The Astros over the last couple of years have been public enemy #1 to many baseball fans and Major League Baseball.
Actor Bryan Cranston took to Instagram to offer his pre-Fall Classic thoughts and, in essence, completely torch the Astros for their wrongdoings and their crimes against baseball. Here is what Cranston wrote just ahead of Game 1 of the World Series.
I’ve got some thoughts to share on this eve of the World Series. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, so I’ve loved the@Dodgersall my life. By extension, I’ve hated the rival@SFGiantsand their success against us, but I’ve never disrespected them. That’s not the case with the@Astros. They have been exposed as cheaters. Not in a good-ol’-fashion baseball way, but in a ‘calculated, devious use of technology and a trash can’ way. The kicker is that they were already a very talented team… they sullied the reputation of baseball, their fans, and themselves - out of pure ego. They disrespected the game, and that is why they are universally disrespected and despised by nearly everyone who loves baseball, including me. Their duplicity was met with finger-waving admonishment as their punishment. The commissioner’s failure to protect the integrity of the game was a disappointment. So maybe the baseball writers can administer justice to these cheaters by remembering years from now, that several great players are hoping to enter the Hall. Correa, Altuve, Bregman, etc, all have a good shot at being elected to the Hall of Infamy.I hope they make it.
Braves took a 1-0 lead in the World Series and are three wins away from a World Series championship.
