MLB: World Series-Workouts Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports

Last week, Major League Baseball concluded their investigation into the Houston Astros’ illegal use of technology to steal signs during the 2017 season. Both A.J. Hinch and Jeff Luhnow received one-year suspensions, and then were subsequently fired. The organization lost their first and second-round draft picks in 2020 and 2021, plus they got stuck with a $5 million fine. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:

Did MLB do enough to deal with the Astros?

The Yankees had their postseason runs cut short thanks to the Astros, both in 2017 and in 2019. Yankees fans naturally have a lot to say on the matter. So here’s your opportunity to sound off. Was the punishment right? Or did it not go far enough to deter the team? Should the players have been given immunity? Let us know what you think in the FanPost section.

How will we select which FanPosts to promote to the front page? Some of it will be subjective. If you follow our tips, you should find yourself on the right track. We will also be looking for FanPosts with comments and recommendations. Depending on the number of responses we get, receiving some recs on your post could separate your FanPost from the crowd. Additionally, if your post has a number of comments then it may have sparked some worthwhile discussions. These are just a few things we’ll be looking for when we decide which post(s) to promote on the front page. We are always on the lookout for new talent, and the FanPost section can be a great way to get our attention.
