1-5 against the reigning AL champs this season.

 

Which uniforms are the Asstros wearing this month?

Not looking good for Venus.  She's down a set and is losing the second set 3-0 (and that included two service breaks).  It's amazing that she even got to the final at her age, though.

WOW, talking smack while the Indians are 13 games behind them now. I'm expecting the Indians to make a bit of a comeback but the Astros currently have the 4th best run differential at this point of the season EVER. Just think they've done this with 4 of their projected starting pitching staff out on IR the majority of the last month and they should all be back possibly by the end of this month. 

They lead MLB in BA, hits, 2Bs, HRs, OBP, Slugging and have a higher team OPS than the 27 Yankees and have scored 50 more runs than the 2nd place team in the AL!!! Plus with all their perceived pitching woes they are 3rd in the AL with a .015 ERA higher than the #1 team. 

This team is truly special and if you are a baseball fan you need to see them whenever they're on a national broadcast. 

Hahahaha, someone got a bit defensive.  You started the smack talk wit the Astros, I'm just pointing out their failures against the Tribe. :P

Oh, eat ######, Girardi! Your bullpen management and your pitching coach and the fact that your entire bullpen ###### blows this year and you want to blame last year's world series?

I don't have time for excuse makers. The Yankees would be the best team in baseball is the game was only 8 innings. That's a ###### joke.

Oh, by the way, Joe Espada, the 3rd base coach...yup, he ###### sucks too! Learn to hold a ###### runner with 1 out, Joe!

Hey Josie and d4rksabre, 

 

in case you two aren't reading the draft thread, I'll ask this here. sabills is the poster you know in real life, right? Would it be possible for one of you to text him and let him know that the drafting game is waiting on him?

Thanks, either way.

I've got a buddy who is a huge Dodgers fan and I feel like I have to hear about this every single year. They've been good, they might be better this year, but they still have yet to do anything in the last 29 years. They're working on 5 division titles in a row and 0 pennants. They need to show up in the playoffs at least once this century.

Puig batting 7-8 in the order.  This team seems to be genuinely better.  They made it to the NLCS last season, so it isn't like they didn't make noise, but they do need to put it all together at some point.  The horses are there........

This trade chaps my ass pretty good as the Red Sox could really have used Frazier and Robertson. The price the Yankees paid was steep and I don't think dumbrowski was willing to part with the kind of assets the Yankees did.

Love this trade for the Yankees. Much more excited about the bullpen help than I am about Frazier honestly. He's a solid rental, and with Torres probably coming up next year and a healthy* Bird, losing him shouldn't hurt at all

Huge, huge trade for the Yankees bullpen. Rutherford doesn't see triple A for 2 more seasons, won't see the bigs for at least 3 more years. I'm cool with the Frazier pick up, a little optimistic, actually. His line drive rate has me thinking he's had a lot of bad luck on balls put in play this year.

I'm not optimistic about Greg Bird at all. I think the Yankees need a long term solution at 1B. The Toddfather could be an option on a 1 year deal. He shouldn't cost too much next year if contracts for power hitters last year are any indication. He's also a good DH option, or Chase Headley insurance. He's more valuable than Matt Holliday because he can play both infield corners.

Speaking of 1-5, said AL champs are 1-5 in their last 6, including their first 4-game losing streak of the season (they were one of five teams who hadn't suffered such a streak at the All-Star break).  D'oh!

Red Sox players embracing their inner masshole.

http://www.bostonglo...ialflow:twitter

Here's the thing. Eckersley has won a World Series, and signs his name with "HOF" at the end. For David Price, or anyone to contend that he doesn't understand the game is idiotic. So what, Eck pointed out that a player's (not Price's, incidentally) bad stats were indeed bad. Grow a pair.

Now, I think Boston should be razed and the earth salted so nothing ever grows again at the best of times, but no matter what team and what what sport for that matter, have a little class. The bad player in question has to know it, so go do something about it.

Darvish apparently. Gray is just such a better option though. We need young pitching, after this season it's even worse than it is now.

It's not getting fixed this year. I don't think they'll entertain the thought of Darvish (whos K rate keeps declining). They might add something small, Like Jamie Garcia or that receiver from Notre Dame.
