Guduan sucks but that's on Hinch. Don't care how bad Vogelbach is against lefties it's Guduan's first game back and there was no room for error

This pitching situation is proof of the lack of organizational depth for both bullpen arms and rotation arms.

Well, looking like we might get some Astros after dark tonight.

This dude is a career minor leaguer. He's the guy you bring up to eat innings when nothing is on the line. This was a boneheaded move by Hinch.

Tyler White is envious of Vogelbach's conditioning

Isn't that true of any organization?

I understand wanting to get Guduan in there tonight to save some arms, but let James get that last or or go to anyone else and then give Guduan a clean situation to start the next inning. Just so freaking stupid

I agree completely

I know we oogle about the arms down on the farm but have any of them come up and done anything worthwhile?

All the studs we have were acquired via trade. Unless I'm missing someone we haven't had a draft pick arm pan out since LMJ and he's still somewhat of a question mark.

Bases juiced in a 3 run game and we are bringing this dude in? It shows that we have very limited options to work with

I hate everything about Tyler white..... His adjustment of his batting gloves after EVERY ****IN PITCH drives me insane

time to unleash the double steal...

perfect setup

I know it sucks, but...

We have a huge lead in the division, and we're on a roll with our AAAA team. This is the perfect time to give fringe guys the opportunity to sink or swim in tough situations.

Surprised we aren't bunting Fish with the way AB is swinging it tonight
mazag08

Fisher just looks more comfortable at the plate.

I tend to agree with position players but pitchers are different.

There's no one to pick you up when you fck up when out on the mound as opposed to hitting in the lineup.

Fisher has one sac bunt in 1700 minor league at bats. That's freaking criminal

And even though he got a hit it's still freaking criminal

I was thinking this the other day. He looks more like he belongs.

whew, Fisher got it thru.

that looked like a potential GiDP ball off the bat

Wow that was very close to being an easy double play but it worked out!

Man, the amount of speed between those 3 is insanse.

I would love to see Straw-Jake-Fisher as 7-8-9

He should of at least gloved it

SEA is downright woeful defensively

But, you also have to think ahead to playoffs. The Astros don't have a situational lefty. Devo is a right-hander who would usually get those opportunities, but here's been shaky. Hinch may have been looking to see what Bad-uan had.
