The Houston Astros did right, even though their settlement was a few days too late, in terminating assistant General Manager Brandon Taubman on Thursday.

Of course, it was ultimately confirmed that he unleashed disgraceful support of Houston rostering reliever Roberto Osuna-- a player who was formerly suspended 75 games for violating MLB's domestic violence policy-- in the direction of a group of female reporters.

It remains to be seen if another team in the league will take a chance at employing Taubman in the aftermath of this disturbing ordeal. If he does get another job in MLB, sources close to ESPN's Jeff Passan adamantly believe that he will be dealt a hefty suspension.

Passan also notes that the Astros themselves could be handed a fine, not only for Taubman's behavior, but for the ambiguous statement they released in the wake of the allegations.

Their initial statement cited their beliefs that Taubman was innocent, and it even concluded Sports Illustrated, specifically reporter Stephanie Apstein, of fabricating the story.

MLB is still currently conducting an investigation into the incident and we figure that, as soon as those proceedings are concluded, a looming suspension will be dealt to Taubman, along with a fine for the Astros.

These had to be the expected repercussions, right?

We just hope that Taubman isn't hired again to make him eligible to serve the impending moratorium. His actions were simply that reprehensible.
