  1. Much of that is true. The narrative would be different for Kershaw and Roberts if the cheaters didn’t cheat. So a two yr window to win a WS is unnecessary and unreasonable. Anything could happen, injuries, shortened seasons, other teams being just as good. Overall wins, game management and team culture are what should be judged.
