Astros’ Jim Crane Responds to Yankees’ Cashman on Cheating: ‘You Were Doing It, Too’
Houston Astros owner Jim Crane believes people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman turned heads in March when he told Andy McCullough of The Athletic the “illegal and horrific” cheating scheme from the Astros was what prevented his team from winning a World Series.
Houston defeated the Yankees in the 2017 American League Championship Series.
“I found his comments to be extremely strange,” Crane said, per Bob Nightengale of USA Today. “There’s the letter, and you were doing it, too. You were there, dude. What are you talking about?”
As Nightengale explained, the letter he referenced was fromt MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred and revealed the Yankees also participated in a form of sign-stealing, even though it wasn’t as wide-ranging as Houston’s.
“If I was one of the teams, and I knew our team was doing it [cheating], I’d keep my mouth shut and just go about our business,” Crane added. “But listen, I can only control what’s going on here. I can’t control what the other guys do.”
