Yeah, I’m thinking, if he doesn’t step up, let him walk. We have other guys who can pitch to a .500 record.

He could win the CYA again and I'd still let him walk. Let someone else overpay for his decline years.

Kind of like as a Nats fan how I feel about Bryce Harper. If you can't win with him anyways, let some other sucker pay him $35 to $40 million and completely ruin their immediate future. At least Keuchel actually won the Astros something meaningful!

While it seems like he's been around forever, Harper's still just 25. Less than two years older than Alex Bregman. Keuchel will be 31 when his new contract starts next year. The Nats are silly if they let Harper walk at 26.

The Astros need to keep Altuve (who they have under a longterm deal now), Correa, Springer and Bregman before pitchers in their 30s.

Finally, an Astros victory. McCullers pitched a gem last night in Seattle. Houston finally came through offensively after a week-long slump.

We're scoring runs - heading into tonight's game our Pythagorean W-L is 12-6, one game better than our actual 11-7 - but nobody is hitting the ball particularly well with any degree of consistency, and we're scoring a lot of runs in blowouts typicallly followed by an offensive no-show the next day. Even Altuve has only two extra-base hits - both doubles - in 70 ABs.

Altuve finally has his first home run of the season. Took him 101 at-bats.

Houston wins a home series for the first time since the San Diego series. Got an 8-4 win today vs Oakland.

Why did Hinch bring in Giles in the 9th? Seems like a longish reliever would’ve made more sense, since extra innings were likely. Even another inning from Verlander would’ve made better sense. Frustrating outcome for the Astros.

Giles is like Brad Lidge in so many ways. An overpowering fastball, and a slider that has a tendency to hang or flatten out, that gets crushed.
