Why does Correa keep having to "clear the air" on this rib thing? Do people think he went sky diving or something?

He cheated on his wife and she swung his bat straight into his ribs.

Because he's been dodging the media since it happened.

He released a statement through the team and his wife did a YouTube video on her channel. He has yet to answer questions from the media.

And yes. No one really thinks a massage broke his rib.

Corbin Martin has his first start since being sent down to Round Rock. 3IP, 7 H, 2 BB, 4 ER, 2 SO. Not good.

Maybe it was a Robert Kraft type massage and this is all code. He "won't be using that masseuse again" and all that.

Apparently David Ortiz was shot in the leg in the Dominican Republic... Not Astros related, but worth posting.

MadBum getting told "if you dont want me to watch the ball, go fish it out of the ocean" is my favorite non Astros related baseball story today.

he's mega-frustrated.

but MadBum and the Giants are paying the price for being in payroll prison. SF has been bad for 3 years now due to an unwillingness to let some of their WS stars go and/or not reading the tea leaves correctly on numerous 30-something ballplayers (e.g. Longoria and Cueto). Those contracts are horrendous

Muncy didn't even do anything outrageous.

Agreed, no bat flip, a couple steps walk to look at it and then go...MadBum needs to get his panties out of a wad

Too early to say that Air Yordan is the 2nd coming of David Ortiz?

Exactly. Pimp your homer all you want and pitchers pimp a big strikeout all you want. The more emotion and passion the better.

But like MadBum said...If we're gonna let the kids be kids and let em play then let him be an old fart and be mad about it.

I don't care. I like the emotion and the LA/SF rivalry getting salty again.

I tend to not believe the massage story, but at the same time, is that really the best he could come up with? It's such a stupid story that I almost believe it.

I know right. He should have said he was washing his truck.

Well except in this situation Bum is the little bitty child throwing a hissy fit, not the old man. He didn't yell "you're wearing the next one" or some other kind of smack talk. He cried.

I don't see it that way.

I see it as emotion. If we're ok with batters showing emotion why are we bashing MadBum for showing emotion?

He didn't like it and let Muncy know. Muncy fired back with the kill shot and it was over. All good

Also be a man, stare down Muncy and smoke him in the back with a 4 seam fastball the next time he bats. Then let's the punches land where they may. The game regulates itself. Muncy takes his homer and a bruise you get the last word and a suspension. Don't whine at the guy

No body cares if anyone shows emotion. Its encouraged. He got served. The funny part was him being a ***** about it during the game and then again after the game. If he was truly what he claims to be he would have STFU after the game and told reporters it was left between the lines. But he didnt. He cried to muncy and then after the game he cried about baseball as a whole changing while he is old and washed. It's a bad look for a "tough guy".

MadBum picked a bad spot to "make a point". That was hardly an over-the-top, showing up the pitcher celebration. He did about the smallest bat flip you can do, walked 3 steps and then started jogging around the bases. He didn't stand and admire, he didn't walk half way to first, he didn't do anything that I would consider excessive showboating, and I'm typically against the over-the-top celebrations.

I will reserve judgment until someone can confirm that this isn't the same system that wrongly projected White's season...

I'm going to bet he doesn't get to 2 SB


Bc you can't steal bases when you're mashing them over the fence

Watching MLB central and they just showed a stat for highest batting average on fastballs. (min 50 PA)

Mitch Garver .453
James McCann .444
Bryan Reynolds .400
David Fletcher .400
Joey Gallo .392

Curious what some of the Astros numbers are
