Alyson Footer Gives Clarity To The Astros Players Uproar

Alyson Footer, MLB.com, joined The Triple Threat to discuss the latest happenings with the Astros. She thought this uproar over Mark Appel throwing a bullpen was a bit over blown by the media. She said twitter got ahead of the story and helped to blow things out of proportion. Footer says the “jury is still out” when it comes to how the league views Bo Porter’s managerial style with the Astros because it’s too early to know.
