Undeniably, any time you hear one of the Los Angeles Dodgers speak about the Houston Astros’ cheating scandal; one must wonder how much they think of the imposed MLB gag order. Still, some Dodgers were willing to speak about the matter at Dodgers Fanfest this past Saturday.
Already, we have heard Justin Turner be fairly outspoken about the issue. While Dodgers Nation was in attendance, Chris Taylor took a certain stance on the subject. You can see the full segment below, and read on to see that Taylor wants to be finished talking about the Astros.
Initially, Taylor didn’t hold back words when asked about the Astros’ sign stealing scandal.
“It’s frustrating. I think everyone is frustrated about it you know but it doesn’t do any good to look back at it and think about the ‘what if’s’. The only thing we can really do is look forward to the 2020 season.”
Next, Taylor said he didn’t see Dallas Keuchel’s public apology. Therefore, he had no comment about the apology itself. Then Taylor was asked if he still thinks about the ‘what if’s’ had the Astros been forced to play the 2017 Dodgers on a level playing field.
“Honestly, I’m just really tired of talking about it and thinking about it. I really just want to move past it and move on.”
Finally, Taylor went on to say he spent the off-season fine tuning his swing. Obviously this is important for a hitter like Taylor because we have seen what he can do when his stroke is feeling in-sync.
As an integral part of the 2020 Dodgers’ depth, it sounds like Taylor has the right attitude. He’s looking forward and not in the rear view mirror. Besides, what good would that do anyone? It would be great to see Taylor – who had some huge knocks in the 2017 World Series – be part of a team that finally wins the whole thing for Los Angeles.
