Former Dodger and Cardinal David Freese Has Exceptionally Weird Take on Astros Cheating Scandal

The Houston Astros organization was hit hard by the MLB after the league finally announced its discipline for the infamous sign-stealing scandal.

While the baseball word now awaits the punishments for Red Sox skipper Alex Cora, members of big league teams have begun to weigh in on the situation with varying opinions.

Former Dodger and Cardinal David Freese was the latest to share his two cents, though we're not sure his thought process here is very logical.

The Astros were fined $5 million and stripped of their first and second round draft picks for 2020 and 2021. Manager A.J. Hinch and GM Jeff Lunhow were both issues one-year suspensions, but Astros' owner Jim Crane terminated both of their contracts.

Freese seems to think that the punishments were a bit over the top, but complimented the MLB for "stepping up." The infielder effectively proceeded to bash those who cooperated with the investigation (particularly those on World Series winning teams) for snitching, before wildly claiming they should be stripped of the World Series ring.

Freese, the 2011 World Series MVP, was part of the Dodgers team that lost to Cora's Red Sox in the 2018 Fall Classic. Perhaps Freese will have more to add to his diatribe when Cora receives his punishment
