Never forget…

The Oakland Athletics wasted no time reminding folks that the Houston Astros are big, fat, stinkin’ cheaters this year.

Opening the season at home against the Astros, the A’s ballpark music crew took the opportunity to troll the Stros by playing Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats” during the starting lineup announcement on Saturday. Of course, the song comes in response to the Astros sign steaming scandal that came out in 2019.

And while you gotta love the move from the A’s, it didn’t help them on the field.

They opened the season by dropping four straight to the Houston Astros.


Cue it up.
