Starting Nine: The Crawfish Boxes Staff Reactions to The Astros Cheating Scandal

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports The mantra for most of the season has been “This is a great time to be an Astros fan.” The last several weeks have not been great times.

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports Start your morning by telling us some of the best Astros links around Man it’s been a hell of a week. Everyone is familiar with the cheating controversy at this point and I highly recommend Astros County’s piece from this morning that covers it.
