We should probably stop arguing about keuchel. We are gonna roll into the postseason with one of the best rotations in the history of the game, and the best lineup in baseball. Keuchel chose not to be a part of it, and it worked out better for us (TBD how it works out for him)

He's pretty good

Under the radar, this former MVP is killing it

Quote:

Altuve is batting .336/.385/.619 with 18 home runs and a 1.004 OPS in 64 games since the start of July. He has a 165 wRC+ -- that means he's been 65% better than league average at the plate.

And this is great to see

Quote:

Finally!

We need Carlos to elevate this line up from awesome to all time great.

He also helps the defense by keeping Bregman at third over Diaz.

7th? Man if he can just get back to where he was pre-IL.

A bat like in the 7th hole would be ridiculous.

Am I reading the home-field advantage rules right?



Astros vs Yankees - Astros hold tie-breaker over Yankees after going 4-3 against them this year

Astros vs Dodgers - Astros hold tie-breaker with a (as of yesterday) 47-18 (Astros record vs AL West) vs 43-24 (Dodgers vs NL West) advantage over the Dodgers since they did not play each other in 2019


Quote:

Had the clubs not met in Interleague Play, the second tiebreaker would be division record. If that were also a tie, the tiebreaker would be intraleague records (the NL club's record vs. NL teams and the AL team's record vs. AL teams).

I think it will be necessary to have him back to get through the Yankees and Dodgers

Correa is playing today, Thursday, and this weekend if all goes well. This is essentially his rehab assignment since we're out of minor league games.

A public message to Correa: "No more injuries. Period. Stay away from so-called massage artists. I don't even want to see you wearing a band-aid."

1. Springer CF
2. Altuve 2B
3. Brantley LF
4. Bregman 3B
5. Alvarez DH
6. Gurriel 1B
7. Correa SS
8. Tucker RF

Tucker at 9, Robbie at 8. When George hits a gapper I want Robbie closer to home.

That line up with JV on the mound could be one of the greatest of all time.

I'd rather have our eight guys who OPS .900+ hit 1-8, but it's a good problem to have.

8 out of 9 for the lineup of death. I guess AJ decided not to shoot his whole wad at the Rangers tonight.

sh*tloads of Moon hats and some Bun B orange hats stocked at the team store during lunch if any of you in town dingles are still looking. Moon hats had fitted and snapbacks available.

Has anyone ever hit 30 HR & hit under .200?

Odor doing special things this year. Blazing trails.

You're giving the Rangers considerable benefit of the doubt there, aren't you?!

He's hit 27 HR, driven in 81 and scored 70. And has a wRC+ of 75 and a bWAR of 0.6 that is buoyed by a really good defensive component. That takes talent.

Terrible news for him. He's hitting the FA market late in his career during an injury plagued year where he underperformed.

Yep, very bad news for him. Perhaps a good opportunity for us to bring him back on a team friendly deal though. We'll be leaning on a few young guys in the pen next year so would be nice if he returned as a vet presence.

Farmer, did you end up ordering an extra low profile 7 1/2?

If not, and if anyone is going to the game, I would gladly pay for one plus a little extra.

I'll be at the game on Friday. Happy to pick up whatever you need, if they have it!
