This team needs another big bat. We didn't get one in the off season we better get one in the next month or so.

I have a potential solution, boys and girls. The two games we have won, I've been off of work. I have also worked each day we've lost. I'm off Friday-Sunday. If we sweep Oakland, I'll do the math with the remaining schedule and my work calendar, then post the gofundme link. I'm happy to still work on the team's off days, and that will be taken into consideration.

Any postgame comments yet from the clubhouse? Really wishing this ump gets blasted and mlb will do something about it. Blum eloquently made a comment about the integrity of the game earlier while trying to bite his tongue.

Hinch - We're still a good team, we need to play better.

Understatement. Haha.

I appreciate the honesty though.

In reality, if the top 4 to 5 guys are hitting, the offense will be more than fine.

it's early...but


the team batting avg's of the AL teams is awful. The best hitting team in the AL is hitting .265 which would rank about 6th in the NL.

The Astros are sitting around 4th in the AL in avg....the difference is runs scored, where they rank 12th and are hovering among the worst in all of baseball. The player resumes suggest they'll get going but it can't happen too soon.

I agree, it was at least refreshing to hear the teams reaction. They know they played like crap on this road trip, and have the team that can easily turn it around. And soon.

We should have picked up Nelson Cruz as a legit DH instead of running with that scrub White.

I've never had to ignore someone on the season thread before we even played at home before.

April and May are the best months for baseball because the Aggies and Astros usually aren't both struggling at the same time.

Reminds me of last season already. Everyone knew there was a problem, but the stat weenies kept explaining why our inability to hit in high leverage situations wasnt a big deal, because our OPS++WAR or whatever with the bases empty or in blowout wins was fine


Yeah. You're right. Stat weenies were wrong. Last years team sucked.

If this was the NFL, we'd be a little over midway through the 2nd quartet of the first game.

They'll be fine.

Didn't get to watch the game but this BS is unacceptable by Kulpa...and kudos to Max for not knocking him the **** out.

What do people expect though? They will protect their own and have a union. Nothing will come from what happened tonight

Reminds me of a story AJ Pierzynski told one time about getting thrown out of a game while catching. After the ump missed multiple pitches, he turned to the ump and asked for another ball, "preferably one he could see". He got promptly tossed.

He won't unless the media jumps on it. This type of thing should be blasted out to every on-air personality. Almost makes me want to sign up for Twitter.

So was Cole. He stated it wasn't so much the strike zone that he took issue with and he wouldn't discuss it further.

Apparently at one point during the start of an inning Kulpa was late getting out on the field and cut Cole's warm-up short. That coupled with him basically standing over the plate while he warmed up another inning is probably what pissed Cole off.

Hinch was restrained but a little more passive-aggressive. He stated it could've been handled differently but that wasn't up to him. Kulpa was man in charge and he handled it how he wanted to handle it. He'll defer it to the league and move on. Said that regardless team has to play better.

What the hell was that crap? Does that umpire have a history of acting like an ass? Completely unprofessional.
