Since the MLB season is just around the corner, several members of the Houston Astros are speaking up about the cheating scandal heard around the league. Carlos Correa was the latest member of the team to share his thoughts on what happened.

While the league already came down hard on the Astros for stealing signs, the latest accusations have to do with the team using buzzers to alert their hitters of what pitch would be next. There isn't any legitimate evidence that proves this theory is true at the moment.

During the ALCS between the Houston Astros and New York Yankees, Jose Altuve hit a walk-off home run off Aroldis Chapman. When he was rounding third base and on his way home, he told his teammates to not rip his jersey off. According to Correa, the reason Altuve didn't want his teammates to tug at his uniform is because he had an unfinished tattoo

"The second reason - he doesn't want me to talk about this but I'm going to say it, is because he's got an unfinished tattoo on his collarbone, that honestly looked terrible," Correa said. "It was a bad tattoo and he didn't want nobody to see it. He didn't want to show it at all."

As you'd expect, there aren't many fans out there that believe Correa.

The majority of people are speculating that Altuve didn't want the public to see that he was wearing a buzzer - once again, it's merely speculation at this time.

Houston was punished for its actions by the league, but the national outrage regarding this situation will not go away anytime soon.
