NFT: Astros punishment decision coming soon?

pjcas18 : 1/13/2020 1:56 pm
See below.

I've read tweets suggesting the penalties will be massive.

If so, I will fully admit I was wrong. I expect/expected penalties, but no "lifetime bans" as someone was suggesting.

My assumption was fines, draft picks, maybe short suspensions.

We shall see.

1 year each for Hinch and Luhnow
Losses of 1st and 2nd rd picks in 2020 and 2021
$5M fine
Don't they also have to publicly admit that they cheated?

A first and 2nd round picks in consecutive drafts is pretty steep. There was also rumblings there were going to lose international money.
