yes, the best record ship has just about sailed off the horizon.

the Yankees started the season 8-10. Since then NYY is 75-32.

they had a 3-8 stretch in June, but other than that no bad stretches since May 1st.

the Astros won't be able to catch them unless the Yankees play a bad 2 weeks of baseball


What is nuts about this, is they are still missing key weapons due back in September.
and Aaron Boone is getting thrown out of games about once a week nowadays along with Brett Gardner. The Yankees are taking the aggressive approach with the umps

yeesh, the Twins have pulled to within 2 games of the Astros in the loss column.

and Minnesota starts a 13-game stretch vs. the White Sox and Tigers on Monday --- cupcake city for 2 weeks

I'm frustrated as hell but I'm pretty confident that they'll get it together soon. It'll end up being a tight race for best in the AL but no matter how it shakes out, if healthy, I like our chances in the postseason.

Ole Miss road trip is the same weekend as ALCS games 6 and 7

This could present a dilemma

When we're hot, were unbeatable. When we're not, it's a crapshoot.

Will we be hot in the playoffs? Or will we be first pitch pop out Altuve, swing and miss for the fences George, double play Correa, and riding the bench Yordan?

Nobody knows..

Well I can tell you one of those things won't happen in October.

Bullpen numbers have been garbage all across mlb this season, so he's not wrong.

We have been pretty good at showing up umps all season, Carlos's shin guard drop is great, but a classic way to fire up your team is for the manager to get tossed having a fit defending one of the guys. If we get behind today let's get after the ump AJ

there was a short article in the Chronicle that apparently Hinch met with Reddick in Chicago to talk about his playing time, production, etc...,

the wheels may be turning for a change in the outfield

If it weren't for our pitching woes we'd see Ted by now

Has Cy sneed used about 15 options this season so far? Geez

Options are by season. You can go up and down as many times in a season as the team wants. Counts as 1 option

Did the Astros somehow offend the baseball gods by scoring 22 runs last Saturday? Have won only one game since.

so just a 2-man bench today.

Super Jack may get another stint with the big league team

Does the IL move for Diaz erase the 10 day thing for Sneed staying down? He was just demoted yesterday

Are the pitchers so much worse in the PCL than in the majors? Mayfield's AAA stat line is respectable, and he has 25 HR

Our pitchers certainly are. Next time we need one to start, let's just forfeit the game and save our pen. It would at least limit the damage to just one game.

Now that I'm back home from San Diego. They better win today, I'm rocking my Astros hat to give the team some good mojo!

Braves just put up a 4-spot on the Dodgers in the B6. They are up 5-3 in the 7th.

Indians up 6-0 on the Yankees in the 7th.

I know I am biased but I firmly believe that we have the best lineup, top to bottom, in MLB. The starting pitchers are all top shelf. The bullpen has (except for the last week) have been pretty darn good.

Yet we are faced with needing someone to put the team on their back & break out of a 5-game losing streak.

I don't care who it is, get it done. This old man needs to feel good about baseball again.

Man why send him there?

He had a terrible start

Why can't we do the little things right? So frustrating

They were speculating that something might be wrong with him, but it looked like he just didn't keep his head down. Kept looking back at the throw

Awful baseball being played. Was altuve running at full speed or did he not think there was going to be a throw?

Unfkkngbelievable

No runs after all that

Altuve has a tendency to want to watch the fielders as he runs. He always seems to be "looking". He did it twice that inning (going home to 1st and again 3rd to home). That might have cost him a step or so.

We had a promising start then wet the bed.
