Hot takes. Plenty of them. Fresh off Major League Baseball announcing that it has suspended Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Joe Kelly eight games and manager Dave Roberts one game, there’s a big time buzz around the sports world.
Unless you have been hiding under a rock, it’s well known that Kelly was seen throwing behind Houston Astros star Alex Bregman and taunting his teammate, Carlos Correa, during Tuesday’s game.
The obvious backdrop here is the Astros’ sign-stealing scandal that resulted in harsh discipline earlier this year. It’s a scandal that started during the 2017 season, a year that culminated in Houston defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series.
Using baseballs as a weapon. Cheating cheaters. In today’s hot take society, opinions were flying around the sports world at a near never-ending clip after MLB handed down its suspensions Wednesday.
