    Yeah, in a stadium they share with the ASTROS.
    Let's wait for actual Astros road games, particularly a regular season one. If they take them away from the fans in Oakland next month, I'll concede the point.

    When my kids grow up and look at history, they will see the Astros won the 2017 WS still.

    -“Little League teams from California to Pennsylvania ban 'Astros' nickname after cheating scandal”
    -The Astros may have kept their 2017 World Series title, but it’s little more than “a piece of metal” placeholder now. The team that won it is now known as a group of cheaters, thieves, and liars, their names carrying asterisks like the Black Sox or players from the Steroid Era.
    -Houston may get to keep their title, but they’ve lost a generation of fans. I wonder if anyone associated can argue that price will be worth it in the end.


    HOU should apologize, forfeit, and move on. Pretending to be champs when no one believes you to be legitimate is nothing but a foolish endeavor.

    Like I said, 20 years from now. The only reason everyone remembers the Black Sox 100 years ago was the fact the players got banned from baseball. This slap on the wrist? I think a couple of seasons down the road it will wear off.

    People remember the Black Sox because they took money to throw the World Series in addition to the fact they were banned from the sport.

    There isn't a chance in hell the Astros organization, much less the players, live this down.

    Well that and it caused the creation of the commissioner's office. Baseball didn't have a commissioner before the Black Sox scandal.
