Machete didn't help him much. That was an awful receiving job

Steroids can do that.

I don't necessarily disagree but why would you put a governor on a Ferrari? I don't think you'd ever be able to get him to change the way he plays.

Greg Maddux was a sub 3 era pitcher for almost 15 years 'pitching ' not fire balling - very similar to Greinke's style. Then suddenly his Era went up a full point in 2003 and he spent last 5 years of his career as 4 era pitcher. I think we got 2001 Greg Maddux in Greinke, but the worry that he is nearing the drop off Maddux had in 2003 is real

Does Marisnick take Reddick or Tuckers spot in the field with some triple switching

Brantley changed.

He used to be a gold glove finalist but after several injuries he turned it down to the point that he looks like he's loafing. People hate on him for it, but I'd rather have him hitting .330 for 155 games than have him hustle and save a run every once in a while but miss half the season.

The return on running into walls and diving for balls is minimal relative to the risk.

Somebody get Tucker some batting gloves

Picking up dirt after every pitch has to be annoying. It's annoying just watching it

Pulling for Tucker to get a hit here. Just for once, I'd like to see him with a productive MLB batting average - even for a brief moment.

Say what you want about Greinke but he put us in position to win tonight. If it weren't for that one mistake we'd be up by a run

It's hard to win ballgames when you only score 2 runs

True on both.

So we have Stubbs, Toro, Tucker in the field and Perez pitching.

The Round Rock Astros are back

Yeah George's Amazing catch will end in a loss and Springer out a few games. Save your health in non playoff non must win games

Would be nice to pass Yankees but I get the feeling that Hinch will go popovich now and rest players frequently because he knows he has the best team when healthy whatever the ballpark

Are we still 0fer on games we trail in the 9th? With Hader pitching, odds of us coming back are what?

Tucker is now 9/67 in his short career. .134 for those keeping score.
mwm

George is going to be "George". If I remember correctly, when he made that catch it was a 2-run game and a win was within grasp. Even if we were down 8-1, I doubt George would give anything less than 100%.

Question...it appeared that George landed on his butt before his back/neck hit the wall. I wonder if not being totally familiar with the field & warning track threw him off a little thinking he didn't have as much room as he actually did? It just appeared to me to be awkward.

This ump is obviously terrible about foul tips. That's the second one he ****ing missed (gave them one they didn't get, and just took one from us - that's exactly what Brantley was telling him). The first one led to all four of their runs.

That being said, we have had an inordinate number of 375 foot pop ups to center tonight... Need to stop letting the bat head drop so early and some of those will turn into homers or doubles.

What in the world was that call? It wasn't a swing and it wasn't close to being a strike.

That's some bull**** stuff this inning.
