Jose Altuve and the rest of the Astros have been the targets of fans since the start of spring training. Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Astros are going to have to deal with heckling and criticism from fans all season long, and they are getting quite familiar with that during spring training.

The Astros had a “home” game against the St. Louis Cardinals in West Palm Beach on Sunday, and one fan decided to go all-out with an outfit mocking Houston over the sign-stealing scandal. The guy had a fake camera, a headset, and a sign that read “CURVE BALL.”

No matter how you look at it, the Astros are in for a long season. They can do their best to ignore the noise, but the fallout from the cheating scandal is not going away anytime soon. Fans are going to be holding signs and wearing clothing that taunts the Astros for months to come.

While some players have made really aggressive statements about the Astros stealing signs, the worst thing for Houston players will probably be the fans constantly getting on their case. Of course, they’ve earned every bit of it.
