Dodgers: Alex Wood, Cody Bellinger Speak Out on Astros Cheating Scandal

Wood is already proving to be a welcome re-addition.

The Dodgers recently agreed to terms with left-hander Alex Wood on a one-year deal to put him back in Dodger blue. Wood was a member of the 2017 club that lost to the cheating Houston Astros in the World Series. He was a key factor in that series, at one point throwing a five inning no hitter. He was then traded to the Cincinnati Reds in the off-season. However, he is now proving to be a welcome addition to the 2020 club.

With all of the allegations and the eventual conviction of cheating by Major League Baseball against the Houston Astros, Alex Wood took to Twitter to express his thoughts on the matter.

Wood quoted a tweet from Cody Bellinger where Bellinger expresses his distaste for some of the Astros’ players and their integrity inside of the league.

It is good to hear some of the Dodgers speak out and watch their refusal to be silenced take place on Twitter in real time. Wood also had his own personal thoughts:

That makes total sense. What the Astros did goes beyond steroids and it appears that the final outcome has yet to even be seen. There are now allegations against Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman for wearing buzzing devices during games to aid in sign stealing. It doesn’t stop, folks.

  1. Alex Bregman’s father is the most prominent attorney in the State of New Mexico. Wouldn’t you know an attorney’s son would be a cheat.

    • That’s a stretch calling Sam Bregman THE most prominent attorney in NM although in his own mind he surely is.
      Many of us are sick of Alex and his arrogance but his work ethic growing up was always beyond reproach. He made himself an MLB player.

  2. Manfred better do more especially if there’s even more things coming out about the players. If he fails I’m taking matters into my own hands with my network of vigilantes

  3. I adamantly believe that these players, individually, should be held accountable for their actions. Wearing buzzers????If true, the Astros took cheating to an entirely different level that cannot be minimized. So no, this is not the same as the sign stealing runner on 2nd base trying to decode. These Astros’ hitters knew, with certainty, what pitches were coming and smugly acted as if their skills were that good. I think about some of the Astros interviews and the cheating is even more disturbing. I am so glad that Dodgers are speaking out to provide us a direct perspective of the negative impact.

  4. Given the consequences dealt directly to the Dodgers, they should be compensated. The Astros can keep their tainted trophy. Allow the Dodgers to draft a few players from the Astros system to hurt the Astros ability to compete and help the Dodgers restore theirs. Lets also force the Astros to wear buzzers in their uniforms….controlled by the Dodgers,
