I guess we can't expect competent base running when most of the players haven't had  the pleasure yet this season.

Three base runners thrown out. Refdick got fucked on that one. Challenge was past the 30 second deadline, then replay showed he was safe. Overturning that is absurd. I fucking hate replay.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

If everyone else would just strike out instead of hit into a double play we'd be in better shape.

Not really surprising if they're going to call pitches like that last one strikes.

Astros leave the bases loaded in the 8th. Still looking for the first RBI from the 2, 3, 5 or 6 hole.

That sucked, that pitch was below the zone and Moss still went down and got it.

Gurriel has been abysmal and doesn't have an MLB track record of success to his credit. Marwin should be provided the majority of the ABs/1B starts until Gurriel earns them.

Problem is, you can say the same about Bregman/3B

He's 32 years old and these games count. I'm not giving up on him by any means, but players succeeding should be rewarded with playing time, not the guys with the biggest contracts. Marwin will take more ABs in the near term rotating in for both Bregman and Gurriel until they get going, and I'm fine with that, but I'd like to see Marwin playing most days until they actually do.

I agree that you have to keep Marwin's bat in the lineup. If that's at the expense of Gurriel, then so be it.
