    Half a title to two teams, neither of which were in the WS? No.

    If any team should be granted the title, it should be the NL rep. The Dodgers.

    And that makes some sense to me.
    That’s going to happen. It won’t hurt them though because they have a great pool of talent in their minor league system.

    Did they win 4 games? Would they have? Vacate it.

    Why would you give two teams who weren't in the World Series a shared title? Is there an assumption that both would have beaten the Dodgers?


    Leave the title where it is and let history judge.

    One way to handle this is to announce up front that cheating will result in forfeits of every game in that year. NFL too. If that includes the post season and you won.... no champ that year. That would end it quick.

    I think they usually end up just putting the asterick and a footnote. In this case it will say "the Red Sox would have won but Houston cheated".

    In Las Vegas you can bet on how many Astros players will be hit by a pitch next season and who the leader will be. That is hilarious.

    Why the Red Sox? Would they have gotten to the World Series and defeated the Dodgers? Probably not.

    Thoughts?

    Your Cleveland Indians are the New Cubs: 71 years without winning a World Series. You're one NEO who never got out of the Matrix.
