    Good to be home. Taking 3 of 4 should get our stretch run geared up. Gotta close em out and get back to timely hitting. Let's go 'Stros!

    Would be happy with a split. Then have our best 3 starters for the Rangers series.

    Pretty even pitching matchups on paper. Hopefully the team has shaken off whatever funk they've been in. We need a good series against Jays before the Rangers series. I'll say 3/4.

    Hoping for 3/4, need at least a split. The McHugh/Estrada matchup looks like a bad one on paper unless McHugh can right the ship. Someone tell him to deal with the blister that will result and throw the **** out of that curve

    Bregman's going to have a breakout series. We take 3/4. Lets Go Stros!

    I like the spirit. Put the trade deadline behind us (and the Detroit series) and take over. Need guys to step up but I think they will for the stretch run. Would be nice if we get some production from Musgrove and Hoyt if his number is called at some point.

    Maybe Musgrove still here in case Fister gets a last second call but guess trust the process if they want to get him acclimated as a long reliever like Devenski and Feliz. Would like to see Hoyt just to see if he can provide another late inning option to the mix.

    If Fister isn't going on paternity yet, why not bring a bat up to replace Feldman's spot. Do we know if Gomez and Marwin are available off the bench tonight?

    I know we flew Musgrove in just in case we needed him, but could they not have got a hitter on standby. May as well have saved Musgrove as the call up when Fister is eventually put on leave.

    good point--does seem questionable unless they know about one of the bats

    Agree

    Unless Marwin and Gomez are available, we need an extra everyday player badly right now

    I cringe every time I see Gattis as the DH

    Donaldson scratched and Tulo already out. Wow, catching a huge break.

    Such an ugly lineup tonight. About all we can do with the injuries though. Let's go! Gotta take 3 of 4

    Let's go 'stros!

    why do they have 8 relievers? Seems heavy, especially with such a short, hurt bench.

    We have to turn the ship now. It's urgent now! But I will say calling up prospects is always underwhelming and trade deadline acquisitions are often over hyped.
