Over the weekend, business picked up at Camelback Ranch in Arizona. Of course we are talking about when Cody Bellinger kicked off the weekend by going hard on the Houston Astros and MLB commissioner Rob Manfred.
From there, a ripple effect seemed to happen off Bellinger’s original comments. For instance, Carlos Correa clapped back at the MVP. In fact, Correa had so much to say in his rebuttal we had to break it down in two stories.
Now that he’s had the chance to get it off his check, Bill Plunkett of the OC Register asks him if he has any regrets on what he said. In true fashion – as you would hope – Bellinger stands his ground.
#Dodgers Cody Bellinger says he has “no regrets” about his comments and no reaction to Carlos Correa’s response. “I said what I wanted to say.” Opinion hasn’t changed

The Los Angeles Dodgers’ outfielder says he has no regrets.
“I said what I wanted to say.”
Obviously, a few days did not change his opinion on a faux event that changed legacies. Indeed, we are talking about the 2017 World Series.
Enter to Win a Cody Bellinger Jersey!
In summary, this issue is not just burying itself like Manfred likely hoped at the outset of the story. Calls for the Astros to vacate the 2017 title are getting louder. The game seven starting pitcher of that 2017 World Series – Yu Darvish – came out and defended Bellinger publicly.
For the Houston Astros, it could be a very long month. Perhaps they should look forward to when the real games begin because until then, it appears that they will be fielding questions about this subject matter. And if you want to talk Astros’ sign-stealing, it’s best to stay out of Cody Bellinger’s kitchen with it. As we know, that’s going to ignite a fire.
