I bet on my own team to win. Thatís what I did in a nutshell. I was wrong, but I didnít taint the game. I didnít try to steal any games. I never voted against my team. I bet on my team every night because thatís the confidence that I had in my players. And I was wrong. But this is a little different. Itís a lot different, actually, and I think thatís why the commissioner came down so hard. So they fire the GM, they fire the manager, and (MLB) probably is going to get (Red Sox manager) Alex Cora, who was the (Astros) bench coach at the time. But what about the players who were behind this and taking the knowledge? Should they get off scot-free? Donít you have to do something to the players who were accepting the stolen signs? Nothingís been done. Is that fair?

After MLB's investigation into the 2017 and 2018 Houston Astros stealing their opponents' signals resulted in the suspension of their GM and their coach, forfeiture of draft picks, and a fine (the GM and the coach were subsequently fired by the Astros)

Note: The Commissioner's report stated that assessing discipline of individual Astros players would be difficult, because almost all Astros players had some involvement or knowledge of the scheme and the investigative record did not determine with certainty every player who should be held accountable, and impractical, given the large number of players involved and the fact that many of those players now play for other Clubs.
