AJ Hinch on whether Astros' 2017 title is 'tainted'

Dodgers Pete Rose asks MLB for reinstatement, cites Astros sign-stealing scandal

Instead, Hinch said he believed the report from the MLB Commissioner's Office that said it didn't find any wrongdoing by the Astros last season.

"It happened on my watch", Hinch said. But that wasn't enough, Manfred said. He voiced his regret, confirming that he destroyed two monitors with a bat in response to the scheme.

The lawyers say that Rose's lifetime ban is "vastly disproportionate" when compared with MLB's punishments of players who took performance-enhancing drugs and the players involved in the sign-stealing schemes by the 2017 Houston Astros. Not long after, Houston owner Jim Crane fired Hinch, along with general manager Jeff Luhnow. Instead, it looks more like Manfred and company just want to move on, perhaps fearful that the more they dig, the more they'll discover that other teams use this method of sign stealing, further casting their sport in a light of disrepute.

"It's a fair question and I think everyone will have to draw their own conclusion".

Of all of those, I guess you'd have to say Kimbrel's is the most conceivable, since he's already kinda had a season like that in his career.

"Unfortunately, we opened that door as a group, and that question, it may never be answered. I can't pinpoint what advantages (the Astros gained) or. what exactly would have happened otherwise, but we did it to ourselves".

Shares traded up about 2.8% just after Wednesday's open, at $325.40 in a 52-week range of $302.72 to $446.01. Net losses for the year totalled $636 million, down from a profit of £10.4 billion in 2019.

"I wish I would have", Hinch said.

"But I understand the question".

Hinch declined to criticize Fiers for his role in breaking the scandal, saying, "I wish I would have had an environment and a culture that was better for him to have come to me in real time".

Verducci began by asking Hinch to recount the events of January 13, the day the commissioner released his report detailing the findings of a three-month investigation of allegations that stemmed from a report in The Athletic built on on-the-record information from former Houston pitcher Mike Fiers. I know you mentioned the emails and the texts and the messages.

Evidence of their foul play immediately began to emerge as the team was accused of setting up a camera and telling players what pitch was coming by banging on a trash can (or, according to some rumors, harnessing electric buzzers that were hidden under their jerseys). "I love being in the center hubcap of that wheel that makes it all go around".
