Last night the Astros were accused of cheating in the ALCS. A member of their organization was escorted from the press pen near the Indians' dugout by security. A source with the Astros says that guy wasn't cheating, he was making sure the Indians weren't cheating (like they did last year).

Last night the Astros also put a girlfriend beater on the mound who beaned two batters and gave up a grand slam.

I'm really gonna dislike the Astros more if they let the Red Sox go to the World Series.

Good news is, they can avoid that by winning the next three games

Sort of evens out the Red Sox pitcher cheating with Pine Tar in Game 2.
Apparently you're more concerned than the Astros are

In an era in which baseballs are replaced more frequently during play than ever before, and especially after an apparent change to the constitution of the official balls to make them slicker and their seams lower, pitchers across the league rely on sticky substances to enhance their grips. Subtly applied pine tar, hair gel or sunscreen — possibly mixed with rosin from the bag on the back of the mound — help guys maintain more control of the baseball, and no one in the game seems to mind.

“Honestly, it’s not even something that’s crossed my mind,” said Astros manager A.J. Hinch on Monday, when told about Barnes’ viral moment. “There’s a lot of attention on everything. There’s an answer for everything. There’s a lot of experts. There’s a lot of curiosities. I think there are so many good storylines in this series that I hope that something like that doesn’t even really get more than one click. There’s so much difference between doctoring a ball versus kind of what goes on nowadays.”

I'm OK with Boston moving forward.
It took them so long to win a series, I don't mind them having a few good seasons.
That, and Fenway is a great park.
Talk about your $45 beers?!?!? Am I right????

This was a no win series for me. Don't like either team, but I would rather have had the Astros return to the WS then the Sox and their a-hole fans have bragging rights to another title
