In sports news, Major League Baseball is investigating an outburst by Houston Astros assistant general manager Brandon Taubman to three female journalists Saturday night as the Astros celebrated their win against the Yankees in Game 6 of the American League Championship Series. Taubman yelled at Sports Illustrated reporter Stephanie Apstein, who was wearing a purple domestic-violence awareness bracelet, and other female reporters, “Thank God we got Osuna! I’m so f——— glad we got Osuna!” The Astros signed relief pitcher Roberto Osuna from the Toronto Blue Jays in 2018 only weeks after the league handed him a 75-game suspension for violating its domestic violence policy. Osuna is being accused of assaulting the mother of his child. Major League Baseball has launched an investigation into whether the three female journalists were subject to a hostile work environment.
