Following a Houston Astros win at Yankee Stadium last week, catcher Robinson Chirinos had some choice words about New York Yankees fans leaving early. On Wednesday night, karma came for him in a huge way.

Death, taxes and the swift karmic justice of the universe. These are the only three things we can count on to occur without fail.

Houston Astros catcher Robinson Chirinos learned that the hard way on Wednesday night, a week after throwing shade at New York Yankees fans for leaving a game early.

It took one week for Chirinos to eat those words. Seven days. He called out Yankees fans for how disrespectful it is to leave early. Noted that the fans should have more respect for their 100-win team.

And one week later, Astros fans leave the World Series early because the Washington Nationals decided to run up the score.

The Houston Astros are a karmic black hole right now and I am loving every second of it. This World Series matchup with the Nationals is the clearest “good guy vs. bad guy” and “David vs. Goliath” series that I can remember. Houston has been nothing but excessively cocky all postseason and they’re being put in their place by the Cinderella story Nationals.

Of course, the Nationals need to win the series to fully exact the universe’s karmic justice. They beat Gerrit Cole and Justin Verlander in Houston so that’s a pretty good start.

A few more cocky quotes from Carlos Correa and I’ll be buying my tickets to D.C. for the parade before the series even ends.

Lifetime ballplayer and Yankee fan. Strongly believe that the eye-test and advanced stats can be used together instead of against each other.
