    Rangers would have lost if their 9th hitter in Leody was dead weight.

    Well Ronel Blanco didn't make a difference in the playoffs nor should he have if he is the worst pitcher... same should have applied to the worst position player.

    You would have a bit more credibility if you didn't call folks racist without reason... Ausmus and LaRussa get the same level of disapproval on these threads.

    It’s really too damn bad. But racists don’t want to be called out on it. All this crying about not playing Diaz and Chas, yet Dusty is the one who put Peña in the 2 hole last year that led to a chip. They would have rather lost than have Dusty ring. Despicable honestly.

    But we have seen Hinch stand there and watch his team blow leads. Oh yeah, the same people complaining about Dusty now were on Hinch’s head for never showing any fire or getting ejected. Now all of a sudden he had no flaws lol!!!!

    Wooooo buddy. Now Dusty is the worst thing to have happened to them. The David Duke boys only wanted him here to clean up the scandal that HINCH’s team created. Lawd. They were NEVER comfortable with him. He cleaned it up and won. And is a better manager than Hinch, and best in Astros history.

    Dusty has been a terrible manager for decades, yet the Astros managed to win once despite him.

    Last year, he showed just how much he could handicap a team and the Astros barely made the playoffs at all.

    I get that certain types of people have non-baseball reasons for blindly supporting him.....but those typically aren't baseball fans to begin with.

    Let's not forget....

    Deciding to play 8 v 9 is costing us the World Series. Putting in an all-star setup man before the 9th isn't.

    Hinch panicked because he is a coward. The first one to lose all home games. Here come the excuses.

    I'm sure you think so based on non-baseball reasons.

    The fact that the Astros became the only team in MLB history to be good enough to overcome Dusty Baker's sabotage was a borderline miracle.

    The fact that the bullpen never looked as dominant under Hinch than under Dusty…….

    This is why I know you don't actually follow baseball.

    The Astros had the best bullpen in the MLB in 2018 and the second best bullpen in 2019.... they had the 6th best this season.... largely because of decisions by Dusty Baker like continuing to throw guys like Montero in games to completely blow things up.

    Dusty's decisions as a manager were far too often completely indefensible and almost done out of spite.

    Coaches I wanted fired as a Houston sports fan:
    McHale, Baker, Bickerstaff, Bloomgren, Bragga, Collins, Williams, JVG, Silas, Cecil, O'Brien, Porter

    Coaches I wish stayed longer: Rudy, Pringles, Dierker, Kubiak, Rhoades, Garner, Sumlin, Pardee, Chaney

    I was neutral on everyone else...

    2018, 2019, years they DIDNT win lol and no. The 2022 Astros bullpen was one of the most dominant ever especially in the postseason
