So what is everyone thoughts about the Astros advancing in the playoffs..
With how crazy 2020 has been it appears everyone forgot what they were caught doing.
It will get interesting if they get into the next round what people will say.
Very disappointed in the Astros behaviour. Yeah, win... and absolutely bend the rules within reason... but outrighting cheating is just cheating. No excuse for that. And the punishment should have been harsher somehow.
Glad the Rays beat them. I like how the Rays find all these odd talents and blend them. Plucky underdogs are always fun to cheer for.
I'm not a Dodgers fan (ok, I kinda hate them...), but they've been so good, for so long now. I do admit that it feels like they just deserve it at this point.
Nothing extra-ordinary about the Rays to root for. Except I like to see a team with a small payroll do well against the more well-to-do teams!
As a casual Astros fan at one point (and that would be mostly due to proximity). I was very disappointed with the punishment (or lack of) and the team's actions in general. There should have been more accountability....and I hate the Dodgers! Go Padres - Sorry Chuck. Oh yeh, I don't like the Astros in the playoffs at all, I hope they lose to TB.
Seems to me to be all the evidence needed that the penalty was inadequate.
Disappointed that Tampa didn’t complete the sweep last night. I just hope that if fans are allowed back next year, that everyone remembers. The Astros caught such a huge break this year not having to play in front of fans. Some of the player’s comments this post season show they still either don’t get it, or don’t care. Especially the comments from Carlos Correa. It’s unfortunate they drew the one team that can’t win even a single game in the first round.
I'm glad that Tampa has taken the first two games, but I'm not rooting extraordinarily hard against Houston. What they did was lousy and they deserve all the scorn coming their way, but I'm not really wowed by the Rays either. I think both the Dodgers and Braves will be favored against whoever wins the AL. Should be interesting.
