The Houston Astros do NOT deserve an asterisk next to their 2017 World Series championship … so says Miguel Cabrera, who thinks the notion of a tainted title is “bulls***.”
The MLB superstar didn’t mince words in an interview with ESPN this week … saying straight-up Houston earned its ’17 ring, despite its massive sign-stealing, cheating scandal that season.
“In the end … it’s baseball,” the future Hall of Famer said. “[Try to] go ahead and do it like those guys did.”
It’s a hot take from Cabrera … considering most of Miguel’s baseball peers wildly disagree.
MVPs like Cody Bellinger and Mike Trout have blasted the Astros for their roles in the cheating ordeal … and were HEATED when none of the players were severely punished.
In fact, former Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia has been so livid over it all … he’s ripped the ‘Stros every opportunity he’s had, even recently calling Carlos Correa a “clown.”
Cabrera — whose Tigers manager is now former Astros 2017 bench honcho A.J. Hinch — clearly sees things differently … saying of the entire ordeal, “I don’t care about that.”
Cabrera says Hinch has been nothing but a good dude since the Tigers hired him this offseason … adding, “I don’t care what they did in Houston.”
“He [was] a big part of the success Houston had the last three to five years.”
For the Astros’ part … many of their star players have apologized for the scandal — and Hinch himself has taken responsibility for his role in all the cheating.
