MLB Scrubs, Rewrites MLB.com Column Critical Of Rangers

Regardless of how stupid the original comment was, it’s not cool to scrub it clean.

Here’s the original opening of the piece:

The Astros are now the good guys. It’s more than just who they are. It’s what they represent: a great city pushed to its breaking point.

If there’s karma — that is, if the Baseball Gods are paying attention — the Astros will have one kind of week, the Rangers another. At a time when an entire country is pitching in to help Houston, the Rangers decided they were the ones who could not be inconvenienced.

Commence eye roll.
