Jose Altuve won the MVP due to the Astros sign-stealing scheme: Cody Bellinger

Cody Bellinger also hit out at 2017 MVP Jose Altuve. He questioned Jose Altuve’s game-winning home run in the 2019 ALCS. Altuve celebrated strangely, insisting his teammates not to pull off his shirt, which they did and the player had to go to the dressing room. While Jose Altuve denies his involvement in the Astros sign-stealing scandal, it is fair to say that fans don’t see eye-to-eye with his statement considering the backlash on Twitter. He added that Jose Altuve won the MVP due to the sign-stealing scandal and it was ‘stolen’ from Aaron Judge in 2017.
