Chris Broussard: “I believe the Astros should have vacated the title. Let’s keep it real, they have a championship that there's a good chance they don’t deserve. We can say with confidence that the Astros cheated on the playing field and therefore didn’t deserve that World Series ring… Vacate it and just have no champion that year. It takes away any incentive to cheat from an organizational standpoint. If I’m not gonna get to keep the World Series that I won, then how in the world am I going to allow cheating? The Astros cheated ON THE FIELD. It’s different from the college kid who took money from a booster off the field and the NCAA vacating their title… AJ Hinch and Jeff Luhnow should be banned for life from being managers or GMs ever again.” (Full Audio at Bottom of Page)
Listen to Chris Broussard explain why he thought Major League Baseball went way too light on the Houston Astros for their role in a methodical sign-stealing scandal that quickly became one of the most infamous stories in baseball history.
Broussard says he believes the Astros should have been forced to vacate their 2017 World Series title the same way the NCAA brings down banners when schools are accused of using ineligible players that had been proven to have broken NCAA regulations during their championship seasons.
Chris says college players accepting improper benefits off the field is one thing, but the Astros were literally cheating in the field of play, during the game, and in plain view – even going so far to have individuals hitting garbage cans and using whistles to signal to the batter what pitch was likely coming.
Check out the audio below as Chris says vacated a World Series is the only way to make sure an organization never attempts such a stunt ever again.
