JV without his best stuff today is really battling. Would be nice to put up some runs and get the guys at the front end of the bullpen in there after five.
third coast..

He's scuffling for sure so far, but saved himself a run by doing his job backing up 3rd.

JV just saved himself a run saving that bad throw.

Best thing about a great Astros team (other than the obvious) is I don' have to concentrate much on the inevitable terrible Sept/Oct that is likely awaiting the Texans.

Reminds me of the day in 2005 when I went to Game 4 of the NLCS and Brandon Backe pitched an amazing game to get the 'W' and John Mabry proved that he is not just the slowest MLB player of all time, but the slowest HUMAN to ever exist to not beat out this game-ending double play.




After the game, we met up with friends for dinner at a sports bar and watched the Texans suffer perhaps their most humiliating beating ever, 42-10 at Seattle on Sunday Night Football. The Texans fell to 0-5 and gave up 320 yards rushing on 42 carries with 5 TDs to Seattle. I sat there watching that crap barely even registering it. It was like watching your high school district super power playing the team that only has 31 guys on the varsity.

In the zone and a check swing and both guys call it a ball.

Definitely has to be more economical in the 4th and 5th. At 73 pitches.

73 pitches. 7 Ks through 3 innings. It's a very weird start.

Diaz needs to step out, tie his shoes, rub dirt on his gloves. Basically go full in Marwin and slow this AB down to get JV a bit more of a breather.

No one doubts his talent level, but he's missed at least 50 games injured the last 3 seasons at an age when he should be close to indestructible. That's a pretty big red flag going forward that at some point he's going to have a total breakdown and an incredible career will be cut well short.

Whether he needs better flexibility, conditioning, or just to be more aware of himself, I don't know, but they need to figure it out.

Defense not helping JV out this game. So many balls near fielders not caught
