The Astros’ cheating scandal just keeps on getting worse – especially after Jim Crane’s contradicting comments regarding the situation on Thursday. Yankees manager Aaron Boone is the latest to respond to the whole ordeal.
Crane affirmed on Tuesday that while the Astros did break the rules, it didn’t necessarily have an impact on wins and losses. Of course, that couldn’t be further from the truth. However which way Crane intends to spin this scandal, Houston’s cheating methods had a direct impact on the outcome of games.
It’s absolutely bizarre as to how the Astros continue to try and manage this entire situation. Even the players are relatively unapologetic and lack accountability for their horrific actions.
After hearing Crane’s comments on the cheating scandal, Yankees manager Aaron Boone is the latest to respond. Boone thinks it’s “quite a stretch” for Crane to believe stealing signs didn’t have an impact on the game, according to YES Network’s Jack Curry.
Boone was asked about Crane saying that sign stealing didn’t have an impact on games. “That’s quite a stretch, I think,” Boone said. While Boone said we don’t know the extent of the impact, the cheating obviously had an impact.

The Astros have already turned into the villains of Major League Baseball. After Crane’s horrific press conference on Thursday, Houston’s target on its back has seemingly doubled.
There’s no way the Astros are going to get out of this scandal. The best thing Crane and the players could’ve done is own up to the wrongdoing.
But after failing to do so, the rest of Major League Baseball is taking notice. This isn’t going to end well.
