    Astros Fire Jeff Luhnow, A.J. Hinch

    By Jeff Todd | January 13, 2020 at 2:06pm CDT

    In the wake of severe MLB discipline arising out of the Houston sign-stealing scandal, Astros owner Jim Crane announced that he has fired both GM Jeff Luhnow and manager A.J. Hinch.

    Re: Luhnow and Hinch suspended for a year

    Given the Astros success, the picks aren't that big of a deal. Financially & pick-wise, they basically got punished the equivalent of 2-3 wins, which is sort of meh. I'm ambivalent about the suspensions. They feel necessary, but somewhat insufficient considering that other integrity-of-the-game issues lead to lifetime bans.

    I'm not for attempting to change the past through vacating titles or anything. And I imagine it's difficult to punish specific players for taking part, especially those no longer with the Astros.

    Ultimately, I guess I would have liked to have seen longer suspensions and or much bigger fines.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I have a feeling "leaks" are going to really start pointing fingers at some of the players.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s actually the one to get a lifetime ban, if he actually was the mastermind as it’s come out today.

    Also, people are connecting the dots that Beltran brought this system to the Astros from a former team that also had it - possibly the Rangers?

    Over/under number of days before Hinch is mentioned on here as a replacement for David Bell?

    0.5?

    I think a post-season playoff ban of some length has teeth. The MLB bowl game ban.
