Houston Astros: What a Garrett Stubbs call-up to the bigs could look like

Top Houston Astros prospect Garrett Stubbs has been called up after an injury to Max Stassi. What should a Stubbs call-up look like? Let’s examine.

Garrett Stubbs called up!

Taking a look at our recent call-up Garrett Stubbs Happy Birthday Garrett Stubbs!! Unfortunately last night, Max Stassi had some knee discomfort while running to 1st base. On the good news side of it, this opened a spot for Garrett Stubbs to get his first call up to the Major Leagues. Let’s take a step back and look at who Garrett Stubbs is: Stubbs was a collegiate catcher for the USC Trojans, winning the PAC-12 Defensive player of the year, Baseball America’s First Team All-American, Rawlings First-Team All-American, Jewish Sports Review’s College Baseball All-American, and the...

Houston Astros: Justin Verlander is among tops on an interesting MLB list

Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander is pitching one of his best seasons yet, even at 36-years-old. He’s among tops on an interesting MLB list. Look. The Houston Astros are on the brink of sweeping the Boston Red Sox, the defending champs in what was a blockbuster of a game to watch last night.  After a […] Houston Astros: Justin Verlander is among tops on an interesting MLB list - House of Houston - House of Houston - A Houston Sports Site - Texans, Rockets, Astros, Dynamo, Cougars and More!

Astros: Max Stassi injured and Garrett Stubbs called up

Astros’ catching prospect Garrett Stubbs just got one heck of a birthday gift. He’s been called up to replace the injured Max Stassi as the backup catcher. Stassi left the game prior to the fifth inning of last night’s Astros victory over the Boston Red Sox. He apparently stepped on first base awkwardly while running […] Astros: Max Stassi injured and Garrett Stubbs called up - Climbing Tals Hill - Climbing Tals Hill - A Houston Astros Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Aledmys Diaz - our SUPER utility player

Aledmys Diaz - our SUPER utility player

Taking a look at our new Super Utility Player’s turn around to the season and comparing him to his peers. Last night, when Diaz hit the double in the bottom of the 9th, I paused for a second thinking back of his rocky start to the season and how he has endeared himself to fans. I mean, after his first 2 games, he was 0-7 with 3k’s and 2 official errors (Bill pointed out that 4 easily could have been credited to him), causing an initial panic wondering why LOSENOW had not re-signed Marwin. We wrote an article: Aledmys Diaz: Is he really this bad? which has some truly amusing comments...

Astros Prospect Report: May 25th, 2019

See how the prospects performed last night! Another day of minor league action in the books. See the results below. AAA: Round Rock Express (29-19) won 11-5 (BOX SCORE) Perez has struggled this season and it didn’t go very well last night either. He lasted just 4.1 innings allowing 3 runs, 2 earned. The offense came to play though with Stubbs putting them on the board with a 2 run HR in the 3rd inning. In the 4th, they scored 5 runs on a Reed 2 run HR, Tanielu RBI single, and RBI walks from Straw and Alvarez. They added 4 more runs in the 6th on De Goti and Tucker back-to-back HRs and...

Astros walk it off in the 9th, Carlos Correa the hero

In a game that took six innings to push across a run, the Astros overcame a blown save to notch another series victory with a walk-off hit by Carlos Correa. It was Saturday night baseball in Houston, Texas. The temperature outside was a perfect 73 degrees, but the roof was closed. Over 40,000 fans packed […] Astros walk it off in the 9th, Carlos Correa the hero - Climbing Tals Hill - Climbing Tals Hill - A Houston Astros Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Game Recap: Astros Blow Ninth Inning Lead, Snatch 4-3 win on Correa Walk-off Hit.

Brad Peacock’s strong six shutout innings results in no-decision in Astros win. Can a pitcher get a win at the same time as he gets a blown save? I mean, is it fair, when the closer blows the lead that the starting pitcher struggled for six innings to hand him, to then be rewarded with the W. The answer is, somehow, yes, as counter-intuitive as that seems. I’ve always hated that rule of scoring games, and yet tonight, somehow, it feels right. Roberto Osuna, who holds the Astros record for most consecutive saves without a blown save, was sent into the game in the ninth inning to preserve...

Astros Trending Bi-Weekly Review. May 11th - May 25th. Pitching.

All the pitching stats that’s fit to print! Yesterday we covered the last two weeks of Astros Batting. Today we cover the pitching stats. With yesterday’s victory over the Red Sox the Astros are now 34-18 for the season, a .654 winning percentage. Team Pitching Compared to the previous two week period the Astros have improved in almost every category, both starters and relievers. They are still second overall to the Rays in ERA, but closing in (the rays are still .50 better). But advanced stats predict regression for the Rays, they have a low 11.2 HR/FB ratio, and in xFIP and SIERA...

What the Fisher roster move tells us about the injuries

What the Fisher roster move tells us about the injuries

Per Jake Kaplan’s Twitter, the Astros will call up Derek Fisher to replace George Springer, who’s out anywhere from ten days to two months with a hamstring. Before going into a rage, let me explain why this is absolutely great news. You think Fisher is replacing Springer, but he’s actually replacing José Altuve, who, based on the Fisher call-up, should be back soon. Huh?! Has Exile gone crazy? Is he drinking from the same soup as Boyce and Trips? Altuve’s replacement was Corbin Martin, meaning that when he went down on May 12th, he was replaced with an 8th BP arm. Since then, the...
