Yep

Sums up the night.

Glad this turd of a game is finally over. What a clunker.

A Maddux is a complete game win with under 100 pitches? I had never heard that. He was good no doubt. Great in fact. But he got the benefit of a lot of calls six inches off the plate. Stuff you could never get away with now.

the Astros need to get back to playing the AL West -- that's where they make hay. The Chisox have been tough on the 'stros this year.

Houston had a 1 game lead on the Yankees after Saturday's big win. Now 3 days later trail the Yankees by 1 1/2 games

AJ...can walk back tonight, he played the doubleheader for a spllit and got a split

The rain out f'ed some shlt up. Now they had a double header before a day game.

Oh yeah...He lost his starter 5 min before 1st pitch.

What else should he have done differently?

on the brightside...when NYY started its 11-game cupcake run...the Astros were in a virtual tie for the best record.

so they've only lost a game & a half in the standings. Need to win tomorrow to keep it at 1 1/2

Joe Biagini optioned to AAA.

Lol... wow that kinda sucks for him. Devo should have been the one to go IMO

It was going to be someone. Need a starter for Saturday.

Guessing it's just because he won't be able to pitch for a while anyways so they need his roster spot.

He can ride pine and rest in AAA while a fresh arm comes up.

They optioned the guy unavailable for tomorrow, since he threw 40 pitches there was no way he was pitching tomorrow so you bring up a pitcher

Looks like Sneed seems like a good candidate to come up for relief tomorrow

So right before the game as he was warming up, Josh Miller called down & told me his hammy wasn't feeling very good & didn't feel like he could continue. Devo was on his way to 'pen. He's usually the first reliever out there anyways. So we raced to get him ready. Scratched Cole & he came in to see the trainers and got some treatment. We'll get him tested even further & see where it takes us but he doesn't think it's that serious. I'm glad he told us. We hope it's mild. It was literally a couple minutes before the game.

So Biagini goes down, and Cy Sneed will come back up, pitch brilliantly and then get sent down again?

Any chance FW gets a call up before September? After?

It's likely he gets a shot after the September expansion, but he's not on the 40-man roster, so it's less of a slam dunk than someone like Tucker.

I doubt he gets called up before September unless there's a rash of injuries.

He's also been a grease fire on the mound this year. They aren't calling him up until he starts missing bats and throws more strikes in AA.

Good for Marwin. Miss that guy. I hadn't looked up his stats in awhile.

.256/.320/.416 with 14 HRs, 41 RBI, 82 SOs, 28 BBs.

He's having a pretty meh year. Pretty similar to Diaz.
Harry Dunne
How long do you want to ignore this user?
I feel the same but would rather have Diaz for $2M than Marwin for 12.
CoachRTM
How long do you want to ignore this user?

Agreed. He's been inconsistent (at best) this year.

Though it wouldn't surprise me if he's on the big league club in September in low leverage situations. (When AJ throws a white flag early in games)

He's probably part of the team's 2020 plan, so at some point we have to see what we've got.
Ag_07

But Diaz is making $2M this year and arb eligible until 2022

Meanwhile Marwin is making $12M this year then $9M then a FA

Good for Marwin for getting that payday but he's not worth that.

Sending Biagini down is curious. That was his last option. Devo had 3.

No excuse. AJ should have got in Cole's face and asked him where his balls were. He should have forced him to throw this game to win this double header. One day AJ will figure it out I hope.

In other Exstros news Evan Gattis is still a free agent and Tony Sipp cleared waivers after being in DFA by the Nats.

Exactly, show some friggin heart and pitch on one leg. If Cole would have been out there the offense would have been way better.
Harry Dunne

That's a great point.

I thought options are year-based. You can option someone as many times as you want, but only for so many years.

You are correct.

Once you've spent so much time in the minors that year, an option is used.

Yes and no. Options are year based and you only get so many. Within that year you can send someone up and down as many times as you want and it only counts as one option. At some point years of service kick in and options go away. Jake was that way.

Biagini had one left and they just used it. So if something happened next year with him and he went south they could not send him down to work it out. It could tie their hands in the future.
