Alex Rodriguez Angered By Lack of Remorse Shown by Cheating Astros
Baseball legend Alex Rodriguez has taken aim at MLB team the Houston Astros for seemingly showing no remorse following the sign-stealing scandal that has led to a number of members of the club’s hierarchy fired.
General manager Jef Luhnow and manager A.J. Hinch were suspended and then fired after the MLB found the Astros guilty of using video feed from a center field camera to record and decode the opposition catcher’s signs back in 2017, the year they won their first World Series title.
Thus far there hasn’t been much in the way of any apologies from the Astros and they have been roundly booed and heckled during spring training and now 44-year-old former New York Yankees third baseman is angered by the complete lack of remorse shown by the Houston side.
“I think the one thing that has really upset the fans is, you cheat, you win a championship, there is no suspension and there is no remorse. And the last one I think is probably the worst one because people want to see remorse”.
Reflecting on his own suspensions, for positive doping tests, Rodriguez continued;
“I served the longest suspension in Major League Baseball history. It cost me well over $35 million and, you know what? I deserved that and, as a result, I came back, I owned it after acting like a buffoon for a long time.”
‘You’ve (the Astros) earned all this negative talk. You’ve earned whatever comes your way, including whether it’s being hit by a pitch or negative press, you have divorced yourself from having the ability to protect yourself”.
