This is a clunker.

I have been on record since spring training that this rotation will not win a title. I actually thought McHugh would be better, but he's surrendered 24 earned runs in his last 18 innings pitched. I had zero hope for Miley and Peacock, but Miley's been good. Peacock has no business facing batters a third time, and maybe not a second. Cole's 4+ ERA won't carry us very far. Overall the rotation has underperformed.

The good news is that we have some help down at RR both on the mound and at the plate. I also expect Luhnow to make a move or two. It would also help if our MVP would start batting like one.

Season's still young. They'll get there.

Tyler White has no business being on a contending roster. Easily the worst player in an Astros uni. That's even with Kemp and Stassi sucking wind at the plate, but at least they play some defense.

Nice play by George.

How many times would Kemp have jumped waiting for that ball to come down? Haha.

Duck Fallas.


Why? He's one of the best pitchers in Astros history.


I think his attitude now is cancerous.

I know that we were pretty unsuccessful with the aggressive approach early in the season, but I'd like to see the numbers on what our SB% needs to be in order to make it a better option than staying put.

I'm just tired of GIDPs. I'd rather go for it, at least with the guys like Bregman that can run a little.

How about this for a wild/crazy idea?

Trade for a SP
Bring up a starting pitcher
Move McHugh and Peacock
Demote Framber and James
Sign Kimbrel

I'm here only to see if White strikes out a 3rd time.

Wow. He hit that one a long way & only took him 8 seconds to get from home to first.

The only reason I'm still watching is to see Tyler White's fat ass pitch.

I don't think his attitude has changed much.

Seems like a lot. Who are we cutting to make room for Kimbrel? Are good with giving him George's money? What do we do if said AAA minor pitcher sucks?

Serious question. Does Hinch consider moving Altuve down the lineup until get turns it around? I'm thinking drop him to 6th

I could see him 5th and just move up Bregs, Brants, & CC.

I can't remember exactly, but in general it's something like 2/3 of steals need to be successful to add value.

Seriously, no matter what else you do with your life, how cool would it be to say that you had a major league strikeout?

After watching White sling it up there at 70 mph, Sparkman looked like he was throwing absolute gas by comparison

McHugh's last 4 starts

Astros: 0-4
McHugh: 0-3, 18 IP, 24 ER, 12.00 ERA

I don't think we see McHugh start as scheduled Sunday against the Rangers. Those numbers are gross for a MLB starter. And beyond that the bullpen is racking up a lot of innings in his starts.
