Altuve added a similar response: "I want to say that the whole Astros organization and the team feels bad about what happened in 2017".
The Houston Astros finally made their players available to talk publicly about their sign-stealing scandal on Thursday before a spring training workout in West Palm Beach, Fla., and the public reaction to the news conference and clubhouse comments was universal trashing.
Owner Jim Crane: "Our opinion is this didn't impact the game".
"Whatever we were doing, we had the chance to stop it as a team".
"Is that the only reason they won the World Series?"
The "fake Twitter account", now shut off, came from a person asserting to be the niece of previous Astro Carlos Beltran- among the main numbers in the group's 2017 sign-stealing system.
The team must forfeit its regular first- and second-round selections in the 2020 and 2021 drafts and pay a $5 million fine. "We especially feel remorse for the impact on the fans and the game of baseball, and our team is determined to move forward, to play with intensity and to bring back a championship to Houston in 2020". He said sign-stealing was "definitely an advantage" and gave the Astros an edge. But we know they were cheated out of a real shot at a championship. Looking back, I can't go back, I can't reverse my decision.

Los Angeles Angels pitcher Andrew Heaney delivered an epic rant this week which shows just how bad things are going to be for the Astros and their players this season.
A day earlier, the Astros gathered at their facility, barring media from the grounds, and it was apparent that they mostly agreed on a unified message.
"I do think they're lying about the buzzers", Brown said. "It's not where we want to be coming into the season but we have to take responsibility for our actions".
DUSTY BAKER: I just want to ask for the baseball world, you know, to forgive them for the mistakes that they've made. "Rip off the scab and you try to re-heal, I guess".
Considering the occasions of the previous couple of weeks, you would certainly be within your legal rights to have a hard time thinking what the Astros are stating.
That information was then relayed to Astros hitters, giving them a good idea of what kind of pitch was coming.
"So when he's running from third base to home plate, I'm the guy up front".
Baker reached out to the Major League Baseball to "try to put a stop to the seemingly premeditated retaliation that I'm hearing about".
Mets teammate J.D. Davis said he felt "ashamed" to be part of the scandal.
