Osuna?


Recommended Posts

Looks like the Jays are trying to trade Osuna due to his suspension and case. Should we make an move to acquire Osuna if the price is right 

positives

23 years olf

control

has service time

Negatives

Suspension 

Case going on

Price?

So should we trade for Osuno?

I can't imagine any team taking him on at this point with so much baggage pending.  Although it could be a repeat of the Chapman situation where the yankees got him for a song and turned him into Gleyber Torres and others.  

I doubt Arte would be on board with the negatives this could bring though.

Sure. Let's bring in him and Heimlich. Maybe OJ Simpson can be a real sport athlete?

As long as the Astros can overcome the bad PR then it is a good pickup. I am not sure I would want that baggage on my team. 

You see the Astros presser???   Luhnow was asked about the domestic abuse issues hanging over Osuna's head...   Dude actually looked dead at the person asking the question and said "the Astros zero tolerance policy only applies to players currently on the Astros".   Lol...  He followed it up with the usual pap about believing in second chances, but by then I was laughing too hard to follow along.

Honestly -- save for the addition of the ZERO-tolerance comment, the Astros comments are easy enough to swallow.   They were going to catch shit regardless but, why even  bring attention to having a Zero tolerance policy if you're going to make it clear the team will weasel out of it...

Reporters are clearly being unreasonable in their interpretation of zero tolerance domestic abuse policy. I think it's pretty obvious that the policy was meant to only apply to acts of domestic violence that occur at the Astros facility during organized team activities. I don't know how the media could have misunderstood this so badly.
