A Seattle Mariner’s fan fails to troll the Astros with recent GoFundMe page.
While this isn’t breaking news, it is a good feeling to see Houston Astros‘ Twitter and fans stick up for themselves. We have discussed how cheating has been a reoccurring aspect of the game of baseball for years, but because Houston did it in an unorthodox way and was one of the first caught, they were made an example by MLB.
This discussion could go on-and-on, but as the Astros have tarnished the image of the game to many opposing fans and players, these respect people won’t come to terms that many teams are doing similar and/or different things.
Even with Jomboy’s recent fall in the Twitter realm, many MLB fans ignore the reports and facts behind the Astros’ cheating and especially other teams and players’. With this Seattle Mariners’ fans, the podcaster posted a link for his GoFundMe page, where he looked for $9,000 to “troll the Astros for cheating.”

While he deleted the Tweet in the end, it is getting to the point that some people are caring too much about a team that won the World Series, when their team wasn’t in contention for anything. If you didn’t know, the 2017 Mariners finished 78-84 and fourth in the AL West.
This type of Tweeting has been surrounding the name of the franchise for a year-and-a-half, but going to the level of a GoFundMe is an all-time low. Many people look to GoFundMe to help care for injured and sick loved ones to helping families in times of hardship, but this Mariners’ fan found himself looking even dumber than the image he posted.
The fan went private on Twitter, so it’s hard to find the link. Although he is back to his ways of scamming people, the saddest part of it is that someone actually donated $20, while he also donated himself
Houston was caught stealing signs and then winning the World Series, but for this, the fan went to new heights of asking strangers for money to “troll” a group of millionaires that don’t care. He went on to tag major accounts and use hashtags to the point of taking it down within an hour. This just keeps looking like a waste of time for adults, but fans like this won’t find the obvious signal to grow up.
