I logged on to offer a way-too-early overreaction, but I see the stampede has already started! Haha.

Here's mine. I watched Diaz in spring training, and now a couple of games in Tampa. Straight up worthless so far. If he was supposed to be Marwin's replacement, well he can't carry Marwin's jock strap.


There a guy with a dinger last game and a double tonight who was Marwins actual replacement in LF.


Does Brantley play first, third and short? I thought Diaz was signed to be the "utility" replacement part of Marwin's role. No?


Correct. I guess Jeff should have found another former all star short stop to be our utility player.


Did you not notice the tongue in cheek preface to my original Diaz post? Don't get all high and mighty just yet. Pace yourself, it's a long season!

Hinch blew the fk outta that one.

Now that this season is basically over, who are the free agents we can shoot for in the offseason to make a run in 2020?

Last night just makes me more mad at correa.

Hot take: Correa isn't really hurt, but sitting out these games in protest of not being offered a contract extension.

I'm glad I didn't catch the game yesterday. I probably would have been pissed off.

On a side note for those who stream-- are you having issues with the MLB.tv blackout this year? I've been using overplay for Smart DNS for the last two years and this year it isn't working. I contacted overplay and they say MLB is actively blocking VPN and Smart DNS sites. They are also working on a solution.

So, I'm looking at Reddit streams. Those who do it, how are you getting the streams to your TVs? I have rokus all around in my house. Is there a particular channel or setting you use?

Well if the Astros had to lose one game of this series I'm glad it was last night. Maybe not resigning Charlie was the right move, but I sure miss him being part of our team. I can't help feeling happy for him to get a great contract.

Charlie is still a good pitcher. I think our front office just had concerns about his durability over an entire season and especially over two seasons. He's worth the risk at $7M per season. At $15M, he gets a little pricey, considering the other extensions we were handing out.

At the end of the year, we'll know if Luhnow made the right call on Morton.

I'm glad you posted this because I have not been able to get the streaming to work with Overplay this year. I was thinking about giving one of the other smart DNS services a try.

Yes. It's been brutal. I'm now considering splitting a Fubo subscription with my dad.

The damn MLB is probably figuring out how to once again keep us from their product. Genius!

Anyone tried out fubo yet? I've been holding out hope that dtvnow would finally get it because of at&t but that doesn't seem to be happening.

I think that was it too, but he would make a pretty good middle reliever. He proved that during the 2017 post season. Knowing how small Charlie's ego seems to be, he would probably have accepted that.

That is just mind boggling to me that directvnow doesn't have it.

yea, but tampa was willing to give him 30 million (maybe 45), so i see why he signed there

it's definitely easier to find a non-legit stream of the game, so until they figure this out they'll continue to shoot themselves in the foot

i pay for xfinity, yet if i want to watch an afternoon game at work it won't let me (says i have to be on my home wifi). so, hello r/mlbstreams

Sounds a lot like Carlos Clowney needs to pull his head out of his arse and get back on the field...
