Talk Zone / Vote Correa!!!
« on: June 28, 2013, 10:31:11 pm »
Okay folks... Correa has 32% of the vote for the final spot in the futures game, but is running behind the frontrunner who has 36% of the vote... Seriously, cast some votes for the kid (VOTE HERE).  Will it help spur you towards voting for Correa if I add that the frontrunner is a FTC prospect?!? Well, he is...

Neither here nor there, but Deadspin breaks down the Annual Congressional Baseball Game for Charity (06/13/13)... Does The Majority Party Have An Advantage In Congressional Ballgame?.

Ben Terris of the National Journal has a great breakdown of the game (fun read): The Most Contested Turf in Congress Isn’t Where You Think

Admit it, you thought I was 'going political' in the Talk Zone...

Talk Zone / Ian Kennedy: Headhunter
« on: June 12, 2013, 04:01:26 am »
Diamondbacks' pitcher Ian Kennedy hits Dodgers' Puig in the face with a 92 MPH fastball. Puig stays on the ground for a couple of minutes before getting in the game. Next inning Dodgers' pitcher Greinke hits Diamondbacks catcher Monterro in the back. Next inning Kennedy sends one up-and-in (moving towards Grienke's head), hitting him in the shoulder. All hell broke loose after that, including a Mattingly body slam...

The brawl video (narrated by Scully) can be seen here.

Talk Zone / Astros and the DP record

Nice read from Appy: Houston Astros Team Double Play Record in Reach

Excerpt: "Last week, I covered Jose Altuve's impressive season turning the double play and how he has a shot to break the team and maybe the AL record.  Today, let's look at the double play from a team perspective. *** "

The Bus Ride Discussion Forum / New Astros Top 10?!?
« on: June 09, 2013, 02:35:57 pm »
So... presuming the Astros sign their first 5 picks from the 2013 draft, how would you rank the Astros Top 10 prospects now?  For me, it changes every time I think about it, but for the moment (and it will likely change immediately after I hit 'post'), I think it goes like this:

1. Correa
2. Appel (2013 Draft)
3. Springer
4. Singleton
5. Foltynewicz
6. Cozart
7. McCUllers, Jr.
8. DeShields, Jr.
9. Tropeano
10. Thurman (2013 Draft)

Thoughts?
