I’m sure the majority of baseball fans and sports fans in general, are well aware of the 2017 Houston Astro scandal by now. If you don’t, MLB had opened up a “thorough” investigation into the team and later announced in January of 2020 that the Astros had illegally used a camera to steal signs from other teams during the 2017 and 2018 seasons. Once the news went public, Astros GM Jeff Luhnow and manager A.J. Hinch was suspended for the 2020 season. Team owner Jim Crane had fired both from the team before those suspensions took place.
For Astros fans, it seems as the scandal will haunt them forever and their 2017 championship season will be forever tainted, but for Dodger fans, they absolutely love seeing them suffer more. The city of Los Angeles was basically cheated from a championship and the world knows it.
Thanks LeBron! We definitely look forward to this masterpiece.
