    Anyone Else Worried About Moustakas Contract After Astros Scandal?

    After the Astros Scandal broke yesterday I started hearing people talk about the Brewers doing something similar.

    What are the chances Mooseís surge the last couple of years is because of cheating?

    I was really excited about this contract now Iím kind of worried.
    What would you say.....ya do here?

    Nope. Hadn't occurred to me at all, actually. And I'm generally a worrier!

    I'm worried about his career OBP and how that works in conjunction with a worsening Votto.

    But not this.

    The only thing I worry about is Moose's ability to play 2nd for his whole contract.

    I am beginning to worry that I associate every knock I hear with a changeup, but other than that, no.
    I'm just going to go find a cash machine.

    Re: Anyone Else Worried About Moustakas Contract After Astros Scandal?

    the reds definitely overpaid for him imo, but i think they needed to in order to sign him. and plus they obviously didn't have to give up any prospects to get him, so all in all i'm fine with the signing.

    although, i do believe the brewers should be part of this investigation. things such as castillo turning into eric milton when he pitches at miller park have raised my suspicions.

    I tend not to spend too much time worrying about millionaires and billionaires. I think they'll all be fine

    what is with all the snark directed at the op? it's a legitimate question. no one is worried about moustakas having a bad life. what he obviously meant was should reds fans be worried/concerned that moose might not have been a good signing.

    I believe the Reds overpaid to get him. I think they could have gotten similar production elsewhere without turning their top prospect into a utilityman.

    But no, not worried that he had a surge in production in the most prolific offensive season of all time.
