The headlines on Thursday featuring Alex Bregman’s name won’t be kind.
On Thursday morning, Bregman and teammate Jose Altuve delivered prepared statements to the media apologizing for the Houston Astros’ sign stealing scandal that took place in 2017-18.
The immediate social media reaction to Bregman’s statement wasn’t surprising.
