If it were 2-0, I'd say no.
If it's 2-1, I'd say yes.
Now that it's 3-1, I don't know.

Sometimes you just gotta square up those 100 mph heaters. But man, so hard to do. Altuve is a special player and we are fortunate to have him.

99.1. His fastest of the night.


Does AJ give him the 8th? He's only at 84 pitches.
I dont think so. He pulled JV early last night. I think he does the same here.

That's what I read. Based on Hinch's comments, Cole should pitch the 8th. And he doesnt plan to pull anyone else early in their last starts.

yeah. They haven said anyone in the pen was warming up, maybe he sends him out for his 10th K and that streak. That would put him at 303 and even if he had one more start a shot at 313.

Yuli. Man, I wish he was about 5 years younger. He's had a great, great year. He is showing no signs of decline, but you have to wonder how many more years he can play at this level.

It would be great if Yordan could come around as a 1B and Yuli could DH a la Beltran.

292 + 10 = 302 mathguy.

I thought he was at 302 already.

He makes the least amount in his contract next season at $8mm. Its also the last year of his contract and will be a UFA in 2021. I wonder if we offer him a 2 year extension this offseason?

Frustrating that the offense hasn't given Cole more room to work with against a scrub today

All of a sudden, Cole is struggling some.

Luhnow likes to lock up his guys, but Yuli will be 36 or 37 when he becomes an UFA. A two year extension at reasonable price would be nice. Didn't Beltran get $15m for his year long deal?

Any probability of a co cy young this year
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

Is there a statistical measure for clutch hitting? Seems Gurriel has been the most clutch Astro by the 'seeing eye' test

There were 46 voters last year. If they each split half their votes for JV and Cole 1/2 then its a tie.
