One thing has been made very clear just a few games into the year: MLB fans have not forgotten what the Astros did. Houston has played in two different cities since the start of the new season, and have been tormented by fans in both locations.
Oakland A’s fans brought out all sorts of equipment to mock what the Astros did to the game of baseball. They brought out signs adorned with catchy cheating phrases and even had a mock-cheating system complete with a cardboard video camera. The Astros might be ready to move on, but the rest of MLB is not.
As it turns out, Angels fans definitely weren’t going to let Houston come and go without some jeering. Fans out in Anaheim started with an inflatable trashcan that made its way down onto the field with the Astros on defense. That’s some MLB will likely let pass since it’s roughly a beachball equivalent.
Fans just tossed garbage can on the field at Angel Stadium to taunt the Astros lol

It didn’t quite stop there. When Angels fans ran out of inflatable trash cans, they turned to the next best thing….
