Cody Bellinger has ‘lost respect’ for Astros, calls apologies ‘weak’

Mike Bolsinger

The commissioner also has not sought to strip the team of its 2017 World Series win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Of course, one would have to question why the Astros invested such considerable time and effort in developing the sophisticated cheating scheme, if it didn't "impact the game".

Crane was then asked if sign stealing helped his team's batters. "You can rip my shirt off, my trousers off, I sent my team to the World Series off Aroldis Chapman in the ninth inning, at home, I'm going insane".

"We had a good team", he said. Shortly afterwards, Crane issued a caveat that seemingly contradicted his first statement: "I didn't say it didn't impact the game", he said. The reigning National League MVP, did not hold back on his thoughts on the matter, criticizing the Astros' players, owner Jim Crane, and Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred for their roles in the cheating and reaction. Hinch and Jeff Luhnow for a year. "These are a great group of guys who did not receiver proper guidance from their leaders".

The Houston Astros players and front office staged an insincere, pathetic excuse for an apology three months after a former player exposed their blockbuster sign-stealing scandal that rocked Major League Baseball and shows no signs of going away.

"I am really sorry about the choices that were made by my team, by the organization and by me".

Speaking of the players, Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman also addressed the media.

"I feel awful for our sport, our game, you know, our fans, our city, our organization - just fans in general", Springer said, as NPR's Tom Goldman reported. Altuve said the team had discussed the matter at a meeting and the "whole Astros organization feels bad for what happened in 2017".

"The only thing we can do is sit here and say we're story, we're going to move forward in a positive way", owner Jim Crane said during a news conference at the team's spring training facility in Florida.

But he was met with some skepticism when he said the scheme "didn't impact the game".

Crane also said that he is confident his players never wore electronic buzzers. "It makes me upset that a fake Twitter account had that much credibility".
