Yu Darvish delivers savage response to Astros fan on Twitter

Yu Darvish

Yu Darvish has a lot of questions about the Houston Astros’ cheating scandal, but he’s managed to take it in stride despite being one of its biggest victims.

That continued Sunday. Darvish voiced his opinion that the Astros should be stripped of their World Series title in light of the cheating they engaged in. Naturally, some Astros fans on Twitter who were happy to blindly defend their organization’s conduct trolled him on Twitter, with one even sending the pitcher a photo of the World Series trophy.

Darvish had the perfect response to that.

Darvish didn’t shy away from other trolls. Some even sent him images of Yuli Gurriel making a racist gesture during that World Series, and Darvish was entirely unimpressed.

Now with the Chicago Cubs, Darvish has handled this about as well as he could have. He posted a 21.60 ERA in two World Series losses in 2017, and now we know what the Astros were up to during that time. He’d be entirely justified in being angry, and perhaps he is, but he’s also shown off a top notch sense of humor through the ordeal.

The Houston Astros are confirmed cheaters and deserve an asterisk. Send that message by wearing our Houston Asterisks T-shirt! You can buy it here:
