At Last, An Astros Hitter Fully Owns What They Did: Marwin Gonzalez Apologizes

Chicago Cubs

At long last, a Houston Astros hitter – one who had an otherworldly 2017 season, too – has owned it all and apologized for the sign-stealing scandal.

It really, really sucks that it happened, but kudos to Marwin Gonzalez for this:

This is how to handle the situation. We all know what the players did. There is no sense in trying to hide behind it with half-acknowledgements and soft apologies. Own the whole thing, apologize for what you did, acknowledge the players that it hurt, and then try to sin no more.

I tend to think, with Spring Training happening and former (2017-18) Astros players on other clubs, we’re going to see more of this – because these guys now have teammates whom they have wronged. What will be more interesting is how the Astros players who are still with the Astros handle things.
