Pete Rose asks MLB for reinstatement, cites Astros sign-stealing scandal

"I think everyone's going to have to draw their own conclusions", Hinch said in an excerpt on MLB Network. While Manfred suspended Astros manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow for one year after an investigation into sign stealing - they subsequently were fired - the players involved weren't suspended.

Hinch, who was sacked in mid-January after Major League Baseball suspended him for one year, broke his silence on the matter in an interview that will air Friday.

Speaking on NBC's "Today" show, Aaron said he was surprised to hear that an investigation led by Major League Baseball found that the Astros used the video feed from a center field camera to see and decode the opposing catcher's signs in 2017 and 2018.

Perhaps most striking about this first look, however, is how ridiculously long the Galaxy Z Flip looks when folded out completely. The outward surface of the device is quite reflective, switching between purple and pink shades depending on the lighting.

Hinch says he hopes that "over time it's proven" that the illegal sign stealing pitching tactics didn't dictate their tournament win, adding that the Texas team's talent stands alone.

Around the same time Rose was being investigated, some of the biggest (both literally and figuratively) players in the MLB had taken a liking to stuffing their bodies with a plethora of performance-enhancing drugs, a problem the league did everything in its power to downplay until it became the subject of a Congressional investigation in 2005.

Verducci began by asking Hinch to recount the events of January 13, the day the commissioner released his report detailing the findings of a three-month investigation of allegations that stemmed from a report in The Athletic built on on-the-record information from former Houston pitcher Mike Fiers. I think there is a responsibility when you're in a position to end it. We're going to have to live and move forward and be better in the sport, but unfortunately, no one can really answer that question. We've seen it so many times before.

Knicks could follow Warriors, Lakers examples by hiring an agent as president
It remains to be seen whether or not Rose will be able to turn the Knicks' fortunes around although fans are pretty optimistic. Knicks owner James Dolan released a statement Thursday afternoon, but did not announce any hiring.

"No I don't", Aaron said. "It was uncomfortable. I came out firm".

Baseball Legend Pete Rose discusses the Houston Astros' sign-stealing scandal and whether it's worse than gambling. "And the commissioner's office did as thorough an investigation as anyone could imagine was possible". Among the most popular alleged examples are a clip showing Robinson Chirinos picking up something that he dropped and then stuffing it into his back pocket during the World Series. "It's up to other people to determine whether I'm the right fit, but I love managing. In this one, I feel like I fell short".

Halifax prop Keegan Hirst, Britain's first openly gay rugby league player, said the decision is "disappointing and frustrating". Israel Folua could be at the centre of more legal wrangling upon his return to rugby league.
