You mean you didn't like how it just defaulted to the American League team every year?

It seemed to default to the league the Astros played in

Probably because he had no idea what you were talking about. Or didn't hear you.

You should really share your Tyler White love with them.

Now that's he's not an Astro I'm pretty indifferent about him. I also don't think he will last much longer on the Dodgers roster. They aren't using him at all and they gave us a player they were going to lose in the rule 5 draft. So he's essentially an emergency situation guy for an extra innings game. Those guys get dropped like bad habits

Yeah. Short of a major injury there is no way White sniffs a playoff roster spot. He will get the offseason to drop some weight and make a camp somewhere as a non roster invitee. It's up to him to drop the weight.

Its complete BS that coloradans think all texans fit a stereotype.

Consider this.......if the Astros or the Dodgers win the WS Tyler White gets a WS ring.

On one hand, Tucker has to feel pretty good that Houston values him so much. On the other hand, he probably (obviously) really wants another crack in the bigs. What's it gonna take to get him up this year? When do rosters expand?

I'm just befuddled by this whole "we won't trade because they won't trade Tucker" line. Toronto just gave up Stroman and cash for a A and AA pitcher. Clearly you don't have to get a #1 in return.

Yeah, it's ridiculous. It's a side-effect of being good and having a good history of successful trades. But for some reason the Yankees get players for a bucket of balls and a 30-year old A-ball lotto ticket.

No one wants to get shown up or fleeced by Luhnow. So they demand the world knowing we won't budge. Then accept much less and cut off their nose to spite their face. Hell, the Mets admitted as much this week.

I'd do that Greinke deal. Couple of notes.
1) That would mean we wouldn't resign Cole.
2)A rotation with Verlander, Cole and Greinke would be stupid sick.
3) Greinke has a better bat than Tyler White. I think you would gameplan to have Greinke pitch when we're at Dodger Stadium.

100% this. I do believe that Luhnow and the Astros have such a reputation many front offices have a feeling they will lose the trade no matter what so they refuse to deal unless its for the bonafide studs.

The Brady Aiken thing still rings so much in my head. So many front offices would have signed him just to save face for drafting him.

So anytime you trade with the Astros you have to catch yourself wondering "why are they getting rid of this guy?"

Braves game on here at the gym and just caught my first glimpse of Keuchel in their uniform and it weirded me out.
Watched a little of that. He pitched a pretty good solid game but came out with 2 men on in the sixth and then the reliever eventually gave up a grand slam.

He's still a solid pitcher, but definitely no better than Miley. It's not my money so it's easy for me to say it would have been nice to have had him on the team this year but I'm hopeful we can pick up someone better in the next 48 hours.

Keuchel gives up 6 hits & 4 earned in 5+ innings.

ERA up to 3.86.

on the hook for the loss unless the Braves rally

Totally acceptable question.

The funny thing is when you Google "when do mlb rosters expand?" it gives you a quote about the 25 man roster having been in place for 100 years... which is way too much of a coincidence & makes me think Mr. baseball over here had to Google it to make sure before he gave you his smart ass answer.

Out of all the Ags out there, none of us have infiltrated the Astros' front office, apparently. At least not one that posts on TexAgs. Disappointing.
One of you should have at least made a sock and posted Rojo-esque or Q anon type messages.

Something like:

No more venom. Currency.
Maroon tommy bird flies.

I'm not so sure someone doesn't work for the Astros on TexAgs, exhibit A



To my knowledge, Jake from rake farm wearing his khakis started here as well and made its way to Blummer

Poor Rondon with only 372 likes vs Altuve with 70,000+ likes

And please don't tell me they ran down to Venezuela for an off day, doesn't seem feasible.

Luhnow could make my pants expand in the next 48 hours if he pulls off a trade for Thor with no Tucker or Whitley.
