Wednesday, MLB finally announced the penalties for the Boston Red Sox for sign-stealing in 2018. Astros fans have to be upset that the Red Sox received such a small punishment.

It's hard to believe that Cora is being punished for his involvement in sign-stealing with the Astros in 2017, but had nothing to do with it occurring when he went to Boston in 2018. The Red Sox released the following statement below.

Most of the players didn't know this was going on? Wow, clearly MLB just wants to sweep this under the rug. The report was supposed to come down on the eve of the season beginning, which could mean the start of the season is nowhere in sight.

What will the Houston Texans do in the NFL Draft? A new mock draft from ESPN’s Matt Miller has the Texans making two surprise picks, including a bold selection at QB!

In this scenario, the Colts trade up to No. 1 and draft Bryce Young, with the Texans selecting QB Will Levis at No.2 overall.

Based on this scenario, the Colts didn't have to give up that much draft capital to go from No. 4 to No. 1. With this in mind, should the Texans trade up to No.1 and secure their favorite QB?

This will be a tough pill to swallow for Texans fans, considering they had the first pick all but locked up heading into the last game of the season.

Be sure to check out the video above as the guys are not all in agreement on this move.
