Seems like pretty lol timing to ***** about run production after they scored like a million runs the past 2 games.

When earlier today you called for 30 runs this series because we are at full strength now & they are the lowly Orioles I wanted to reply, "that's not always the way it works," but didn't want to kill the buzz.

We may very well score 27 runs this weekend, but even the worst teams win 1 outta 3 on average and even the best teams crap the bed. Not a lot of fireworks, but solid pitching & I'm always happy scoring 1 more run than the other guys.

Some of you guys take any comment as criticizing the team or cliff jumping.

It's not out of left field to point out that this team CAN be frustratingly inconsistent at times, especially with RISP. I'm not saying it's going to be the death of us, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't scared of ones of these popping up.

And against the Yankees, it doesn't matter who we pitch, we need to score as many runs as possible because they WILL score runs.

Yeah, and they just scored 2 runs against the hapless BJs.

That's baseball, homie. Just enjoy the Ws.

Yankees see these pitchers 19 times. It always helps a hitter to see a pitcher over and over again

Or they won't. Which they do a lot. Because BASEBALL.

Also, they will be facing OUR pitching. Not the O's.

Every team has games where they flail with RISP and games where they get locked in.

Every Team. All of them. Since the beginning of baseball. That's how baseball works. The only reason you or anyone else is under the impression that we are more streaky then anyone else is because you dont watch 162 games a year of the other teams.

Don't want to hear Greinke *****ing about the shift anymore.


The shift is probably a lot better for power pitchers like Osuna, not slow contact pitchers like Grienke.

A little concerned about a Pressly. Isn't he normally a 98 mph fastball pitcher?

He only got to around 95 tonight and hardly threw it

Offensive nights like these are what are going to give me nightmares come playoff time. We tend to team slump randomly, and it's not even usually against good pitching.
So the trick to beating the Astros in a 7 game series is to pitch backwards with the worst arm on the staff? That would be a fun experiment.

What *****ing has Grienke done about the shift? Since he's been in Houston?

7 in a row. Just checking in for my daily dose of "reality" and why I shouldn't be happy about another win. Really impressed with the guy who wants the hitting coach to walk home after today's game after the team scored a run in 11 out of 16 innings last series

Checked in... and we're complaining about a one-run win? Come on boys, pace yourselves. It's ok.

Enjoy the ride. This season is MAGICAL. Sniff some mushrooms or something. Damn.

Just enjoy the win and Altuve doing Altuve things. Game saving RBI stand up triple. Clutch!

Good thing about the Astros winning is it bring more posters out to join in on the discussion. Bad thing about Astros winning is it is brings a lot of people who don't know **** about baseball to join in on the discussion.


Just because the team is an offensive power doesn't mean they will score ten runs every game, even if you're playing a bottom dweller. The good guys won. That's what matters.

I think I've posted in this thread like 10 times this year, because people such as yourself tend to overreact to small sample sizes and pile on people who point out that 162 games allows for a ton of variance. Tonight was one ****ing baseball game. One that they actually won. Don't quote me and call me out when I wasn't even responding to you in the first place. Also, maybe think about sample sizes before you post your dumb ass, half-baked rants.

Didn't we just score 25 runs in 2 games against the Rockies?

Really. I don't care if we win the Sat & Sun games by 1-0 scores. Who cares? W's are W's.

D-backs tie it up with LA with 2 runs top 9th.

For all of you who are worried about Press, Osuna or Will, go take a gander at what Kenley Jensen has done for LA this year.

We could be much worse off.

D-Backs take the lead 3-2 heading into the bottom of the 11th.

Great fireworks at the end of the dodgers d-backs game. Benches clear after the last out. D-backs closer screaming at dodgers bench. Dave Roberts going nuts on the d-backs SP. Should be an interesting couple of games upcoming.
