed actor also talked about the career of Clayton Kershaw and how he got the worst of it. 

Speaking of Clayton Kershaw, he’s the one who really got roasted. I mean that guy, you go and look at those Astro home games and he got lit up like it was batting practice, and it turns out it was that, batting practice. 

Lowe is certainly correct in saying that Kershaw’s splits were perhaps the most obvious sign of the Astros cheating against the Dodgers. In two games at Dodger Stadium, Kershaw pitched 11 innings and only allowed one run with 15 strikeouts. In his lone appearance at Minute Maid Park, Kershaw allowed 6 runs in 4.2 innings striking out just 2 batters.

Lowe goes on to talk about the World Series, and whether or not the Dodgers should be awarded the 2017 title.

No I don’t think we should do that. I literally think, hence the asterisk, it’s like. You know I love Barry Bonds and I don’t want to drag him right now because he’s a really good dude…but there’s sort of a perceived asterisk around some of that stuff…

Agreed, the Dodgers do not need to be awarded a title that they did not win, regardless of how badly that they were cheated. As long as that asterisk always exists in the record books, that would be enough for me. Check out the whole interview as Lowe talks about his encounter with Jose Altuve and selling Houston Asterisk hats.

  1. I disagree with Lowe. An asterisk is not enough. What should be done is to take the championship away from the former so-called Astros. No Trophies, no rings, no monies paid to the chumps(champs). And after all that replace the Commissioner of Baseball.

    • Agree. They meaning the Astros haven’t really been punished enough. It should go down in History books that they cheated and there for the World series there was no winner. Wouldn’t hurt to get a New Commissioner with a SPINE!

  2. Get over it already,how low u can go rob get a life,2017 3.5 years go make another b rated movie or series flop,put an asterisk by that because of the money u stole from the [email protected]#$^^&*

  3.

  5. First of all Mike M. is a joke with his comments! Rob is spot on, the commissioner is weak and has NO BUSINESS RUNNING THE MLB!!!!!
    And I agree the Astros should return everything the recieved and get a five year suspension. I’d they didn’t cheat they wouldn’t even have been there!!!

  6. I agree with Rob Lowe and cheaters should never be champions, that is why cheaters are not in the Hall of Fame. I can you see a garage can in the Hall of Fame!

  7. Rob? Weren’t you in public trouble a few decades ago? Must be nice to be high and mighty now. ?

  8. Quit the trash on the Astro. They won. About cheating. They all cheat. If you watch a game you can see it. Have been saying this for years. Before all this all started. And the Yankees are The worst. Add on the Dodgers. No virgins there either. Been a fan for over 40 years. So have see n a lot of crap. Just play ball and quit whining.

  9. Really just a hand slap ? There’s NO accountibly anymore so it will possibly happen again it’s a shame that Baseball is so tarnished also with the Steroid era, Hank Aaron your the KING of Home Runs !!

  10. CHEATER’S CANNOT BE CHAMPION’S!!!!!!
    IT WILL BE MARKED IN EVERY1 HISTORY THAT THEY CHEATED THOUGH THEY GET AWAY WITH IT AND SO THEIR FOR THEY CANNOT BE WINNERS!! [SHAME]
    ASTRO’S ARE EVEN LUCKLY WE DONT PUT @LL 0F THEIR MEMORABILIA EVER EXCITED IN A LA LOS ANGELES DUMPSTER @ IN OUR CALIFORNIA HOME IN LA!!! AND BANG THAT DUMPSTER, OR SHOULD I SAY TEACH THEM HOW’S IT DONE OUTTA THE PARK!!!!!! TO M333 IT’S JUST SHAME URSELF ASTOR’S TEAM &&& +++ ANY1 WHO AGREES THAT THEIR CHAMPIONS LOL!!! THAT’S A JOKE, LIKE THEY ROBBED THE WHOLE LA LOS ANGELES DODGER’S TEAM, AND ANY1 ASSOCIATED OR WHO BLEED’S BLUE!!! CLAYTON KERSHAW YEAR, LEGACY, AND U$$$ TOO THE FANS!!!

  11. EVERY1 KNOWS THEIR S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL!!!!!! “NEGATIVE NANCY” HERE IN LA WERE ALL ABOUT FACTS!!! [WHERE WE TELL IT HOW IT IS!…]

  12. Wow!! Boston,New York, and yes your precious Dodgers!! Every one of these teams have been mired with ridicule and and negative attention! 8 know they were trying stuff like that when I played little league! I know its because ppl have nothing better to do! And its been proven atleadt 1 of those 3 so-called hallowed teams were the ones that brought that philosophy over there!!! So excuse me but yes…it was wrong and as a houstonian heartbreaking that they would let some excuse happen to take the victory of a whole city!! Not just a team Verlander was striking out,and Altuve,Springer,bregman were crushing it before any of this too! Im just soon tirex of the crying and hyprocracy

  13. There are more important things going on in the world to have this discussion all over again. MLB did their investigation and handed out the punishment. Move on!

  14. All those that disagree that they should not take away the championship from the astros and red socks too in fact, its because it was not their team that got robbed, if it was their team they would be angry too. If the Dodgers lost fairly to both teams, ok. But they didn’t, DODGERS, KERSHAW AND DODGERS FANS GOT ROBBED.

  15. THE [LOSERS] ARE THE 1’S WHO BELIEVE ASTRO’S ARE CHAMPION’S “MOVE ON!!!” GET OVER URSELF THEIRS ALWAYS GONNA BE MORE UGLIER SHIT GOING ON IN THIS WORLD EVERYDAY!!!!!!! WE BLEED BLUE DAILY IT’S A BLOOD BOND NO 1 CAN BREAK &&& 0NLY WE CAN RELATE!!! LA DODGERS (PARA SIEMPRE!!!) [POR VIDA] FOR LIFE HATERS!!!! DONT BE MAD BECAUSE NO OTHER TEAM IS GREATER, BETTER THEN THE REST THE LOS ANGELES (BLUE) L.A. DODGER’S #1 4 LIFE :.
