Worth It? Does MLB’s reaction to Astros, Red Sox tainted titles mean cheaters can prosper?

And now, some commentary on the major baseball news of the day:

The 2017 World Series champion Houston Astros are cheaters. We already knew that.

The 2018 World Series champion Boston Red Sox cheated a bit too. Less than the Astros, but enough that MLB on Wednesday docked them a draft pick and suspended one of their staffers for the year.

And for the second time, no players were suspended.

So much for the sanctity of the game, right?
