There may be those among you who think it uncharitable to take this moment, when their fans are low, and their players packing up, to ask that we remember Taubman, but this is precisely when we must resist forgetting, in the moments when we and they are vulnerable to all the other things on the to-do list. Before other, potentially flawed men arrive, and have to be properly sized up. These women were just trying to do their work, after the ALCS was decided and in the days since, and for the Astros to do theirs will require them to look their baseball full in the face, embracing the smarts and spin and data, but also the humanity and failing of those who wear their uniform.
It will mean creating an environment of real respect, for those who work for and around them, and building an organization that properly appreciates that to acquire an Osuna is to acquire all of him, perhaps inspiring them to resist acquiring another like him at all. That is less enamored with being clever and more concerned with being decent. That takes responsibility and sees itself as responsible for this project, not just yesterday or last Saturday, but tomorrow and next spring.
That understands its work.

What else is needed? Releasing Osuna? The only reason they actually apologized was because the public pressure was hurting their brand.
Yes, they should release Osuna. They never should have traded for him in the first place. This is in regards to they should just release Osuna. With that said, the Astros, Taubmann and Osuna could have handled the initial trade and subsequent interactions so so much better. He could just as easily pump gas. You are right. The way this article speaks, I am NOT in favor at all. NO to all of it. You know what?
The poster has dehumanized him, because of her agenda. You missed a great group of men celebrating on the field on Wednesday night, and for what? A grudge? Harm done? People say shitty things and hurt other people, all then time. Maybe, instead of imposing all these demands on the Astros org, people should get off their high horse, forgive, and move the hell on. Crazy, I know. It was the concierge at the front desk of the residence who called police, the source added.
Oh and he was charged; he pleaded out. That is not a word that I use, especially since it is a charged word now. I just dont think there is a limitless amount of punishment… decided by people who were not harmed by Osuna, nor were they there… that can be heaped upon him.
The way he and others who go through this are treated, makes me thankful of laws. Without them, there are some who would have him stripped of everything. It may be the case that he was a victim before he was a perpetrator. His violence may come from unbearable inner pain.
Maybe, maybe not. I could agree he deserves some scorn, but not that it justifies every move or position or action against him. Yes, all of what constitutes that scorn, and how far it extends, is up for debate, and can receive scorn itself. This is a take too mature for most internet audiences. Not who I want controlling the discourse. You are correct, he could pump gas. I see your point though. Well taken. Responsibility means facing up to and working to change the organizational culture that 1 allowed Taubman to feel like it was good and cool to act the way he did in that place and moment, and 2 resulted in the Astros responding to the initial reporting the way they did.
Did the Astros handle the situation correctly?
Absolutely not. Can I understand why they did what they did? They had a trusted employee. One according to the team who did not exhibit any tendencies to write off things like sexual assault or domestic violence. Thursday, November 21, About Advertising Submission Resources Contact.
