I saw J.R. pitch at the Astrodome vs. the Reds & Tom Seaver late in the 1979 division race.

J.R. struck out 15 Reds in 11 innings of work. Astros won in 13 innings.

closed to within a 1/2-game of 1st place, but Cincy won the Sunday series finale and held on for a few more days to win the West

Correa is like the old saying about a boat...two happiest days are the day you buy it and the day you sell it.

I remember being pumped when we drafted him and I'll be pumped when we trade him.

I'd be pretty shocked if Correa is in the league when he's 30. I've never met a 25 year old with a bad back.

He's under club control (arbitration eligible the next two years) through the 2021 season.

I've had a bad back since I was 15.

But to your point, back issues ended by baseball career after two years of college, so I could definitely see an early retirement.

I don't know WTF happened but I can't put Miley on the postseason roster at this point. It's not bad luck. He's been absolutely terrible for way too long.

Who else thinks that in his contract year Correa will play the entire season and put up stupid numbers?

Do we roll with a 3 man rotation and then bullpen arm to start if needed?

Miley got jobbed there, but yeah don't see a role for him in playoffs right now.

And be the next GianCarlo? I am fine with that. Win another World Series with him cheap and ship him up to NYC while the media up there rips him and his Chica apart

All will be forgiven if he shows up in the postseason.

Let's see how Miley fares the rest of the game

I still think he needs to start in the playoffs, but with
a short leash

Honestly thinking about Correas issue I think he's still had nagging back issues all along when he first returned

He basically just said **** it, decides that it wasn't worth risking re injury during the regular season now that we've clinched, because he knows that his money will be made during the playoffs when he's in the limelight....

He wants to be as fresh as possible for that playoff rather than risk re injury prematurely

It's all about Carlos in other words....

IF that's true, it's better for the team anyway.

Although I agree that the dude is brittle and pretty ****ing weird. To say that he's never come through is ridiculous. We don't win in 2017 without him


He hurt his thumb celebrating after game 5...

Too much risk unless the series count is 3 games to zero in our favor

I'm in attendance tonite doing my best EKGill impression - waiting for hinch to call me down. Im 56 and I got a bad wing and I could still throw better than Miley.
