Bregman didn't get his job done that AB. He needed to at least move Straw to 3rd.

Actually, there were a couple of failures that inning.

This is why you have to score runs with men on in the 1st and 2nd...

Please just win 1 of 4 this weekend. This series came at the exact worst time

I don't like it, but you gotta tip your cap to Sanchez. That was a pretty good pitch.

Time to test Sanchez for PED's. The difference between this year and last year is insane. Nobody develops that much in one offseason.

Some may say the same about Bregman.

So right now we'll be lucky if Peacock makes it through 5.

I hope Luhnow goes out and gets a top end starter. This having 3 guys who can't get past the 5th inning is frustrating as fck.

Nice knock Jake.

Not sure why you have such a boner about giving guys credit for runs scored, but isn't it crazy what happens when the guys behind him get hits?

Bregman Did what he did in his 1st full season.

Sanchez has played multiple seasons as an average at best power hitter who was an easy out in the playoffs. Now he has 25 HR's and 52 RBI's in June.

The comparison you made is awful.

Don't have a boner about giving guys credit for runs scored, just for White not doing anything in the area of scoring runs or bringing runs in with his bat. Kemp has probably tripled or even quadrupled white in runs scored and RBIs this season and they hit in similar spots in the lineup

Edit: after checking numbers the triple or quadruple estimate is off. It's 35 to 24 in favor of Kemp in 32 fewer plate appearances

Kemp is hitting .154 w RISP (32 PA, 8 RBI)

White is hitting .156 w RISP (40 PA, 8 RBI)

They have been equally awful.

where are you getting this take?

sanchez had 53 games in 2016. had 20hr, 42 rbi.

2017: 122 games, 33hr, 90 rbi

2018: 89 games, 18hr, 53 rbi

only trend i see is this is consistent with past years. last year was his down year. he came onto the scene slugging the ball.

Bregman
Year PA HR PA/HR
2016 216 8 27
2017 626 19 32.9
2018 705 31 22.7
2019 330 21 15.71


Sanchez
Year PA HR PA/HR
2016 229 20 11.45
2017 525 33 15.9
2018 374 18 20.8
2019 231 22 10.5

Bregman has shown a far more drastic increase since he came into the league. Sanchez started out slugging from the get-go.

ETA: Bregman gain between 2017 WS and 2018 spring training.

Kemp & White have both been terrible, but R & RBI are useless stats to compare one hitter to another.

Disappointed Alvarez didn't really run out that slow grounder. One of the great things about the Astros is they Never are caught not going all out. He had a shot to beat it.

Watching this offense right now is extremely frustrating. Too many LOB.

No clutch hits.

As a rookie he should be hustling every ball in play. Seen plenty of the vets jogging on routine GOs though. That's one thing I like about Reddick he always seems to be hustling down the line and gets pissed on close plays when he thinks he should have beat it.

You are correct. Let's dump both, trade for a power hitting 1st baseman and bring up Tucker

Nice inning by Peacock. Now, to get the offense to wake up from its slumber.

Peacock outlasted Paxton, didn't see that one coming in the 2nd/3rd

And Reddick almost always squeezes fly outs with 2 hands. My nephew gets sick of hearing me tell him, see, see, the best use both hands!
