Sam Dyson’s girlfriend accuses him of domestic violence on her Instagram

File this under “we expect to hear more about this soon, but for now it’s worth noting”: Alexis Elizabeth, the girlfriend of free agent reliever Sam Dyson has accused Dyson of domestic violence on her Instagram and on the Instagram account she maintains in the name of her cat.

In the post under her cat’s name — which she writes from the perspective of the cat — she alleges that Dyson has thrown things at the cat and at her and has had angry outbursts. There’s a photo of a destroyed box that the cat uses as a house/hideout, which she claims Dyson destroyed while the cat was in it.

Astros Staffer’s Outburst at Female Reporters Illustrates MLB’s Forgive-and-Forget Attitude Toward Domestic Violence

More than an hour after José Altuve won the Astros the pennant, the party in the Houston clubhouse still raged. Rightfielder Josh Reddick was crushing vodka Red Bulls. Starter Gerrit Cole smoked a cigar. Shortstop Carlos Correa gazed lovingly at the American League championship trophy.

And in the center of the room, assistant general manager Brandon Taubman turned to a group of three female reporters, including one wearing a purple domestic-violence awareness bracelet, and yelled, half a dozen times, “Thank God we got Osuna! I’m so f———glad we got Osuna!”

The outburst was offensive and frightening enough that another Houston staffer apologized. The Astros declined to comment. They also declined to make Taubman available for an interview.
