Dodgers: Comparing the Rosters of the Astros and Dodgers

The first and only two teams that have reached the 60 win mark are the Houston Astros and your Los Angeles Dodgers. Even more remarkable is that both achieved this point before the All-Star break. All these teams do is win, and that is why we may be seeing this clash of the titans come […] Dodgers: Comparing the Rosters of the Astros and Dodgers - Dodgers Way - Dodgers Way - LA Dodgers News, Rumors and Scores

Series Preview: Orioles (46-49) vs. Astros (63-32)

After bursting back to life with a four-game sweep of the Rangers, the Orioles will look to keep the good vibes flowing over the weekend versus the Houston Astros. The Orioles will also be looking to conclude their ten-game home stand on a high note before hitting the road for a six-game road swing. While they looked to be in vintage form over their current four-game win streak, they’ll have their work cut out in replicating that form against the AL’s best and the second-best team in the bigs this […] The post Series Preview: Orioles (46-49) vs. Astros (63-32) appeared first on...

Orioles-Astros series preview: A tougher team from Texas arrives

Orioles-Astros series preview: A tougher team from Texas arrives

The Orioles just beat up on a struggling Rangers team. Next up, the AL-best Astros, a much tougher opponent to measure up against. The Orioles have spent the past four days picking up steam against the reeling Rangers. They'll still be facing a team from Texas this weekend, but it's going to be the Houston Astros this time. That won't be quite so easy a task: The Astros have the best record in the American League. They have been laying waste to just about everybody. Houston is not 63-32 by accident. That is a .663 winning percentage for the Astros, and if they keep to that pace, they will...

Baltimore Orioles: Could the Astros leave town with a new closer?

The Baltimore Orioles vs. Houston Astros series could not come at a more unusual time. The Baltimore Orioles have one of the best closers in the business. And, the Astros are rumored to want one, specifically the one named Zach Britton.

Is Collin McHugh the missing piece in the Houston Astros’ rotation?

The news surrounding the Houston Astros the past few weeks has been about acquiring a starting pitcher. While there are a handful of talented pitchers available, Sonny Gray, Jeff Samardzija and Justin Verlander to name a few, the cost of adding a player of this caliber would be expensive. Teams looking to trade for a […] The post Is Collin McHugh the missing piece in the Houston Astros’ rotation? appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

How long could the Houston Astros survive without Carlos Correa?

In tonight’s game against the Seattle Mariners, Houston Astros‘ star Carlos Correa left with an apparant thumb injury. Reports are that Correa will be re-evaluated tomorrow. Hopefully for both Correa and Houston’s sake, the injury isn’t anything more than just a sprain. If the results are any worse, could the Astros continue to succeed without […] The post How long could the Houston Astros survive without Carlos Correa? appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Twins 4, Astros 2: Victory at last against the Houston Astros

Twins 4, Astros 2: Victory at last against the Houston Astros

We did it! In a night where Dodgers rookie Cody Bellinger hit for the cycle, and the Yankees and Red Sox duked it out for 16 innings, the Minnesota Twins pulled off perhaps the most impressive feat of them all: beating the Houston Astros. For the second straight night, Brian Dozier led off the ballgame with a big fly. And, for the second straight night, the Astros quickly reclaimed the lead, with Yuli Gurriel doubling in Carlos Correa in the 2nd, and Jose Altuve stroking a solo Johnson in the 3rd. But the Twins weren’t done! They loaded the bases with none out in the 5th and tied it on a...
SF Giants trade rumors: Astros doing ‘background work’ on Jeff Samardzija

SF Giants trade rumors: Astros doing ‘background work’ on Jeff Samardzija

The Giants probably don’t want to get rid of Samardzija just to dump his salary, but if another team wants to overpay ... There was a Pablo Sandoval rumor earlier on Saturday. This is all the coverage of that rumor that you’ll receive. If the Giants actually sign him to a major-league contract, well, I’ll eat some Well, I’ll be very, very surprised, that’s what. However, this is a trade rumor worth paying attention to: The Houston Astros are reportedly kicking the tires on Jeff Samardzija. Sources: #Astros doing background work on Jeff Samardzija as trade...

What should the Houston Astros do with Derek Fisher?

Usually when a Major League Baseball team has large a lead in their division they can afford to keep their better prospects in the minors a little while longer. The Houston Astros somewhat fall into this category. They currently have a 16 1/2 game lead in the American League West. It would seem that a […] The post What should the Houston Astros do with Derek Fisher? appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Crooked numbers doom Atlanta Braves in loss to Houston Astros

On Wednesday, the Atlanta Braves out-homered the high-octane Houston Astros offense. They also managed to lose the game by six runs. Fresh off a 16-4 Fourth of July beat down, the Atlanta Braves turned to southpaw Jaime Garcia in hopes of salvaging a series split against the AL West-leading Astros.

Braves bludgeoned by Astros in 10-4 loss to complete mini-sweep

Braves bludgeoned by Astros in 10-4 loss to complete mini-sweep

Two days, two blowout losses. Independence Day wasn’t kind to the home team at SunTrust Park and, 24 hours later, a similar result fell on the Atlanta Braves. For the second straight night, the Houston Astros scored in double-figures and, in short, that was not a recipe for success in a 10-4 defeat. The evening began in ominous fashion, with Jaime Garcia allowing three singles in the first four batters as the Astros took a 1-0 lead. From there, it was radio silence on both sides until the fifth frame, when the fireworks started in earnest. Houston produced four hits, including two...

Game Thread 7/5: Braves vs. Astros

Join us for some Wednesday night baseball. Good evening! The Atlanta Braves complete their “first half” home schedule on Wednesday night at SunTrust Park and the opponent is a difficult one. That was on display when the Houston Astros bludgeoned the home team on Independence Day but there is still time to even the score in game two. The pitching advantage, if anything, might favor Atlanta, with Houston’s Joe Musgrove struggling mightily this season. Jaime Garcia has been woeful in the recent past but, hopefully, the home cooking provided by the quick holiday series will be just what...

The Astros (56-27) rebounded from an opening-game thrashing to take two out of three from the Yankees.  David Paulino got popped for PEDs and solidified Francis Martes’s slot in the rotation until pretty much everyone returns from injury.  Morton […]

Aaron Sanchez healthy after rehab outing in Buffalo, “ready to go” face the Astros

Aaron Sanchez healthy after rehab outing in Buffalo, “ready to go” face the Astros

Sanchez credited with the loss but achieved what he set out to do in Buffalo. Aaron Sanchez faced only one batter over the minimum through his first three innings in his rehab outing on Sunday for the Buffalo Bisons. Although the Syracuse Chiefs batters got to him in the fourth inning, scoring three runs on four hits in a 26-pitch frame, both he and Bisons manager Bobby Meacham were satisfied with the results and both felt that Sanchez would be ready to pitch against the Houston Astros in five days. Sanchez’s boxscore line reads that he went 4.1 innings, having given up four earned runs...

Houston Astros need to trade for Sonny Gray before it is too late

With baseball’s trade deadline less than a month away, teams are starting to prepare for the festivities. For some reason the majority of the in-season moves happen closer to the trade deadline expiration date (July 31st), even though potential buying teams have acknowledged needs. Currently, the Houston Astros fall into this category. Even though the […] The post Houston Astros need to trade for Sonny Gray before it is too late appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.
