Darvish is wondering if they stole signs against him in Game 7 of the World Series, except Game 7 was at Dodgers Stadium!

    I get why they're complaining and the Astros 100% deserve this level of skepticism, but if you're not even going to bother to look at the context, don't make absurd statements questioning the validity of the the team's success in those games/series.
    Yeah, has CC forgotten that the World Series trophy isn't handed out after the ALCS.

    A lot of people consider game 5 of the 2017 world series one of the best ever played or at least the best of the decade.
    In light of these new allegations, do you still consider it one of the best games of the decade or ever?

    Impossible to say what would have happened throughout the postseason, the Astros/Dodgers series was back and forth for 7 games, 2 in extras. Game 5 was insane.

    To be clear, Darvish didn't specifically point out game 7. He said he initially was told he was tipping pitches, and in hindsight, he wonders if more was going on during the World Series. He pitched in two games in that series. Game 3, in Houston, and game 7 in LA. He got hit pretty good in both games.

    when things like this are stripped, they're left vacant, not given to someone who didn't win it

    Yeah, this half-hearted apology where they take no official blame is surely going to make everyone feel better.

    Its not about fair. Its a dumb concept altogether. You don't retroactively make someone else the champion.
