The key to getting back into this game is to get some runners on base for Jake.

I'll be glad if they make each pitcher face three batters a rule. This sheet is annoying

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
It's a very long season and it's just as much about giving guys opportunities and keeping them involved as it is giving other guys rest.

Altuve bunting? I never get it with 2 outs

Unless they were shifted

Perfectly fitting conclusion to that game

That was one of the ugliest and most disinterested offensive performances I have seen in a long time from the Astros.

3 hits on the day: a pinch hit single by Tyler White and 2 hits from Jake in the 9 hole

4 runs over the last 3 games. I'm not sure we'll have a worse offensive stretch all year long.

Well that was a disappointing way to start the season. Hoping for a slumpbuster sweep of the rangers.

Well, let's hope this is the case.

Miley was about what I expected. We'll need to score some runs to win when he and Peacock take the mound.

Offense is scuffling, but at least it was in a place that the Astros already suck bottom. We got that torture chamber out of the way, so keep your chins up and let's take some more batting practice. I encourage Diaz to get in line multiple times over the next 24 hours.

Pretty sure opening up a 3 game set in Arlington will do.

Why do you say that about Peacock? The last 3 years he's kept his ERA in the low to mid 3s. Career he's got 4 ERA as a starter, but that's weighted down by early career struggles. He had a 3.22 as a starter in 2017 (largest recent sample size as a starter). Throw in he's developed a change up to counter lefties (his weakness) and I fully expect the best Peacock we've seen.
