New Houston Manager Dusty Baker to MLB: Tell Teams to Stop the Comments on Astros

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Dusty Baker wants action from Major League Baseball: End the criticism of the Astros from across baseball over sign stealing, and take steps to ensure pitchers don’t throw at his players.

“It’s not good for the game, it’s not good for kids to see it, so I think both,” the new Houston manager said Saturday. “Stop the comments and also stop something before it happens.”

Baker spoke in response to a wave of harsh comments during spring training about the Astros’ use of video to steal signs in 2017 and 2018. Los Angeles Dodger first baseman Cody Bellinger said Friday the Astros “stole” the 2017 World Series title from them and adds that Jose Altuve did likewise with the MVP, denying the Yankees’ Aaron Judge.

Houston players, management and ownership spent the first day of camp apologizing for their actions and professing remorse. But many players and front offices around the league didn’t feel they went far enough.

Washington general manager Mike Rizzo said he wanted to hear the Astros use the word “cheated” when addressing the situation.

1. Sad. I used to respect that dude.

“It’s not good for the game, it’s not good for kids to see it"

Gee, Dusty maybe the cheating itself wasn't so good for the game and the kids.
