Astros are world series bound. lol
only 161 more games to go.
Was watching the game last night and all I could think of was what you said in this post. Boy, CC did not look good last night. I hope you weren't right about him.
Sure looked good last night Dooms. Much to my dismay, just over 50 Mil. LOL.......
Man. This is a case where I want to be wrong.
There is not a lot of pressure on this Astros team, not only lowest payroll but youngest team in MLB with some very good young prospects in the minors. I think Houston has done the right thing by making big investments in the minor league program as opposed to trading off that talent for vet players who end up leaving 1 or 2 years after.
My goodness Astros starting the season by winning the series with the Yankees and the impressive part has been the Astros pitching and the play of Fowler. opening day 2-4 with 2 doubles and last night 2-4 with a triple and a HR
Its being said that CC has lost some velocity - any truth to that?
He left balls hanging. We could have blasted them.
Sounds like Jimeniz for the Orioles 2 nights ago. Belt high, middle of the plate, no movement to speak of. And no surprise hit like the balls were on a tee.
There is truth to that. However, as was discussed earlier. He's learning to throw the cutter and he left it hanging way too often in his first outing.
Did Mo teach him?
Also, Tanaka got pissed after 3rd pitch homerun... Bounced back nicely... Love that about players. The fire is lit!
Very interesting game today with Pineda starting. For the Yankees to have any shot at making the playoffs I think this guy is going to have to have a solid season.
Not too shabby!
He did well.
Too bad the offense has been so putrid.
Sabathia was ho-hum today. Better than in Houston but still could be the worst starter on the staff.
Took game 6 before they actually homered.
Actually, I heard it was from Andy Pettitte and Larry Rothschild. Yeah, Tanaka came back strong and actually, while he lost, Pineda actually threw well in his loss to Toronto. He started slow, giving up 5 hit, and 1 run but really, he gave up 4 in the 1st and 1 the rest of the way. Rocky at first but really came back and threw well after that.
Best that money can buy. Baseball is so screwed up letting teams like the Yankees and Red Sox buy their championships.
No. Pineda was traded for, not bought.
This is very true for last years Sox and 2001 Diamondbacks. Not so much with Yankees. The Core of players won the 4 in 5 years.
LOL, everyone in the world knows that the Yankees buy their championships. Who's had the highest salary by team for the last 15-25 years? Yankess are surely in the top 1-3 every year.
