Former Astros pitcher Collin McHugh says he wished he did more to speak out against the the sign-stealing scandal that took place while he was a member of the team. “You've got to be willing to stick up for what you believe in and what you believe is right and what you believe is wrong. And I think a lot of the guys on that team, including myself, are looking back now and wishing we had been as brave in the moment as we thought we were beforehand.” In January, MLB released a report detailing how Houston electronically stole the signs of their opponents and would alert oncoming batters with trash can banging. McHugh said he understands why players around the MLB are frustrated with the Astros and expresses sympathy for the pitchers that faced the Astros lineup.
