VIDEO: AJ Hinch Refusing to Answer Questions About Buzzer System is Pretty Much Admission of Guilt

In a revealing interview with Tom Verducci, former Houston Astros manager AJ Hinch discussed the team's sign-stealing scandal which has rocked the MLB this offseason.

Fans across the league were hoping to learn some more information about the Astros' alleged use of buzzers, however, Hinch refused to comment on the matter. His silence, however, was very telling, effectively coming off as an admission of guilt from Hinch.

Towards the end of the interview, Verducci pressed Hinch on the topic of the use of buzzers. Instead of denying the allegations, the former manager simply referred to Rob Manfred and the league's investigation.

"We got investigated for three months, and the commissioner's office did as thorough of an investigation as anyone could imagine was possible," Hinch said in what was effectively a non-answer.

While Hinch didn't outright admit to the use of buzzers by Astros player, his lack of a denial was pretty revealing, and fans across the league were less than pleased with his answers.

Hinch's attempt at an apology will surely not sit well with the already furious fans of the sport, and his efforts to dodge the serious questions presented by Verducci were just embarrassing.
