Just out of curiosity why are all of our old sorry catchers managers?

Because they went to Creighton and Dartmouth. They're really smart.

Besides the manager and the coaches the catcher is most involved in the game and game planning. Seems to me to be the case anyway.

315. And counting.

I remember JRR. That frame and the ball just came from what looked like 50 feet away. And he didn't exactly know where it was going. JRRitis was a real disease.

316. Can he get to 325 on the season? That's a huge number.

Cole is on one heck of a run this year after a few early bumps. I think with one more start he may pitch himself into (and JV out of) the Cy Young

Will he get another start? By number of games left, you'd say 'yes'. But I don't know if they'll get creative the last couple games to line things up for the playoffs.

I kind of wish we could evaluate playoff performance in the case of a tie where both teams make it go the playoffs....

Whoever does better in the playoffs wins Cy young.

Cole vs JV is too close to call

Bregs just ticked the OPS up to 1.009.

Yes. JV Saturday and Cole Sunday to close the season.

I want Cole back next year! He and JV need each other. Get'er done JD!

I feel like Cole has to credit the Astros for turning him around to a certain degree. Would Cole be the pitcher he was the last two years without our analytics and coaching?

Not to take away his talent, but sometimes it takes an organization to get the most out of players.

While he could make more money elsewhere, we may be able to give him a dynasty here in Houston which may not be the case at another club.

Never seems easy these late innings unless we have 8+ on the board

I hope it's the landing area and not Pressley's knee bothering him.

Cole isn't taking a "hometown" deal, so might as well get that thought out of your head.

On a different note. I was looking back at some all-time strikeout seasons. Holy **** was Randy Johnson good from 1999-2002. Just insane K numbers. You forget about it from that era of homers, but he was dominant.

Not seeing that same break on Pressly's pitches
