2019 MLB Draft Prep and the Astros

2019 MLB Draft Prep and the Astros

What lessons can be learned from how the Astros have built their ballclub? Carlos Correa. Jose Altuve. George Springer. Lance McCullers. Dallas Keuchel. Yuli Gurriel. Alex Bregman. All were signed to their initial affiliated contract by the Houston Astros. Some were from the draft. Some were from international waters. If you were to put together the excess value created from these names, you would have a whiff of why the Astros are looking so potent now. Even with a major misfire like Mark Appel, they still had plenty of other pieces with which to obtain Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole in...

Game Thread no. 153. Los Angeles Angels at Houston Astros. Sept 22, 2018, 6:10 CDT

Join the Discussion as the Astros continue their drive for the AL West title tonight against the Los Angeles Angels It was a welcome explosion of hitting at home last night, especially by one Yuli Gurriel, whose two homers were the main punch in the Astros 11-3 win over the Angels. But the A’s won too, in walk off fashion in the ninth, so the Astros’ magic number only went down one, to 6 games to clinch the Division. Looks like the Stros are just gonna have to keep on winning, but is there a better way to win a division? Tonight the Ace, Justin Verlander, very hot of late, RHP (16-9,...

Game Recap: Gurriel Powers Astros Over Halos, 11-3

Game Recap: Gurriel Powers Astros Over Halos, 11-3

Cole mows down 12 Angels. It was a Gurriel night. A night of Gurriel power. Pina power. The first two home run night of his Astros career.

His seven RBI were more than enough for the Astros to cruise to victory over the Los Angeles Angels, 7-3. Gurriel put the Astros up 4-0 in the first with a grand slam, just fair and just over the right field fence. It was only the second opposite field home run hit by Yuli in...
