    Nice take Houston guy.

    my Yankees, cubs, and rox fans are pretty pissed at the light punishment. Got several texts during the Astros pressers

    “if you don’t know the facts then shut fuck up” is hilarious

    all everyone wants are the facts but every time the people involved are asked about it, they point to the commissioner’s report which is clearly a joke

    I ardently support players getting paid huge contracts and hate that ownership and management has condition fans into believing that the backend of these deals is the reason they can’t be more aggressive/compete. That said, I hope when all these Astros cheaters, I mean hitters, reach the open market that their suitors lowball them because we can’t be sure if their numbers correlate with talent or their amateur production of the STOMP

    There's hours and hours of video out there. Do none of them have the trash can with Altuve at bat?

    would love to be a fly on the wall of the asg locker room if any of these astros stars make it

    that’ll be another interesting subject when the time comes

    i doubt any of them are voted in by the fans

    I almost expect the opposite. Houston is massive enough, and butthurt enough about this to rally around their guys and support them even more.

    Hell, in 2015, half the ASG starters were Royals and we are the second smallest market in baseball.

    If it gets to that point, I wouldn't be shocked if Altuve or whoever makes a mystery DL trip around the break.

    Not sure how I can believe Correa about 2018-19 at this point, but I give him credit for doing that interview and saying what he said on behalf of the guys who didn't use the system even though he knew it would make him the target of everyone's hate.

    Interviews like that are the kind of things people said they wanted to hear a few days ago.

    I love B-Mac, but the idea that he, the holder of the unwritten rules, tried to but was unable to stop it is absurd.

    Correa is a lying POS

    I don't think anyone wants to hear anything from the Astros. That was kind of my point. People talk like they want them to be sorry and to be contrite and to tell details, but they don't. They just want to yell at the Astros, which is completely fine. I'd just prefer people (including other players) stop acting like they or others are mad because Houston players aren't contrite enough.

    but which of their marquee players have been contrite or sorry so far? Correa certainly doesn't fit that bill. Verlander continues to be the hypocritical coward he's always been.

    You're right that people will hate the Astros no matter what any of their players say, but their entire organization fans the flames by being completely unrepentant. Lying and calling out other players ain't it.

    I don't think they're on their knees begging for forgiveness, but the reality is anything they say about any specifics is going to be considered lies because they have no credibility, and any forgiveness they ask for is going to be denied because no one is interested in forgiving. So what's the point? Reading quotes and watching news stories looking for something to get more mad about?

    And be honest. You put the Verlander line in to hurt me because we're on slightly different sides of this.

    He's full of shit about the signs being too hard to be decoded. It takes a better or two to figure it out. 3rd sign, 2nd sign after 2, 3rd sign after 1, etc. If he throws 2 fastballs and they are both the 2nd sign after 2, bam you got it. It's not rocket science when you have a camera batter after batter.

    No, people wanted them to say "Yes we cheated our asses off and yes it helped us win a title. Sorry." not "Don't call my friend a cheater!!!"

    Are the majority of baseball fans going to forgive? No. But it's still entirely a hypothetical because nobody has attempted anything remotely close to a legitimate mea culpa, and a legitimate mea culpa involves acknowledging your title wasn't won on the up-and-up.

    I mentioned Verlander because him and Correa are the 2 highest profile players I saw make comments today about Bellinger

    Plus computers don't have feelings.

    I rewatched 1st inning of game 1, on what Suzuki was referencing. Gurriel down 0-2 then no whistle on a breaking ball then multiple whistles next pitch on a high fastball top of the zone that he nails off the wall.

    Fair enough. It's just easier for me to move on because I can understand that kind of apology was never coming because no one does that.

    I hadn't seen the Verlander quote on Bellinger before that. I don't really know what he was trying to say, which is par for the course.

    Saying I have no feelings hurts my feelings, but it's okay. My fandom is living vicariously through the Dodgers this year, anyway.

    They didn't use the trash can in 2018/2019, they just whistled.

    (Correa later clarified, off camera, that he meant the Astros did not use the trash-can banging system in 2018 or ’19.)
