Mike Trout Calls for Major League Baseball to Punish Players In Astros Cheating Scandal


That was the stance of Commissioner Rob Manfred. "Hopefully it will be over soon and we'll get to see the truth".

And now there's this... the MLBPA says he lied about having to give the players' immunity from punishment. "The way he handled the situation, he should be embarrassed of himself", Markakis said, per ESPN.

The biggest name in the sports world has spoken out about the Houston Astros cheating scandal.

"I ain't commenting on everybody's comments".

"It's anger", Markakis said.

"I thought the apologies were whatever", Bellinger told reporters.

Houston eventually hired veteran Dusty Baker to be its manager while Gibbons was hired Monday by the Atlanta Braves as a special assignment scout.

Major League Baseball fined the Astros $5 million and handed out one-year bans to manager A.J. Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow. The club were also fined $5m and stripped of draft picks but no Astros players will be punished.

Manfred issued a report last month detailing Houston's cheating scheme during its 2017 World Series championship season involving a video monitor and a trash can located near the team's home dugout. The fans, and many players, rebuttal to that has been a cry of "At least you could have tried!" "I still think there's some stuff we don't know". "I 100 per cent disagree the way with the way they did it. There's a lot of people that were hurt by it, and it was wrong".

"Because we were at a stalemate and knew we needed player witnesses, we agreed to that", Manfred said. "I think they got off pretty easy".

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James took to Twitter on Tuesday to blast the Astros for cheating throughout the 2017 postseason - during which Houston won its first World Series title.

Cheating has always been a dark underbelly of sports across multiple leagues, and while LeBron James isn't known for his prowess on a baseball diamond, the Lakers star felt the need to speak up about the state of the MLB. Manfred said he found no evidence of that, but many point to Altuve's behavior following his series-clinching home run against Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman in the 2019 American League Championship Series as proof that something amusing was going on in the Astros dugout as recently as last season. "Mike did the industry a service".
