Astros: Mike Bolsinger files frivolous lawsuit over ruined career

Players, and fans alike, have been calling for everything from lifetime bans to giving up the Astros World Series Trophy as punishment for their sign-stealing ways. But this one takes the cake. Mike Bolsinger, a pitcher with a struggling career at best, is laying the blame on the Astros for his career in the Majors going south.

Bolsinger has filed a civil lawsuit against the Houston Astros through the Los Angeles Superior Court. He is seeking unspecified damages along with a monetary punishment to the tune of about $31 million. That amount just so happens to be equal to the bonuses awarded the Astros for taking the title in 2017.
