Yu Darvish is convinced that the Astros doesn't deserve to be world champion.
The former Dodgers thrower was largely responsible for the team's defeat against the Astros in 2017, losing games 3 and 7 with 1 2/3 innings in both starts.
"It's like the Olympics," Darvish told reporters of the Cubs spring training on Sunday. "When a player cheats, you can't have a gold medal, can you? But they still have a World Series title. It [feels] strange."
Throughout the 2017 season, the Astros were found to have used a video sign stealing system that supported their run to the franchise's first championship. Shortstop Carlos Correa defended the team's postseason in an interview with MLB Network, saying they won the World Series without "street cheating".
Correa replied to Darvish's former teammate Cody Bellinger, who claimed that the Astros stole the World Series from the Dodgers, and Jose Altuve did not deserve the AL MVP against Yankees racket Aaron Judge.
"So cheat, I think you shouldn't talk now," said Darvish. “Some people have lost their jobs. You have to apologize more. I don't feel anything from these guys. "
The Astros won crucial game 7 in Los Angeles 5-1 after Darvish gave up all five of those runs before the second inning was over. It was Darvish's last outing for the Dodgers that the following off-season signed a six-year, $ 126 million contract with the Cubs.
"I know they stole characters, but at the same time I wasn't good at the World Series," said Darvish. "I'm better for what I've been through. But yes, everyone is surprised [their numbers] Pitching against them. "
