I like to believe a lot of them are simply pointing out the hypocrisy.

The cheating by technology has been going on for a long time apparently. But hey, let's smash the Astros for being the "one".

Not strange but expected. The Sox and Yanks do it and it barely gets a mention back when it happened because they are part of baseball royalty. Im still saying the Sox's punishment for "cheating" in 2018 will not be as severe as what was given to the Astros. Particularly the lose of draft picks. That is what is going to keep the Astros from fielding a upper echelon team in about 4 years. Possible complete tear down and rebuild again in about 5 years if not sooner. Trade away your best assets like Altuve and Bregman for lots of prospects, several 100 yr lose seasons and do it all over again.

1) owner picking a manager.
2) forcing team to apologize for something that as part of the investigative process the were granted immunity from.
3) injecting own kids into exec roles they have no business or experience being in.
4) bet you a dollar hes going to be involved in trades and acquisitions from this point out. Both of which he hasnt got a clue about.

1.) Crane hired Lunhow and Hinch originally.
2.) I think this is smart... not so much the blanket apology but getting everyone on board with how they are going to talk about this as the year progresses is not a bad deal.
3.) baseball wants every team to have succession built into their organization. This was the reasoning for having Cranes son more involved.
4.) crane manufactured the Greinke trade... which I agree is scary bc I thought we gave up too much but it was an all in move that was 3 innings from producing.

1. Hiring a full time GM that has more than the interim tag this close to spring training is unlikely. I don't see where Crane has a choice but to be involved in hiring a manager.

2. They were granted immunity from MLB sanctions, not accountability.

3. I don't like that Crane pushed Reid Ryan out for his kid, but it isn't like he has a position on the baseball operations side.

4. The owner is always involved in trades and acquisitions from a payroll standpoint.

You may very well be correct, but I don't see the evidence of that yet.

From reports about the clubhouse environment after Banni left the Rangers, i don't know how well his act will work in H-Town. Pretty authoritarian.

But, #leadership.

Hopefully JD gets the Ranger player men to a higher level, Astro's hire Banister, and we get a chance to find out in a couple of years.
