New York Yankee Giancarlo Stanton made a bold proclamation when weighing in on the Houston Astros’ sign-stealing scandal, and it’s all about how a slugger like him could benefit from such ill-begotten inside knowledge.
Stanton joined the chorus of major leaguers who have weighed in on the Astros’ cheating. The majority of the comments unsurprisingly have been extremely vitriolic. Stanton’s sentiments followed that general theme.
Reacting to how the Astros organization compromised the integrity of the game by stealing signs, specifically during the 2017 season on the way to a World Series title, Stanton injected some of his own history from that season into the narrative.
Addressing the Astros scandal more broadly, Stanton echoed New York Yankees teammate Aaron Judge in arguing that Houston should be stripped of their 2017 World Series title.
