It’s OK To Hate The Houston Astros

My brain hurts.

Normally, I’d call that Tuesday, but I’ll blame 2004 for today’s headache. ON THIS DATE, 16 years ago, I was roaming the halls of my dorm at UMass with a broom (I had “borrowed”) from a random janitor’s closet. The New York Yankees held a 3-0 lead over the Boston Red Sox in the ALCS, I was decked out in my A-Rod jersey, and I was constantly 2.5 seconds away from an ass-kicking from any one of the 20,000 Mass-Hole, Red Sox fans that inhabited said University.

Despite the imminent danger I was putting myself in, I was overjoyed that the Yankees would be playing in another World Series.

Being able to rub it in the faces of so many Sawks fans was icing on the cake.

Then, Dave Roberts happened, and David Ortiz happened, and the rest is…you know the saying.

Sooo, Friday night, with a 7-4 victory, the Houston Astros joined the 2004 Boston Red Sox as the only teams in Major League Baseball history to force a game 7 after trailing 0-3 in a postseason series. I’m not going to waste time, or mince my words…

I HATE THE HOUSTON ASTROS!!

And I’m here to tell you it’s okay for you to hate them too. Don’t feel bad. They deserve your vitriol. You can’t just cheat your way to a championship, put on a sad, puppy-dog face, and expect everyone to feel bad for you. Then, when people remind you that you’re an asshole, act like the victim.

And while I’d gladly headbutt Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman, or any other Houston Astros’ player within a head’s length, 99.9% of this diatribe is directed at Carlos Correa.

See, some people are just born with a punchable face. *Yes, 36-year old man, living in his mother’s basement, I’m aware punchable isn’t a word. Now, shut up, and keep reading.* Enter Carlos Correa. As talented as they come, wildly underachieving so far in his six-year career, there’s just something about Correa’s face you want to see in front of a Mike Tyson, in his prime, right-uppercut.

As a Yankees’ fan, it should be sacrilegious to root for the division rival Tampa Bay Rays, but I have been for the better part of a week now. And Saturday night will be no different (there may be some scotch involved this time though).

Do you hate the Houston Astros as much as I do?? Are you even watching the MLB Postseason?? If not, who do you hate?!

“I LOVE When Millionaires Complain About MONEY!!!!” (DTS Podcast – #104)

Sports leagues want to restart.

We want sports back.

Sports leagues are making it seem like they’re actually trying to start playing games again..soon.

And this has caused some players to start complaining about their salaries.

THIS VIDEO EXPLAINS WHY NONE OF THIS MATTERS!!!!

“I’m Living A Double Life!!” (DTS Podcast #98)

Madison Bumgarner isn’t who you think he is.

He’s ACTUALLY a rodeo roping CHAMPION!!

And, his name is REALLY Mason Saunders.

This HAS to rank as one of the dumbest things that has ever happened in the history of the world.

I hope the Diamondbacks void his contract before it even starts!!

“Rob Manfred Is A MORON!!!!” (DTS Podcast – #94

MLB Commissioner, Rob Manfred’s, annual Spring Training press conference turned into a slow-motion trainwreck.

The more he opened his big, fat mouth, the worse it got.

Oh, and Carlos Correa is the biggest liar of them all.

So much for sincerity!

Thank you Cody Bellinger. Let’s hope you never get caught cheating either….

“WORST. PRESS CONFERENCE. EVER!! (DTS PODCAST – #93)

The Houston Astros held an “apology” press conference.
A “damage control” tour if you will courtesy of their new PR Firm.
They should be promptly fired because this was the worst press conference in the history
of press conferences.

MLB Should Force The Boston Red Sox To Sell The Team!!!! (DTS Podcast – #92)

Everyone is busy focusing in on the Astros’ cheating scandal, while they SHOULD be busy YELLING at the Red Sox.
John Henry, owner of the Red Sox, is a literal billionaire.
Yet, he was too cheap to sign Mookie Betts to a new contract and pay the luxury tax.
Instead….he traded the top-5 player for pennies on the dollar.
This SHOULDN’T be allowed!!!!

“Scott Boras Is Really Rich.” (DTS Podcast – #83)

Gerrit Cole is the missing piece for the next Yankees’ World Series.
Everyone keeps blurting out this phrase….”No one is worth that mu….”
YOU ARE WORTH WHAT SOMEONE IS WILLING TO PAY YOU!!!!
Stephen Strasburg, Anthony Rendon, and Scott Boras are also very, very wealthy.
That is all.

“NO Experience, NO Problem — The METS Will Hire YOU!!!! (DTS Podcast – #78)

Carlos Beltran is the newest manager of the New York Mets.

And you thought you needed experience to get a job!!

Silly YOU!!!!

As virtually every manager in Mets’ history has failed, so shall Carlos.

It’s a shame though, because I really like Carlos.

“Steph Curry Is Injury Prone!!” (DTS Podcast – #75)

The Washington Nationals are your World Series Champions!!

Steph Curry gets hurt every year….this time he broke his left hand.

Defense is illegal in the NBA. When you have a 159-158 game that didn’t go to 17 overtimes..you have an issue!!

Athlete-Students are finally getting PAID!!
