Little Jose Altuve’s Big Season for Houston Astros

It’s been a season of controversy for the Houston Astros. They showed some real promise in June, with rookie right fielder George Springer making a big splash, and pitchers Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh posting ace-like numbers. However, shortly after Sports Illustrated declared them the “2017 World Series champs“, things began to unravel. Top prospect Carlos Correa was...

Astros Injury Update: Dallas Keuchel shut down for season

Houston Astros left-hander Dallas Keuchel has thrown his last pitch of the 2014 season says Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle. While that news might disappoint fantasy baseball players looking to get one more start out of him, the good news is that he is not injured. Because he has reached the 200-inning mark for the first time in his professional career, the Astros have...

Daily SP Rankings: Weekend, Sep 20-22

The 2014 MLB season wraps up next Sunday, so this is the last full edition of our Weekend Daily SP Rankings! On Saturday Dallas Keuchel takes on the Mariners at home in what should be a dynamite outing. As we mentioned the other day when C.J. Wilson took on Seattle, the Mariners can’t hit LHP. Wilson promptly pitched seven innings of one-hit ball. Keuchel has faced Seattle three...

Boxscore Breakdown #149: It was fun while it lasted – Astros 6, Angels 1

The winning streak is no more. The Angels were on one of the most impressive and dominant rolls of the 2014 season, so it is only fitting that they end the streak by laying a total egg. It isn’t a big deal, they were going to lose eventually, but I don’t think anyone saw it ending with Dallas Keuchel just laying waste to them. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. Run Expectancy...

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...

Let’s Watch Dallas Keuchel Face Mike Trout Three Times

Saturday night, Mike Trout kicked the living crap out of Scott Feldman and the Houston Astros. His first time up, Trout went deep. His second time up, Trout went deep. His third time up, Trout went less deep, but he went deep enough for a double. All of that’s to say Trout had 10 total bases […]

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...

Watch Houston Astros pitchers hilariously spoof a local commercial

Few things in life are as cheesy as local commercials. The budget is usually low, the acting is usually horrific and the script is usually comical. Houston Astros pitchers Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh clearly recognize this. The duo recently spoofed a local commercial for a Missouri mall with hilarious results. First, you need to watch the spot for East Hills mall. Now, sit back...

Yankees Win Game, But Win McCarthy Trade by Landslide

Yesterday Brandon McCarthy continued the renaissance he began after being traded to the Yankees earlier this season, throwing a complete game, four-hit shut-out.

Brandon McCarthy (4-2, 2.30 ERA) gets the job of sweep protector as he goes up against Dallas Keuchel (10-8, 3.11 ERA) in the last game against Houston. McCarthy lost his last two outings thanks to the offense, or lack thereof, which was shut out both times. The Yankees are averaging 2.9 runs per game over the last two weeks. “Whether the game means more, whether we’re chasing...

Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, Aug 21

Despite having 14 fewer pitching options, Thursday has just one fewer starter ranked 100 or better than Wednesday. Madison Bumgarner, Zack Greinke, and Corey Kluber headline the day’s probables in some very juicy matchups. David Price is there, too, but he doesn’t rate quite as high as those three in his return to Tampa. Dallas Keuchel is getting penalized a little for the ballpark...

Daily SP Rankings: Friday, Aug 15

Some days the rest of season Steamer projections are confusing to me, but today there are several notable players with projections I disagree with: Last-ranked Dallas Keuchel is projected for a 4.61 ERA for the rest of the season. Tanner Roark, owner of a 2.86 ERA and by some (very cursory) measures is a borderline top 10 SP, yet Steamer projects him for a 4.25 ERA until the end...

FG on Fox: Dallas Keuchel’s Changing Repertoire

At different points in his career, Dallas Keuchel has thrown a slurve and a spike curve. Due to ineffectiveness and injury, he’s had to step down his usage of either breaking ball over his short career. But they’ll be back. The first breaking ball Keuchel ever threw was a slurve back in high school. But […]

Put bluntly, Friday wasn’t a great start to the weekend.

It happens. We live, learn, and move on. On a bright side, I’m definitely beginning to feel more comfortable...
