I'm pretty sure it's a common tactic for local voters to leave someone off the ballot if they threaten their guy (MVP, Cy Young, etc) but it's all bush league.

the Rangers would be the second wildcard if the season ended today --- how about that
Fangraphs projections give them a 1.5% chance of making the playoffs. So they will spend the next month making poor choices to hang on to guys they should flip, setting them back for next year.

The Cy Young would have to be Verlander's at this point. He leads (or is very close to leading) in every single category. His whip, avg against, and strikeouts are impressive.


Wins too

Just shows how crappy the rest of the majors are if the rangers would get the 2nd WC


Yea. It seems likely that the Red Sox or Indians will get revved up and start running away with the second wild card at some point

Which injured Astros are expected back first?

Are Springer and Diaz in that group and expected back around the same time?

My guess on order of return:

Diaz
Springer
Altuve? (T&P)
Carlos

the Round Rock Astros take the field again.

Stubbs catching Cole --- that could be interesting

White needs to GTFO and stick to pounding beers at Kenney Store.

Five lefties in the lineup. That's something you don't see when we're healthy.

I swear, just about every homer I've seen from Alvarez in these Twitter clips is opposite field

Huge red flag. He can't get around on the fastball. Leave him in the minors another year.

It would be the Rangers thing to do to sign Dallas.

I know your post is a bit of tongue and cheek, his swing is an inside/out swing and is long, so you will see a lot of opposite field hits and HR's. I am interested in seeing him hit in the majors and how his swing will translate to major league pitching.

That's also a good approach if you're 6-6

Not saying it is necessarily a bad approach, just curious how MLB pitchers will pitch around that swing. It is not your typical swing, nor was Jeff Bagwell's and he is a HOF.

Y'all see what the pole smokers are doing up 45N? essentially wearing shorts.
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.

Yordan has been intentionally walked in his next 2 ABs since this HR. If he isn't going to get pitched to there is no point in leaving him down there

They might not get a hit all day, but defensively I'd love to see a Straw, Jake, Fisher OF, especially in a big park like this.

Some of us keep telling y'all it might not be as soon as you think.

Ha, just messing with you.

But the organization definitely is gun shy after Tucker last year.

Is that legit? Website says pretty much everything 90% off. My assumption is no
