Astros v. Mariners, September 30, 2015
« on: September 30, 2015, 09:08:57 pm »
Did we mention this is a must win?

As usual, fuck the lineups, gotta get his one...here we go...

Never heard of Zych before, which means over/under on hits is 2.5.

T1:

Altuve...quickly down 0-2...pops out F6
Springer flies out F8
Correa strikes out swinging at a pitch in the dirt in the LH box

Pretty weak first inning against a guy making his first ever start in professional baseball

No score.

Making his first start.  Ever in professional ball.  Which means there's a good chance the Astros get shut out.

T2:

Gattis lines the first pitch into LF
Rasmus carved up on three fastballs right down the center for a swinging strikeout
Gomez singles to RF on the first pitch
Valbuena...3-1...3-2...Valbuena strikes out swinging as Gomez steals 2B
Carter grounds the first pitch to 2B for a 4-3

0 for 2 w/RISP.  Imagine that

No score

Nice try at the reverse jinx, but you have to bring it stronger than that when you're working with Valbuena.

Big out.

Which of course means they won't get the last out of the inning without more hijinks. Seattle 1, Houston 0 on the third defensive miscue of the inning.

They should record that inning and play it back to young professional baseball players "See here youngsters, this is why you don't play wound up too tightly... you have to play much more relaxed to make the plays in this game". Not the best time for the Astros to have tight nerves. Not good at all.

T3:

Castro blown away by fastballs
Altuve pops out F6 on the first pitch...again
Springer with an infield single on a slow roller to SS, and Marte throws it into RF, Springer to 2B on the TE6

That's all for Zych...Guaipe in

Correa...quickly down 0-2...punches out on a belt high hanging curve..


0 for 3 w/RISP, 5 strikeouts.

I want to be careful not to get Chuck wound up here... but why did they take so long to overturn it? Is it that same guy in New York who had his head up his arse on the call last week on Correa's steal? The fact that they finally overturned is not the point (he was clearly out because he left the bag), but sure looks suspicious when they take so long. Are they trying to figure out who they want to screw the most in the Home Office?

Holy fuck...the Astros are begging for reasons not to have to score.

I know' but lots of people think Jeff Beck was the best Yardbird's guitarist.

Some merely think so. Others are quietly secure in the knowledge.

Not defending Carter, but I hate that application of the replay rule.

Eta: although his situation was somewhat different because his lead leg positioning toward the bag approximated a blacked out frat bro trying to stuff a softy in the dark.

T5:

Valbuena homers to RF
Carter...3-1...3-2 on a pitch bouncing in the other batter's box..walks
Castro doubles off the CFer's glove, Carter to 3B...challenge at 3B...out because Carter is a dumbfuck and easily gets to the general vicinity of 3B, but inexplicably slides at some imaginary base instead of the actual bag and has to fumble around to try to find it.  Meanwhile the throw comes in and he's tagged out.

That's it for Guaipe, Kensing in

Altuve doubles to RCF, Castro scores
Springer singles to RF, and Altuve stands there with his thumb up his ass watching the play, and finally makes 3B
Correa...quickly down 0-2...grounds to 2B, and Cano swipes and miss it as it rolls into CF, Altuve scores, Springer to 3B
Gattis, swings at a bouncer, takes a meatball, down 1-2...swings at a pitch 40 feet outside for the punchout.

Kensing out, Rasmussen in

Rasmus strikes out looking at a pitch in his eyes.

The Astros get three runs, while fucking themselves out of two more.  Lead 3-2

Actually, the thing Ashby's been doing that drives me craziest is bitching about Springer drawing too many walks since he came off the DL. Because you want to swing at bad pitches if you've got Correa coming up behind you.

Well, that didn't last long...3-run dinger give the M's a 5-3 lead.

Was Hinch watching the same thing we all were... Kazmir had nothing on his pitches and every one of them were dead red middle of the plate offerings. Batting practice stuff. Why Hinch, why?

While the Astros struggle with the BBs being thrown by Seattle's pitching committee.

Oh, this ain't over. Expect a score in the double digits for both teams. Come get your free batting practice.. come one, come all!

B5:

O'Malley grounds out 4-3
Sweet Jesus singles up the middle
Marte...0-2...1-2...singles to CF, Gomez comes in and can't get it, it gets behind him and Sucre to 3B
Seager hammers the first pitch to the seats in CF...Sucre scores, Marte scores
Cruz hammers  one to the seats in CF...Hinch challenging...not sure why, but blows his one challenge
Cano lines a single to LF

Finally Kazmir out, Fields in

Gutierrez...full count...strikes out swinging
Trumbo...0-2...strikes out swinging

M's get four runs...lead 6-3

O'Malley flies out F8
Sucre singles to LF, his third on the night and fourth on the season, I think
Marte singles to LF, Sucre to 2B

Fields out, Sipp in

Seager pops out F6

Still tied at 6

T7:

Danny Fuckwad on the mound for the M's...

Correa taps out in front of the plate on a pitch that almost hits his face...out 2-3
Gattis triples...naturally...Villar into pinch run
Rasmus, infield in...3-1...flairs one to LF...Villar scores
Gomez...down 0-2...bunts foul at a pitch in his eyes for a strikeout
Valbuena doubles to LF, Rasmus to 3B
Carter strikes out swinging

Astros regain the lead 7-6

B7:

Cruz strikes out swinging
Cano doubles down the RF line, but he legs it into a single
But the next pitch is wild, and Cano moves to 2B
Gutierrez strikes out swinging

Hinch out...gonna leave Sipp in

Trumbo with a roller towards SS,  Valbuena does a good job blocking Correa from having a shot...infield single, Cano to 3B
Miller flies out F9

After seven...7-6 Astros

We went 2.5 innings without changing a diaper or feeding him during the Fiers no hitter. Guilt got the better of me before the 9th, however, and allowed my wife to feed him - not sure which one of you sacrificed the chicken to make up for my transgressions, but I appreciate it nevertheless...

Perez will have to get the 5th out of the inning, thanks to Correa's two errors.

Now Correa. There must be something in the water up there.

I think he still may be wearing those wonder woman underpants. He must of had a super wedgie when he threw the ball. It's the only explanation.

B8:

Will Harris on the hill...defensive changes...Marisnick in LF, Marwin at 1B

O'Malley grounds right to SS, Correa displays some of that UZR and boots it...E6
Sucre...full count...flies out F9
Marte grounds to 2B, O'Malley is out 4-6, but Correa throw the relay into the seats, moves to 2B on the TE6, Correa's second error of the inning

That's it for Harris, Perez in

Seager pops out F5 on the first pitch

Headed to the 9th...7-6 Astros

I'm pretty sure f*ck will be mines first words... Would've bet, however, that it'd've been the result of my watching Baylor football or my wife watching Kentucky basketball (the latter of which I'll certainly attempt to shift the blame to) rather than Astros baseball, but whatever...   In any event, glad Castro didn't f*ck that one up - would've resulted in a wakened baby and my being banned from watching the rest of the game (and a bed on the couch for the evening)...

Gregerson in to try to close it out

Cruz strikes out swinging
Cano bounces one right to SS..oops, shift on, it's another hit for Danny Valen...oops Robinson Cano
James Jones in to run for Cano
Gutierrez, who apparently was unaware he was up, finally gets in the box, and lines to CF, Jones had his head up his ass and Gomez guns him out at 1B!!!

Game over, Astros win 7-6!!

Stand by it. Outside of situation specific match-ups that favor having both of them in the lineup, I would prefer to balance out the high K rate of one in the order by having a better OBP/contact hitter than I would having both Valbuena and Carter. Couldn't be happier that both Carter and Valbuena went deep last night, but it doesn't change my opinion that I'd generally rather have Marwin (or Lowrie if healthy) at 3B when Carter is at first.  Right now, Carter should be in the lineup nearly every game.

It probably helps to know how things turn out.

not really. it makes the statements funnier , though. this team has come back often enough to encourage folks not to give up on them.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

You need to stop reading the next morning and start smacking people in real time.

Wait a second...you have a desktop with a hardwire connection? Isn't Mark an IT guy?  Surely he can drag you into the 21st century.

Boy, is that ever a story. No, but there are related issues not worth discussing here.

When Kazmir gave up the back-to-back jacks, I decided that I had to take one for the team and turn it off. I was afraid that I had already waited too long, but apparently I hit the power button just in time. The good news for the Astros is that I have to go to a party Friday night so I'll miss that game, but they're going to have to overcome me watching them on Saturday and Sunday.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

I do the same thing. I turned it off and followed it on Score and the GZ.

No.  DirecTV does not stream regional sports networks.

Gomez was great last night and you know he isn't full speed. With the exception of the struggling Neshek the pen seems to have found its' second wind.

Never heard a direct explanation, but I assume it was related to his injury.  Might have tweaked it during that AB or earlier in the game.  Or, maybe his head was somewhere else.

I think it's safe to assume he couldn't swing.  I don't think he was that situationally unaware.

I was thinking if he's hurting why is he staying in. Obviously what ever hurt when he swings doesn't he throws. That was a cool was to end the game.

He's clearly in too much pain to swing the bat.  It's amazing to me that his injury prevents him from swinging, but he can run, dive, slide, and throw without any problem at all.  I'm not a doctor, and I've never stayed in a Holiday Inn Express, but it would seem that an injury to such a core muscle would affect more than just swinging.

Not sure of the exact nature and location of the injury, but swinging a bat has a huge upper body rotational component that runner, diving or throwing do not.

It may not be pain as much as risk avoidance.

Gattis with his 11th triple of the season... Wonders never cease... Go 'Stros!

I find it great that we live in a baseball world where the guy with the the team lead in triples get's pinch run for. 
Always ready to go to a game.

When he went from third to the dugout it seemed to me that he was joking with his teammates and pointing at his feet like "I'm the fastest guy on the team!  Why take me out?"

I wonder when was the last time a player went 11+ triples and 27+ homers in the same season.  I thought for sure Curtis Granderson would have done it, but he hasn't.

ETA:  It was 2007 Jimmy Rollins, with 20 triples and 30 homers.  Grady Sizemore went 11 and 28 in 2006 and Nomar went 13 and 28 in 2003.  Gattis is only the 4th person this century to do that.

When was the last time someone had 11+ triples and no stolen bases?

This is one of the best threads of the season, not quite as epic as a Friday beer night from a couple of months ago but still a lot of fun to read.  Nice work guys.

I know there was the whole Beatles/Lynird Skynird thing, but I was a Beatles guy.

This brought back memories of times when one of the local radio stations would run a Beatles v CCR poll it seemed like every weekend.  Beatles always seemed to win but I would have gone CCR if I could be bothered to vote.
