    If you want to trade Correa it shouldn't happen when his value is low. Just last year before he was hurt he was neck and neck with Altuve for MVP. At least wait for when he's up for MVP again. Fans probably wouldn't want to dump him then though.

    Correa’s bat was better than altuve the $100 million dollar man

    It went pretty much as pathetically as it possibly could have after Reddick and Kemp

    Springer, Altuve and Correa all swung at ball 4... and for such talented hitters their approach has not been great... not a surprise Bregman and Kemp reached while the big 3 struggled. The season isn’t over but this problem is not looking like a fluke... all we can do is hope is they turn it around.

    Only place Correa is scoring these days is the bedroom. That fine fiancée might be the problem

    All this trade Correa bs is hilarious. When the entire team is underperforming offensively some of the blame might need to fall on the coaching staff.

    As I've said, extend Bregman and Cole to go alongside Altuve, fill the rest internally.
    And, yikes at Rondon loading the bases. Not sure if I trust anyone in the pen right now, except Pressly and Smith.

    Yeah embarrassingly pathetic. You can tell they were pitching around Bregman to get to Altuve too.

    Guess the Astros decided to take the night off and let Oakland have the division lead.

    I agree. I know your stars don’t always come through. That’s baseball but I do expect good at bats and good approaches. Minus Bregman. That’s just hasn’t happened. Altuve gets a pass because of his track record. Correa and Springer not so much

    Correa will figure his struggles out and be very good... his injuries have really set him back and he just isn’t in the class with guys like A-Rod and it wasn’t fair to put him in that class to begin with.

    I give his guff over the “Team Correa” crap because he was marketed like he was a Hall of Famer already.

    Still a save situation for Anaheim. Unbelievable that Hector Houdini got out of that inning with a LOWER ERA. Still, not good to load the bases with nobody out.
    Now let's rally back and walk this off!

    I predict if Bregman gets to bat this inning the Astros win.

    I know RBIs are such a silly little stat now, but the mother****er that's hitting 3-4-5 should sure as hell drive in some runs.

    Again, tell me why I'm wrong. I do not care what the computer says.

    17 innings and 2 runs for the Astros.... correction Tyler White has two runs....

    We have two more against the Angels.... what is the over/under for runs we score this series? I would guess we end up with 7 in 4 games against the Angels... maybe we even avoid the sweep.
