    Whatever. I could probably hit a HR against Sonny Gray at this point... Seriously though, it's nice to see the needle continuing to move at least.

    Hopefully he does, but I can't get excited until he has more than 1 good game. Maybe a good week and then I will.

    Forgot about Turner somehow, but still, nobody is doing much underneath Kemp (Grandal is solid outside of BA, but still), so I don't see a ton of reason to drop Muncy down. We'll see how thing shake out obviously, but I really don't see Muncy dropping to a spot that would hurt his value. The really high OBP definitely helps that too.

    Rondon in for a pretty easy save, retiring the Angels in order with 2 K's. I'll say it again. The Astros do not need to trade for a closer.

    It likely won't happen unless Allen blows another 2 or 3 saves or Tito gets fired. Obviously the latter isn't happening, but the former definitely could. The overuse from time to time in the first half seems to have messed him up for the whole season. He's always been a pretty good closer before this season.

    Yeah, he's been too consistently great this season to be concerned about tonight's start. Obviously it was extremely disappointing to see him pitch like that tonight, but he simply didn't have it at all tonight. Some poor luck as well with Lindor failing to be able to get the ball out of his glove in the 5th and Encarnacion not being able to get his glove on a semi-hard grounder earlier, but Bauer was still awful tonight regardless.

    Agreed. Not quite sure why Hinch has insisted on Marwin playing SS this season while Correa is out. Bregman played there plenty when Correa was out last season, hence his eligibility.

    I don't see why they would change the order. They don't have anyone else to put there. The only difference when they face a righty should be Bellinger up to 5th.

    That explains the smell coming from that direction...

    One can only hope since Gsellman has been dreadful. If that continues, then he wouldn't even be worth owning for the few saves he would get unless you have to pick up every closer in a league.

    Because his 4th wasn't any worse than most of his other innings. I know that's a terrible excuse, but with the way the game went, it's a sad truth. I actually had no problem with them bringing him back out for the 5th. They don't overturn a call when there was minimal evidence that he was safe, or Lindor actually makes the play instead of failing to get the ball out of his glove and maybe the inning goes differently. It was beyond obvious that Bauer didn't have it tonight, but the defense didn't do him any favors on a couple of plays (Encarnacion not being able to get yet another grounder hit to him in a game). It is what it is I guess, even though I wasn't even able to finish the 5th inning after Lindor botched being able to throw the ball anywhere. It was obvious that it wasn't Bauer's night. He's been too good for this to be anything more than an unfortunate bump along the road.

    Obviously nothing against you as you're just basically quoting somebody, but Houston doesn't have to play bullpen roulette. They have Hector Rondon, who is already a good closer. Why the Cubs and now possibly the Astros can't just let him keep the job and feel they have to get a bigger name, I don't know. It's not like Rondon has ever deserved that kind of treatment, and there's no guarantee Britton even makes it to the playoffs the way he's gone the last few years. Yes, I own Rondon, but I'd still feel the same way even if I didn't.

    So am I. I'm calling 14 actually. True, but Hand is obviously great and the other guy they got has been solid this season too. Even if it's still not a finished product, they have enough guys now that Bauer leads should be a lot safer even as soon as tonight. Especially considering he usually goes pretty deep into games. He went 5-5 with 3 HRs and you still are finding something to complain about? I'm assuming you're talking about Carpenter, and just take the days worth of stats from one player.

    Go Bauer! Enjoy actually having a bullpen again...
