The Astros have batted twice in this game and the stat cast has Pittsburgh with a 90% of winning. Not sure if that says more about our pitching or our offense at this point. Ouch.
How often does a team come back from 6-0 through 2 IP?

Agreed, but my question was which is the bigger culprit. I go with pitching but then watch our batters and think it's the offense. I guess the answer is it's fairly equal suckage at this point... and that it really doesn't matter. The team's just collectively bad at the moment.

Rangers could move within 4 games in the loss column by the end of the day.

where did that 10-game lead go?

I revise my 9-2 prediction. We will be playing the AL West leading Rangers after the break. Something is ****ing off

This is why you don't play him in LF. Put him as a DH and let him mash.

Not a bad debut for Sneed

Didn't Yordan take a foul ball off a knee the other day? That may be why it is sore and not his outfield play.

Running around in the OF certainly doesn't help a dinged up knee.

Were there no other pitching prospects or guys we could have sent over there for Cole? At the time I wasn't happy about losing him, and given our issues at the moment we could really use him

So if anything these last two games have completely convinced me we definitely need another starter before the deadline. Go get MadBum or Scherzer or Stroman or Boyd.....whomever

As I recall, he wasn't that great as a starter. I seem to remember him being pretty good out of the pen.

Didn't he get hurt somewhere along the way as well?

They wouldn't have taken paulino and I don't think we were keen on shipping out martes

Edit.. replied to the wrong post. This was meant in response to needing another pitcher- which I think all of us agree is becoming a necessity regardless of what we thought two months ago.

Some of us malcontents have punched a hole in that drum since the season started. Miley has been very good as a #3 (so far I have been wrong about him), but I still do not believe that this team is best served with McHugh and Peacock in the rotation. No sense beating a dead horse, though. Until Luhnow makes a move, it is what it is and the offense must find a way to start producing.

I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

That outfield play by Springer / Kemp makes it obvious to me these guys don't have their heads in this. Someone needs to rip these guys behind closed doors. I'd say they should sacrifice a chicken, but Tyler would fry and eat it before they could get set up.

It's never fair to say they don't care, or that they gave up. Those guys care more than we do. That said, something went missing this month. Woof.

Not saying they don't care, just that they aren't focused. Even with a big deficit, losing focus isn't acceptable.

Each season the last few years we've had one month that was just really bad and an outlier

2016 - April (kept us from postseason)
2017 - August
2018 - August
2019 - June

Hopefully this is just that one month outlier
