Did they ever replace the windscreen at Globe Life or is there still a jet stream blowing out?

Maybe one of the lurking Arlington fans can answer this.

I don't know if there's an advanced stat for this, but we have to lead the MLB in giving back a lead the following half inning after taking it


I ran the numbers last night. Homers allowed as a percentage of total hits allowed, the Astros are worst in all of baseball. If it's hit in play, almost 21% leave the park. Stunning given that the Astros actually allow very few hits.

The Astros pitching is in a bad way lately, just embarrassing to watch.

Trying to increase his total K's. It's the only stat he can increase, so might as well go for it.

What is going on? Is the pitching staff gassed? We are just off a break and there are no off days ahead to recover.

I used to think Hinch was doing the same thing with White that he did with Bregman. Keep him in there and at the plate until he got going.
I can think of no reason now. It just doesn't make sense.

One more week and he's done. By then we'll have Carlos and Aledmys back and there will be nowhere to put Tyler

So apparently our pitching staff is throwing batting practice for the Rangers.

I'm going to predict that this is weekend is last time White will face the Rangers as an Astro. I think Diaz will be back at the next home stand next Friday.

I think we miss having McCann around to help gameplan for how to face guys, either that or losing some of our analytics / scouting guys is starting to show.

Yuli reads TexAgs. He didn't like being called "old".

Wasn't straw on base like 3 times last night? I think I'd prefer him at short, Alex at 3rd and Yuli at 1st just to keep the whale shark out of the lineup.

Altuve swinging the bat tonight.

Minor looks shaky

Altuve is overpaid. Needed 4 pitches to hit that double.

/whoever that guy was last night

Yuli is a natural 3B in Cuba. He plays it pretty good.

Me, and yeah still think he is overpaid, but concede the two good at bats today.

I would not be surprised if Correa is used as trade bait this offseason for a major arm. I think the front office is grooming Straw to take over at SS and I could see it happening before Correa leaves in free agency.

Does everybody think it is a foregone conclusion that Bregs moves to SS?

I know I'm in the minority, but they should use Straw for trade instead of Correa.
