Is it just m or is Devo starting to get it back together?
He has been pretty solid for about a month. I would rather have him doing his bed-$4itting early in the season as opposed to his usual hot start & late season crash.

another great win tonight.

the schedule finally turns friendly for the next 2 weeks....4 bad teams coming up. Time to stretch out the W-L record even more

oh my, the Rays stroll into Fenway and sweep the Red Sox. It seemed like Boston was making their move up the standings. Suddenly with a 4-game losing streak heading to New York

Time to put the hammer down. Locking down home field for all of the playoffs should be the priority

Nice win, some great fielding and timely hitting...Cole wasn't himself but 1 run in 7 innings is fantastic even if it took some fielding gems.

Schedule eases up in August and we shouldn't have to throw anymore AAA arms from here on out. Finish strong and aim for home field.

Just flipped to MLB Network....Dodgers v Padres. Bellinger hits a homer. Dodgers beat record in baseball...5 hole hitter must be a monster.....nope some tubby named Tyler....proceeds to hit a week grounder to third. Can't wait for the World Series.

I bet he's back for October
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

and these next 2 weeks vs. the Mariners, Rockies, Blue Jays, and White Sox...

are also where the pitchers & hitters can fatten up their stats and make big moves toward a 20-win season or 30-HR plateau or 100-RBI mark and such. Pretty up the back of their baseball card so to speak

so the Astros just have a 3-player bench right now?

Jake, Diaz, and Machete

Grienke is also going to DH some

Yep, but he'll be back in a month, hopefully for good.

Playing time is going to be tough to come by for Straw right now. Best to get him some regular playing time over the next month or so.

More interesting question is who goes when Pressly and Peacock return.

one good thing about a 3-person bench...more Yordan.

won't see him subbed out as much. Gotta save the pinch runner for the catcher spot

Rondon for sure. Devo still has options that we can use but he's pitching well lately. Maybe McHugh if he can't get his ish together. They can milk James' rehab until Sept.

Fisher did, so you're likely right

52 games remain this season

10 vs LAA
9 vs SEA
4 vs DET
3 vs TOR
3 vs KC
3 vs BAL
3 vs CWS
2 vs COL
2 vs TOR

That's 39 of the 52. The remaining 13 vs teams with an actual pulse.

8 vs OAK
2 vs MIL
3 vs TB

Thoughts on potential final record? 34-18 the rest of the way gets the franchise record in wins.

We were basically winning 2/3s of the time with a difficult schedule before Yordan and all of our guys were healthy, let alone after trading for Grienke and our other two pitching additions.

I think we take the season record.

Fangraphs has us projected at 104-58. Given the teams we play the rest of the way that seems fair. I will say 106-56. I think this team doesn't take their foot off the pedal.

I just want to finish ahead of LA. If that's 98 or 108 I'm in for home field.

More interesting question is who goes when Pressly and Peacock return.

Sneed goes down when The first of Peacock/Pressly comes back. Also likely that someone else will pick up a small "ding" before both come back. They'll get creative to get us to roster expansion on Sept 1 - Pressly and Peacock will take longer to come back than normal and/or someone that picks up a small ding will just go to the IL to buy us a roster spot.
