I just expect those to be caught at this point. Doesn't make it any less amazing.

great to see this "opener" thing backfire on the Mariners.

LeBlanc has been terrific in relief. About to finish 8 innings

This guy crushed us tonight. 1 run due to spectacular mental error.

Thanks Scott for the 1st inning.

No kidding. Why do teams even do that? Leblanc has been nails, they'd be winning this game if he'd have started.

Pressly has been getting lit up lately. Not great to see. Just a couple of long outs tonight at least

He's also been worked a ton. I think he needs a tad bit of a rest.

it's crazy...the 'stros win again...when based upon the AAA lineup it looks like they're trying to concede the game (almost)

Really. The Astro's recent wins make no sense. We all know that Hinch is really, really good at his job, but this is almost ridiculous.

Astros are now a crazy 39-15 since the first week of the season.

And 18-5 since Altuve went on the shelf, according to the broadcast.

Is Altuve dead? I hate this radio silence from the club about injuries.

He went through drills on the field before the game Monday. Sounds like he and Springer will be back in the next few weeks.

No reason to rush those guys when AAA is getting it done. Let them heal

Outstanding college player. Grandfather played SS in the bigs for 16 years, mostly with the Cubs.

If the Astros were in the NBA they would be accused of trying to tank to get a better draft pick, and failing.

It's just like last year. He was out for a couple months but any update they gave was that he was doing drills, hitting, and feeling good. Which was all bull.

Exactly. Some of you guys are nuts. You can't infer anything from this. It's like you WANT there to be drama or some secret domestic dispute reason for Correa's injury or something more than it is.

A second round draft pick (#68 overall) doesn't mean anything about resigning your former #1 overall with several ASG appearances. SS is typically your best infield athlete on a college team. You keep your farm stocked at every position.


The reason people want a secret reason for the injury is because they want to resign him. If it just turns out he is super fragile (that's Italian) then we almost certianly will not spend huge dollars on a guy that gets just 100 games a year. If his wife clocked him with a bat or he fell down the stairs while she was trying something she saw in Karma Sutra that lessons the worry.

He was the Yankees daddy for a while. It'll be weird to see him shaved and in pinstripes. I have a feeling he won't fair to well with the fans and media there.

I'm not like yall. I enjoyed Dallas while he was an Astro. He's probably one of the best Astros pitchers of all time (in an Astro uni). If he signed with NYY then he's the enemy, and I want him to fail. But I'm not rooting for extra issue with media and fans. I just expect them based on the personalities.
