Anyone else starting to get mad at Altuve, Springer, and Correa? Maybe it's just the bourbon talking, but seriously, WTF are you guys doing?


Our front office is extremely careful and to not rush them back, and rightly so given the large lead we have. Not sure what there is to be angry about as it's the strategy and doesn't look like it will change

Guduan needs to go. He is awful. Why does he keep getting called up?

it may be part of a general shift in baseball...where 140 is the new 162.

as Astro fans we were used to seeing Biggio and Bagwell clock in for 162 or 161 games per season...year after year.

but now if a player plays in 140 games...it's considered a "full season" of work.

none of Springer, Altuve, or Correa crossed the 140-game barrier last year...and none of them are going to cross it this year

Without the injuries, I think they would have, especially with the way we use the DH position. But for Correa and Springer, a season without injury just doesn't happen much.

Also, this team isn't just playing 162 games per year. We played 18 extra games in 2017 and 8 extra last year. As we continue to be positioned for long playoff runs, I think you'll continue to see a slow roll out of players in spring training, and as much rest as possible during the season.

I don't see how you can be mad at any player who gets hurt going all out.

On the other hand, you can certainly be upset at a player having a very good season who breaks a rib doing something stupid on a masseuse's table.

Because he's the only lefty worth a damn on the 40-man

There's Cionel Perez but he's sportin a nice, fat 6.44 ERA in Round Rock

The lack of development or acquisition of a lefty BP arm is a huge shortcoming of the front office.

What is Francisco Liriano doing these days? Trade White for him straight up?

If CC Sabathia can be effective at 300 lbs and throwing 80 mph junk, I see no reason the White cant either.

Glad I didn't stay up for last night's train wreck.

Is White available to play first today? It was a short outing last night and not much bullpen work.

LOL at that batter's reaction. Dude will get roasted in the clubhouse, and the immediate slump in his shoulders says he knows it's coming.

White should recognize that flailing at an off speed pitch...

Looks like he was trying to hit it out of the stadium. He looked a bit out of control on that swing.

Crazy stat: Liriano is 116th on the all time strikeout list, right ahead of Ron Guidry.

Pretty good chance he ends up in the top 100. Only 124 Ks away.
