The Astros apologized during a press conference yesterday about the 2017 sign-stealing scandal, but the Nationals weren't convinced the cheating didn't go on into last season.

Nationals catcher Kurt Suzuki told Washington Post's Thomas Boswell that he thinks there was "no question" the Astros continued their cheating into the 2019 World Series, despite claims made by the team the sign-stealing operation ceased after 2017.

"We could hear it from their dugout. We heard their whistling. What are you going to do?" Suzuki told Boswell.

When Boswell said the Astros insisted there was no cheating going on during the World Series, Suzuki said, "They just got better at it."

Suzuki even told Boswell of an instance where the Astros were on Max Scherzer's pitches during the World Series. 

On the first day of Spring Training Thursday, Scherzer agreed the Astros crossed a line, and called for the league and MLBPA to ensure this from ever happening again.

Suzuki was not the only National to speak out following the press conference. Reliever Sean Doolittle discussed other ramifications of the Astros cheating, such as pitchers losing their jobs over it.
