The Houston Astros are in the news for all the wrong reasons heading into the World Series, and manager A.J. Hinch is the lone voice of reason within the organization.
Assistant general manager Brandon Taubman has been accused of taunting female reporters over the team’s decision to sign Roberto Osuna, who was suspended 75 games by MLB for violating its domestic violence policy.
Stephanie Apstein of Sports Illustrated broke this troubling story. She wrote that Taubman, while celebrating Houston’s win over the New York Yankees to reach the World Series, “turned to a group of three female reporters, including one wearing a purple domestic-violence awareness bracelet, and yelled, half a dozen times, ‘Thank God we got Osuna! I’m so f—— glad we got Osuna!’”
