Tim Kurkjian, Jeff Passan lay out important historic perspective on Astros World Series no-hitter

Baseball fans have had only three opportunities to watch a no-hitter in the postseason, and just two of those occurred in the World Series. Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series and now the Houston Astros. Pretty special stuff considering this is the 118th World Series, and it's only happened twice. What's even more incredible is that Dusty Baker was in the visitor's dugout watching the only other postseason no-hitter, which Phillies' Roy Halladay threw against Baker's Reds in the 2010 NL Division series.

And to go a step further, Jeff Passan talks about being in the stands on June 25th at Yankee Stadium this season and watching Cristian Javier and the Astros combine to no-hit the Yankees. I have to say, I didn't think I would ever see Jeff Passan so happy talking about the Astros. Be sure to check out the video above to see their immediate reactions after history was made on Wednesday night.

Deshaun Watson will make his Cleveland Browns debut this Sunday against his former team at NRG Stadium. Watson has completed his suspension from the NFL for alleged sexual misconduct with dozens of massage therapists, and this Sunday will be the first game he has played in 700 days.

The Browns sit at 4-7 hoping Watson will be the spark the team needs to stack some wins and get into the Wild Card race. The Texans are still searching for their second win of the season, and many believe the team will be hiring another head coach come January.

With this in mind, who has the worst reputation? The Texans or Deshaun Watson?

It seems like an easy answer with Watson's legal troubles, but upon further review, the answer has to be the Texans. The Texans have hired two consecutive coaches that no other NFL team even interviewed. It seems like no quality candidates have any interest in coaching the Texans. Watson, however, had teams lining up for his services when the Texans decided to trade him.

Be sure to check out the video above as we dive into this topic and make a convincing case, as crazy as it sounds, that Watson is perceived to have a better reputation.
