Astros cheating: Carlos Beltrán played Godfather role in scheme

After being named in Major League Baseball’s report on the Astros’ sign-stealing scandal, new details have emerged on Carlos Beltrán’s role in the scheme.

In a new report from The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal and Evan Drellich, some members of the Astros “felt powerless” to stop Beltrán. Clubhouse dynamics came into play, and Beltrán, a 20-year veteran, reportedly didn’t take too well to players approaching him about the operation. Players described him to The Athletic as “El Jefe, the Godfather, the king, the alpha male in the building.”
