Member when i said the Sanchez deal would be sneaky good. Feels very Presley esce and is very quickly paying off.


That was a great call on your part. Everyone else was like "no chance the Astros will be able to take this underachieving guy with good stuff and high spin rate and turn him around".

Maybe it's me but seems like he hasn't been clutch for a while.

...and everyone else would be stupid to think that. It's early, but Sanchez with Strom and the other starters on this team has a chance to learn a lot and get his confidence back.

Yuli is coming back down to earth. Pretty good timing though with Diaz back and everyone else hitting.

I'd pay lots of money to watch a live stream of the Blue Jays pitching coach watching this game.

Kyle Seager has really fallen off a cliff from a few years ago.

making $19 MM this year and another $19 MM in 2020

In regards to Sanchez ... sometimes it's easier for a guy to go from starting on a horrible team to an amazing team. In Toronto, he basically needed to be on his A+ game every start. Here in Houston, he knows the offense is amazing so there isn't as much pressure to throw a shutout every game.

Same thing with Cole transitioning from 2017 to 2018

Good outing for Sanchez. It is almost laughable we do the same thing with every pitcher and no one tries it with their staff.

High heat for eye level
Then off speed.
Don't throw the sinker.
?????
Profit.

I don't understand it either. It doesn't seem like rocket science.

stop throwing the sinking fastball

Was coming to post that. Some (on Twitter) were saying it was too quick for the Astros to have an impact. The way this game was called absolutely impacted the results. I feel like the general formula for success isn't all that hidden at this point. Why aren't there more copy cats?
