For the last three months or so, MLB has been investigating the Houston Astros on allegations that the club had devised a system to steal signs illegally using technology. This much you already know.
Now on Monday, Commissioner Rob Manfred finally announced the punishment Houston would face for their crimes.
In the time between November 12, 2019, and January 13, 2020, multiple players and members of the Dodgers organization shared their thoughts on the then allegations at various events over the winter.
With MLB issuing a mandate that organizations and active players not comment on the Astros’ punishment, we review what was said up before Monday’s punishment.
As Houston now deals with the ramifications of its actions, Dodgers fans are still left with the “what if” of a lifetime — the robbery of a world championship and a World Series parade down the streets of Los Angeles.
Honestly, the Dodgers should just host a World Series parade. Let's get Yu his jersey and let's get Andre Ethier the party he deserves. https://t.co/E5p7Cjr8aP

Let’s all hope that this eats at the souls of everyone complicit with the crimes committed.
