MLB legend Alex Rodriguez thinks the Houston Astros have earned whatever will happen to them going forward.
The Astros were caught up in a massive cheating scandal surrounding stealing signs during their 2017 World Series run. The players haven’t really appeared sorry at all, and A-Rod thinks that’s a problem.
“You’ve earned all this negative talk. You’ve earned whatever comes your way, including whether it’s hit by a pitch or negative press, you’ve divorced yourself from the ability to protect yourself,” the Yankees legend said when discussing the cheating scandal during a Tuesday broadcast.

You know things are bad when Alex Rodriguez, a guy who got hit with the longest steroids suspension in league history, is out here criticizing you.
Instead, they’ve almost treated the entire situation like a joke, and players around the league are continuing to get more and more frustrated.
I have no idea what awaits the Astros this season, but I know it won’t be good. Something tells me we’re going to see players get thrown at a lot.
Again, this all could have been avoided if the players were sincerely sorry. Instead, it looks like a little karma will get handed out on the field, and A-Rod seems to know it.
