The Houston Astros will be taking on the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 1 of the World Series starting tonight. The Astros will be playing in their fourth World Series in the last six years.

Although Few players across the league have moved on and forgotten about the Astros' cheating scandal, Chicago White Sox reliever and former Dodger Joe Kelly has made it known that he hasn't forgot. Here is what he said on the Baseball isn't boring podcast:

"It’s going to be lingering, for sure. I don’t think there’s going to be any kind of separation,” Kelly said on the new Audacy Original Podcast “Baseball Isn't Boring. "I think it’s probably going to be closer to 90% of everyone wanting the Phillies to win."

Kelly went on to say this about the Houston Astros and if they are tarnished for life:

"I think so. I would say so, yeah," Kelly said, of fans still holding a grudge against the Astros. "They’re going to have a completely different team here in a couple of years. It’s one of those things that it’s tarnished for life. It’s tough."

Safe to say we know who Joe Kelly will be pulling for in this World Series.
