Talk of baseball's sign-stealing scandal doesn't seem like it's going away anytime soon.
Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Tyler Glasnow is the latest to chime in on the fallout from the Houston Astros' scheme to electronically steal signs, which dates back to the 2017 season. While he says he accepts the league's disciplinary decisions regarding the scandal, he feels the players involved are getting off light.
"It's just kind of insane. I think the punishment was relatively lax, I think, as far as what went to the players, but MLB made their decision and it's over with now."
The league announced that no players would be suspended or punished for their roles in the behavior once its investigation was concluded.
Asked whether he agrees with his peers about whether or not the sign-stealing scandal is worse than steroids, Glasnow elected not to offer a comparison.
"They're both bad. It doesn't really matter what's worse or what's not. They're both cheating."
Glasnow's Rays pushed the Astros to the brink during the 2019 ALDS but eventually lost in the fifth and deciding game.
