Sen. Bernie Sanders says MLB Commissioner is 'hurting baseball'

Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow were suspended for one year and subsequently fired by the organization.

Turner was a member of the Dodgers team that lost the 2017 World Series to the Astros in seven games, making the scandal more personal and the comments from the Commissioner more grating. But that seven-game victory over the Dodgers is now tarnished in the eyes of many around the game.

"The way he handled the situation, he should be embarrassed of himself", Markakis said of Manfred.

The wave of anger against the Houston Astros over their cheating scandal shows no signs of receding as the new Major League Baseball season approaches.

"I lost some respect for some of the guys", Trout said.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Houston, asks that the team be ordered to compensate all Astros season-ticket holders for what the suit calls "inappropriate increases" in ticket prices from 2017-20.

I know the saying goes something like "not all heroes wear capes" but this is Florida, after all, so there's really no telling of whether or not this amped up Yankees fan was wearing a cape.

Several active Major League Baseball players, including Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Justin Turner, ripped Manfred on Sunday following his interview with ESPN.

"Now anyone who goes forward and cheats to win a World Series", Turner added (via Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times), "they can live with themselves knowing that, 'Oh, it's OK". At this point, the only thing devaluing that trophy is that it says "Commissioner' on it". It sucks, too, because guys' careers have been affected, a lot of people lost jobs. Which side are you on here? It's tough. Taking a trophy away, taking.
