The MVP didn’t hold anything back

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at San Diego Padres Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

On February 13, the Astros finally issued a public apology, if you want to call it that. Owner Jim Crane, along with players Alex Bregman and Jose Altuve “apologized” for their roles in the cheating scandal.

Let’s be real. They didn’t mean anything they said. Both players spoke for about a minute, and Houston’s owner essentially denied everything. It didn’t go unnoticed by the fans, and it certainly didn’t go unnoticed by the players.

Across social media yesterday, multiple players spoke out, voicing their frustration with how the press conference was handled. Today, Cody Bellinger, the 2019 National League MVP, provided his thoughts on the whole situation.

He’s clearly upset, and deservingly so.

He also added this on the Altuve walk-off home run to send the Astros to the World Series this past season, per Jorge Castillo of the LA Times.

This isn’t the first time Bellinger has voiced his opinion on the matter. Last month when the punishments were dished out, this is what he tweeted.

Here’s what else he had to say today.

Although there isn’t video of the full interview, here are snippets from ESPN. He’s clearly frustrated and angry.

In addition, Alex Wood spoke with the media today about the Astros, and was quite vocal about the issue.

This isn’t the first time Wood has voiced his opinion on the Astros. Last month, he tweeted a few things, clearly showing how upset he was with the entire situation.
