It took months, but the Houston Astros finally apologized for the team’s 2017 sign-stealing scandal. The team held a press conference Thursday in which Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman read prepared statements and owner Jim Crane answered questions. Following that presser, the Astros opened the clubhouse, giving Astros players the opportunity to address the issue.
For months, this is all many around the game wanted. Opposing players wanted the Astros to take accountability for cheating and show remorse for their actions.
If the early reactions are to be believed, opposing players — and former players — weren’t satisfied with what they heard from the Astros on Thursday.
