Trevor Bauer blasts Houston Astros for sign stealing scheme

MLB got wrong with Astros what European soccer gets right


GOODYEAR, Ariz. – After throwing a bullpen session on Friday afternoon, Cincinnati Reds pitcher Trevor Bauer probably knew he was going to be asked about the Houston Astros’ sign-stealing scandal when he stood in front of his locker. 

Bauer was outspoken, as always, on Twitter after the story surfaced in November and Major League Baseball began its investigation. He publicly feuded with the Astros in 2018 when he said Astros pitchers were using foreign substances to enhance the spin on their pitches.

When Bauer was asked why it was important for him to be outspoken against the Astros, he had an 8-minute, 10-second response.

“If you come at me, I feel like I have every right to defend myself,” Bauer said. “Now they’ve chosen to make it about me and attack my character. I’m not going to let them forget the fact that they are hypocrites, they are cheaters, they’ve stolen from a lot of other people and the game itself was completely unfair.
