Is there a reason warning track width shouldn’t be standardized?
Thank you!
Nothing worthwhile comes without pain, ask any Astros fan.

No reason to standardize them.

Yup. Baseball is not “standardized”

That’s why we like it.

Fields have differing amounts of foul territory, different ground rules, umps have different strike zones, baseballs have different seams,  Coach has different levels of WFW to use.  It's what makes baseball great.
Always ready to go to a game.

Exactly right. Quite a panic reaction because Springer did not know where he was and could not hear his teammates’ assurances. Players have hit walls for generations, and the fields are never at fault. Your point about differing amounts of foul territory is especially good.

and some umps have different strike zones in the same at bat. Hope the robot umps never take over.

Tags:  George Springer was diagnosed with a mild concussion yesterday, Luhnow says. He will miss a few games but they hope to have him back by early next week once he is cleared medically.

For a pec injury?

Darn.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

Correa, Pressly, Springer, James, Peacock, McHugh, Osuna, Greinke

How will they perform if we get to October?

Tucker, your chance is now. This is the last one until 2020.

Why? No fence to run into, gradual slope, embarrassment from falling down might injure pride. Twisted ankle? I suppose that is possible. I liked The Hill but really like what the Astros did with CF.

Fences are the issue for hurting OFers.

Right. I still have nightmares about a denial league play from about 25-30 years ago. I was pitching, and a nemesis (this fuckwad hit me hard in every league we ever played in from little league past high school) hits a forkball that stayed up  a ton to RF, where they had a very short fence. The RF, who really was a middle infielder, went back on the ball and thought that he had a shot at it. He flipped over the fence and broke his neck. MIraculously, he wasn't paralyzed, but his denial league and sports undertakings were over for life. I felt so badly because the CF was screaming at him to stop, but he didn't. That was his first (and, ironically, last) game playing right field since early in high school. He was only out there because he volunteered when our right fielder didn't show. As for the hitter, I never threw him another strike in his life. As far as I know, he's about 60 and still toiling in the denial leagues.

I'm not sure McHugh or Peacock will be able to pitch at all in September.  Anybody heard anything on them this week?

I would like to hear Hinch talk about Greinke. One bad pitch cost him 3 runs and the loss, but he gave up several rockets which were caught, and his two out problem is bad.

AJ Hinch says George Springer definitely not playing tonight or tomorrow. George is in concussion protocol, so he has to be medically cleared by doctors. AJ says there's a chance we could see Springer in this series, but he's taking it day-by-day.

Pressly: throwing off the mound tmw
Peacock: will throw some tmw
McHugh: has not thrown yet; will be on similar schedule as Peacock
Correa: has hit,  done some cardio; AJ will hit grounders to him today

Watching George in the dugout was very reassuring.  He certainly didn't look like someone who had a concussion.  He looked like regular George, kidding around with everyone around him.  Obviously, this is not a medical diagnosis, but it made me feel better. 
Boom!

He was wearing Reddick's shirt and who knows for pants.

Chandler Rome tweets:

The Astros are targeting this weekend in Kansas City for Brad Peacock to throw off the mound for the first time.

Meanwhile, Collin McHugh is still not throwing. "That's a little bit of bad news," A.J. Hinch said. "We would have hoped he was a little further along."

A.J. Hinch said it is possible that Carlos Correa will "factor into" Triple-A Round Rock's playoff series that begins on Friday. Correa is "building endurance" and continuing his baseball activities.

Yuli Gurriel said he ran at 85 percent today. A.J. Hinch hit him some ground balls during pregame warmups. Hinch said Gurriel will repeat that pregame routine tomorrow and the team will “see how he fits” into this series against the A’s

Lance McCullers Jr. is throwing off a mound today for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery. He'll only get about halfway up the slope and will likely throw only fastballs.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"
