As if the statements from Houston Astros owner Jim Crane and star players Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman weren't enough, we now have former 'Stros pitcher Dallas Keuchel downplaying the team's role in compromising the integrity of the sport with their sign-stealing. Keuchel, if you remember correctly, apologized for the team's role in the whole ordeal, but now seems to be backtracking.
As if that statement didn't earn enough scoffs across Major League Baseball, Keuchel continued, by claiming they weren't the only team to use illegal means to gain an advantage. Rather, they were the ones who got caught.
Did Crane receive apology advice from Keuchel? Because both statements are eerily similar to one another.
While Keuchel and various members of the Astros feel they rightfully won the World Series, it's going to be difficult to convince other fanbases to feel the same way. The league offices found them guilty of cheating and gaining a competitive advantage.
That's all you need to know.
