Be Afraid: Alien Pod People Have Landed In Houston

All right, I’m settling into my well-worn couch with a beer and a couple of slices of pizza to watch Collin McHugh own some Mariner ass. I am fully invested now (See Pulled into the Astros Vortex . . . Again). Bought and paid for, all in, and willing to put up my car as collateral.

Collin McHugh Continues to Trust His Slider

On Wednesday, Collin McHugh pitched well against the Ben Zobrist-less Oakland A’s. Zobrist’s absence made the A’s a weaker version of themselves, but they were still a tougher opponent than the hapless Rangers he saw five days earlier. While McHugh only tossed 5.2 innings and faced just 23 batters, he tied Trevor Bauer for the single-game […]

Collin McHugh - a flower amidst the ruins
