In a new development in the cheating scandal that has rocked Major League Baseball, the Los Angeles City Council has passed a measure asking the league to award the Dodgers the 2017 and 2018 World Series titles. 

LA lost the World Series in 2017 to the Houston Astros, who were found to have cheated by using technology to steal pitching signs. The Boston Red Sox also are being investigated for this; the Dodgers lost the title to them in 2018.

KNKX sports commentator Art Thiel says the council's move is "symbolic of the rage going on in baseball." He talked with Morning Edition host Kirsten Kendrick about the scandal, which involves one of the Mariners' division rivals.
