Talk Zone / Anyone Headed to LA for Game 2?
« on: October 22, 2017, 03:29:52 pm »
Trying to figure out travel plans to catch at least one game, but the logistics for all of them suck.  Game 2 (Verlander start) in LA is a possibility, but I'd be going solo to that one which I'm generally 'meh' about. Curious about how many OWA folks are heading to the Tuesday game in LA / where you are sitting / if there were still StubHub seats nearby (went to game 1 in 2005 and was glad I had another HOU fan with me in the sea of CWS fans).  Feel free to post or DM me if you're going to game 2.

Talk Zone / Take out slides...
« on: October 10, 2015, 10:52:48 pm »
Just saw the Utley slide into Tejada tonight (sending Tejada out on the cart). Reminded me a bit of the Gregorius (NYY) slide into Altuve the other night. Which made me curious, what are the rules (written or unwritten) for whether or not a take out slide is appropriate?

I'm going with birthright... In any event, my son Jackson Street was born on 7/25/15 (8.0 pounts, 20.5 inches).  He and Jen are doing great! 

And before you ask, yes, I'm binding that right arm (who'd've known that they actually have a thing for that, swaddling I think they call it...), and have taken him to his first baseball game (where he experienced his first team mascot photobombing...)!

Two Astros MiLB'ers make the US Team Roster

Mark Appel, RHP
Career Transactions: Selected by Astros in first round (first overall) of 2013 draft.
Background: The No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 draft hasn’t dominated any level of the minors (career 5.36 ERA), but the former Stanford ace shows three plus pitches in some starts.
What To Watch For: Appel more consistently locates his mid-90s fastball these days, but feel for his slider and changeup can be elusive, leading to the occasional big inning.

Tony Kemp, 2B
Career Transactions: Selected by Astros in fifth round of 2013 draft.
Background: Kemp is one of the shortest players in the game, but that hasn’t slowed down his ascent to Houston. The Southeastern Conference player of the year at Vanderbilt in 2013, he has hit .315 as a pro.
What To Watch For: Kemp’s versatility is as important as his hitting ability. He’s not spectacular at any defensive position, but he can handle center field, left field and second base.


No Astros MiLB'ers on the World Team Roster (although that doesn't surprise me, as IIRC there can be a max of two players representing each MLB franchise), though Corpus Christi manager Rodney Linares is on the World Team staff (per Berman tweet).

Conrad Gregor, a Houston Astros prospect currently playing for the Quad Cities River Bandits, unintentionally gave a souvenir to his father, who was attending Saturday's game.

And though not nearly that cool, I ended up with a decent souvenir this weekend as well...

Yup, not a typo!

Anyway... looks like San Antonio will be the venue (semi-central'ish location for the families) in mid-August...  We'll be there next month for the NCAA tourney rounds 2-3 and are going to scout out some locations.

If anyone has recommendations or knows someone who might, I'm all ears...
