At this pace, going to give Mike Gallo a run for his money for king of baseball's three true outcomes...12 of his 17 plate appearance are walk, strikeout or home run.


And Joey Gallo too

Kemp just robbed Jake of a spectacular catch.

I was just about to say...Mike Gallo? The BP pitcher we had back during the 04 and 05 runs?

Are fans really giving Cavan a standing ovation for crushing a double and breaking up a shutout?

WTF?

I'm surprised there's not more complaining about it taking luhnow so long to bring him up hahaha


There was more than enough complaining. Just wait till Hinch sits him for a day.
Hinch better not sit him in Cincinnati --- that's a mega-bandbox
I thought it was mentioned on tv the other night that Hinch said he will play the OF in 2 of those games.

Hits the ball and before taking a step is back to chewing the gum

Alvarez has scared White into hitting like a real player the last week.

I just had a happy ending thinking about a lineup of Springer, Altuve, Bregman, Alvarez and Correa. And that leaves Brantley hitting 6th. Hilarious.

Please everyone get healthy so we can see that.

Jake leaves the game and it didn't look good.

Looked like he was crying as he walked back down the steps.

Have we seen him pull a ball to left field? Opposite field bombs are cool. If he got the bat head out front would the ball be hit so hard and so far that it would defy the laws of physics?

His single was a 114 mph piss missile to RF.

When Altuve gets back in the lineup it would be cool to see him right before Alvarez. Smallest guy on team (righty) then biggest guy on the team (lefty), but I doubt it happens.

Kind of fond of this lineup

Springer (righty) CF
Brantley (lefty) DH/1B
Bregman (righty) 3B
Altuve (righty) 2B
Alvarez (lefty) DH/1B
Correa (righty) SS
Tucker (lefty) LF
Chirinos (righty) C
Reddick (lefty) RF

Good lord that's an incredible lineup

he hasn't homered on a fastball yet either. One of those might go 500 ft

that's what I was thinking too --- Tucker time

Would love to see Tucker in there to give Air Yordan some protection

We may end up with a lineup of Fisher, Straw, Mayfield, Stubbs, Alvarez and Tucker mixed in with Kemp, White and Bregman.

That is a little much, but Biggio is probably the most beloved Astro of all time.

We're cruising to a big win. It shouldn't effect the outcome.


Totally this. The kid grew up under this roof, his dad is Astos royalty, and we have a comfortable lead.

I think its classy.

I'm going out on a limb but Yordan will break Bonds single season HR record by age 25.

Cheering for biggio is what baseball fans that appreciate the game do. Any other reaction would be expected in Arlington.

I think the B-G-O was a bit much and personally I hope he goes 0-4 with four Ks every time he plays us but I'm not trying to hate anyone for cheering for him in a blowout.

Hurt something in his hip or leg between the no man's land flyball and running to first.
