Joe Kelly didn't hold back when discussing his thoughts on how the Houston Astros handled Major League Baseball's investigation into their sign-stealing scheme, calling them "rats" and "snitches" in the Big Swing Podcast released Thursday.
"The people who took the fall for what happened is nonsense," Kelly said. "Yes, everyone is involved. But the way that [sign-stealing system] was run over there was not from coaching staff...They're not the head boss in charge of that thing. It's the players. So now the players get the immunity, and all they do is go snitch like a little b----, and they don't have to get fined, they don't have to lose games.
"When you take someone's livelihood...to save your own a--, that's what I don't like…Cheating? They cheated. Everyone knows they're cheaters. They know they're cheaters. It's over. That's been there, done that. But now they mess it up by ruining other people's lives, so they f---ed it up twice...When you taint someone's name to save your own name, this is one of the worst things that you could probably do...That really friggin' bugs me. I think I'll be irritated forever."
