Does Greinke have a shot at Gold Glove?


Don't know. But I do know El Caballo does not.

Thank you Carlos (granted Prince wouldn't have had it either).

The Astros showing how bad teams find ways to help the other team score runs (wild pitch, bad run-down, poor defense)

You can't fight human nature I guess.

OK, calling it right now: 18-0 win, Greinke no-hitter.

I was going to write "way to go, you've jinxed it, now we'll only score 10 runs during Greinke's no-hitter"

It's okay to throw fastballs against this garbage offense, Zack.

Projecting forward from that graphic, Greinke will have a 40+ pitch inning in the 4th.

Greinke clearly knows he needs to keep his pitch count down. Nothing like a run down for the third out.

These games are honestly tough to watch. The Astros are pathetic.

This Astros team reminds me of the Brewers in the early days of the Ned Yost era. ('cept there is no Ben Sheets type talent to unnecessarily bring up too early and then proceed to wear out his arm in meaningless games)

I'm actually entertaining the thought that Roenicke is a genius and it was wise to rest Hairston for the Cardinals series

btw - how awful of a day is it for a pitcher when you walk Craig Counsell?

And yet, because the Astros split a 4-game series at STL while the Crew was beating the Cubs, the Brewers have a 3 game lead instead of being only 1 up.

Did Pence ad Bourn matter that much?

Marlins take a 1 - 0 lead in the 3rd.

yeah, but again, the Astros & Umpires cheated in that series. Please try to keep up

It was good timing that the Cards faced the Astros when they still hadn't sold off and given up on the season. I'm sure it made a difference.

Lawrie just went deep for career HR #1. Nice power stroke to right-center field.

Is Lyles really considered that big of a prospect? 3.49 ERA and 1.293 WHIP in his minor league career as compared to Sheets' 2.88 career minor league ERA. Sheets had a 2.40 ERA at the age of 21 in the minors. Of course Lyles is only 20 years old right now and pitching in MLB so I guess I can see the point that he's been rushed but I don't see him as a Sheets type talent

I think the point is rushed up, eating up service time for no reason and putting unnecessary wear and tear on his arm.
