I’m a dodger fan. So, I guess I have just as much of a right to be upset as anyone. But, it’s interesting to think how all of this could have happened.
Yes, they cheated. But, the bench coach and the veteran leader were the ones that were the heads of the operation. So, if you’re a younger player who has never played for another team you might just assume that every team is doing something like this. No one from upper management told you to stop. So, you figure this must be what all big league teams do. And, as a side note, maybe in a couple years we will find out that there were others that had systems in place like this.
I do want the players to be remorseful. And, once they got in the locker room I thought their statements were much better. And, yes, the owner is an idiot for what he said yesterday. But, I do have a little sympathy for the Astros players. Maybe I’m being naive, but I’m starting to think that they really didn’t think what they did was that bad until a month ago when the report came out.
