Judgment Day

The official punishment from MLB came to Minute Maid Park today. It is not a good day in Astros history. Is it the worst day in Astros history? I don't know about that - there have been a lot of them, some of them even as part of this saga. Anyway, let's discuss what we know so far:

The Punishment
Let's first start with what did not happen:

-The Astros were not stripped of the 2017 World Series Championship.
-No actual current Astros players were suspended.

Commissioner Rob Manfred issued the following punishments on the Houston Astros after interviewing 68 people, 23 current and former Astros, 76,000 emails, who knows how many texts and Slack conversations

-$5 million fine.
