Ehhh… I get it, he's been with the organization a long time and is familiar with some of our key players... But to go from quality control coach to manager is a stretch... :unsure:

 

They had two obvious options, and they blew it with this hire

 

you blew it GIF

This Astros thing feels like it has the potential to get really out of control this season. They are going to get beamed all season. It didn't occur this many players in the league, outside the Dodgers, would be this irate at them.

 

I wouldn't vacate their title, because it seems likely that other teams have done this or something comparable, but with the domestic abuser defending, executives screaming at female reporters, the cheating... what an absolutely toxic organization.

^ lol. The Astros have gotten off scot free.

 

Why not the 81-game suspension and no playoff eligibility for all the players involved (wherever they're playing now), like players caught for PEDs get?

So, I read this ESPN article about how a shortened season would look like, once The Show finally gets on the road. I did some math in my head regarding when would the Postseason end if it were to be pushed back into mid-October...

 

Quote

 

Assuming normal Postseason scheduling is:

- Day off after the regular season ends (for a Potential Tiebreaker game)

- AL games begin on one date; the NL begins theirs the next day (or vice-versa)

- Single-elimination Wild Card round

- 2-2-1 Division Series, with travel day(s) built in

- 2-3-2 LCS, again with travel day(s) built in
- 2-3-2 WS, with travel day(s)

 

 

Here is what I came up with:

 

- If the regular season were to end on October 15, Game 7 of the WS could be played either on November 15 (if we started the WS on Saturday, 11/7) or on November 18 (if we started the WS on Tuesday, 11/10) - recently we've been starting the Fall Classic on a Tuesday but in the past, the Series has started on a Saturday.

 

- If the regular season were to end on October 31 November 1, Game 7 of the WS would be on December 2.

 

- Note: In either scenario, I haven't even factored in a potential off-day for Election Day, which would be November 10 - and that's assuming it doesn't get re-scheduled 😱

Not feeling like this season is going to happen...

 

Several pitchers opting for eventual TJS recently:

 

Chris Sale, Severino, Thor, Beede, Munoz, etc.
