Astros players take jabs at Yankees after judge orders unsealing of MLB sign-stealing letter

Houston Astro members did not have such a subtle bump against the New on Saturday morning, just a few hours after a federal judge ordered the unseal of a letter from 2017 that allegedly lists "more serious" breaches of sign theft by New York York Yankees running.
According to Evan Drellich of The Athletic, the judge at the US District Court Jed S. Rakoff ordered that this letter be unsealed on Friday. The verdict came after plaintiffs, a group of DraftKings players accusing Major League Baseball, Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros of cheating them in the recent scandal of sign theft, alleged that the letter proves the duality of Commissioner Rob Manfred on illegal signs - theft.
At this point in time, no details of the letter were made public.

Judge Rakoff announces that much of the letter content has already been revealed in a league press release dated September 15, 2017. Indeed, Andy Martino of SNY later reported on Saturday that the letter contains no actual allegations of signatures. steal.
That still didn't prevent some high-profile members of the Astros from driving a victory lap over the supposedly incoming headlines.

No Yankees references required. We received the message loud and clear, although it is difficult to expect confirmatory information from the letter.
It's also worth noting that Alex Bregman quickly deleted a tweet that seemed to point to the Yankees at the time of Martino's report.
For MLB, it may be better if these teams don't meet during a potential 2020 season. If it does, it will almost certainly come in a playoff series.
Regarding this September 2017 press release, Manfred announced that the Yankees were fined for the 2015-2016 season for illegally using a dugout phone. In the same publication, the Red Sox were fined for illegally using an Apple Watch to steal and decipher a Yankees catcher's shields.
It is a story that has passed much faster than the Astros scandal. In fact, the details of stealing signs and hitting trash cans will almost certainly hover over Houston as long as the current core player remains intact.
Again, the Astros won't win any points for their reaction. Not with the general consensus that Player Manager A.J. Hinch, former coach Alex Cora and general manager Jeff Luhnow accept the fall, while taking little responsibility for their own roles in the program. If there was ever a time to look after their own affairs, it was probably that time.
