Everyone is cheating even back in Roger Maris's playing days. There's no such thing as a clean sport.

I have a hard time accepting sign stealing as cheating.
It's not like the last Yankees team to win the WS wasn't filled with roided up hitters and pitchers.

Also, does anyone even give a shit about LA's 2 Covid titles? Those "titles" are the ones that deserve an asterisk.

My fandom is ramping up as the Astros make another World Series run. After that, I don't give a shit again, because I will be dead due to my advanced age.

Why? The MLB playoffs had 16 teams in 2020 rather than the usual 10; it was actually harder, not easier during the year the Dodgers won.
They played a 50 game season with half the league making the post season. It's a bullshit fake title just like the Lakers Covid "title"

So you’re saying they wouldn’t have made the playoffs if it was a full season?

What a fucking crybaby. Bonds has the record whether you look it or not and your dad has been relegated to a footnote in history. Fucking deal with it.
He came out calling Bonds the best ever. Arguable, but such a strong take leads me to assume somebody got to doofus and told him to fuck off.
As an LAD hating Angeleno, few things in sport would bring me greater pleasure than Houston beating these Dodgers in the WS. Arsenal topping City in EPL would rate higher…but I’m not that insane.
So you’re saying they wouldn’t have made the playoffs if it was a full season?
They (LAD and LAL) won, so certainly deserve credit for it, but there are undoubtedly extenuating circumstances. Playing ~30% of a season makes a difference. As we’re seeing this year with the Dodgers, it may well have made no difference at all, but it’s not unreasonable to pick nits over it.
