    Odorizzi ruined my 4th of July. Hate this guy.

    Framber getting hurt and Click panic signing him is so bad. Click needs to just cut his losses already.

    Dang... The wrong version of Odorizi has returned... Shame, he was doing great right before that injury.

    Why is this jerkoff even on the team?

    Before we say oh... he hasn’t pitched in x amount of time.

    We have seen plenty of Jake Odo starts like this.

    He is taking a roster spot from Hunter Brown right now.

    This guy is trash.

    This is spot on. Nothing about him is exciting and he always looks like he’s pouting.

    He has one job from now until the deadline - be good enough so that some team battling for a playoff spot desperate for an arm will deal us some of their mid tier prospects that our scouting dept is high on. So far he’s failing.

    Just said the exact same thing to my wife. What a bummer. Took a little excitement out my afternoon, here’s hoping we go crazy and score 9.

    That was also out of the norm for him. He’s been pretty below average in Houston.

    Hopefully this is his last start as an Astro.

    But something tells me he's taken the place of Raley as Baker's newest nephew.

    Gonna be some really upset people when he's still stinking up the rotation and Javier is relegated back to the bullpen is a most useless fashion.

    But we are talking Dusty Baker here.

    So, this guy pitching against Odorite has a 5+ ERA. Does that mean we're in trouble offensively? ;)

    Royals haven't actually squared anything up besides maybe Merrifield's double. Odo is getting soft contact to death and finding holes,.. reminds me of those 2015 pesky Royals...

    They aren't cutting him..... they would have to eat his 6.5 million dollar player option for next year as well..

    A bad pitching performance can just be so deflating in the early innings.

    It's Odorizzi more often than the others.

    Despite this jerkoff's pitching , I'd still be kinda ok if we lose a 7-5 or 12-10 kind of game... Bats don't need to be shutdown by a below average pitcher during a hot streak...

    When Odorizzi was pitching great in the 2-3 starts before his injury, part of me wondered if that was a fluke. I'm leaning towards "yes it was".

    It's his first start back from injury so I'll give him a pass for this start and maybe his next start. He's getting hit but not hammered so far, so that's something I guess. But honestly, his stuff has never impressed me...it was always mediocre or "mid".

    Yeah....Odorizzi has nothing. His stuff or lack thereof doesn't belong on this staff.

    This one is probably over. Thanks Jake.

    We're definitely spoiled by our pitching now but whose fault is that?
