Is anybody pitching good for us lately?
Pressly Miley and Collin, that's pretty much it. Hinch only gave Pressly 2 outs and never went to McHugh which cost us the game in the end

More proof that Ks are a worthless stat

Pitching needs to make adjustments. Inexcusable how many runs scored on 0-2 counts

They better get another starter. Will obviously have to give up something good though.

They aren't going to be able to afford all their star salaries anyway...not in the Houston market...thinking Correa is the most expendable. He can't stay on the field anyway. Trade him and get an arm.

I know I got carried away with Hinch last night, but he has made some real poor decisions lately IMO

4 home runs with 2 strikes (3 on 0-2 counts) and the game winning hit on an 0-2 count

This lose was on Cole. Can't give up a million homers on 0-2 counts. Just Trash.

I have a bad feeling Joe Smith is going to come back and become Rondon 2.0

He never pitched well last season

9 of the 19 hits tonight in the game were HR. Like JV said the other day, I hate knowing that anyone in the lineup has the potential to go deep at anytime (ie. Tim Federowicz). Oh well, lets end the series with a W and springboard into the next one.

That is garbage. Worst loss in a few years. The bullpen got torched - Harris, Rondon, and Osuna - gave up 5 runs in their combined 2 IP.

If we have a lead heading to the pen with 3 innings to go, give me:

7th - McHugh
8th - Osuna
9th - Pressly

Cole gave up too many homruns, too. It was a complete pitching staff FAIL tonight.

On paper this sounds good but he has been the Correa of the pitching staff. Sky is the limit but he's made of glass.

Hate the rangers. Makes this loss even harder to swallow.

Curious who continues to call for the fastball on 0-2???

It's killed JV his last few starts too.

I realize they want to minimize pitch counts but not at the expense of dingers

Osuna is our closer for the rest of the season unless he goes full Giles

I'm not worried about dropping two to the Rangers in July with half our stars injured.

I'm worried half our stars are injured and there appears to be no sense of urgency in the front office to deal prospects for MLB talent to fix the couple of flaws this team has.

Lol. We are getting rid of Chirinos AND Correa now.

Burn it all down and rebuild. God some of you are insufferable when we lose.

4 run lead in the 7th should be game over with the backend of this bullpen, every time.

That is the key word. Guarantee they are talking to people behind the scenes. Something will happen within the next few weeks. Its not like all of the other teams are slinging players around right now.

I'm only a casual fan, but knowing that LM wasn't coming back this year, why didn't we go after Dallas Keuchel harder?

Keuchel and his agent demanded way too much money. Morton was more attainable.

Love George, but Jake gets that ball.


Love that Jake is appealing the 2 game suspension when he hasn't played the last 2 games. Seems like the smarter play would be to just take the suspension

Exactly

Just like when they shelled Cole in his last start in Arlington and had a bad series.

We look like a tired team and we are just off the all-star break. From Framber not getting out of the 1st inning last night to the all-around bullpen meltdown tonight, I'm definitely concerned about the pitching staff. We definitely have 4 better starters than Framber (once Peacock is back) but we have to find someone that can give us some innings in the 5th spot. I don't understand why Framber stayed up and Sneed was sent down.

I'm guessing Jake is suspended without pay? Maybe that's why he's appealing? So he can get that money back
