Houston Astros and cheating, match made it heaven. A little over a year after the news broke that MLB was launching an investigation into Houston’s use of the videos, they returned and made headlines again.
To be honest, Angels and many other players also make titles. A former manager of the club in Anaheim pointed to several pitchers for which he helped develop a substance to use while climbing for a better grip. Former Astro Gerrit Cole and current Houston pitcher Justin Verlander were named in the report by former Angels employee Brian Harkins.
In a report published by the LA Times, Harkins reveals a text message for 2019 from Gerrit Cole, now with the Yankees. In the message, Cole asked Harkins for help in developing a new substance for use that will not be changed by the cold weather. Harkins was fired from MLB after an investigation revealed he had been helping players cheat since the time of Troy Percival.

According to the article, Harkins was interviewed by MLB on the charges in March. Nevertheless, there was no public address to the situation, regardless of what Harkins claimed. However, the allegations would make sense given what players like Trevor Bauer have said about Astros in the past.
The statement would also make sense for the career arches for both Cole and Verlander. Both experienced quite drastic improvements in spinning speed, as well as overall success when they came to Astros from other teams. For now, it remains a bold statement that MLB will have to gain control.
