Altuve will try to steal here. He spent a lot of time on first last time trying to figure out Jackson

This dude has given up 5 runs and still lowered his ERA!

We won't win WS without Correa. Our infield defense drops off dramatically without him. And the big difference between Astros and Yankees is defense. The Yankees give away 1-2 runs every game to us by stacking their team big clunky sluggers.

Man, balm just didn't get down for Super Jack. Really hoping he gets a hit this game.

Mayfield can play 2B or SS.

We brought up Mayfield over Straw to confuse Tucker

I wish I could just leave the jobsite every time I had some discomfort. I've got a bunch of joints giving me chronic pain right now.


Yes, this is exactly the same and completely relevant.


I agree that's why I said it

It definitely doesn't help our chances if he's out, but to say we can't win it without him is silly.

Far lesser teams than this one minus Correa have won the World Series.

151 games, and he didn't lead the AL in RBI that season. Lou Gherig had 173 RBI in 155 games.
I wonder why the Yankees played 155 games that year? The regular season was 154 games then and I'm pretty sure the '27 Yankees didn't need a one game playoff.

Anyone know?


Everything thing I check says their record was 110-44, which is 154 games.


Yep, but Baseball Reference lists 155 games with a tie on April 14th. Weird...and I cannot find any details other than the boxscore.

This link says the tie was "discounted." I'm not sure what that means. Did they throw the game out and replay another game, which would be strange. Especially strange if they threw the game out but counted the stats. I dunno ...

Down and away off the plate. Pulled to that part of the park by Ronny Rodriguez. Its not just a tight wound ball.

I really don't agree with ever giving Rondon the baseball with runners on. He hardly ever has a clean inning.

So it was you that caused Wade to make that pitch. Man. Thought you loved the 'Stros.

TK takes a lot of vacations for a guy whose job it is to talk about baseball.

Well yeah it's possible, but the defensive drop off without him was very noticeable this year

I'm worried a lot more about the offensive dropoff. Carlos is a good defender but his impact on the offensive side is a lot greater and less replaceable by a guy playing that position.

Although I do think with Diaz in the lineup and people shifting around we are still plenty good enough.

I always thought Springer would be the guy we didn't re-sign. However, you have to start thinking that the more we see Correa's injuries pile up, the more likely it is Springer gets a competitive offer.
