MLB commissioner Rob Manfred has had a rough year. Not only has he had to deal with the Houston Astros cheating their way to a World Series championship, but he has also dealt with backlash from players and teams that his punishment wasn't enough. Now, the MLB season could be lost because the owners and players can't agree on a deal. Many fans think he should resign or be fired for his lack of significant action. Others feel like he still has a chance to redeem himself. What do you think? ⚾

While other sports leagues are making plans to restart, baseball is on the brink of not starting at all. This is just one of the latest failures of commissioner Rob Manfred.

Manfred is supposed to protect the baseball's integrity, but when faced with a situation where he could really set an example, he flinched with everyone's eyes on him. He used "lack of precedent" as an excuse not to strip the Astros title. Only cowards afraid of making real change use that excuse.

Not only did he fade on his responsibility, he called the World Series trophy—the most coveted trophy in the sport—a piece of metal. Anyone willing to diminish the value of something that important doesn't deserve to be a caretaker of the game.

Tylt sports editor Dan Tran and former Sonoma Stompers assistant general manager Jen Ramos talk about the Astros cheating scandal and provide some alternate punishments.

To pin baseball's dire situation on one person wouldn't be fair. The failure of planning the 2020 season shouldn't fall on just Manfred. It's the owners and players who play a huge part in that.

While Manfred's track record isn't impressive so far. He definitely should not be fired.
