    Matt Albers just got called back up to the Nats. IIRC, he pitched 10 scoreless innings in ST and got demoted anyway.

    I always liked that guy, good for him.

    He did have a pretty badass HR-saving catch the other day.

    Bastard.

    SSS and all, but Robbie Grossman is currently 6th in the AL in OPS, at 1.043... our leader is George Springer, at .867.

    Grossman, overall, had a pretty good year last year, but also started 2016 (started playing in May) with a 1.100+ OPS. Regressed into the mid-high .700s June-August and then closed with a .900 September.

    It's kind of funny to me that the only young players who have really excelled after leaving the Astros were the ones they released or practically gave away (Grossman, Villar, and Martinez). Browsing the players they traded away as prospects, I only view Enrique (Kike) Hernandez as a quality major leaguer. All the others are either still prospects or haven't panned out. Lyles, Cosart and Folty were probably the most highly touted guys they traded away and none of those have done much. Velasquez has shown flashes but is oft-injured and can't go deep into games. Phillips, Ruiz, Appel, and Nottingham have had their stock fall. Mengden and Tropeano have been hurt. Thurman was released. Santana may end up being a decent player. And Hader and Abreu are elite prospects with very high ceilings. But all in all I wouldn't say any prospects Luhnow has traded away have come back to bite them so far.

    Derision aside, I can't recall ever seeing an athlete's skills diminish as rapidly and as dramatically as Carlos Gomez's has.
