good lord Rondon blows... leave his ass off the playoff roster please

He blows? He has been pretty solid all year. I forget a bullpen arm isn't allowed to give up any runs. Go back to predicting Tyler White is going to hit 30 homers again.
He still blows... thanks for playing though

I didn't get to watch the game. But the box score doesn't have him giving up a run. What did I miss?

He threw six straight balls to start his outing. Then got three outs. It was terrible.

Oh, so he put on one runner and then got out of the inning just fine. Clearly worth complaining about.

Astros have a bullpen era of 3.45. Imagine this board if we had a bullpen like Washington, who has a 6.33 era. Heads would explode.

Rightfully so because we would suck.

I don't know if anyone mentioned it, but it's going to be hard to pitch around Yordan when the Astros have Correa, Springer and Altuve all back...

Can you see a line up like:
Springer
Tuve
Bregman
Brantley
Yordan
Correa
Pina
Chorinos
And Reddick

That's a damn good lineup

It showed lower for Cole when I was there a couple weeks ago as well. Then in his next start the gun on TV was back at his regular mph

And let's not forget the Crawford Box dinger was a high fastball 6-8 inches outside that just got poked out there. It wasn't like JV left a meatball over the plate.

Cavan Biggio will be in town this weekend with Toronto. Wonder what kind of reception he will get. Extremely rare to have a hometown legend's son come to town as a visitor.

That Toronto team is going to be filthy good if they can keep that core together.

We're going on Saturday.

Any idea who is scheduled to pitch for us that day?

The days off make it up in the air. Certainly Cole tomorrow. Saturday could be Frambeer or Miley on his regular rest.

Hinch needs to stop giving Yuli lineup cred. He's not a good hitter these days. Has no business in the cleanup spot when we are banged up and arguably shouldn't be in the lineup when we get back to full strength.

After he went 3/5 with a double and HR on Tuesday, I was thinking (hoping) maybe he was starting to it sorted out at the plate. But just looked at his last 7 game stats. Nope. .219/.194/.344. He's at .258/.286/.397 on the year. Not gonna cut it.

When we get back to full strength, Diaz needs to get some looks at 1B. Or give Brantley a look at 1B and open up a slot for one of our many outfielders who can play.

James' injury putting him on the DL?

It's an off day so I got to thinking about what we would need to give up to add a starter.

I don't think we're gonna come close to an attractive enough package using White, Kemp, Fisher, Straw, Mayfield. If we want a decent #3 of a MadBum or Stroman caliber it's gonna take way more than any combo of them.

I think it's gonna take one MLB ready player, one high upside arm like Martin/Baukakus/Martes, and a lotto ticket or two. MadBum may be a different story because he's a rental and is mostly a salary dump so taking more money would lessen the prospect load.

Should be an interesting deadline because I fully expect us to make a significant move.

I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

Fisher over Mayfield?

Don't need 8 outfielders. Mayfield isn't good at the plate, but he is one of our only options at 2nd base or short stop behind Kemp and Bregman

the tired bullpen is a consequence of the Astros' slow-playing injuries and Correa's idiocy. These recent extra inning games...don't go to extras with the regular lineup
