Sorry if already discussed. I hope Justin was sent home early so he could sleep in his own bed tonight. Not sure what the normal protocol is on this for starting pitchers traveling the day before a start, especially a ridiculous travel schedule like tonight.

I am sure JV does what he wants and knows how he needs to prepare.

My guess is he stayed with the team, he doesn't pitch until 7pm tonight, which means he's not at the ballpark until the middle of the afternoon. I assume these guys are night owls since their not home before 11 or 12 on a regular night.

Wasn't there a report yesterday that said he was already back in Houston?

Yeah I'd think he flew back early.

I don't expect much from the team tonight. Getting back around 5-6 am then not being home until 7 am then being back at the park this afternoon for a 7 pm start.

That's rough

They'll be fine, you guys are dramatic.

its not an ideal travel schedule, but some of you are making it out to be a much bigger deal than it is.

It is ridiculous. It is the exact reason they have Day games. Get home at 7AM versus get home at 1AM.

JV has said that he sleeps 12 hours to allow the body to recuperate, Bergman too if I recall the article correctly. Regular season is brutal on the body and screwing up one night of sleep really messes you up for a few days.

Hell, I'm tired just from staying up to watch them the last 4 nights and I go to sleep right at the end of the game, if not before.

I get they are professionals and all that, but I fly overnight to South America a few times a year and it messes you up for a couple days.

Good thing JV checks this thread so he can know how to prepare for a game properly
BMX Bandit

flying commercial to South America sounds similar to a 3 hour charter from LA

again, not ideal travel, but far from being something that is going to take days to recover from.

Wouldn't be surprised. Cole did this earlier in the year to make sure he was rested.

No not days but don't be surprised if they come out flat and lay an egg tonight.

What sucks is there is no logical reason for it. It's an easy fix..Just move yesterday's game to 3 pm.

And add on the fact that we got shafted out of an extra day's rest during the ASB since we played Thurs.

None of it makes any sense

Hinch confirmed Verlander left early.


Ag_07: I agree it could have easily been avoided, and i don't buy the "too much traffic in LA for afternoon game" line.

im sure JV is feelin fine nestled between Kate's uptons this morning ready to come out firing. Our guys may be tired, but the mighty Yordan will come out and singlehandedly teabag the rangers by lasering hate-rockets into the outfield and over the wall while sprayfarting on Odor as he rounds the bases.

From ESPN:
Quote:

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Justin Verlander flew back to Houston early ahead of his scheduled start against the Rangers on Friday.

Very weird and specific trash talk. I like it.

Hate Rockets is the official term of Yordan homerun's. Great job.

5 K's on only 19 strikes is really hard to do. 6 walks on the other 27 pitches is equally difficult to pull off. Either way he was unhittable.

46 pitches in 2.2 including 6 walks is rough.

You can have all the stuff you want but if you can't dial it in it's pointless.

Motion to amend to hate missiles with Yordan being the Cuban missile launcher.
