Ex-Yankee Phil Hughes Calls Astros ‘Clowns’ After Game 7 Loss To Rays
Even former Yankees and Twins pitcher Phil Hughes felt like taking a shot on the Astros.
Hughes sarcastically mocked Houston, saying the team elimination was a “shame” before calling the Astros “clowns” and undeserving of their playoff spot.
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

“Man that’s too bad for the Astros,” wrote Hughes. “One game away from the World Series after being a sub .500 team this year. Shame. Clowns.”
The 4-2 loss to the Rays at Petco Park in San Diego did bring a sub-par season to an end for the Astros but their run through the playoffs to get to the ALCS was impressive.
The Rays now wait for the winner of Game 7 of the Dodgers and Braves series.
