Alex Bregman apologizes for the Astros stealing signs using electronic means
quote:

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Houston Astros players Alex Bregman and José Altuve said Thursday the team is sorry for its sign-stealing scheme that was investigated and punished by Major League Baseball.

“I am really sorry,” Bregman said.

Astros owner Jim Crane and new manager Dusty Baker — who replaced the fired AJ Hinch — also spoke at a news conference at the team’s spring training facility.

“We cannot take back what happened,” Crane said.

MLB did not punish any players for the cheating and Crane said he stood by that.

We’re not going to do anything to the players,” the owner said.

The investigation found that the Astros used the video feed from a center field camera to view and decode opposing catcher’s signs. Players banged on a trash can to signal to batters what was coming, believing it would improve chances of getting a hit.

Sounds like something you say when you’re... not sorry.

Some of the Astros players like Bregman and Altuva and managers like Hinch and Cora might need to go find work in Japan for awhile.

Well, I assume they get the Pete Rose treatment at the end of their careers?

Hasn’t this been going on forever in baseball? Didn’t people say Bobby Thompson’s walkoff was because of someone behind the scoreboard with binoculars stealing signals?

Ha. MLB treats blatant cheaters differently than gamblers.

Screw that. The players still had to hit the ball. If you ain't cheating, you ain't trying. The only difference now is there was one player who got his feelings hurt and wanted to be a bitch. This has been going on forever.

Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens aren't in. It will take awhile for the roid era players to get in.

You're completely wrong here. You don't think there is a huge difference when you know a curve ball is coming and if you know a change up is coming?

If you think cheating is trying, that's truly a warped sense of trying! GTFO with this bull shite. Yeah stealing signals may have been around forever, but it's still fricking cheating. Bregman's reputation is screwed!

I actually think that this sign scandal will help the roid players.

Stealing signs isn't going to stop. It's part of baseball. Tough. Get over it. The Astros just did it better.

Bregmans rep isn't screwed. Playing defense the way he does, his rep is far from being screwed.

This is like 10 girls having sex and one gets pregnant. She looks like the ho when in truth all 10 were ho's.

You want him to get on his knees and beg for forgiveness? Breg didn’t have to say shite. I’m loving the faux outrage though

They were great players before the roids. They should be in. How many NFL players are in because of a secret substance ?

Using steroids gives you more power. It doesn’t help you hit better.
Stealing signs helps you hit better.
