I am SO fucking tired of Tony Sipp and his shit work against lefties.

And his shit work against righties.
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.

With Sipp in does it feel like Hinch has thrown in the towel on this game?

Yes.

Attabioy Correa...take strike 3 with bases loaded. Next pitch Beltran pops up to end the innging. Way to earn it.

I am so disgusted with this team right now.

This offense is daunted not vaunted. They may not score runs but they are offensive.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

I wish I were surprised, but this is a .500 team until proven otherwise.

The silver lining is that we didn't stay up until midnight watching this (today).

Precisely.  4-4.

I know Altuve and Correa will ultimately get it going.  Bregman, too.  I'm worried about Beltran (turns 40 this month), Reddick (multi-year deal after poor 2016), and Gurriel (this has got me really worried - expensive multi-year deal for 1b who bats 9th and who we don't expect to hit home runs.  Huh?).  Always knew Gattis was very streaky.

If Beltran hits more than .220 with more than 10 HRs I'll be shocked.

That would be a calamity. The Astros sure do get a lot of credit and buzz for their so far unrealized potential. I worry that Jeff Luhnow has yet to make an acquisition that moves the needle. I also was confused that there were no staff changes in the off-season. I hope they make these conversations look silly, of course. They probably will.

So 8 games in;

2 spot - 1 RBI
3 spot - 0 RBI
4 spot - 2 RBI (both on Opening Day)
5 spot - 0 RBI
6 spot - 2 RBI.

That's a grand total of 5 runs batted in almost 200  at bats.

The McCann deal looks good, and Martes+Marisnick(+ more) for Cosart looks like a fucking heist.
I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, torture of Bud Selig.

I'm not worried about this team hitting. I do worry about Gurriel, but if he can't cut it, there's plenty waiting in Reed/White/Tucker/etc. to take his spot.

Good lord that's horrific. Of course it would be helpful if the bottom of the order was getting on base to be driven in when the middle-of-the order is up. Don't know the stats on that but it's probably not a good number either.

The on-base percentages of 1,2,3 are .306, .257, and .258 respectively.  I'm more concerned about them.

But since you pondered, Gurriel .125, Reddick .261, Marwin .409, Aoki .357, Marisnick .300.
Goin' for a bus ride.
