Royals @ Astros Series Preview

submitted by Bench   It’s wonderfully early in the season, which means we can believe that the quality pitching will continue but that the bats will somehow turn around.  It could happen, so we might as well indulge ourselves.  Sadly, “it could happen” is always the dark side of the coin that the Royals represent.  [...]

Goose Eggs

I’m sure there must be good reasons for these moves. Must be…

Chapman FTW!

It's unlikely, but the Astros can take the series with a win today.

Astros @ Rangers

(submitted by austro)   Thank You, Sir! May I Have Another? Houston Astros (4-6) @ Texas Rangers (4-5)   The Astros generally fare poorly in Arlington at Whatever-It’s-Called-Today Ballpark-or-Stadium-or-Field, and given the recent performance of their wet noodle bats, there’s not much reason for optimism this time around, either. On the other hand, they’re playing [...]

Astros Break Out the Lumber; Pop Jays 6-4

The Astros had as many strikeouts as hits, but they were 2-4 with RISP and only left four on the sacks.

Blue Jay Way Better, Kinda

Harrell took the loss but wasn't his usual awful self, not saying he was good.

It’s All Cosart’s Fault.

Angels 9, Astros 1 W: Weaver, L: Cosart recap I know it is early in the season and Fowler (flu) and Castro (hit by many pitches) have missed some games, but from what I can tell there have been 2 line ups the same out of 7 games, Games 2 & 3. There was been [...]

Astros Sniff .500, Are Repulsed By The Smell

Angels 5, Astros 1 WP: Skaggs (1-0) LP: Keuchel (0-1) Both lefties were stingy early on, but Keuchel was the first to flinch and flinch hard in the fifth. A leadoff double led to impressive strikeouts of Trout and Pujols, but Freese singled and Hamilton continued shrugging off hypochondria by cranking a two-run shibby, on [...]

A win! Yankees salvage series with 4-2 win over Astros

Well, it took a little longer than we all would have liked, but the Yankees won their first game of 2014 on Thursday. They avoided what would have been a pretty embarrassing sweep with a 4-2 win over the Astros. It wasn’t the easiest win in the world, but a win is a win and […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogA win! Yankees salvage series with 4-2 win over Astros The post A win!

So far the Dexter Fowler acquisition is looking totally brilliant.

Yankees @ Astros Series Preview

  The talent that is quickly descending upon MMPUS is staggering.  And while I use the term “talent” loosely and “staggering” literally, the point remains: Houston has never seen anything quite like this.  Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies.  Rivers and seas boiling.  Forty years of darkness.  Earthquakes, volcanoes, the dead rising from [...]

After more than four months of offseason and six weeks of Spring Training, meaningful baseball is back. The Yankees open the 2014 season later tonight in the same place they ended last season, at Minute Maid Park in Houston. The Astros will honor Derek Jeter with a ceremony prior to tomorrow’s game, according to Evan […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blog4/1-4/3 Series Preview: Houston Astros The post 4/1-4/3 Series Preview: Houston Astros appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
