I don't understand why AJ burned McHugh yesterday and didn't start him today


I was certain he was going to start today or Tuesday. I'm not sure of the strategy. Did anyone ask in the presser after yesterday's game?

What the hell is Framber doing with that ground ball?

All those guys left on base come back to haunt us.

Hinch seems to be ok losing this game to save relievers.

Injuries are really, really, really, really, really annoying.

This is why I hate the opener approach. It's lipstick on a pig

You're still depending on a crappy pitcher to carry the load and firing the James bullet to start puts you in a tougher spot to begin with.

It's dumb
yep x 1,000

Goodnight Gracie, btw leave Framber out there the whole game.

The fact that Hinch has let him go this long really does make it seem like he's just forfeiting this one to save arms

Looking at Urkeeding and man it would be nice if he would get some outs off the bat. His BABIP against is .545 (that has to go down)... but his K and walk rates are good.

Man it would be nice if things would start to click for him a little.

Blummer is getting irritated.

...or put White on the mound. Both would suck equally.

A 3 man rotation is going to kill this team. We have to get a mediocre MLB starter here before we do this again.

And why did we start of the 2nd half with Framber in game 1? That makes no sense.

and Luhnow deserves plenty of blame too.

this is what happens when you have a bench full of guys out of options

This is what I don't get about Hinch

Why does he keep doing the same thing expecting a different result this far into the season?

White and Valdez are NOT WORKING

What was wrong with Sneed or McHugh???

Framber has no clue where the ball is going to end up.

I'm getting awfully tired of Hinch's auto conceded games. I haven't talked trash about him since his management of the pitching staff in the 2017 playoffs, but this **** is getting awfully annoying. Can't imagine our starting fielders are glad they work their ass off while their coach just throws games away.

Ok... I'm cautiously buying Uriquidy. I think that kid is going to help us down the stretch a little bit.

Would be nice if it was in his next start.

Should see the shark pitch last 2 innings

I've come to the realization that although it's cool to have your guy start the ASG it's pointless and a waste of a start. Wish JV would've said no.

It's one inning of an exhibition game and because of that he was bumped to the end of the line.

Y'all act like Hinch is the issue here. The man has 0 good options currently. You've gotta hope Valdez can get out of the inning otherwise you've got no pitchers for tomorrow. It's a 162 game season, you can't pitch it like game 7 like some of y'all would like.

I know it probably wasn't, but I'm hoping that was the last pitch Framber Valdez ever throws in an Astros uniform

Framber sucks, but the weather is beautiful in Anaheim. Hope the bats can find a way to pull this out.

He may not have good options but he has different options that may work better

Why not try them? If they don't work out, then at least you know.

We have plenty of evidence this season on Valdez

He had McHugh yesterday. Save him for today and have James ready to go if he gets in trouble.

Framber just came off a game where even Odor owned him. That's extremely bad and indicative of being just flat bad. Any thought that he could make an appearance without giving up a minimum of 3 runs is a really really stupid thought.

This x1000

Really hurts not having those spots when the injuries start to pile up. Especially when one doesn't have but one defensive position and is woefully bad offensively.

So today should have been McHugh starting and tomorrow should have been Sneed.

As we do for McHugh.

Dude sucks as a starter and is exponentially better out of the pen.

Glad they've pulled the plug on him as a starter.
