This should be good! The two players who were unequivocally unprepared to answer questions about the Houston Astros' sign-stealing scandal during the team's FanFest earlier this offseason will now be joining owner Jim Crane and manager Dusty Baker at the podium on Thursday to address the media.

Fans should have a blast watching Alex Bregman and Jose Altuve attempt to answer hard-hitting questions from reporters who have been steeped with anticipation for this exact moment.

In case you don't remember, during the Astros' FanFest, both Altuve and Bregman had nothing worth writing home about when responding to questions about the scandal that has rocked baseball for months now.

Altuve's answer? The Astros will be back in the World Series in 2020. Bregman's? The commissioner "made his report." Not only did these answers provide nothing of substance (in addition to being somewhat insulting), but it proved further organizational chaos considering there was no plan for the Astros' best players to address the topic.

The flip side? We're sure there will be many manufactured answers prepared for these two during Wednesday's press conference, so expect much of the same just in a completely different context.
