Rosenthal: Why Scott Boras says the Astros players don't need to apologize

Rosenthal: Why Scott Boras says the Astros players don't need to apologize

Manfred's comments Wednesday during an interview with Fox Business Network appeared to signal an expansion of MLB's implementation of "robot umpires".

MLB began experimenting with the computerized strike zone last season in the independent Atlantic League and the Arizona Fall League.

Manfred said baseball would start using the camera system for balls and strikes in "some of our minor league (s) this year".

"When we go to spring training, we will bring them all together and they will make a strong statement as a team, and I think we apologize for what happened and we will go forward", Crane told the Houston Sports Award on Tuesday. "It will reduce controversy in the game and be good for the game", he said.

Astros pitchers and catchers report to spring training on Thursday, Feb. 13, the first full-squad workout is scheduled for Monday, Feb. 17. "It will be available in nine spring training facilities for later use during the Florida State League season".

Zion Williamson Reacts To His First Game With The Pelicans
It took 13 weeks and a few days but the debut of Zion Williamson , the No. 1 pick of the 2019 NBA Draft, was finally here. As the season goes on, Williamson will continue to be on a minutes restriction thanks to his proneness for injuries.


MLB's investigation revealed that Astros developed a player-driven system using illegal electronics to decode signs during the game.

Major League Baseball does not intend to strip the Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox of their World Series titles as a result of the sign-stealing scandal.

Like other Dodgers and players around the league, Stripling sees a clear difference between a player picking - and relaying - signs from the bases, and the Astros using a live camera feed to steal signs in live time. Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred subsequently released a statement, penalising Astros of $5 million and 4 draft picks along with suspensions to several key Astros officials including GM Jeff Luhnow and AJ Hinch.

Cora had been bench coach for the Astros before leading Boston to the title, and an investigation into the Red Sox is ongoing. It is absolutely unclear that the Dodgers would've been the World Series champion.

"So, it's a little hard to take the trophy away from somebody who hasn't yet been found to do something wrong". I dangle no longer changed my belief about my teammates.
