Yu Darvish thinks that Astros should lose title and stop talking

You have to feel terrible for Chicago Cubs pitcher Yu Darvish.
He was one of the primary victims in the Astros' cheating-scandal as they teed off on him while he was a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2017.
Darvish was asked about the Astros on Monday and believes that the championship they won by cheating should be revoked.
"It's a weird feeling. It's like the Olympics," Darvish said. "When a player cheats, you can't have a gold medal, right? But they still have a World Series title. It makes me feel weird. That doesn't seem [right]."
Darvish wishes that they would just apologize and basically shut up.
"So they cheat, I think they shouldn't talk right now."
Solid take by Darvish, and I agree that major league baseball should take a firm stance against cheating at a team level. Hardly punishing them at all sets a horrible example for today's youth.
I can only imagine what this will lead to during the season as opponents take out their frustrations out on the Astros' players by beaning them, talking trash, etc.
Darvish is a must-follow on social-media:
