Are there any minor league arms worth calling up n the Astros farm system?


No. We need McHugh and Smith back sooner rather than later.

Rehab update: Altuve has a single and a GIDP. Stassi hit a 2 run HR as well.

I realize AAA astros are playing at a .700 clip but I am so ready for MLB Astros again even if they can't improve that win %. I just want that 4-5 run deficit comeback ability.

I don't want stassi back......
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.

Altuve doesn't have his swing yet. 1-2 with a walk. Scored twice. Stassi 2 run shot and a sac fly.

Stassi is 2-3 with a walk and a homer. But he has been sheet behind the plate. Mishandled multiple balls.

Could be total unfamiliarity with the staff and vice versa.

**** you Seattle. I guess you should be used to being the Yankees' *****.

So Seattle didn't want prospects as much as cash? I wonder if they are having cash flow problems.

apparently the humidor was turned off at Coors Field this weekend.

according to MLB...the Padres and Rockies set a major league record for runs scored in a 4-game series.

the scores from the weekend: 9-6, 16-12, 14-8, and 14-13 = 92 total runs

team ERA's took a beating

Some on here were saying there was no room for Encarnacion, but we still have nothing at 1b.

Like the Yankees just showed, there is ALWAYS room for a hitter like EE, especially when he only costs a lottery ticket prospect and cash.

Agreed. Glad to hear we were involved. Need to be looking at alternatives to Yuli/White.

How Perez is still on the roster this morning is baffling.

The problem is that our AAA pitching right now is wooooof. I don't even know who we'd call up if we sent him down. Rodgers and Guduan just aren't good. Martin isn't ready and needs to be throwing every fifth day until he is. Who knows what's up with Whitley.

We really need to get healthy. Get McHugh and Smith back. If we need supplemental arms, I have alot more confidence in the organization finding an undervalued reliever via trade or waiver wire pickup than I do in them transitioning any of our AAA pitchers to the bigs.

And Miley, Verlander, Cole against Cincy seems like overkill.

Weather may play havoc with this series.

60% rain increasing to 70% tonight...area under a flood watch now.

Tomorrow, 80% during the day, decreasing to 30% tomorrow night.

Wednesday, 60% during the day increasing to 80% in the evening.


My guess is if that all pans out though, they would try to at least get in 2 of the games at all costs. Obviously, we are not scheduled to go back to Cincinnati this season so they'd have to find a common off day and would want to avoid a doubleheader on that day at all costs since it would already be a travel nightmare.

I saw Cionel Perez at a grocery store outside the loop yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn't want to be a ****** and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.
He said, "Oh, like you're doing now?"
I was taken aback, and all I could say was "Huh?" but he kept cutting me off and going "huh? huh? huh?" and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.
The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like "Sir, you need to pay for those first." At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.
When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually "to prevent any electrical infetterence," and then turned around and winked at me. I don't even think that's a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

You sure it was him?

Because to be fair he looks like just about any random Mezcun you'd encounter trying to steal candy bars from a grocery store.

Did you also get approached by Devante Harris for money at the Exxon on Harvey and 6?
