Rockies pitcher takes shot at former Astros pitcher

Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Brett Anderson is known for being quite the entertaining tweeter, but he took this a bit overboard on Tuesday when going after former Houston Astros pitcher Lucas Harrell. I follow Anderson on Twitter, and he’s usually good for a conversation or two throughout the week. With that said, this was completely unprofessional from a pitcher who is...

Arizona Diamondbacks Acquire Lucas Harrell

This season for the Arizona Diamondbacks have been an absolute nightmare, as the club has the worst record in baseball (8-21) and winning games at home hasn’t come easy. The team has won two games so far and has yet to win a series at home. Will the addition of Lucas Harrell help them rebound? To make matters worse, the starting pitching has looked abysmal with Arizona boasting...

Series Preview: Royals at Houston Astros, April 15-17

The Kansas City Royals, coming off one of the worst weekends they've had in awhile, head to Houston to take on the Astros who are improved, but still not good. Offensively, they can look good at times, but that's only because they do have some home run power on their squad, though a lot of that can be attributed to their ballpark. I do like the trio of Jason Castro, Jose Altuve and...

Astros News: Will Lucas Harrell get a chance to succeed?

Houston Astros right-hander Lucas Harrell got knocked around by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Friday night. Harrell only lasted three innings giving up five earned runs, while walking three and striking out three. This start is something of a microcosm of Lucas Harrell's career. Harrell is not a flame-thrower, his fastball sits around 92mph. He's also not a control specialist...

Series Preview: Angels vs. Astros vs. Redemption

It was only a short few months ago that I pointed out how much better the Angels’ 2013 season would’ve looked if only they had been able to dominate the Astros like everyone else. Now, the Angels get a chance to right that wrong. They also get a chance to right their metaphorical ship that is their 2014 season after getting swept out of the Big A by the Mariners. There is very...
