Hinch......
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.

Whatever that pitch was that danced up there, that was dirty.

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


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.


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.


We've had the innings discussion regarding starters already, but my view is that Peacock will throw the fewest of our starters. We'll see, but he may not pitch many seventh innings. That would mean that in his starts we will see more middle relief. Those guys often have higher counts in earned runs. It follows that, by and large, we'll need to score "some" runs when he's pitching.

If not, then I look forward to being wrong!
6-2/3 of 2 hit ball. I'll take that every single time.

Sure wish we had more runs but Peacock was brilliant tonight.

I love that there are so few Rangers fans there that you could hear the Astros fans giving Peacock an ovation as he walked off the mound.

Hinch comes out with Peacock and just takes the ball. He comes out with JV and gets sent back to his seat on his bucket.

Chirinos was really stoked about that caught stealing. I get the feeling he's not a big fan of roughned odor's brother, roughned odor.

I hope Bannister is watching from some $49.99/night flea infested motel somewhere.

If you get traded mid-season to a new city do you buy an apartment or just live in a hotel? The whole Chironos talk got me wondering

I went to get a beer and I came back during the back to back to back HR commercial and thought it was live-action.

Yep, a great start. It's just one, but it was fantastic and I enjoyed every pitch. Let's hope the pen can close it out now.

I know bumping is your thing on here. Whatever, no worries.

JD gonna hit about 40 doubles & 20 HR for the Mets this season mand become a nice little Luke Scott type late bloomer. He's a lot better than a lot of the experts on this forum think he is.
