In light of recent events I feel that there needs to be a warning or a disclaimer that people don't talk about a no hitter if one is currently being pitched. I'm a believer in the baseball gods and they aren't to be trifled with.

The 2 guys that did that were trolling the thread. Check their message history, neither one every posts in this thread or on this board.

People who have never posted on the thread all year long who come here and say "Oh look he's throwing a no hitter" in the 6th inning and then argue that there is nothing wrong with it should be flagged and staff should take action.

Starting

JV
Cole
ZG
Miley/Sanchez - don't give the other team more then 2 looks. .. at the third time around bring in Sanchez

Here is my picks w/ 8 relievers and assuming we are playing the Dodgers at the World Series

1. Sanchez -- 2+ inning
2. Peacock -- depends on his recovery .. if he healthy then yes.
3. Biagini -- so far he appears to be have good action
4. Presley -- before the IL he was having a great year. if he can pitch back in the high 90s again
5. Osuna -- I worry that he has given up a run in each of his last 3 closing .. still got the save.. he is not Giles bad but he has not been dominate.
6. Harris -- he has been our most consistent reliever and trusted for mid inning work
7. Smith -- still out on him.. need to see more film but I like what we seen so far.
8, Devo -- I had a hard time between him and James.. but James is coming off injury and really needs to work on hiding his other pitches.




Here who we leave off the World Series
Valdez -
I don't trust him in critical situation yet.
Urquidy - I have a lot of hope for him. I think he is big part of our team next year.
McHugh - (sorry but this has been a bad year for him.. his ERA of 5.52 is reason enough
Rondon -- it depends on Biagini.. if Joe does not work out.. then Rondon would be my next man up
James -- love his velocity and movement. I think he is a big part of the reason we are successful.. I can see him replacing Presley if Presley is not ready to go.
Sneed - I like for him to be season a little more.. maybe if Peacock is not ready to go.. Sneed could be a nice long inning reliever.

What I love about our bench and our team right now. We can pull out a player like Uncle Mike from the lineup and it doesn't have real negative impact because each player provide something unique. .. btw Correa is batting 5th ahead of Yuli.. I am not sure I like Chirino in the 7th hole.. would rather have Jake in that spot.. Jake can drop a bunt and move the runner if needed.

The part of the lineup at the bottom just blows my mind. The next two scheduled in the rotation after JV. That should be outlawed. At some point in the next couple of weeks some poor team is going to draw JV, ZG and Cole in a row. I pray to the Baseball Gods it's the rangerettes.

Neither here nor there, but last night's combined no-no was 30 years to the day after the Astros were on the wrong side of a MLB record...gave up 16 hits in the first inning to Cincinnati, lost 18-2.

Lost in the shuffle a bit was the fact that there was no defining no-hitter-saving play in the field...the suspense was palpable, but there was no ball put in play that I thought "Aw, ****, there it goes."

Also neither Blummer or TK even mentioned what was happening until the final out. Kudos to them.

Apparently Strom had emergency surgery last night after the game. Heard Hinch say he was resting in the hospital and that he would miss a couple of games. Intestinal something.
nvm I see it was posted above

This tweet got me thinking. Altuve has 92 hits in 76 games this season and there are 50 games remaining. Chances he reaches 150 hits?

That graphic just now is crazy. The consistency the last 3 years is just silly.

Great value dude has clearly not lost enough $ on baseball to be giving gambling advice.

I think it's easily the most difficult sport to gamble on, in an individual game at least. Even the worst teams win a third of the time and without a point spread it's suicide to bet on the underdog and not profitable enough to bet on the favorite.

Agreed. When our # 5 starter is anchoring no hitters there is no reason to think we won't win every remaining game.

Just watch on reddit mlb streams and use bilasport. I've watched no fewer than 60 games on there this year and its great.

According to most on this board he's overpaid now ... or at least was as of 2 months ago
