    Since youre an expert on all things Astros related now; What do you think about getting swept at home since we were a better road team than home team and HFA is not a big deal?

    Im just a tshirt fan, so Ill just hang up and listen. Thanks.

    Astros have had several stretches this year when the bats have gone silent..they are in one right now at the worst possible time.

    The Starting Rotation was setup bad in the First place Keuchel in Game 3 and Game 7 that is is 2 losses guaranteed. Charlie should've started Game 3 and Game 7 and had rest.

    Forrest Whitley, Myles Straw should've been selected over Joe Smith, Hector Rondon
    Real threat of a pitcher, and a real base running threat. Marwin, Jake, cannot steal a base at all.

    Really weird, injured off years For Marwin Gonzalez, Dallas Keuchel, Lance McCullers Jr., Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa, Yuli Gurriel, Roberto Osuna.
    Underperforming, Injuries, Jail Time and Suspension for Osuna, There is bad Karma on the team and I think the team as a whole is showing it in this series now.

    They scored 5 runs last game and 7 the one before. That’s just under 4.7 a game this series and would be good for 10th best in baseball (better than Milwaukee of the teams left). They had 7 hits tonight. Sometimes there is a little luck in how you string the hits together, but this isnt that abnormal of a three game stretch, nor is it particularly bad.

    I think this is what happens when you talk baseball on a basketball board. There are 31 other teams who would love Keuchel as a number 3.

    You could make a legitimate argument you’d rather have Morton go in game 7, but Morton might not be 100% and can pitch out of the bullpen which Keuchel has struggled with the few times he’s done it recently.

    No way. Bregman in the 3 spot puts so much pressure on them. Id be down for Marwin right now though.

    Hinch and his bullpen managing sucks. If his hand is not forced and he has free range to select pitchers. We are doomed, i.e., 2015 alds

    If he trusted Smith to pitch the 6th... Osuna gets another shot. At most he may get an easy inning if we are ahead, otherwise he could be out there to close soon.

    Do you clean your ass with your tooth brush and eat glass because it makes your **** black?

    Attended that game. Absolutely brutal.

    I’m currently skeptical we can go all the way with Correa being a mendoza line batter.

    Yeah I really don’t get the sky is falling attitude. The team played poorly and lost. It’s time to bounce back from it. This series is hardly over. Time for some to get a grip.
