Astros punch out Tigers 6-3. Hold off late rally

Astros punch out Tigers 6-3. Hold off late rally

Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports Cole dominates. Bregman smashes 31st HR. Perhaps one might hope that when the best team in baseball plays the worst team in baseball, that the best team would win every game in a four game series. Well, the Astros did lose a game, and although a sweep seemed tantalizingly close, as Meatloaf would say, three out four ain’t bad. Gerrit Cole was as outright filthy dominant tonight as Justin Verlander was last night, except no home runs. No runs, period. In seven innings Cole allowed only two hits, one walk, and fanned twelve. Having missed two starts due to...

Is Zack Greinke already a Hall of Famer?

Is Zack Greinke already a Hall of Famer?

Photo by Bob Levey/ Taking a look at Greinke’s HOF odds if he retired today You guys may remember that Theo took a look at Justin Verlander’s Hall of Fame odds, and obviously their statistical profile’s have a lot of similarities - even to the strange fact that they have IDENTICAL 3.35 ERA’s across their careers. So we’ll take a similar approach, looking at if Greinke’s career ended today, He’s certainly come a long way from his 4th place Rookie of the Year campaign fifteen years ago, but is he already Hall-worthy?

Verlander dominant, but mistakes cost Astros in 2-1 loss to Tigers

Photo by Bob Levey/ Astros’ ace tosses complete game against former club The Houston Astros were huge favorites—possibly one of the biggest of in MLB history—when they hosted the Detroit Tigers Wednesday night. The Astros had one of the frontrunners in the American League Cy Young race on the hill and a .750 winning-percentage at Minute Maid Park this season. The Tigers had an opener scheduled to throw just three innings, and Detroit planned to follow him with a reliever who entered the night with an ERA near seven. Both pitchers the Tigers planned to “open” the game with were...

Game 125 Preview: Tigers at Astros

Game 125 Preview: Tigers at Astros

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports Hey man, I’m just here for the VerHagen. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m excited for a game of Tigers baseball. Today, aces will square off on the mound, as the two-headed monster of Daniel Norris and Drew VerHagen will take on the American League Cy Young award favorite and Detroit Tigers legend Justin Verlander. There isn’t a ton to be said about Verlander other than wow. His 2.81 ERA is second-best in the American League behind Rays ace and former Astro Charlie Morton (2.77). Verlander’s one weakness comes from the long ball. He allows...
