I know we are one weekend in the season but this current pitching staff will not carry them to a championship. One of our minor leaguers will need to step it up or someone outside the organization.

Specifically our starters is who I talking about.


Our top two are solid but after that is serious ????

The pitching has been pretty damn good so far... not at all the issue IMO.

We got to the WS by riding Mike Fiers for a month as our ace and no JV until august. . Pitching will be fine. I'll start to panic around June if we haven't improved

I'm talking about winning in the playoffs and World Series.

Correa and the other key guys always light it up in Arlington, so I'm not that worried about the offensive output right now.

Man the timing looks way off so far. Late consistently on fastballs, while flailing at breaking stuff.

Way off on that jump. On the radio Friday they said they changed the lights to more of an LED light. I know those stupid LED headlights suck ass as traffic comes at you so I can see misplaying a ball. Like TK said too as I was typing.

Say what you will about our pitching and offense, but our rundown execution this year has been solid.

When you think about it, having a lefty starter that allows 3 runs in three innings is better than having a lefty starter who allows 5 runs in the first inning.
Verlander is a righty.
He's talking about Keuchel lol
Oh I see. I don't remember Keuchel giving up 5 runs in the first inning too often.

Why does anyone think the pitching is bad? Ave less than 3 earned runs a game. A mediocre offense should win the division easily if that average holds....our offense is simply worse than mediocre.

Thornton now holds the record for most strikeouts by a #BlueJays starter in his Major League debut. He has eight, previous record was seven.

This was who we traded for #Diaz... sounds like a great f'ing trade

Diaz is 0-9 with 2 errors so far in his first series with the Astros.

Altuve swinging at a pitch that bounces a foot in front of the plate.

McHugh looked horrible yesterday
9 Ks in 5 innings

And perfect thru the first 4

That guy is a cancer

We wouldn't be worried about the pitching if the offense had a pulse right now.

We need a rally.

I don't understand Hinch's obsession with rotating rest this early in the season.

We should be rotating rest via the DH slot...but we should still put in our best hitting lineup.

This core lineup needs to be batting every single game:

Springer
Altuve
Bregman
Brantley
Correa

White/Kemp/Reddick/Gurriel are kind of interchangeable. But the group above needs to be a LOCK
Marvin

The Aggies offense and the Astros offense have this a frustrating weekend for watching my favorite baseball teams.

But, it's not over yet!

There we go. That's the little bloop that gets us going.
