HOUSTON — Major League Baseball said in a statement Tuesday that the league will interview relevant parties regarding allegations published Monday night in a Sports Illustrated article.
According to the report by SI’s Stephanie Apstein, during the celebration in the Houston Astros’ clubhouse after the team’s 6-4 victory over the New York Yankees in Game 6 of the American League Championship Series on Saturday, assistant general manager Brandon Taubman turned to a group of female reporters — including one wearing a purple domestic violence awareness bracelet — and repeatedly yelled, “Thank God we got (Roberto) Osuna! I’m so f—ing glad we got Osuna!”

The shouts appeared to be directed specifically at the reporter wearing the bracelet, NPR reported Tuesday night. Taubman, according to the report, has complained in the past when that reporter tweeted about domestic violence awareness on nights when Osuna pitched.
Last season, Osuna, 24, served a 75-game suspension for violating MLB’s domestic violence policy. The closer, while a member of the Toronto Blue Jays, was charged in May 2018 with domestic assault; the charge was later withdrawn when the woman he is alleged to have assaulted made it clear she would not travel from Mexico to Toronto to testify. Houston acquired him via trade in July 2018.

The SI report Monday was corroborated by multiple witnesses present in the clubhouse at the time.

MLB declined to comment directly on the allegations, instead saying in a statement Tuesday, “Domestic violence is extraordinarily serious and everyone in baseball must use care to not engage in any behavior — whether intentional or not — that could be construed as minimizing the egregiousness of an act of domestic violence. We became aware of this incident through the Sports Illustrated article. The Astros have disputed Sports Illustrated’s characterization of the incident. MLB will interview those involved before commenting further.”

HOUSTON — To nobody’s surprise, three-time Cy Young winner Max Scherzer is officially the Game 1 starter for the Washington Nationals. He’ll face off against Houston Astros starter Gerrit Cole, who is riding a streak of 19 consecutive winning decisions, in the first showdown between two powerhouse starting rotations.
Both pitchers have excelled so far in the postseason. Scherzer is 2-0 with a 1.80 ERA and 27 strikeouts in three starts and one relief appearance (20 innings). In the division series against the Dodgers he allowed one run in seven innings, and against the Cardinals in the NLCS he took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, finishing with one hit, no runs and 11 strikeouts over seven frames.

Cole, meanwhile, has won all three of his postseason starts and has allowed one run in 22 2/3 innings with 32 strikeouts. The two hard-throwing right-handers arguably have the best pure stuff of any starters in baseball. Cole had the second-highest average fastball velocity among starting pitchers at 97.1 mph and set a record for starters by striking out 39.9 percent of the batters he faced in the regular season.
Scherzer had the 10th-highest average fastball velocity at 94.9 mph and the third-highest strikeout rate in the regular season.

“I’ve been in the situation, faced really good pitchers here in the National League over the years: Clayton Kershaw, Jacob deGrom, those guys,” Scherzer said. “You just know you’ve got to come out there, you’re going to be throwing up zeros. And you’ve got to try to match the intensity from your opponent. And Cole’s had a terrific year. So obviously it’s going to be one heck of a challenge.”

Overall, Scherzer went 11-7 with a 2.92 ERA in 27 starts in the regular season. He did miss time in July and August with a back strain and bursitis in the scapula beneath his shoulder and had a 4.74 ERA after returning from the injured list in late August, but he has appeared to be at full strength in October. It was the first season in his career in which he failed to make 30 starts. Cole went 20-5, leading the AL with a 2.50 ERA and 326 strikeouts.
Cole said he most admires Scherzer’s determination that has helped him build a potential Hall of Fame resume.
“I feel like that word kind of covers how he competes, how he prepares, Cole said. “You have to be determined to be durable. My gosh, he’s as durable as they come. You have to be determined to be prepared. And he’s as prepared as they come. And then his presence on the mound is determined. He’s got a job to do, and he wants to go out and do it and just put the blinders on and get after the ball.”
The Nationals struggled to a 19-31 record early, but have excelled ever since, including a sweep of the Cardinals in the National League Championship Series.

“I love this team we have here in ’19,” Scherzer said. “I speak to our group the most of how much clubhouse chemistry we have, we’re just playing good baseball together. We’re really firing on all cylinders. And there’s just — we’ve got some mojo going, that’s the easiest way to describe it. That we just seem to be playing great baseball together, and anybody who gets their number called just continues to step up and perform for the team.”
Game 2 will feature Stephen Strasburg against Justin Verlander.

The Astros enter as the heaviest betting favorite to win the World Series since 2007, but MVP candidate Alex Bregman says facing Scherzer and Strasburg obviously will be a big challenge.

“They have multiple plus pitches. They throw all of them. They have confidence in all of them. They are super tough,” Bregman said. “They are two of the best pitchers in the game. Patrick Corbin is unbelievable as well and so is [Anibal] Sanchez. It’s going to be a fun series.”
The Astros faced some unconventional strategy in the first two rounds as the Rays and Yankees both relied heavily on their bullpens. They’ll face a more old-school approach in the World Series.

“If you want to do well against the Nats, you’ve got to beat their starters, and then make them make decisions as the game goes on,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “If you sit back and kind of wait for the bullpen or wait for them to make a decision, you’ll look at Strasburg and Scherzer throwing 120, 130 pitches and you’ll be too deep in the game to make up a difference. Those guys getting 21, 24, 27 outs is a real possibility for them. And that makes it tough either way.”
Nationals manager Dave Martinez didn’t announce a Game 3 starter, leaving open the possibility that Patrick Corbin could pitch in relief if needed in Game 1. He’s made three relief appearance along with two starts in the postseason. “We shall see,” Martinez said about Corbin perhaps coming out of the bullpen before he starts a game.
In a statement released Monday after the SI report was published, the Astros claimed the report was “misleading and completely irresponsible.”

“Our executive was supporting the player during a difficult time,” the team’s statement said. “His comments had everything to do about the game situation that just occurred and nothing else — they were also not directed toward any specific reporters.”
On Tuesday, Taubman apologized for his behavior via a statement released by the team but maintained that his comments were misinterpreted.
“This past Saturday, during our clubhouse celebration, I used inappropriate language for which I am deeply sorry and embarrassed,” Taubman said. “In retrospect, I realize that my comments were unprofessional and inappropriate. My overexuberance in support of a player has been misinterpreted as a demonstration of a regressive attitude about an important social issue. Those that know me know that I am a progressive and charitable member of the community, and a loving and committed husband and father. I hope that those who do not know me understand that the Sports Illustrated article does not reflect who I am or my values. I am sorry if anyone was offended by my actions.”

Astros manager AJ Hinch said he was “disappointed” that the incident occurred and that “we all need to be better across the board, in the industry.” Hinch said he wasn’t there when it happened and, “like everybody,” read what happened.
“It’s unfortunate. It’s uncalled for,” Hinch said just hours before Game 1 of the World Series against the Washington Nationals. “For me, as a leader in this organization down here in the clubhouse, on the field, I take everything that happens in the clubhouse to heart.
“No one — it doesn’t matter if it’s a player, a coach, a manager, any of you members of the media — should ever feel like when you come into our clubhouse that you’re going to be uncomfortable or disrespected.”
Also Tuesday, the Baseball Writers Association of America denounced the incident and the team’s handling of it. The BBWAA called for multiple members of the Astros front office to issue a public apology to the media outlets involved in the story.
The BBWAA’s statement said it was “alarmed and dismayed by the actions” of the team and its public relations department and said the team’s denial of the incident was “an unethical and intentional fabrication, designed to discredit our members and all journalists.”
