Good questions. Also, whether all these apologies we're suddenly hearing are really contrite. I don't believe so. I think the players are afraid of more penalties so they think they'd better get that out there.

Yeah, it's interesting how one by one, they are making such statements, as we were promised a few weeks ago that they would.

I could not believe their owner saying it made no difference! Then why did they do it?

Now, Dusty is asking Major League Baseball to protect Astros hitters this year!

There's even an O/U on how many times the Astros will get plunked!

And everyone is weighing in on this--from Mike Trout to Rojo Chingon.

Also, Astros shortstop Carlos Correa criticized Cody for his criticism of the Astros' compromising several outcomes of the 2017 season, particularly Cody's comments about Jose Altuve robbing Yankees slugger Aaron Judge of the MVP that season. That story is linked here.

And Commissioner Rob Manfred is doing himself no favors, appearing to cower in the face of the MLBPA. Manfred's comments on-site at Grapefruit League media day have caused some fans to nickname him "Manfraud" and call for his resignation.

All I can say is it is a good thing the Dodgers play in the Cactus League and the Astros in the Grapefruit League. According to CBS Sports, the Astros are saying everyone should just shut up about it and especially your boys. Article linked here
