Tyler White needs to go the way of AJ Reed. I hate saying that too,


There's a "user name checks out" joke with you commenting on Tyler White. I've not drank enough to get there just yet...
Any reason you're being a duuuussher?

I agree, I just really like him as a person coupled with his work ethic. That doesn't mean I'm trying to defend his roster spot though.

You have to be trolling

His work ethic?

He's done nothing but gain weight since he started his pro career. He had a chance to make an impact and solidy himself as a MLer knowing he had this last chance and came to ST out of shape.

He's made no adjustments to his approach and horrific swing.

How is that portraying a good work ethic?

He's 1% body fat.

Hard to win when you score zero runs.

Not any particular reason, not that I've ever needed one. Just thought it was funny, but didn't mean to offend you.

Altuve has not had a good at bat since I don't know when. I don't even remember the last time he swung at a pitch that was actually in the zone. Hope6he gets back to being a good hitter soon.

Sneed is the bright spot tonight.

He has to take over the 5th starter spot until a trade is made after tonight, right?

Bauer needs to call out Odor for that stick'em crap on his helmet. Clearly a cheater.

Wasn't Altuve was a tear when he first came back?I know he had back to back 4 hit nights and thought I remember he was batting .400 for the first 2 series back.

I think you are forgetting his play prior to the break. He was coming around pretty good. Plus, he has an entire career of hitting. He hasn't fallen off a cliff or anything.

I swear, some of you you guys are going to convert me into Irish Pete or Milkman.

However his outing ends, kudos to Sneed for saving the pen tonight.

He will start vs LAA unless Lunhow pulls off a trade before then.... there is 0 reason to not start him after this

You act like Altuve has 6 Silver Sluggers. No way Altuve comes back.

Yup. Really great outing from Sneed.

One reason to stay tuned, White is going to get his chance at a 4th strikeout on the night in these last two innings.

Because he's a mediocre AAA pitcher that is only here due to injury and the overestimation of our organizational pitching depth. He has been solid tonight and it's a minor victory saving the bullpen, but in general he's no better option than Framber.

Serious question, does anybody know a real Ranger's fan (At least knowing who Pudge is)? I grew up in Houston and the ones that rooted for them during their World Series runs magically became Stros fans.

I know like three.

The offense and Valdez owe Sneed an apology after tonight. He kept us in the game

I'm not saying he's a bad hitter. I'm just saying he has not looked like himself all year. Even you guys are singling out the times he's hit well. Used to be we could only single out the few times he hit poorly.

Not to be new internet BFF's, but a good pastor friend is a true blue fan. Last year he dressed his first newborn in a Ranger's onesie for his Facebook "welcome" pic in the hospital. We bought him an Astros burp pad- he appreciated that his kid could throw up on it, but maybe his kid will fixate on the logo and be saved the burden.

It's a fair point. He's not been "old" Altuve for some time, but since he's returned healthy he has shown flashes. Give him time- the organization owes him a near gold mint so he'll get it regardless. Have some patience and remember we're up a good bit in the standings with Correa and Diaz still to return.

Damn it, I watched the remainder of this game to see Puddin get rung up again. NOW you decide to pinch hit for him, AJ?!

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.

Keep Cy Sneed. He has promise to be a starter if he already hasn't proven that.
