    We go from having a day off after every other series to 2 straight weeks without a day including a night game at home where we then turn around and have to be in Minn for a 1 oclock start, good thing we didn’t go extra innings. :oops: Enjoy the game bobrek!

    I was thinking more along the lines of the 4 top 20 prospects (+ 2 seasons of team control of Giles) for ~ 3.5 seasons of control of Pressly and Osuna. That's a decent haul considering how deep the astros farm is.

    Kemp batting 2nd. Springer batting lead off may be be the most untouchable batting order spot in MLB.

    I hope to. Thanks! :)

    Of course, I can't use my MLB account to watch the game since it will be blacked out and will have to watch the Twins station.

    Let's hope Altuve's knee isn't an issue.

    It’s ok... but this is why you have a deep system.

    They had severe needs now during a contending window that needed to be filled.

    Some of those needs were based on Giles not going to be able to do the job consistently that they acquired him for. There was also a better than likely chance that they would have non-tendered him at the end of the year vs paying him his arbitration eligible raise.

    They also don’t trade just for rentals... which is part of the genius.

    I pretty much watch all the games on my mlb account except last night I had to get the espn app. Use a vpn and try diff locations, I have good luck with Great Britian and Germany.

    That well organized rant against MLB scheduling, complete with emojis, was just you waking up??

    For what it’s worth, I actually think they do better with less off days... especially from an offensive standpoint.
