"...Everyone hears that we cheated, and they hear that there was the whole trash can deal going on, but no one sees the work that we were putting in every day to prepare ourselves and give ourselves an advantage."


OK then, that clears it all up, nothing to see here.

"You have no idea how hard we had to work to cheat successfully!"

I don't think the headline writer knows what "open up" means.

I think he knows what clickbait means.

In which 'opening up' is redefined as 'stonewalling'.

"He's a grown man, and he can do whatever he wants to do. It's a free country," Correa told the Chronicle. "Knowing [Mike] Fiers, it was surprising, because we were a team. We were a team. We were all together, and we had a bond, and we won a World Series championship. But this is America, the land of the free. You can say what you want to say."
"Everyone is going to have thoughts on stuff regardless," Musgrove told reporters. "Everyone always accuses people of something. That stuff goes around the league all the time. Everyone is trying to get an advantage somewhere.

On advice of my attorneys, Carlos Correa and Joe Musgrove, I believe I can now legally say and accuse that the Astros eat puppies between innings to get the advantages of performance-enhancing puppy juices.

What do you think's in the trash can?

When I was a kid, players didn't have to tenderize puppies before they ate them. Of course, in my day, ballplayers were for ####.
