The 2017 World Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros was one for the ages. It was heartbreaking for all Dodger fans and exhilarating for Astros fans.
That was until we discovered in early 2020 that the Astros cheated in the 2017 season, especially in the ALCS and World Series at their home ballpark, Minute Maid Park.
And since then, Dodger fans have despised the Houston Astros and anymore a part of that Astros team.
One of those players all Dodger fans hate is a former Dodger, Josh Reddick.
Reddick, who now plays for the Perth Heat in the Australian Baseball League, took to Twitter to poke at former Dodger Cody Bellinger and his new contract with the Chicago Cubs.
I guess I should have tried to hit .200 and strikeout 150 times a year. Prolly could have made $20 million a year at this point

This is a classic subtweet from Reddick as he took a shot at Bellinger.
I bet he wishes he had half the talent of Cody. You would think he is that guy, but unfortunately for Reddick, he isn’t and never was ‘that guy’ in his time in the Majors.
Reddick spent half a season with the Boys in Blue in 2016 and was sub-par at best in his brief stint. He slashed .258/.307/.335 with a .643 OPS while only hitting two home runs and nine RBIs in 47 games and 155 ABs.
Ironically, one of his best seasons came in 2017 as a member of the Astros as he recorded a career-best in slugging (.484), OPS (.847), and hits (150), and had his second-best RBI season recording 82 in 134 games.
Josh was never half the player Cody was; it’s no surprise that he is out of the league and playing in Australia now when he had to rely on cheating to have his best season before 2012 with the Oakland Athletics.
Even at Cody’s worst, he was better than Reddick in his last three seasons in the league.
Josh just added more fuel to the fire. Like we needed any more reason to hate him.
