Talk Zone / Gurriel
« on: June 07, 2019, 03:54:24 pm »
We've all spent lots of bandwidth on Tyler White, but the black hole in the lineup is Gurriel, and this needs to be addressed. JUstice mentioned getting Encarnacion. Don't know if he's the answer, but Gurriel's lack of production (Astros are at the bottom of MLB in first base productivity) needs to be addressed.

Talk Zone / Fondest Memory of Meeting a HOFer
« on: February 06, 2019, 06:19:32 am »
Mine was meeting Dizzy Dean and getting his autograph on my Astros hat that Harry Walker sent to me. Dizzy was in my hometown to broadcast a few innings of the minor league game and meet and greet the fans. Even though I never saw Dizzy Dean pitch, I knew lots of stories about the old Cardinals Gas House Gang because my Dad was a Cardinals fan (furthest team down south for many years). My hometown had a St. Louis Cardinals radio outlet until the Astros came into baseball.

He was friendly and wanted to talk baseball, whicch tickled the shit of me at 12. I could have had him autograph my Aces hat, but I had him sign my Astros hat. He wrote: "Best of luck from Ole Diz." Sadly, because I was probably doing something I shouldn't have been doing (manning a water balloon slingshot at summer camp aimed at girls across the lake), the slingshot recoiled and I ended up in the lake, and the lake swallowed my hat. I was devastated. I swam and looked around for the hat to no avail.

As I recall, Dizzy was dead within about a year of that chance encounter. It's truly one of my most prized memories. It's a connection, however tenuous, to a significant period in baseball.

Talk Zone / Gregerson
« on: September 11, 2017, 02:15:30 am »
What is up with  the usually reliable Luke Gregerson? Is he playing hurt? He's allowed a Fiers-like 11 home runs in 55 1/3 innings.  I've not seen the same bite in his slide piece in most of his appearances this season. He doesn't have big velocity  in his heater, and I think that the hitters are sitting back and waiting for a cement mixer, and I've seen plenty of those.

More troubling though is that I've seen lots of mistake pitches that hitters simply have missed. Gregerson has allowed earned runs in slightly over 20% of his appearances, which seems like a lot for a backend bully guy. His groundball pct. is good at 49.7%, but that's negated by all of the home runs. At 33, is he a descending player?

In my opinion, he's too unreliable right now to use in high leverage situations.

I'll hang up and listen.
