First Cody Bellinger... now Mike Trout. Gotta love unity in baseball when character is questioned.

ESPN writes:

"'I noticed the banging on the bat,' Trout said Monday morning during his first media session of the 2020 season. 'It just feels like they weren't missing pitches.'...

'It's sad for baseball,' Trout said. 'It's tough. They cheated. I don't agree with the punishments, the players not getting anything. It was a player-driven thing. It sucks, too, because guys' careers have been affected, a lot of people lost jobs. It was tough. Me going up to the plate knowing what was coming -- it would be pretty fun up there.'"

'I lost some respect for some guys,' Trout said."

Mike went Jersey on their asses and I love that. But here's the thing... until guys like Cody and Trout go to the Player's Union and say "Time to give Major League Baseball a call and change the punishment to something more harsh for the Astros," nothing will happen. The Player's Union has found a way to strike a deal with MLB to not punish the Astros. They are really the ones holding the cards here.  We need to light a fire under their asses, plain and simple.

We cannot let this go away. It's too big.
