I'm glad we caught the tipping, but I'm hoping our offense can rise up without needing against the Yanks. Their lineup is 5x better than the Rays. We HAVE to string hits together and score more runs than we did in this series.

So Glasnow did it but folks want to blame us for using it? That's hilarious.


I know, right? WTF? It's completely legal. Do what it takes to win. Stealing signs is also a part of baseball. Who cares?

I just find it all interesting.

I haven't seen anyone saying it was a bad thing. It's just an interesting story.

And I know we're not gonna talk about it but I'm calling it now...Cole stays.

We don't offer him the biggest contract but it's a competitive offer and he rather be here with this team and this staff.

Cole is an Astro next season
If Crane does it then he rockets to number 1 as the best owner of all time as long as we have enough left in the tank to keep the core (Springer, Altuve, Bregman) together.

I think my favorite part about the Rays was Choi. It was so easy to see that he was having fun out there. You almost have to like players like him.

I agree. I watched the discussion on Fox and MLB Network. No one was making the Astros out to be the bad guy. Just mentioned they benefited from it.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and state that tipping pitches is not the primary reason we win this game where 1 run was allowed.

if the Astros resign Cole...payroll will be astronomical for 2020 & 2021. Especially 2020.

but only for those 2 seasons. It can become reasonable again in 2022

I agree, but the dude is just showing off when he unnecessarily does a split on throws that aren't close.

I respect Choi, but damn I am glad we don't face him anymore this season.

Was Darvish tipping his pitches in game 3 as well as game 7? The Astros ripped him in both games but is there any way the Dodgers wouldn't have figured it out after the first time? Anyone know?

He was, and they didn't figure it out until after the second time it happened. I think it was something about how he was holding the ball in his glove.

I like how Bregman is very complimentary of the Rays.

You think he takes a 2 year - $70MM deal instead of a long term $250MM deal? Man, I hope you're right but I just don't see it.

So what are the changes to this roster for the ALCS?

Miley has got to be off. Rondon as well?

I'd go Peacock (if he is ready) and Abreu to replace them.

We need Mrs. Verlander to work on Mrs. Cole...they certainly were chummy after the game. Also Mrs Grienke needs to work on Mrs Cole too. That's the key...money only does so much.

oh, it would still be a 6 or 7-year deal with the 'stros...

but JV's and Grienke's contracts expire after 2021. That's about $65 MM. So some payroll relief would be available beginning with the 2022 season

Luhnow's analytics geeks watch literally everything. If they spot an opening you better believe we're gonna take it!
