COLLIN MCHUGH NEWS

McHugh's career turnaround coincided with switch to gluten-free lifestyle

Houston Astros pitcher Collin McHugh is now a dependable #2 behind ace Dallas Keuchel, but it wasn't always that way for the right-hander. Prior to joining the Astros in December 2013, McHugh owned a career record of 0-8 and an ERA of 8.94. So far with Houston, he's 16-11 with a 3.17 and is currently 5-2 on the 2015 campaign.

Want an Angels trade? Wait awhile

Everyone wants the Angels to make a trade desperately. At least I assume everyone does. Angels fans definitely do, but I imagine fans of other teams do as well because nobody can possibly enjoy watching a lineup as comically inept as the Angels lineup. Even AL West rivals have to see that this isn’t the kind of incompetence that you mock and take glee in but rather the kind that you...

Everything is bigger and better in Texas, including Collin McHugh

Things are always bigger and better in Texas. If you don’t believe that, you need to take at the Houston Astros’ 27-year-old right-handed pitcher Collin McHugh, because once he set foot on Texas soil, he has been pitching like he’s ten feet tall and bullet proof. The Astros selected McHugh off waivers from the Colorado Rockies in December 2013, a move that didn’t make cover...

Giants-Astros Preview

Although Collin McHugh claims the longest undefeated streak in the majors, there's a bit of a blurred line when he faces the NL. The Houston right-hander also happens to be tied for the longest active winless streak against the Senior Circuit, and both streaks will be in play Tuesday night as the Astros welcome the San Francisco Giants for a two-game set.

Angels vs. Astros Series Preview: Firstros

Well, this is annoying. The Astros were supposed to be the punching bag of the AL West but now they had to go and get all uppity and take not just the division but all of baseball by storm. We all knew they wouldn’t be bad forever, but they’ve been the Lastros for so long now that I’d just gotten used to it. Now they are in first, so I guess they are the Firstros and that...

Houston Astros: Contenders or Pretenders

Almost a year ago, Sports Illustrated baseball writer Ben Reiter declared that the Houston Astros would be the 2017 World Series Champions.

Houston, We Don’t Have a Problem

Perhaps one of the most alluring characteristics of the game of baseball is its humility and and parity. A player can go on a weeks tear, absolutely scorching anything that nears the plate. Then follow that up by being stifled for a month, failing trying to barrel up the baseball. Or a team that boasts the smallest payroll in baseball, and had lost over 300 games over the last three...

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. Yet I remain realistic; I know that this could be a game that my Stros lose. McHugh could stink...
