The Astros Mega thread for Cool People

It is too early to get too excited but I do like how the big 5 are hitting.

Tucker? I don’t know what to think yet. He kind of strikes me as a guy that you think is having a bad year and you realize he has 30 HRs.

Starting pitching has been excellent. Bullpen not so much.

Its our pitching that sucks. Disappointed in that.

I don’t know what to make of this team yet. It has pieces I like. We will see what they do out in Seattle this weekend.

Dusty is leaving people in to lose games

I agree. Other than he seems like a nice guy, Dusty hasn’t shown me anything. It reminds me when Bob Lillis was manager. The Flea was a nice guy but won absolutely nothing.

I think they brought him in because the media likes him.

Agreed. I would have preferred that they had Hinch and Luhnow serve their suspension and come back after a year. Boston did it the right way.

I just hope our pitching comes around. I am pleased with Tucker. The rest of the guys want to swing too.

The freaking Rockies!!! How does Dusty Baker have a job. We have the worst bullpen in baseball.

He’s dreadful. Horrible hire. Reeked of fear. They deserve what they get.

For what it’s worth, the bulk of the evidence shows that managers don’t really mean much. The people to be disappointed in are Jim Crane and James Click.

Managing really only matters in pitching. And DB is an old-school style handler of pitchers.

But you’re right about Crane. He buckled under pressure. Lets hope this new guy builds pitching from top to bottom in the system. Pitchers to bring up. Pitchers to develop. Pitchers to trade.

Big lift to see McCullers pitch so well yesterday.

I hope the Astros don’t give up young pitching at the trade deadline.
