Snell, Glasnow Feel Astros Players Needed To Be Punished

ST. PETERSBURG (WDAE) -- The Tampa Bay Rays' 2019 season ended to the Houston Astros, but a pair of pitchers had plenty to say about the 2017 Astros team that stole signs on its way to the franchise's first World Series title.

Both left-hander Blake Snell and right-hander Tyler Glasnow are of the belief that the league's penalties, which cost Astros manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow their respective jobs, may not have been enough.

"I think the punishment was relatively lax, as far as what went toward the players," Glasnow said after an informal workout at Tropicana Field Friday. "But MLB made its decision, and it's over with now."

For Snell, it comes down to consistency in punishments for players.

"If you think about it, all the stuff that's happened with PED's, [players] get punished," the 2018 Cy Young Award winner said. "I feel like cheating's worse. Because [with] steroids, yeah you got all big and buff, but you still had to hit the ball. You didn't know what was coming. When you know what's coming, it don't matter. It really doesn't."
