Guduan is not a good pitcher.
Which is a shame because for parts of last season he looked like a pretty good uan. Perhaps he just needs more time in our system to refine his craft.

The way Josh and Jake are swinging, I'm guessing that Great White will be losing ABs soon. As Bearkat sits idly by and does nothing to help.

I ****ing love Bregman's hardass/cocky/balls out attitude.

I don't see a "rake" stat.

EDIT: Nevermind, I found it at the bottom...

fRAKE+ = OPS + wRC + batting average - batting average + passes the "look" test + seems to be hitting well - whether or not he's a rookie

I've been moving so been watching the games on my phone but wanted to check in and say I love Alex Bregman.

Why did they pinch hit for altuve?


I asked Chandler and here's his response:

Quote:

"That was an underassessment on our part.We had a feeling (Laureano) was going to be a pretty good big league player, but he's gotten off to a faster start in his career than we thought. So, yeah, he's one that I'd love to have back." - Jeff Luhnow
Why the Astros dealt Ramon Laureano

Even the wizard whiffs sometimes, but owns it well. It's hard to see where Laureano would fit in anyway when they are even trying to convert Straw to an infielder.

He's leading the Pacific Coast League in HRs, RBIs, and is 4th in OPS.

+/- the angular geometry of the player's jawbone

Don't mean to be technical stats geek guy, but angular geometry of jaw is included in the look test (fLC+) part of the formula.

fLC+ = jaw angular geometry + size of elbow pad(s) + sound of ball coming off the bat - gut size + whether or not he wears high socks

Why does this stat single out Tyler White?

May want to find a way to work in the looks of the girlfriend or spouse to get a confidence factor.

From what I understand, bearkat was on the stat formulation committee

Wife/GF hand size is also critical.

Imagining this thread being behind something groundbreaking is hilarious.

I enjoy this place but we're dumb AF (yet still WAY smarter than the avg fan which is scary).

Don't forget about the ass height factor. Best measured from the top of the pocket to ground. Look it up.

Have you seen most of the Astro wives/girlfriends? It is clear that Luhnow already has this included in the analytics.

Man, I'm sitting on a barstool and hope to see some baseball tonight. Took a beating from a customer today, my 24 year old college graduate daughter called needing even more money, and Premium is freaking the hell out over Woodward leaving. I'm liberally drinking and just might pass out before first pitch.

If I say anything rude later, please forgive me. Except Farmer, I'm sure he'll deserve it...

I accidentally clicked on the Rangers season thread... it was like being buzzed while bar hopping and stepping into an empty dead hole in the wall. Yeesh.

Being 53, I haven't done that in several decades, but I remember the feeling. Happened into a south-of-the-border strip club one time. First and last time I ever shotgunned a Miller Lite, and it was not fast enough. But that's another story...

Speaking of regrettable memories, have you guys ever had a night at Minute Maid? It's only my second season on this thread, so excuse the semi-rookie question. If not, let's pick a date and make it happen. No more Napoleon Dynamite "well, we chat for three hours a night so it's getting pretty serious" or whatever that quote was. Let's get a thread night at the ballpark for the Astros Primos and watch some baseball!

  • CFTXAg can show us his Rule 1 collection on this phone.
  • Deluxe can bore us with his rake stat.
  • Nuke can predict the latest abomination that will end the world.
  • Mazag08 can start a thread about it.
  • Bulldog78 can sit in the section over and watch us from afar.
  • iBrad can bring some trivia.
  • Bearkat can heckle Puddin without mercy in his best Randy Quaid impersonation.
  • Buck and I can ***** about whatever is pissing us off at the moment.
  • Spadilly can tweet out the interesting moments
  • Farmer can excuse himself to go jack off reading the latest FanGraphs data.
  • Milkman can offer unending encouragement.

Ok, sorry to have left anyone out, I lost focus at this point. But let's still do this!

I actually do think that would be pretty fun. Dibs on sitting next to CFTXAg.
