Jon Lester blasts MLB's Rob Manfred: "That's somebody who's never played our game"

"I feel like every single guy over there needs a beating", said the 36-year-old heading into his 15th season.

Markakis wasn't happy with commissioner Rob Manfred, either.

"I had a long day on Sunday", Manfred said. But that's the way he did it and we got to live with that.

"I don't agree with the punishments, the players not getting anything", Trout said. "He should be embarrassed of himself". The club was among the game's elite from 2017-19, but its accomplishments from that span are now in question as a result of a sign-stealing scheme.

"I ain't commenting on everybody's comments". "I didn't think Markakis talked too much".

The Houston Astros continued to relay stolen signs to batters by banging on trash cans throughout the 2017 postseason, which ended with them defeating the Dodgers in the World Series. The fans, and many players, rebuttal to that has been a cry of "At least you could have tried!" I think what people don't realize is Altuve stole an MVP from Judge in '17.

"There's right ways to do it and wrong ways to do it", Markakis explained.

"I hoped it would be over with, but they want to make sure they're doing a thorough investigation and I guess it takes a while", he said.

Carlos Beltrán, the only Astros player mentioned in the MLB report, was not disciplined by the league but was let go in his new role as New York Mets manager. "Mike did the industry a service". "You cheated. It wasn't earned". "It was a player-driven thing".
