Let's dismantle the latest anti-Astros propaganda from the national media

Astros fans are looking forward to putting the sign-stealing scandal behind them as they wait for the 2020 season to get started, but the national media isn't ready to let the Astros players off the hook just yet.

ESPN 97.5's Joel Blank weighs in on ESPN's list of the top 100 players for 2020 and explains why so many Astros players aren't ranked accurately in his opinion.

Thursday on Around The Horn, Tony Reali, Frank Isola, Sarah Spain and Woody Paige discuss if former Astros manager A.J. Hinch and GM Jeff Luhnow have truly served their punishments if they are allowed to return next season even if no games are played in 2020.

First, we have no idea what the 2020 season will look like at this point, so there's no reason to complain about their punishments because MLB's 2020 season could still take place. Second, both Hinch and Luhnow were fired. MLB handed down the suspensions, if you have an issue with their punishments, then go after commissioner Rob Manfred.

Should this really be an Astros story?
