Carlos Beltrán addresses Astros sign-stealing scandal for the first time: ‘We got it wrong’

Former Astros outfielder Carlos Beltrán has spoken publicly for the first time about his role in Houston’s infamous sign-stealing scandal, admitting the team was wrong to execute on its plan.

Beltrán, now an analyst for the YES Network, spoke as a guest on CenterStage with Michael Kay and explained how no one in the organization stepped in to stop the illegal activity.

“A lot of people still ask me why you didn’t arrest him,” Beltrán said, according to a YES Network program transcript seen by Athleticism. “And my answer is that I didn’t stop him the way no one stopped him. It works for us. Why are you going to quit something that works for you? So if the organization had told us anything, we would have definitely arrested him.
