Jeopardy Pokes Fun At The Houston Astros Over Sign Stealing Scandal


It's all fun and games right?

Jeopardy became the latest show to poke fun at the Houston Astros for the sign stealing scandal that they paid the price for earlier this year. Here is what one of the questions read:

The team moved from the National League to the American League in 2013 and won a now-controversial title in 2017.

It seems like ages ago where the MLB and Rob Manfred came down on the Houston Astros. 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.

The story of the Houston Astros has not only been the talk of baseball, but now it goes beyond the sports community. Even 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.

With the return of baseball looming, this could only get worse for the Astros.
