This week on Sports With Friends:

On October 19, 2019, the Houston Astros won their 2nd AL Pennant in 3 years. At a clubhouse celebration, then-Assistant General Manager Brandon Taubman taunted a group of female reporters, referring to Roberto Osuna, the closer the Astros acquired while he was suspended 75 games for violating MLB’s domestic-violence policy. Two days later, after Sports Illustrated reporter Stephanie Apstein reported the incident, the Astros called the story a fabrication. Acclaimed Sports Reporter Christine Brennan for USA Today, a commentator on ABC News, CNN, PBS NewsHour and NPR, and a best-selling author, joined the show to discuss the events that took place.

Before the episode concluded, the topic of the eventual World Series Champion Washington Nationals’ trip to the White House came up. There, National Catcher Kurt Suzuki put on a “Make America Great Again” hat on when he addressed the crowd. That controversy was the subject of the second half of the episode.
