The Astros fans were not happy with the info that came out and were left confused if they should support the team or not. The employees of the team are having the toughest time as they have to keep on doing their job amid one of the biggest scandals in baseball history. The Rockets were not in the form they were just two seasons back. James Harden and Russell Westbrook may get the blame, but the truth is the whole team holds the blame to some extent.
