The story of the Houston Astros has not only been the talk of baseball, but now it goes beyond the sports community. Actor Tim Allen towards the end of the hit show 'Last Man Standing' was getting ready to sign off when he decided to poke a little fun at the Astros.
America's obsession with winning or losing could make us lose sight of what is right and what is wrong. I am talking to you Houston Astros.
He joins a long list of people that used their platform to speak out on the sign-stealing scandal that occurred this offseason.
Early this year, the team fired manager AJ Hinch, and General Manager Jeff Lundhow in January after being fined $5 million and docked several draft picks for the scheme. Both had been suspended for one year by Robert D. Manfred, the Major League Baseball commissioner, who has been intensely criticized for not punishing any of the players and not vacating the Astros’ World Series title from 2017.
