Hot Take

Joel Blank: Are the Astros poised to be the Golden State Warriors of baseball?

The Warriors are definitely the gold standard for dynasties in professional sports right now, but the Astros certainly have the talent on the field and in front office to eventually be in that conversation. Of course, Houston needs to win another ring this season to have a serious discussion about this, but I wouldn't bet against them.

The Astros are loaded with Carlos Correa, Lance McCullers, and Alex Bregman all under 25 years old. Plus, the minor league system has several high-end players like Kyle Tucker and Forrest Whitley just waiting to get to the big leagues to make a name for themselves. Don't be surprised if the Astros become the Warriors of baseball sooner than later.

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.
