Alright. So Josh Reddick is getting death threats. And Mike Fiers who is now on the Oakland A’s is getting death threats and this thing is getting a bit crazy. Look, I think the Astros are big cheaters and suck. However, death threats aren’t necessary.
Astros outfielder Josh Reddick just told reporters he has received death threats via social media — and that in one case someone wished cancer upon his children. Reddick said he’s not the only one in the Astros’ clubhouse who had received death threats, either.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — If the rhetoric from rival players offers any indication, the Houston Astros have targets on their backs.
And while opposing pitchers may not show mercy to Astros in the batter’s box this season, the team may have to deal with the realization of threats from the public.
Outfielder Josh Reddick told reporters Friday he received death threats on social media. In one case, “someone wished cancer upon his children,” tweeted ESPN’s Jeff Passan.
Alright, let’s leave the kids out of this. This story sucks. I hate what the Astros did but this isn’t the time to get nasty and try say bad things about kids. Ridiculous. I love sports, but I hate when people act this way. It’s just absolutely wrong.
