Tribe bats non-existent in fourth straight loss

The Indians—oh my beloved Cleveland Indians. They are teetering on the brink of bad and boring. Well, at least the offense is. We have seen one solid pitching performance go by the wayside too many times since the All-Star break. This time it was spot starter Zach McAllister who did all he could to keep his team in the game while the bats offered little run support in a 3-1 loss...

End of season post-mortem: Houston Astros

Yes, the Astros are finishing under .500 again. For those keeping score at home, this was the sixth straight season where the Astros didn’t sniff 81 wins. However, the team also didn’t lose 100 games for the first time since 2010, and could even avoid 90 this year. They’re still a bad team, but they’re nowhere near as bad as they have been. Whenever a team increases their...

Collin McHugh: You Win Some, You Lose Some

Right-hander Collin McHugh didn’t exactly get his major league career off to a good start when he lost his first eight decisions in two brief stints with the Mets in 2012 and 2013. Despite posting a 2.91 minor league ERA in 2012, and a 2.87 ERA for Triple-A Las Vegas in 2013, the Mets had seen enough after just five major league starts and decided to trade him to Colorado that...

DraftKings – Hey, McHugh, Get Off Of My Cloud

And get into my DraftKings roster. When I was 19-20 years old, we used to go to my buddies house and drink 40's in his side yard. With nothing else better to do, we would just get wasted, smoke cheap cigarettes and try to entertain each other anyway we could. This would consist of telling jokes, watching TV on a 6 inch black and white or lighting things on fire. One day my buddy...

Astros star in terrible mall commercial of their own

The “intentionally terrible” mall commercial that has caught fire this week has inspired numerous parodies, and Houston Astros pitchers Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh starred in a remake of their own. Quickly, two thoughts. 1) Why are they advertising “back to baseball” when we’re near the end of August? 2) Is someone going to get wound up at a pitcher advertising pine...
