My opinion on Osuna would greatly change if he came out admitted his mistakes, talked about turning over a new leaf, asked for forgiveness, etc.and then showed he was different. He became a guest speaker at an event like that.

I'm all about forgiveness, but I feel like Osuna was able to work the system and got a very minimal punishment for a terrible act.


1) How much is he allowed to say publicly at this point? I honestly don't know. Our nature as fans would like him to come forward and address it, but I'm also not sure the terms of his Peace Bond allow him to say much. It would sort of look bad on the Crown/Canadian courts if after he received his bond, he came out and was like "yea, I did it. It's all true. Please forgive me." It's also possible he's doing alot more behind closed doors for the cause of violence against women than we know.

2) Since I don't have access to much information on the matter, I defer my opinion to Hinch and our players. While he may not be able to say much publicly, clearly he's addressed the issue and expressed his contrite privately in the locker room. I'm willing to trust Hinch, Altuve and JV to welcome him onto the team or cast him as an outsider pending the information they gather. It doesn't sound like he's been cast as an outsider...

Quote:


When he did, Osuna addressed the team in English after Hinch introduced him. The manager told Osuna he was "really lucky" to be an Astro, given the cohesiveness of the club and how it would "hold him accountable to the levels of everything that encompasses" it.

"I thought it was incredible," Hinch said of Osuna's ensuing address. "I thought it was the perfect tone, perfect temperament. "But his actions post-meeting over the last six, eight, 10 months have proven the words that he said in (Los Angeles) were exactly who he is and how he's going to be."

...

Last week, reliever Chris Devenski lost a foosball bet with his bullpen mate. To atone for it, Devenski donned Osuna's game jersey during pregame warmups in Arlington.

"We do everything together as a team. We have one of the closest knit groups imaginable. In my 20 years in the league, this is one of the closest groups of guys I've been around," Hinch said. "It doesn't surprise me that they embraced him and pushed him to be a good person, a good player and a good teammate."




It seems like he can't or won't speak public ally because he's guilty of it and got away.

Rangers broadcast said Bregman is only hitting about .100 the 2nd time he comes to bat in games, but over .400 the 3rd time (against the same pitcher).

That's crazy

We can wish for Alvarez all day but we all know it'll be Myles Straw or Derek Fisher and they'll come up and go 0-whatever while Yordon continues to go in dry on the PCL.

Sadly you are probably correct. Or some random bullpen arm that doesn't produce
