Evan Gattis takes shot at Mike Fiers for outing Astros as cheaters

Mike Fiers beard

Most Houston Astros players have not gone after Mike Fiers for his role as the whistleblower about their sign stealing system in 2017, but one former member of the team isn’t being quite as kind.

Former Astro Evan Gattis, who was a member of the 2017 team, tweeted an image of a glass with Fiers’ face on it above the phrase “snitches get stitches.”

Gattis later said in a follow-up tweet that he had “zero bad feelings” towards Fiers and that he thought the glass was funny.

Most would say Fiers did the right thing. The public had the right to know, and given how MLB was dismissive of private complaints, the former Astros pitcher going public was the only way it was going to happen. Gattis looks foolish and vindictive here.

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:
