Astros’ Bregman, Altuve Apologize for Sign-Stealing Scheme

The Astros Gave A Pathetic Excuse For An Apology Over Cheating And Got Roasted

The commissioner also has not sought to strip the team of its 2017 World Series win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. "We especially feel remorse for the impact on the fans and the game of baseball, and our team is determined to move forward, to play with intensity and to bring back a championship to Houston in 2020".

Houston Astros players and coaches offered an apology Thursday in the wake of a sign-stealing scandal that sent shock waves throughout Major League Baseball. "Our opinion is that this didn't impact the game. We won the World Series and we'll leave it at that", Crane said, according to ESPN. We as a team are totally focused on moving forward to the 2020 season. Shortly afterwards, Crane issued a caveat that seemingly contradicted his first statement: "I didn't say it didn't impact the game", he said.

When pressed later in the news conference about whether he thought the sign-stealing, which told batters which pitch was about to be thrown, offered an advantage, Crane said: "It could possibly do that, it could possibly not". Then, without even taking a breath, he called out Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred by name for his decision not to punish players who were caught cheating. They had months to figure out the best way to handle this and they apparently settled on being a real-life version of that GIF where the guy walks to the vehicle with a handful of things only to slip and drop them all in spectacular fashion.

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

Johnson's office had earlier said the Cabinet changes would be modest, and apart from Javid most senior ministers kept their jobs. Before the shock announcement about the occupier of 11 Downing Street, a number of other ministers were removed from their roles.

However, it's abundantly clear from the press conference, that not everyone in the Astros organization "feels bad" about what happened in 2017.

The money quote, cleaned up (full version with language warning here): "For nobody to stand up and nobody to say we're cheating other players, that (stinks)".

Crane reiterated similar expressions, noting "again how sorry our team is for what happened", that "this will never happen again on my watch" and said he does not believe players should be punished because "leaders enabled, condoned and did not stop actions that happened". "But to go in the tunnel, change your shirt, and then come out and do your interview - that makes no sense to me".
