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. He and Astros starter Dallas Keuchel combined to pitch the shortest game in the history of the new Yankee Stadium: two hours and seven minutes.Are you kicking yourselves, Arizona Diamondbacks? If not, you should be.We all...

McCarthy bests Keuchel in complete-game duel, Yanks avoid sweep

  Brandon McCarthy pitched a four-hitter and the New York Yankees avoided a three-game sweep, beating the Houston Astros 3-0 Thursday. New York won for just the third time in 10 games. Chase Headley hit an early two-run double and the Yankees backed McCarthy with flawless fielding. The Yankees' fans also made fine plays - sitting in the first row behind the Houston dugout, comedian...

Preview: Yankees vs Astros (8/21/14)

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...

This Week In Tribe 8/19-24: Taking It Easy

The past few weeks have seen the Indians face off against a daunting list of play-off contenders. After losing a four game split series against the Reds, Cleveland has won series against both the Yankees (four games back in the Wild Card race) and the Orioles (the leaders in the East) and moved to within six games of first in the Central and five back in the Wild Card.

Xander Bogaerts Returns To Red Sox Lineup Against Dallas Keuchel, Astros

Xander Bogaerts had the night off Thursday against the Houston Astros, but the Boston Red Sox shortstop is back in the lineup for Friday’s game as Boston looks to extend its winning streak to five for the first time in a month. Bogaerts will hit sixth as the Sox play the second of a four-game series with the Astros. The 21-year-old has had an up-and-down season, and he’s looking...

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...

Second Thoughts Game #110: Texas 0, Cleveland 2

T.J. House as Dallas Keuchel Before the 2014 season, every comparison to Houston Astros players – without exception – was either in positive reference to former players like Roger Clemens or was a pejorative. In 2014, Houston still has the third-worst record in the league, but at the same time, the Astros team has surprising bright spots – foremost among them the sinister...

Astros trying to trade Scott Feldman ahead of deadline

The Houston Astros have made starting pitcher Scott Feldman available ahead of Thursday’s 4 PM ET trade deadline. However given the 31-year-old’s contract and statistics this season a trade may not happen. Feldman landed a three-year deal from the Astros worth $30 million in the offseason. Since signing that deal he has produced just a 4.39 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 19 starts this...

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 […]

Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, Jul 28

Put bluntly, Friday wasn’t a great start to the weekend. My faith in Dallas Keuchel (and our Daily SP Rankings‘ faith) was justified as he pitched great against the Marlins, but Alex Wood flamed out versus the Padres and the Astros were stifled by Brad Hand (seriously?). It happens. We live, learn, and move on. On a bright side, I’m definitely beginning to feel more comfortable...

Dallas Keuchel Thanks Heckler For Paying His Salary On Signed Ball (Photo)

Houston Astros starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel had the day off Thursday night from everything but engaging with hecklers. Keuchel took a page out of Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips’ playbook, and sent a chatty fan home with a souvenir. With the Astros taking on the Athletics in Oakland last night, Keuchel had heard enough from one heckler during his team’s 13...

Houston Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel had the last laugh in response to a heckler’s taunts during an off-day as his teammates faced the Oakland Athletics at O.co Coliseum on Thursday night. Apparently tired of the heckler but nevertheless engaging him — we’re assuming it was a man, although it could have been a woman (doubtful) […] The post Dallas Keuchel zings heckler with...

Dallas Keuchel Shuts Up Heckler By Tossing Him Baseball With A Special Message

It’s not quite as hilarious as the baseball that Brandon Phillips gave to a couple of drunk hecklers last month, but Houston Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel inscribed a note of his own on a ball and tossed it to a heckler during last night’s game against the A’s in Oakland. Keuchel had the night off but apparently that didn’t stop the loud A’s fan from sending some insults...

Dallas Keuchel writes clever message on baseball for heckler

Being taunted by hecklers comes with the territory of being a professional athlete. Often times they are ignored, but every now and then the heckler receives a response.
