Offseason thread is up. Go easy on me it was my first one and it limited how many pictures I could post. Feel free to add as much as you want on the first page

Now we're calling a guy who goes 5 innings per start at 2 runs a bad pitcher? What world do live in?


I mean lance doesn't, but good red herring.


He doesn't go 5 innings and give up 2 runs?

This year he averaged 5 IP per start with a 3.92 ERA which translates to 2.17 runs per 5. That exactly what he does.


So he averaged not enough innings for a quality start. Cool I guess.

Based on the last couple years data neither do Charlie's Morton, Blake Snell, Tyler Glasnow, Walker Beuhler, Jack Flaherty, Mike Clevinger, Lucas Giolito, Yu Darvish, Sonny Gray, and a ton of other really good pitchers. Should they all move to middle relief too?

Well it was an odd season but overall not too bad. We lost to a damn good team.

Offensive sputter reared its head at the worst time. Bregs (even though pretty unlucky) and Yuli killed us.

Anyways at least we know we're absolutely stacked with arms both in the rotation and the BP. That was a huge surprise this season.

As always I enjoyed it around here. You guys are good people and I'll be right back here next season.

I caught a mini ban last night and I have no idea why. Maybe staff doesn't like redheads or fatties. Most likely it's because they have no sense of humor what so ever at all.
Anyway, what a blast this season was and even better what fun it was hanging with you guys. Think about what the Astros accomplished and all the young arms we have. The future is bright.
There is an off season thread up now so we will be posting there now.
GIG'EM.

I mean, baseball is currently played with the goal of getting 4 innings out of your bullpen every day. Gone are the days of pitchers going deep with regularity.

I hate that the Astros lost and that the 2020 season is over. I wanted more but they just couldn't solve Charlie and, by the time he was out, it was too late. The die had already been cast.

In a way, I'm almost relieved that the season is over for Altuve. It was painful to watch him try & throw a ball like he had done thousands and thousand of times before. I hope & pray he can get it "fixed".

Next year is too far away.

I caught a mini-ban too. Staff doesn't like Kate in a wet T-shirt. Already ready for next year. Personally I hope CFM can get another ring this year

Could be a new staff member. That Kate photo/gif has been posted plenty of times.

That Kate pic has several variations. One earned me a week in 2017. We all know which one.

I had to take a couple of days away from the threads just to cleans the season.

Overall, I'm incredibly happy for this team. They exceeded everyone's expectations, and despite what people will say, they proved they are very good baseball players. Hopefully, for the individual's sakes, they will be a bit exonerated.

It was awesome watching some of these young guys step up and grow.

That was a super fun postseason, and I'm glad I got to enjoy watching it! Onward to 2021!
