    This afternoon Dusty said he doesn't text, or e-mail Click, he prefers face-to face interactions. I'm hoping Click is a text, e-mail guy.

    Like ever ??? That seems counterproductive to how business is done in the modern age. So they didn’t talk for 2 years during covid then ?!

    Funny how letting A+ talent walk with minor leaguers filling in bites you in the ass.

    Why the **** is he still playing in the big leagues? That's awful. He's not even fielding well anymore and his arm is shot.

    I can't get too worked up about this lull. 9 hits was plenty to win this game, just didn't string them together. In fact, I'm expecting the next 3 weeks are going to be more of the same while McCullers, Mancini, Vasquez and hopefully Brantley find their footing and DH/OF/1B/C rotations get setup.

    I'm stupidly optimistic that they will be rolling come September.

    Sure do miss Springer and Correa. At least they had heart

    Astros had terrible months of August with those 2 players as well.

    It's the manager's job to put the team in the best position to win, Dusty isn't doing that...

    And neither could help us get past the Nats or TB. And Correa couldn’t do **** against the Braves. All very pathetic offensive showings. They choked along with all the other hitters.

    We do need guys with heart though. I agree with that.

    I have to agree. Meyers shouldn’t be playing.

    Springer was pretty good in that nationals series.

    The Astros would have a hard time beating an entire team of Gallo's right now. And that's with Gallo pitching.
