As far as the Mike Trout comment goes, this is baseball's version of the me too movement.

This is a pretty gross statement for a variety of reasons.

As far as the Mike Trout comment goes, this is baseball's version of the me too movement. They play in the same division so of course he and the Angels are "angels"and the Astros are a bunch of bums. Its an image thing. It seems that the MLB brass is more in agreement with me than with those who think the whole Astros team should be banned from baseball. They got caught with their hand in the cookie jar, so what?

No one can prove they won a single game because of it and in spite of immunity granted no player has stated that it led to a single victory. Many say that Bobby Thompson knew the pitch that Ralph Branca threw before the shot heard around the world.

( I admit that I have been a devils advocate in this and I apologize for that. No more. Go Twins!)

Cheating at baseball is nothing like being abused by someone more powerful than you and afraid to say anything because you won't be believed.Mike Trout is allowed to have an opinion on a subject. He said it. I really would like you to explain to me how that is similar to a woman coming forward with abuse. If you think the moderators will get upset, please PM me.
