While Manfred said the Astros "reacted quickly and in an appropriate way" to fire Taubman in the wake of the incident, he acknowledged that the current investigation began due to concerns surrounding how the team reacted to the initial story. The Astros falsely claimed Sports Illustrated reporter Stephanie Apstein fabricated Taubman's clubhouse behavior.

Astros GM Jeff Luhnow met with Apstein on Friday. Apstein requested a retraction of the club's false statement, but Luhnow did not commit to one, according to Ben Strauss of the Washington Post.

Apstein reported that Taubman targeted three female reporters in the clubhouse and repeatedly shouted, "Thank God we got Osuna! I'm so f------ glad we got Osuna!" after the Astros clinched the ALCS in Game 6. One of those reporters was wearing an anti-domestic violence purple bracelet.
