If you guys haven't noticed, we are a shell of a team without George. It used to be Altuve, but it's George's team now.



The spirit of this team is not George, but George's pants

Had to listen on the radio while dealing with a breakdown at work. Really sad I missed the meltdown around here. Did the Nancies make it through the first, or call it a night by the time Miley got pulled?

Good win, hope someone can come up with an appropriate nickname for the new guy, something that exudes awesomeness commensurate with a two hit night in only his thirtieth MLB game!

He did have a couple of clutch hits, happy for him, great team game, we got grit!

Summer of 1994 I had just finished my sophomore year at ATM and got a job hauling luggage at Intercontinental Airport. So flush with cash at age 20 that I purchased an Astros' 20-game mini-season ticket deal for myself.
One of the games was a Monday nighter on national TV against the Cardinals that saw us go down 11-0 then rally to a 15-12 victory thanks to an 11 run 6th inning.

Down 11-0 after three, the only reason I didn't leave was because the Cardinals were starting Allen Watson, who was on my Fantasy Baseball team, thus making me much more aware of how much he sucked compared to the average fan.

The epic 6th inning saw the Astros have 11 straight guys reach with 1 out, and their win % went from 2% to 95%

O I am sorry. Just hit the game tying hit last night after being called Kyle Tuxer. Guess you don't like winning?





I know it's stupid I just want to be known for something like Bearkat on this thread and really hope Kyle Tucker turns it on lolol

That was only one of my meltdowns. I had another one after the Mariners took the lead in the 11th but maybe I didn't record it on here.

Man, this offense. So good even with George and Correa out. That was a 2017 type win.

Totally feels like 2017 again...plenty of games that year I had to go to bed early and watch the DVR for an improbable comeback. Just no more freaking injuries.

Amazing to me is that they scored double digit runs but didn't look that good at the plate for such long stretches of the game. Of course, Joe West's schizophrenic strike zone might have influenced that.

to be fair, the team deserved to be laughed at after giving up 7 runs to the freaking mariners in the first 2 innings of the game

I got some catching up to do this morning.

I was dozing off and missed all the action. Woke up during the post game and saw we won but missed all the action.

Derek Fisher dropped another fly ball last night

Toronto fans are sick of him already

Looks like the best piece in the trade may be the mi or leaguer we got

Nuggets from a recent Athletic article.

On Toro's HR in the no-no

Quote:

So how rare was what Toro did? According to STATS, only once before had anybody ever homered with two outs in the ninth to give a pitcher the lead in a game in which he threw a no-hitter. That was Detroit's Vic Wertz, for Virgil Trucks, back on May 15, 1952. But that was a walk-off, in the bottom of the ninth. (There was also a Mark Smith walk-off bomb for the Pirates, with two outs in the bottom of the 10th, on July 12, 1997 but that was a Francisco Cordova/Ricardo Rincn combined no-hitter, which is a whole different feat.) In other words

When Abraham Toro went deep, it was the first time any player had ever hit a go-ahead homer with two outs in the top of the ninth, which allowed the guy on the mound to go out and get the final three outs of his no-hitter. Very cool.

On whether the no-no sealed the Cy Young for JV
Quote:

CY VERLANDER? Here's a theory we need to shoot down: Verlander's no-hitter clinched him the AL Cy Young Award. The verdict on that: Nope! Not with a month to go. But if he does win that Cy Young

You should know that five pitchers have won a Cy Young in a season in which they pitched a no-hitter. You've heard of them! The list: Jake Arrieta, Clayton Kershaw, Roy Halladay, Mike Scott and Sandy Koufax (twice).

So what could separate Verlander from those other guys? Here's what: They all did that in the National League. In other words, how many pitchers in American League history have a Cy Young and a no-hitter in the same season? That would be (yep) none.

If JV and Cole finish 1st and 2nd in Cy Young voting
Quote:

If he and his Astros amigo, Gerrit Cole, finish 1-2 in the Cy Young voting which sure looks likely they'd do something that's never been done in the AL, and has almost never been done, period.

The only starters on the same team who have ever ended up first and second in the Cy Young voting in any season? That would be who else? Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling, who did that twice, in 2001 and 2002.

Asterisk alert: In 1974, Mike Marshall and Andy Messersmith of the Dodgers also finished 1-2, but Marshall was a reliever. So our ruling is not the same thing!
