Dodgers fans will never forget how the Houston Astros stole their opportunity to win a title in 2017. If that wasn’t apparent before, it was definitely made clear when fans finally got their opportunity to let them hear it in person earlier this year.
We have our second ? can on the field delay of the night, as the onslaught of BOOS and CHEATERS chants continue to rain down on the Astros* #Dodgers

You certainly can’t blame them, especially when players from that 2017 team continue to pour fuel on the fire.
The latest example of this came early Tuesday afternoon. Josh Reddick decided to host a Q&A session via Twitter, and one fan asked the former major leaguer if he had any regrets about the way 2017 played out. Reddick, of course, wasted no time in setting the record straight.

This is a rather strong sentiment from someone who currently finds themself without a major league (or even minor league) job. It’s even stronger considering that Reddick only managed to hit .154 in the postseason, even with the added assistance.
It should come as no surprise that these players have yet to express any guilt or regret for their actions considering that they never paid any consequences. There’s a difference between refusing to acknowledge the truth and embracing it, however. While other members of that Astros team have done their best to put some distance between their actions and their current status, Reddick has repeatedly rejoiced in the fact that he had to cheat to win.
At the end of the day, no one is going to lose any sleep because Josh Reddick has yet to develop a conscience. He’ll be remembered more for his mishaps off the field than any production on it, which is all the justice we truly need.
