Houston Astros owner Jim Crane believes his team's illegal sign-stealing scheme in 2017 didn't affect results on the field.
Crane fielded a number of questions about the scandal on Thursday while meeting with reporters at the team's spring training complex. Among those, he was asked what he would say to the New York Yankees, who were eliminated by the Astros in the 2017 American League Championship Series.
"The Yankees have had a few comments out there. Our opinion is this didn't impact the game," Crane said. "We had a good team. We won the World Series and we'll leave it at that."
