MLB is investigating following inappropriate comments by the Astros Assistant GM Brandon Taubman after they clinched the ALCS on Saturday. How does someone say they're so supportive of an abuser? I don't understand how it is people will say they were misunderstood when it sounds pretty clear, otherwise they're sending mixed messages. It's already a sensitive subject.

OMG, this one is blowing up all over the place. I'll have to come back to the subject as I'm on limited time now.

You bet it is. The Astros statement seemed so generic and they have really turned a lot of fans off.

And just like that, the Astros have sent him packing. Even during the World Series.

Why Yankees broadcaster Suzyn Waldman is boycotting the World Series
