There's no denying the scandal surrounding the Houston Astros and stealing signs has completely taken over the sports world. With managers losing their jobs over this, you better believe countless players out there are furious with what's been revealed. 

This includes legendary Yankees hurler CC Sabathia, who didn't mince words when discussing the topic.

Sabathia is with the likes of Cody Bellinger, Yu Darvish and Trevor Bauer in speaking out about the Astros' cheating. Straight up, the big lefty is not happy right now.

"When I first heard it, I was upset... but as more information came out I'm like, we played a seven-game series in 2017, ALCS, and we lost really on kind of like one pitch," Sabathia said during an appearance on Showtimes' Inside the NFL.

He went on to talk about his frustration with the Astros, plus the Boston Red Sox in 2018, who were caught practicing similar behavior as the Astros.

"It's getting frustrating, man, to sit here and know that late in my career I could've had a title, maybe '17 or maybe '18, but we got cheated out of a team kind of doing something that's not within the rules of the game."

It's safe to say thousands of Yankee fans are equally upset with both the Astros and Red Sox right now. Sabathia isn't alone with his feelings here, that's for sure.
