The Houston Astros have been the butt of every Major League Baseball joke following the team’s cheating scandal. Players, coaches and analyst alike have torched the Astros for their decisions.
After winning the title in 2017, it looked like the Astros were building a dynasty that would last for a long time. Just two years later, everyone around the league wants a piece of the team – and not in a good way.
New York Yankees start Aaron Judge called out the Astros, calling for the team to be stripped of its title. He’s not alone, and even a few other players have suggested far worse should be coming for Houston.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Nick Markakis made it clear he’s fed up with the Astros. “I feel like everybody over there needs a beating,” he said.
Well, one Astros player decided he’s had enough of the talk from around the league. Outfielder Josh Reddick sent a message to the rest of the MLB.
Here’s what he had to say via the Washington Post:
“At some point, you have to move on and not give a s***. We’re going to go out there and win and shut everybody up.”
It’s a bold message, especially considering the Astros were the ones who cheated.
They deserve everything coming their way in terms of comments from other players around the league.
