Is McHugh hurt? I'm really starting to wonder now, but maybe I am missing something.


I was wondering why Hinch went to Valdez the other day with a rested McHugh... now we know.

Reading previous posts about the lidge, dotel, Wagner bullpen brings back bad memories. People have this illusion that they were great. They had good numbers but that team choked in the last week to miss the playoffs. Wagner popped off about the organization and the city to get traded. He helped resurrect the Astros in 04 by serving up a gopher ball to Biggio in Philly in a great come from behind game for the stros. If you want to see something ugly, look at billy wagner's postseason stats. That guy is trash to me and hopefully writers look fully at numbers to keep him out of the hof.

Rodgers and Corbin Martin are both starters. Which one will start and which one will come out of the bullpen?


We better not see Rodgers unless we are up or down by 8+ runs. He is not good.

His stats in AAA are not good. 1.299 WHIP, 6.3 SO/9, 3.4 BB/9 and almost 9 hits/9
You have to give those stats some context.

The league ERA is 5.67 - league WHIP is 1.514

Maybe thats why some of our guys that hit like Ted Williams down there struggle up here while most of our pitchers outperform their AAA stats.

Isn't that last part some sort of paradox or something? Hitters get worse up here but pitchers get better?

Maybe so.

I guess then you'd have to be a real pos to be hitting .250 there.

It's been brought up before but what is hinchs reluctance to play kemp at second? Not just today but in general when altuve gets the day off.

Yuli is a butcher over there.

I don't know why he gets played anywhere other than 1st. He is not a utility player.

1B isn't even his natural position. Came up at 3b and played some SS while in Cuba.

Well I always think to myself "It is Bregman appreciation day" whenever I see Yuli is getting the start at 3rd.

That's was a classic kemp AB. Foul off a bunch of pitches, squared up a handful and ultimately draws a walk.

When he is selective he's a pesky out. He needs to get back to just getting on base more often via walk.

It would be him or McTaggar
They take a sick pride in doing that

Kaplan doesn't even like the Astros

.403, 41 RBI and 3 slams with the bases juiced. That's good, right?
