Couple of Aggies on the Rangers thread have lost their minds. Grapesoda, whoever that dude is, has some serious hate going on for Aggie Astro fans. You can root for your team without acting like a juvenile twit.
He spends an inordinate amount of time on the politics board griping about weed laws. Might explain something.

Kicking off a 7 game homestand against the AL Central, starting with a 3 game series against ALCentral leading Minnesota Twins (12-7).

We are 1 game back of division and league leading Seattle Mariners (16-9)

Better bring the bats!

Isn't that the guy they swore was one of us undercover posting on their thread?

Anyone going on Friday night? I will be up for trading a couple of tumblers for a bobblehead if you can get your hands on one for me.

Good God, that was a blast!

Time for Alvarez to come on up!

Put Tyler White on the 60-day DL with an oblique strain or something and get the kid some ABs.

Holy Hell, I think it hit the building as it seemed to be outside the fence. That poor ball.

Not going to the game but do you have anymore tumblers you'd be willing to sell? Missed your message the first time around. Would love to have one to take over to my Mariner fan FIL next time the Stros play the M's.

Tyler White. 12 games, 33 AB. 7 hits, 6 singles and a double, 6 BB, 12 K. 1 run scored, 0 RBI.

That ladies and gentlemen, is your DH.

Does 2019's line up top 2017?

So far we have a better wRC+, wOBA, Slug, Obp, Hard Hit%, but not Avg. We're striking out more, but also walking more. Obviously, the sample size is too small, but I don't see anyone not being able to continue to do what they've done so far.

Meanwhile Alvarez is doing .339/.451/.915 in 59 ABs, 11ks, 11BBs, 4 doubles and 10 HRs

As much as I want to see a DH that actually hits, I suspect Lunhow and the club will be very careful with Alvarez. Leave aside the clock starting and those implications, I think the Tucker experiment and it's results will make them tread very softly.

Hailed as the next Ted Williams. Stunk it up last year when called up to the majors. Has stunk since.

partially hailed as ted because swing looks similar, and because he portrayed ted in a pbs bio/documentary

but, people need to keep his last 12 months in mind when they criticize teams for holding back prospects in the minors

Drafted 5th overall on 2015. It was the same draft we picked Bregman & Dax Cameron.

Little brother for former Astros LF/DH Preston at the time.

Moved through the minors at an accelerated rate. Double A at 20. Big league campus at 21 (destroyed it). Started in Triple A at 21 then got the call to the bigs. He had a rough start and wasn't given consistent PT since we were still in the middle of a race with the As.

We signed Brantley in the offseason which made the outfield too crowded for a 22 year old prospect.

He's gotten off to a slow start in triple A this year.

Great. Angel Hernandez at 1B. So there will be at least 4 bad calls just on plays at 1B. And tomorrow we are screwed.
