    I agree that Gattis has looked decent the past couple of games, but Hinch wouldn't even give Kemp a shot when both Rasmus and Gattis couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.

    It's incredibly frustrating considering Kemp very consistently has great at bats.... which comes few and far between with this team.

    I don't disagree that I would like Kemp to get some chances

    But hard to argue with the results last 6 weeks

    I calculated our win expectancy at 57.4%. FanGraphs has us winning 55% of the time, and FiveThiryEight has us winning 57% of the time. Vegas line is Astros -144, which implies a 59.02% chance to win.

    I find it interesting that I (and other prediction models) almost never find value in Astros lines. Usually find it gives the edge to the other team, despite the Astros being a pretty unlucky baseball team. Vegas even seems to consistently overrate the Rockets, as they were one of the worst ATS teams in the NBA last season.

    Do we have any Gattis effect stats yet? Are we winning? Are the pitchers doing better under Castro or Gattis?

    Who knew Correa had a 36 game errorless streak prior to that bad hop grounder?

    Exactly what brought me to this thread. This is a dangerous team if Gomez produces like he did in Milwaukee.

    Well looking at Colby's slide and Gonzalez slide into home in slo mo, they were both pretty terrible. With Catchers off the plate they should be attacking the plate directly.

    Colby didn't even need to slide.
