Philly’s Fox 29 interviews trash can involved in Astros’ sign-stealing: “Nobody asks about my feelin

Jumping ahead to the meat of it:

But one side we haven’t heard from in all of this reporting and investigating is the trash cans that were utilized as a delivery system for the Astros’ sign-stealing. They played a key role in the scheme, getting whacked by players and staffers — and loud enough for batters at the plate to hear. How did these objects feel about their involvement in this scandal?

Fox 29’s Good Day Philadelphia morning program looked at this angle of the story, nabbing an exclusive interview with one of the trash cans reportedly involved in Houston’s sign-stealing relay system. Anchors Mike Jerrick and Karen Hepp brought the receptacle, nicknamed “T.C.,” into their studio to share a perspective we haven’t yet heard.

Asked how it felt to be involved in such a “trashy” scandal, the trashcan defended its innocence.

“I’m just sitting there and I was beat over and over and over,” said T.C. “Nobody cares about my feelings. It took me two years to get all the dents out. It’s the worst job in sports. Have you seen a baseball dugout? They never use me. There’s stuff all over the floor.”

Source: The Baltimore Orioles have signed the trash can to a one-year deal, with the expectation it will join the rotation.

BAL initially signed it to play first ("should be able to hold everything") but when they saw no one could hit it in the dugout they turned it towards the mound.
