This Week in Photography: Re-discovering Marcel Sternberger

  “The very basis for the existence of human society has become corroded with brutality, doubt, cynicism and distortion of truth- and the end is not yet in sight.” -Albert Einstein   I’m the last guy you’d expect to defend Donald Trump, right? Of all the people you know, (if this counts as knowing me,) you’d never predict that I’d go the mat for old DJT, would you? Except it happened last week, and I was as shocked as you are. The conversation wasn’t even about politics, but a like-minded, simil...

Spring Training Report: MLB Enters Spring Training Under A Dark Cloud

(CBS DFW/CBS Local) — Every team across the Grapefruit and Cactus Leagues has now reported to spring training. While optimism abounds, as it does in the days before before the games count, MLB finds itself under a dark cloud. More could be lurking on the horizon. The offseason revealed that the Houston Astros systematically stole signs during their 2017 run. Some punishments were meted out, though current players weren’t affected, and the team retained its 2017 World Series title. Pending in the...

Yankees' Torres thinks Astros cheated 'for sure' in 2019

Yankees shortstop Gleyber Torres feels the Houston Astros cheated ''for sure'' during the 2019 season. Major League Baseball found that the Astros used electronics to illegally steal catcher's signs in 2017 and part of 2018 but not 2019.

Whicker: Time to put the Astros controversy in the trash can

Cody Bellinger had barely jumped off his high horse when Carlos Correa hit the “reply” button and sent it 400 feet. What a shame it will be when the players replace the excitement of the Astrogate scandal with the droning nothingness of regular-season baseball. On Friday, Bellinger said the 2017 Houston Astros had cheated to win the World Series and that Jose Altuve had “stolen” the American League MVP award, although the award is decided by the Baseball Writers Association of America, which gav...

Alexander: With Astros, responsibility should start at the top

The most jarring words from Thursday’s dog-and-pony show in West Palm Beach, Fla., when the Houston Astros met the media and did their sorry/kind of sorry act, came from the team’s owner and chairman, Jim Crane. “No, I don’t think I should be held accountable,” he said. Think about that. He is the controlling owner of a franchise that now has become the national symbol for cheating. He oversaw and enabled an organizational culture that fostered a win-at-all-costs ethos, a technology-over-people ...
