Do We Really Want To Know More About The Astros Cheating Scandal?

Do we really want to know more about the Houston Astros cheating scandal it might just piss us off more as fans? MLB did an investigation, but we really do not know-how through the investigation really was done. I will be honest I do not totally trust them to do a good investigation into anything. The reality is if they know more and it's going to hurt the product how do we know it will be included in the report at all.

From buzzers to trash can lids are just some of the props we have heard the Astros used to get an advantage on the competition. The real question, in my opinion, is what else did they do and how long has this been going on. Could this have been going on a long while and no one knew until Mike Fliers open the can of worms. Now other players have come forward with their stories of cheating they witnessed. This tells me this is widespread and just not an isolated incident.

Finding out more will not make fans any happier with the situation. You cannot take titles from them even though they cheated as the other team didn't win it after all. You can never know if the other team would have won if the Astros didn't cheat. Putting an asterisk besides the title makes more sense in my opinion. Hopefully, this will wake up MLB and they will be taking cheating more seriously.

Why The Browns Need To Act Quickly After The Season Is Over

The Cleveland Browns are hoping to end the season on a good note as Sunday they will travel to Cincinnati to take on in-state rival the Bengals. A big win could help Freddie Kitchens keep his job, but a loss will make it so much easier for the Browns to fire him. No matter what happens Cleveland needs to make wholesale changes on this coaching staff. Firing Kitchens and most of his staff would be the best course of action.  Will Cleveland do it is another question indeed.

Kitchens has shown he is not ready to be a head coach in the NFL just yet. There have been times you just have to say what in the hell was he thinking. Baker Mayfield has struggled this year and it's not all his fault. Part of it is coaching, but part is on Mayfield as well. Cleveland as a team has been undisciplined and a shell of what we saw last season. Why is that?

Last seen they had Greg Williams as coach a no-nonsense coach that had rules and put up with nothing. In my opinion, if they do fire Freddie Kitchens they need a coach that will be demanding like Williams was to players. There is too much talent on the Browns not to be in the playoffs. Coaching was 80 percent of the problem this season. Getting the right coaches in here should make the difference between an average team and a playoff team.

Why Milwaukee Needs To Pull Trigger On Josh Hader Deal

Milwaukee has been listening to offers for Josh Hader from various teams, but mostly the Yankees. Many people want the Brewers to keep Hader and keep him in the closer role for Milwaukee. Now I am not one of those people. I do like what Josh brings to the table, but for me, it's about what you do when it really counts.

Hader for me has blown some games that meant a lot to the Brewers which is something they cannot afford going forward. When you are in such a small market and don't have the cap space to spend every game is important. In 2019 he had 7 blown saves which aren't a lot, but his ERA in the one playoff game was 18.00. That is not acceptable. When the Brewers really needed him to come through and save the game he could not do it. Hence the Brewers were eliminated from the playoffs.

Considering that the Brewers really do not like to spend money trading Hader makes the most sense. Getting younger is key for the Brewers which will help them over the long haul. With Braun getting older and Cain as well Milwaukee needs to make plans for the future.

An ideal situation would be to keep Hader, but if you can get a lot for him you must move him. This way you can help the team over the long term and still be competitive.

Why The Buccaneers May Want To Keep Working With Jameis Winston In Off-Season

After sitting a few hours thinking about the Buccaneers and their quarterback Jameis Winston I have come to these conclusions about him as the future of the Buccaneers. Now I understand that many Buccaneer fans would love to see the Bucs cut Winston at the end of the season, and you really can't blame the Bucs if that is the direction they move in.

I mean it's tough to live with the turnovers and how it is hurting the team, but sometimes biting the bullet is best and this is a time when I would consider that. Finding a franchise quarterback is tough, but if you got a guy who you can mold into what you want keeping him is the best train of thought.

In his career, Winston has thrown 119 touchdowns and 86 interceptions which are not stellar numbers, to say the least. If the Buccaneers can somehow able to cut down his interceptions they will have a very good quarterback. Winston is a great teammate and it seems the players relate well to him. Even with all the interceptions he still is able to get his team in position to win despite his play. Giving up on Winston right now sets the Buccaneers back a number of years. That is something I don't think they want to do right now.

Freddie Kitchens Always Spinning Things To Make Him Look Better

Freddie Kitchens had his Monday Press Conference and I gotta give Freddie some credit on trying to spin the latest loss as not that bad. Too many people are dwelling on the negatives and not the positives this season. It's true the Browns could have two 1,000 yard receivers and they do have the NFL's leading rusher in Nick Chubb. See Freddie was right there are some positives, but for Kitchens, the negatives far outweigh the positives by a great distance.

The Cleveland Browns will be the only NFL football in the decade without a winning season. That means for the last 10 years Browns fans had to suffer through some horrible teams. Freddie Kitchens was brought in as the guy to run this team, but after watching them in Arizona I'm still wondering how he is still coaching this team. Cleveland was horrible in every phase of the game in Arizona. Think about this the Cardinals had the worse ranked defense in the NFL. You would think that the Browns would light up the scoreboard, but it was the Cardinals that did.
Cleveland will probably keep Freddie Kitchens another season and we could be in store for more horrible play calling and football from the Cleveland Browns. The sad part is they are one of the most talented teams in the NFL, but unless they figure it out it's just wasted talent. Hopefully, Cleveland will part ways with Freddie Kitchens and bring in a real coach that has experience.
