    Jeez, let's not feed the troll people.

    He said NOTHING with Castor castrated him publicly (at least I didn't see a retort), and then he comes out of the woodwork as soon as Keuchel gives up a few hits, which IMMEDIATELY turns into Hinch-bashing. I don't know if I should find humor in this, or pity. Probably a little bit of both.

    It feels like every single batter is starting with an 0-2 count.

    It is just a little hard to beat the same MLB team 4 straight games... even the mediocre ones.

    No shame in Grienke flashing his stuff today and the Astros hitters rolling over on it.... 5+ runs in 4 straight, with 8 runs/game in 3 of the 4. Further magnifies the importance of pulling out last night's game, basically having to win it twice.

    We are most likely going 8-2. As unbelievable as it sounds to posters like cangre, I'll take that as solid baseball.

    Nahhh, i saw the game, and my friend, i've see Greinke pitch in person.

    Now, lets see:

    Greinke 4.29 ERA with a whip under 1.3
    K an ERA of 5.50 and a whip over 1.4.

    This year Greinke is pitching MUCH BETTER THAN K.

    And if we go on career numbers, out of 5 years, K has had over 5 ERA in 3 of those years.


    So, who would you take of the two??? I take Greinke, sorry.

    Just ignore it. We're 8-2 in our last 10 winning our last 3 series and people will still find things to complain about.

    I'll take the 3-1 series win but man this was a winnable game. As weird as it sounds, would have been nice to have Castro's bat in there against a RHP.

    Lol where in the world did I ever say Dallas has been a better pitcher over his career. Are you just literally making up posts to argue about?

    Yeah winnable games are always tough. Shame Castro got sick during his recent string of solid games. But still 3/4 in any 4 game series regardless of who you are playing is impressive.

    Yep... he would have started, but got the flu. Also wise to give Gattis days off from catching, as he doesn't need any increased injury risk (and the Astros don't need the return of Erik Kratz).

    Don't know how winnable it is with 0 runs scored... Greinke was on.

    Right now if i have to decide between 1 of 2 pitchers and you give me McCullers and K i take McCullers.

    Yea...I just hope we are not 0-5 by the time we leave the Rangers series. Then, this surge to climb closer to .500 will be all for not.

    Devenski using all 3 pitches. If he can do that he can be a starter.

    Classic castrated-jero51 responding to a post mocking him... and continuing the cartoonish rants.

    Plenty of runs left in this season. They just made up 4 games in 1 week.

    They don't have to make it all back at once.... especially not in this division.
