Kaplan article on Brantley:

Confirms what my impression of him has been thus far:  even keel, professional.

Talk Zone / Old Program
« on: January 26, 2019, 11:00:17 pm »
My wife was going thru some things at her parents home and came across an Astros program from April 7, 1993.  Neither of us remember it,  or even why we were in Houston that day (that was our junior year at Southwestern).  But we definitely went,  as evidenced by my scorecard and some photos she found of her outside the Dome (her first/only trip there).

Final (10)
Phillies 6
Astros 3

Pete Harnisch left with a 3-1 lead after 7, but Doug Jones gave up a single and a HR in the 8th, and Philly batted around in the 10th.

Bagwell had 2 doubles and Gonzales hit 2 dingers.

Baseball reference says Steve Finley had 2 assists; it was fun finding them on my card.  Both 8-2.


Attendance was 16,471 per my wife's note at the top of the card.

Talk Zone / NLDS

Really time in Milwaukee:

1 hit thru 9, down 2 zip,  Rockies get back 2 back hits.

Then a ball down the RF line initially ruled an automatic double,  but replay says foul.

Talk Zone / 2018 AL West Division Champs
« on: September 26, 2018, 01:28:15 am »
The Mariners staged a 2-out rally in the 9th against Blake Treinen to tie the game,  then won it in the 11th on a 2 run homer.

This the division title is clinched.

What a gritty performance by this year's Astros.

Plan is for locker room celebration after this afternoon's game. American flag speedos and incoherent Sparks interviews for all!

Verlander gets a K, hits Fernandez on the hand to end a 14 pitch AB (Marte replaces Fernandez, Trout flies out, last hitter
flies out.

In the bottom of the inning Springer flies out,  Altuve takes back 4 way high for a strike then flies out to the track in right,  Brendan hit in retaliation,  Marwin Ks.

No score

Talk Zone / Correa article in The Athletic

Apologies for the unwieldy link.   Found the article via an app and didn't see a more succinct url.

Nothing too insightful,  mostly charts confirming what we've all seen. And some analytic stats that I've never heard of.

Before May 5: .311/.379/.511
Since May 5: .207/.298/.343

I agree with the notion that it'll probably be 2019 before we see good Correa again.
