It’s been one day since the Astros received penalties from the MLB after sign stealing in the 2017 postseason. Houston received multiple punishments, including loses of 1st and 2nd round draft picks for the next two drafts and a $5 million fine. During the press conference, the Astros owner, Jim Crane, announced the firing of manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow.
What a Monday morning.
Here are a few of my favorite tweets of the day:
If the Dodgers are planning a 2017 World Series parade, I would love to join! So if that is in the works, can someone make a Yu Garbage Jersey for me?— ダルビッシュ有(Yu Darvish) (@faridyu) January 14, 2020
Didn’t really expect the punishments to be this harsh. Good for MLB stepping up. Still don’t know what’s more frustrating tho, an ex teammate of the WS title team talking publicly about his team cheating or so many guys being down to use a damn trash can lol.

The Dodgers organization put out a statement late Monday night that basically said they won’t comment on the matter. What are your thoughts on that?
Should the Dodgers comment on the Astros’ actions in the 2017 World Series?
