There's a whole group of "Stros are cheating" on Twitter. They're ignoring this and putting out info that they have someone stealing signs and flashing a light in for off speed pitches.
That's what they do when they are jealous of a great team.

Not to beat a dead horse, but here's a pretty good analysis of the pitch-tipping by Glasnow:

Glasnow tipping breakdown

It wasn't every pitch, but we had a decent idea on several key pitches of what he was throwing before he started the windup.

Compare that to Morton's pitches, where it was impossible to tell until the pitch was on top of you:

Morton's filthy pitch comparison

Best pitch by pitch breakdown I've seen so far. Jomboy does good work but I want to make him rage this next series.

saw some stats on ESPN this morning....

Reddick is a career .212 hitter in the postseason with a .559 OPS in 181 plate appearances.

that is not a small sample size.

he has hit .098 in the last 2 ALCS in 45 plate appearances. That is simply atrocious.

it's time to give Jake or Diaz a shot. Or more Tucker
When I saw this my first reaction was "that's some Biggio level post season futility". So I checked, and Craig wasn't that bad - .234 BA with 185 PA.

Time to try something else.
While I agree that Reddick's time is wearing thin, I don't think its fair to compare him to a Hall of Famer.
I wonder if W thinks the Dodgers should sub out Bellinger also...this from him in another thread.

Quote:

Cody Bellinger...

a career .178 postseason hitter with a .560 OPS in 145 plate appearances including 52 strike outs.

those are bad numbers

If anyone is still looking for a low profile Apollo 11 hat, I have a 7 3/4 for you. Apparently low profile is not my friend. I look like that kid in t-ball who has a hat 2 sizes too big. Email is jacobbocce72 at gmail dot com. I'm in CS for games and located in a Austin. I'd be willing to ship too.

San Diego pitcher Jacob Nix was reportedly kicked and tased after he was caught crawling through a doggy door of a home in Arizona this past weekend, according to court documents.
A woman in Peoria, Arizona, a suburb of Phoenix, called police after her husband caught a man entering their residence early Sunday morning, according to a police report.
The husband told Peoria Police he was woken up around 3:30 a.m. when he heard sound coming from the doggy door located in his bedroom, the police report said. He said he saw a flashlight shining through the door that leads to the backyard and then noticed a man attempting to crawl through. Police identified the man as 23-year-old Nix in their report, and noted that his employer is the San Diego Padres.
Nix was kicked in the face by someone inside the home before fellow baseball player Tom Cosgrove, who plays for a minor league team, tried to pull him out, the documents said. As the pair began running away, the person inside the home "leaned out of the doggie door and deployed his taser," hitting Nix in his torso.
Nix told police that he thought he was at his own home, even though he doesn't have a doggy door and usually enters through the front door. He could not explain and would not elaborate further why he tried to enter someone else's house. Court documents said he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

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.

I think there is a chance he stays. Everyone knows he would like to play out West, he has never hidden that. In on of the Astros Bases Loaded interviews his wife was pretty clear that they like that Houston is in the West so they can visit family on a regular basis. In the end only he and his family know what will happen.
