2017 World Series Wikipedia page gets savage edit to troll Astros


As MLB continues its investigation into allegations of sign-stealing by the Houston Astros during the 2017 season, the Wikipedia page for the 2017 World Series received a wild edit that reflects the controversy quite well.

While the Houston Astros are still listed as World Series champions, the World Series MVP is now listed as the “Centerfield cameraman (Houston).”


Astros outfielder George Springer was awarded MVP honors after the Astros defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers in seven games. However, reports of Houston using cameras to steal signs and using signals to alert hitters ire bringing the team’s success into question.

This all reportedly began when an executive for the Astros allegedly asked scouts for help stealing signs. MLB teams, including the Dodgers, were aware of the Astros’ actions and tried to alert MLB.

While we don’t know what the potential punishment for the Astros will be if MLB’s investigation determines they cheated, this Wikipedia edit is at least a nice troll for the time being.
