Speaking of cheaters, we got to hear from the Astros a little more this week. While some players in the organization already issued their own public apologies, this time we got one from a lawyer. Josh Reddick, on the other hand, is just pouring gasoline on the fire.

  1. I agree that some things need to be fixed with regard to the one year draft ban of the Astros. But I would be happiest if the following things ensued:
    1. The Astros claim to the 2017 World Championship be vacated.
    2. That each player be requested by the Commissioner to surrender their World Series rings, which they unambiguously did not earn.
    3. They each player publicly and sincerely ask for forgiveness to the League and to the LA Dodgers in particular, using the word “cheating.” (i.e. “Yes, I cheated,” not palliatives like “I made a mistake,” or “I erred,” “I blundered,” “I blew it,” “I kicked a ground ball,” etc.
    The integrity of the game is at stake; what’s less than these things is tantamount to justifying the cheat. And let the Dodgers heartily forgive them, too!
