CC Sabathia has great reaction to Jose Altuve’s World Series guarantee

CC Sabathia

CC Sabathia isn’t doing much to hide his disgust toward the Houston Astros or the team’s response to the cheating scandal.

At the team’s fan event on Saturday, many Astros players made their first public comments on the matter since the team was disciplined for electronic sign stealing. Most would not comment on the allegations and refused to offer any apology.

Jose Altuve, however, said the Astros were undeterred and essentially promised another World Series appearance in 2020.

Newly-retired Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia did not seem convinced. He posted an image of Altuve walking to home plate through a metal detector, with an even more savage caption.

Few players have been more vocally critical than the Astros than Sabathia. He was part of the Yankees teams that lost to both Houston and Boston in 2017 and 2018, respectively. It’s easy to understand why he’s bitter.

Sabathia makes it clear that he thinks a good part of Houston’s success is attributed to sign stealing. Houston’s success — or how much of it the team has — will be a huge storyline worth watching in 2020.

The Houston Astros are confirmed cheaters and deserve an asterisk. Send that message by wearing our Houston Asterisks T-shirt! You can buy it here:
