While the Astros showed heart by coming back from 0-3 series deficit, fans weren’t ready to forgive the team they felt cheated their way to a World Series just a few years ago.
Immediately after the Astros were eliminated fans took to Twitter to mock them.

Man that’s too bad for the Astros. One game away from the World Series after being a sub .500 team this year. Shame. Clowns

I feel bad for Dusty. I do not, at all, in the slightest, feel bad for the Astros.

The Astros were so close. It’s like they we’re missing that one extra thing.
