Sports Illustrated-Astros Article
 
Thoughts?
 
One question I have, why did they sit on it for 36+hours?
 
Edit- Here is the link:

Here is an opinion article on the same subject. Not sure what the asst. GM was thinking. Best to keep him under wraps during the series.

Odd he said that after Osuna gave up the 2 runs.

I'm really not understanding why this is being made into such a big deal. Looks like a bunch of salty Yankees fans to me. Check out where the magazine is based.

The only thing I take with all the due seriousness from SI is their swimsuit issue... Oh and that 2014 Springer cover predicting a WS win in '17.
 
There is nothing to the Taubman/Osuna "story." It's locker room talk.

Saw reports that the reporter it was aimed at was Allison Footer, who was a very vocal critic of the trade.

Having no dog in this fight, I'd find it interesting to see everybody's thoughts if it were the Yankees assistant GM being accused of this versus Astros.... And spare the comment if you come back with 'no different.' 😂
 
Is it a story? Yes. Should one's ******* act/comments hijack the WS coverage? No. Having said that, Astros ownership and management could've handled the PR side of this much better.

From what I've got from this, the dude was reacting to someone's comment. Why would he be praising Osuna out of the blue? Osuna just blew a save neccesitaing us to bat in the ninth. Also other people who confirm the comments never said it was in the faces of the women, only near them. As for the purple bracelet, I never would have know what it was without this story and I'm not sure it adds anything besides shock factor. There are countless number of these bracelets out there, who knows what all of them are for? I don't dispute he said what he did, it was stupid. Just seems off about the way it was presented. Remember now, SportsIllustrated is now run by a new company. TheMaven. Their corporate goal litterally is clicks.

Sports Illustrated doesn't like Houston....I remember when the Rockets beat the Knicks in the mid-90s to win their first championship, Sports Illustrated was late coming out with their traditional NBA World Champion tribute edition...Then, when they finally released one it was only sold regionally, not nationwide....

@Yep : I hate the Yankees. I also hate homers that can't think objectively when it comes to their own team.
 
As far as Joe Buck, I personally don't mind the guy. Not as bad as Gus Johnson!!

The only #Karma tweets that may have a point are:
 
1. First Intentional Walk of the season and the only team not to do it until now.
 
2. First time Verlander ever had a different person catching for him in a game this season.
 
In counterpoint, I also understand you sometimes have to stick your neck out to win. Sometimes it works and you win, sometimes it gets cut off and you end up on the BBQ pit!

@trojantexan : Do you know why Bergman flashes a 4 finger sign at the cameras after he hits a homerun? If you go with any of the suggestions tossed up by the national broadcasters tonight, you should probably apply for their jobs - you'll get it.
 
Overpaid folks who don't bother to do research & actually find out the truth and instead postulate stupidly.
