The Houston Asstros


Recommended Posts

This team has a lot of players that are easy to dislike:

  • Verlander - Hated him ever since his bitching about Aybar bunting to break-up the no hitter in a close game.
  • Gurriel - The Yu Darvish incident.
  • Marisnick - See today.
  • Osuna - Charged with battery and was suspended for 75 games, although those charges were later dropped.
  • Bregman - His stuff today and I've just never liked him.
  • Reddick - Former Athletics, Red Sox, and Dodgers player.

It should make for a good rivalry over the next several seasons. Please sign Gerrit Cole to make it even better.

What did Bregman do today?

I give them credit for one thing.

Beating the Dogs in the WS

Barking at Robles after he was pumped up getting the strike out to end the 9th. I think he was pissed about the quick pitch during his AB. Robles throws the quick pitch a lot too so I'm not sure why he wouldn't expect it.

More pitchers should do that. Quit Facking around and get that ball out of your hand as soon as possible to not give the batter a chance to get comfortable. 

And in turn also take step towards shortening these long a__ games.

The batter does not need forever to get ready.  He didn’t need it back before there was the human rain delay, Mike Hargrove and the human rain delay II, Garciaparra.

This gets me thinking back to when Stu Nahan once years back accidentally called them the Houston A__holes.

Ha ha, I also remember someone saying the Kissimee (sp?) Assholes on a Jim Healy program...I think.

Bregman is great - look past the Robles bickering. He’s engaging, accessible, complimentary of other players, and still intense and competitive. 

The Astros are entering a tricky phase and could wind up vulnerable the next couple years. They’re going to need to transition in their next wave of young talent while hoping those players can produce on the fly, without it affecting their MLB wins. 

Their pitching prospects haven’t fared too well. Guys like Kemp and Reed are on the waiver chopping blocks. Alvarez has been fantastic, Fisher has not.

The state of Texas isn't all that enamored with people named Derek Fisher.

"There hasn't really been a situation where I've really wanted to intentionally walk someone," Hinch told MLB.com. "I thought about doing it with [Christian] Yelich, when we played the Brewers, because he's the best player in baseball right now. I think any time you're adding a baserunner to the mix, you're creating another situation that might not be to your advantage."

Obviously Hinch grew up in Orange County and was one of those people who didn’t know who Mike Trout was.
