How Astros sign-stealing scandal helped the Phillies

The Houston Astros electronic sign-stealing scandal that's rocking Major League Baseball will be remembered as a stain on the game. In fact, the Phillies are one team that has benefited from what the Astros were seemingly doing to gain an edge and the ramifications since getting caught. If the 2017 World Series team in Houston won it all partly due to an incredible home-field advantage fostered by illegal sign stealing (something the numbers would support), the biggest losers in the wreckage will be remembered as the Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers. It's easy to have sympathy for the Dodgers (the team that lost back-to-back World Series to possible cheaters in 2017 and 2018), but don't forget the Yankees here.
