Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw is yet another person who has taken issue with Jim Crane's weak apology. Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Dodgers were already angered after being cheated by the Houston Astros in the 2017 World Series. After hearing Astros owner Jim Crane’s pathetic apology , Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw didn’t hesitate to blast Crane.

Kershaw gave some of the Astros players credit for delivering a sincere apology to start spring training. However, Kershaw found Crane’s claim that the cheating didn’t impact the game and he shouldn’t be held accountable for it, to be absurd, via Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times:

It’s hard to blame Kershaw for calling Crane’s comments ignorant. The Astros owner started his press conference saying the team's cheating methods didn’t impact the game, then claimed he never said it when a reporter challenged him.

Crane’s complete tone-deafness to the matter and his willful ignorance of how cheating impacted players’ careers and the postseason, highlights the problems that remain in Houston. Players around the league aren’t going to forgive this team for its actions anytime soon, and the weak apologies only made things worse.
