    His biggest issue is consistency with his movement, sometimes that shit breaks a lot, other times it breaks the other way, and other times it don't break at all

    For those who don’t get the Ace Of Base reference, they were a popular band back in 1994. Little did they know, they were singing the theme song for the 2020 Astros:

    I'm not a cop means Im not out for justice of the law.
    Or am I interested with asking the authorities to make justice.
    I'm not motivated by someone getting busted. I'm more motivated by the contrition in a person's face.
    That's as much blood as I'm interested in taking.
    I'm not a fan of charges as punishment.
    This is an internal baseball matter and baseball should handle it right.

    Plus If I am more enthused about some things over others it's simply a matter of taste and affinity.

    And don't worry bout missing the codes.
    Happens to me all the time when you old fuckers start waxing on grooves or flicks.
    Or the analytic retentive young ones get rambunctious with their jungle jingles and jangles.

    Yeah, thanks for making me feel even older.

    I think someone here needs to make a new Astros song called “I Stole the Signs”.

    I stole the signs
    And it opened up my eyes

    Now I’m living it up
    And here’s where I belong

    Correa says Astros won World Series fair and square
    ESPN — 37 minutes ago

    After days of hearing his team and teammates be criticized across the majors, Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa spoke out Saturday, telling The Athletic that players on other teams -- particularly the Los Angeles Dodgers' Cody Bellinger -- are not informed enough when they address the sign-stealing scandal or 2017 American League MVP Jose Altuve.

    "The problem I have is when players go out there and they don't know the facts, they're not informed about the situation, and they just go out there and go on camera and just talk," Correa said in an interview that will air on MLB Network.

    Correa, as he did to reporters Thursday, conceded that the Astros stealing signs in 2017 was "wrong" but added that comments about Houston continuing to cheat are off base.

    "When he (Bellinger) talks about that we cheated for three years, he either doesn't know how to read, is really bad at reading comprehension or is just not informed at all," Correa told The Athletic. "The commissioner's report clearly says that all those activities were conducted in 2017. 2018 nothing happened. 2019 nothing happened. It was just talented players, playing the game of baseball with passion and winning ballgames."

    According to commissioner Rob Manfred's investigation into the Astros, the team used two illegal technological methods to steal signs throughout the 2017 season and for part of the 2018 season, though the summary noted there was no evidence that the team used a trash can to clue players into pitches in 2018.

    In Correa's mind, the Astros earned and deserved their 2017 title. He broke down the runs the team scored in the World Series to The Athletic and noted that the title-clinching Game 7 was played in Los Angeles with "no cheating on the road."

    "When you analyze the games, we won fair and square," Correa said. "We earned that championship."

    Correa also said that teammate Altuve -- along with Josh Reddick and Tony Kemp -- was among the players not to take part in the trash-can cheating. Altuve would, according to Correa, confront others if he heard a trash-can bang during his at-bats.

    "He would say, 'I don't want this. I can't hit like this. Don't you do that to me,'" Correa said. "He played the game clean."

    That defense was made in part to legitimize Altuve's MVP Award. Bellinger had said that Altuve "stole" the award from the New York Yankees' Aaron Judge, drawing this response from Correa: "Cody, you don't know the facts."

    Regarding reports that Altuve may have had a buzzer system inside his jersey, Correa pointed to an earlier incident in which he ripped his teammate's jersey and said the second baseman was trying to hide an unfinished tattoo.

    "Altuve has played the game clean. Always. Always," Correa told The Athletic. "He earned that MVP. He hit that home run off (Aroldis) Chapman, fair and square."

    Correa also defended Astros owner Jim Crane's apology as coming from someone who "doesn't play the game of baseball" and acknowledged the hurt to see manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow fired. But he is turning his attention to the 2020 season.

    "This year, we want to go out and show the fans that we are talented, that we can play the game, that we can win ballgames," Correa said. "That what happened in 2017 does not define us. We still feel terrible. It's 2020, two-and-something years after that happened, and we still feel bad about it. We go to bed thinking about that.

    "What people have to say, that's all their right. Because we were wrong. And they can say whatever they want. Because we were wrong. But when players stand up there and they accuse (us) of stuff that didn't happen in 2019, that doesn't sit well with me."

    There aren't enough languages in which I might tell Correa to fuck his own mother. But I'll learn that phrase in as many as I'm able to so I can tell him so if we ever meet.

    ^lol at correa attempting to exonerate altuve, reddick and kemp
    see buck weaver/1919...
    if you knew about cheating and did nothing, you're still just as guilty
    all you fucken douchebags should be banned for life
    and lol at the "talented players, playing the game of baseball with passion and winning ballgames" remark
    if all that's true, then why did you have to cheat?
    to paraphrase the great @THINKBLUE... fuck off, go get aids, and die
