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. She said the general attitude towards the Astros on the national level is very skeptical about what they are doing, but are waiting to see what will happen. She said the Astros have kind of been on a bit of a downward spiral since the 2007 draft where they didn’t draft a single useful player for the team.
