Marwin Gonzalez becomes first Astros hitter to apologize for cheating: 'I'm remorseful for everything that happened'

  Marwin Gonzalez becomes first Astros hitter to apologize for cheating: 'I'm remorseful for everything that happened' Houston Astros players emerged largely unscathed from the cheating scandal that took over baseball’s winter. Their manager was fired, so was there GM. The team was fined. Draft picks were taken away. But players? Well, they got immunity for cooperating with MLB’s investigation. Carlos Beltran was the only 2017 Astros player to face any type of punishment, and even that didn’t come from MLB but rather the Mets firing him before he’d ever managed a game.© Provided by Yahoo! Sports Marwin Gonzalez, now with the Twins, apologized Tuesday for his role in the 2017 Astros cheating scandal.

The Houston Astros organization have been condemned as Public Enemy No. 1 in Major League Baseball in the early days of spring training. This has come about not only for the egregiousness of the acts committed during its sign-stealing scheme but also for the team’s arguably appalling lack of remorse over the scandal.

Cleveland Indians pitcher Mike Clevinger zeroed in on the latter recently while weighing in on the backlash to the Astros’ initial handling of the situation. Houston’s so-called apology tour began last week and was mercilessly ridiculed for coming off as insincere, half-hearted and unconvincing.

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Indians pitcher Mike Clevinger took aim at the Houston Astros again on Friday night, speaking to reporters Clevinger has been outspoken since MLB sanctioned the Astros for using video equipment to steal pitching signs during their 2017 World Series championship run.

Astros whistleblower Mike Fiers says he's received death threats but won't give back his World Series ring. In the ever-turning Houston Astros cheating saga, attention has now shifted back to Mike Fiers, the former Astros pitcher who blew the whistle on the entire cheating scheme.

Clevinger made his feelings known about the Astros’ widely panned efforts to make amends over the sign-stealing scandal during an appearance on Barstool Sports’ “Starting 9” podcast.

“Why would you need a piece of paper to say sorry for being the biggest piece of s*** in baseball history? I don’t understand that, but they did,” Clevinger said. “They needed a piece of paper and read it like a robot. First I’ve ever heard those boys talk about it.

“They just keep on referring to one year when everybody in the right mind knows it was every single year and they just got caught.”

An endless parade of players speaking out against the Astros has been without question the most prevailing storyline of spring training, not to mention the most damning one from Major League Baseball’s perspective.

  VIDEO: Nick Markakis Calls for Astros Players to Catch a 'Beating' for Sign-Stealing Scandal Go ahead and add Atlanta Braves right fielder Nick Markakis to the long list of players who is furious with the Houston Astros right now. The team's sign-stealing scandal has turned Major League Baseball upside down, with each passing day only bringing more shame to Houston. For Markakis, he truly sounded like a disappointed parent while calling out the Astros.

It took Oakland pitcher Mike Fiers’ public allegations, Melvin said, to spur the league to launch the investigation that led to sanctions and suspensions levied against the Astros .

The fact that MLB commissioner Rob Manfred has also been blasted for some questionable comments while reacting to criticism of league’s handling of the situation has not helped at all, either.

Given the ongoing fallout from the Astros’ botched attempts to turn the page on the scandal — which has seemingly motivated some Astros players to embrace the role of villains amid the controversy — Clevinger will certainly not be the last major leaguer to sound off on the situation.
