If the Astros and baseball commissioner Rob Manfred thought Houston’s sign-stealing scandal would go away once the team was penalized, neither side can be happy that the story is being kept alive by fans, media, and MLB players.
On Monday’s WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, Pat Ryan and I look at how badly Manfred continues to handle the situation as outrage over the lack of punishment for Astros players gets noisier.
Also, when we talked about the Atlanta Braves extending the contracts of general manager Alex Anthopoulos and manager Brian Snitker, I glossed over Snitker. My take is that the Braves are happy with the job he’s done but don’t completely believe that Snitker is the guy to lead the team to a World Series. That’s why he only got a one-year extension. Snitker will just have to keep winning.
