Cody Bellinger not buying Jose Altuve’s electronic buzzer excuse

Jose Altuve buzzer

Cody Bellinger is among the most dissatisfied players in MLB over the Houston Astros’ cheating and the team’s lack of remorse and penalties from MLB.

Bellinger took a shot at both the Astros and Red Sox in January over the allegations. He also shared his concerns over the allegations about some of the Astros’ top players wearing electronic buzzers to receive stolen signals.

On Friday, Bellinger spoke from the Dodgers’ spring training facility in Arizona. He shared his doubts about Jose Altuve’s behavior and explanation after hitting a walk-off home run against Aroldis Chapman to send the Astros to the World Series last season.

Bellinger’s questions about the matter represent exactly why so many fans were concerned and outraged. Altuve’s behavior did not make much sense. And then when you see former Astros manager A.J. Hinch’s initial comments about the buzzers, it’s hard not to feel like the rumors were all true.

Bellinger, the reigning NL MVP, had much more to say about the Astros, Rob Manfred, and Jim Crane.
