Wow! What a week for the Astros. They will be sending five players to this year's All-Star Game on the 11th.

And this following play was what ended Saturday night's thriller against the Yankees. Absolutely insane.

That's a pretty good play, but that is absolutely atrocious base running from Gardner too. I'm surprised that didn't get touched upon more.

And the thing is, Astros players are quick to catch people's mistakes, and Correa acted quickly after cutting off Reddick's throw.

Houston at the half: 60 wins, most runs scored in the majors, and the fewest strikeouts (offensively).

An exciting second half lies ahead. Will be fun!

The Astros continue to roll. They fended off a late Baltimore rally after they started the game strong, but Houston got the win, 8-7.

July 30 is fast approaching and it's Hall of Fame time. Jeff Bagwell will finally be enshrined, and that's a great class he's going in with this year.

And the trade deadline is the next day. We may know before then what pitcher(s) the Astros might trade some prospects for. That's also the day I get to head for Houston and Minute Maid Park (where the Astros get the Rays that night). I only get to go to MMP once a year. The last four times I was at the yard, the 'Stros had won every single game.

So, what do you think about the Astros lack of movement at the trade deadline? I'm disappointed, but glad to know we still have our best prospects and now Fischer in LF. Still worried about our current state of pitching, especially the bullpen. They are overworked!

Well, actually, if you believe they didn't have the "big" deal, then that's understandable. There just wasn't going to be a big haul without sacrificing the ranch and the Cadillac. They did pull off a trade with Toronto, trading Nori Aoki for Francisco Liriano. He's lefthanded and he'd been a starter before. Hinch wants to use him in the bullpen for now, but he could spot start later on in the year. Our issue now with the pitching is just keeping everyone injury-free, and McCullers just went back on the DL. Feliz left last night's game with a problem in his shoulder.

What I'd like to see are more complete games from the starters. Yeah, I know what people are going to say, but if a pitcher has his pitch count stay down into the ninth inning, then he's got a shot at it. Every now and then, a starter is going to need one.

Great comeback / walk-off win for the 'Stros last night. Now, they take to the road for the next eight.

Yeah, that was a big win. Remaining schedule is fairly easy. Need to get healthy for a World Series run.

Woof! What a disaster the last 2 weeks have been. Luckily they built up that sizeable lead, but they are not in a good place right now. Think they should be going after Verlander.......................hard. You got a young roster, but just ask the Nats about the "we'll be in this position for years to come with this roster" and how it plays out scenario. 5 years later they are still looking for their first playoff series win. Prospects are good, but winning championships are better, and if Verlander helps the Astros win the World Series, nobody will care if Fisher ends up with 800 career home runs. Just like no Cubs fans care about how Gleybar Torres career winds up, because Chapman won them a championship.
