I take it as a good sign. In the past that would have been us. #turningthecorner

It's not just that the Brewers knock the Buccos around more times than not, it's also how they lose when the Pirates could actually benefit from their victory... :evil:

Someone could really get some attention by making a gif of that shot of the Astros bench after the error that was shown on the feed, in which Carlos Corporan and some pitcher just stare at each other with a blank face for a few seconds. Surely sites like Fangraphs would run with it with a "Houston Astros, 2013" title with it.

The bullpen tonight was awesome, once again, holding the astros scoreless the rest of the game to make the comeback possible.

Down 2 runs in the sixth with 2 on and one out and Pedro up. I swear I would have pinch hit. Because he did exactly what we all expected, struke out. You have to put the ball in play in that situation. I am so over him.


amen!


YEP...they need to dump Pedro..worst 3b in the league! :lol:

Just win baby...just win...

And, they are winning as a TEAM...that's what I like.

Everyone at some point mostly in each game is making a positive contribution.

Houston manager Bo Porter said Paredes, who was charged with an error, should have peeled off and let Elmore make the play. Paredes collided with second baseman Jose Altuve on Monday night while chasing a pop fly at Detroit.

''It's not a lack of communication, because there's only one person that should be communicating,'' Porter said. ''The infielder is not saying anything. If he gets underneath the ball, the outfielder is running in and he's looking at the infielder. And if the infielder is waving his hands and under the ball, you let him take the ball.''

Maybe my baseball knowledge is slipping but I thought in a situation like this, that this is the OFer's ball?

Even if it is, the 2B was clearly calling for it and Paredes should have seen it (unless he has MASSIVE tunnel vision).

Whoever's ball it is, let the AAAstros argue over it in-play for the duration of this series. :D
