Add Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout to the growing list of players calling out MLB commissioner Rob Manfred for how he handled the Houston Astros sign stealing investigation.

When asked about it during Spring Training on Monday, the three-time AL MVP did not mince words regarding his feelings towards the situation.

“It’s sad for baseball. It’s tough. They cheated. I don’t agree with the punishments, the players not getting anything. It was a player-driven thing. It sucks, too, because guys’ careers have been affected. A lot of people lost jobs. It was tough.” said Trout.

“Me going up to the plate knowing what was coming? It would be fun up there. A lot of guys lost respect for some of the guys. You don’t know what helped them or what not…But if you know what’s coming, it’s going to definitely help them. I don’t know if you take the trophy away or take the rings away, but they should definitely do something.”
