You hate the Astros, I hate the Astros… everyone hates the Astros, save for maybe the “eVerYonE chEatS” brand of Houstonians and, of course, Rob Manfred. Sadly, COVID-19 took away our opportunity to proudly boo the cheaters in person.
However, one fan — a Yankees fan of all people — visited the parking lot at Angel Stadium to send a message.

Fox Sports West reporter Alex Curry shared the video featuring the Yankee fan with his “Trashtros” sign and trash can lid. A true patriot for baseball fans in 2020.
Anaheim is hosting Houston for a 3 game set through the weekend. While the Angels lost game one of the series,
thankfully unfortunately, another Astro batter got plunked by a pitch.
Alt*ve getting plunked with a "KNOW THE SIGNS" sign behind him is elite level trolling. pic.twitter.com/YzlB3tG9nR

The irony of the moment is the advertisement behind Jose Altuve prominently displaying “know the signs.” Elite move by the Angels.
Little Altuve was the second batter to get hit on Friday night after Alex Bregman wore a pitch earlier in the game. All told, five Houston batters have been drilled this season, none of them by Joe Kelly or the Dodgers mind you.
The Angels lost the game, but they won our gratitude.
