The Astros should be suspended for the rest of the season.

    Hear me out. We've seen where the Astros are getting picked on, and they totally deserve it. You'd think they wouldn't want to rock the MLB boat further, but instead of the pecking order making them want to keep their heads down and out of the line of fire, they're doing quite the opposite. Instead of it humbling them, it's given them a chip on their shoulders, and they act as though getting picked on isn't warranted.

    They weren't getting picked on in this game, and yet here's another dust up for the Astros:

    So the Astros manager Dusty Baker gets ejected from the game for arguing a strike call. Fast forward through some more bad pitching by the Astros, Ramon Laureano of the A's gets peened twice, and the Astros hitting coach Alex Clinton goes out of his way to pick a fight with Laureano as he's walking to 1st base. Apparently Clinton said something insulting about Laureano's mother.

    At any rate, this team doesn't seem grateful to being allowed to play. Perhaps not having a live audience has made them feel like they can get away with more. Either way, they're acting like punks. They should be suspended for the rest of the season, or at least until they can conduct themselves professionally - especially the coaching staff.

    Would love to see that. But nah, none of their actions this particular shortened season earn them a full season suspension. So really you would just be re-litigating their cheating scandal, which is already a closed case. And on top of that, many of the staff and players are new and weren't even involved in the years they caught them cheating. So it really wouldn't be fair no matter which way you look at it.

    You're right. But it's definitely not fun to be an Astro or an Astros fan.
