Turner played for the Chiefs also.This Astros assistant GM sounds like a really scummy guy, and the organization has handled it in as douchey of a way as possible.
They are huge favorites.
Corbin is a Syracuse kid who also played college baseball for MVCC in Utica.
Stras pitched for the Chiefs.
Driving up pitch counts and making games wars of attrition- like tonight - doesn’t help the time factorAgree about the length of games but what other changes would you make to shorten them? The days of Greg Maddux bringing it home in 2 hours are not going to happen. Agree fixing the ball would help. Look at some of the guys and their HR totals this year - ridiculous! You are exactly right that there is way too much walk, K or HR these days.
I love the strategy part of baseball so I hate to limit the number of pitching changes but seems like that would be a solution.
Didn’t you know you aren’t a good pitcher if you ever give up a single run to an incredibly potent lineup ?In 6 appearances in this year's playoffs he has an ERA of 1.35, and had only allowed 5 baserunners in 6 2/3 innings.
In 4 innings against the Yankees this series (Coming into tonight), he had an ERA of 0.00, with a WHIP of 0.25.
I’m sure he’s a great baseball mind and will have the respect of the players , but maybe hiring someone with zero experience managing isn’t the best idea ?
