Marc Krauss grounds into fielder's choice, comes around to score
A wise man once said, "the bullpen can't blow a lead if you don't let the bullpen pitch." Now that's more like it. After giving up 6 runs in the bottom of the ninth yesterday to blow a 4-1 lead against the Athletics, the

Astros trade rumors: Chris Carter could be on the move

Astros trade rumors: What would Keuchel, McHugh and Cosart be worth?
Using my favorite (slightly outdated) tool for valuing players. How valuable are Houston's starting pitchers? It's difficult to slap a value any player. We've got some good measures, with WAR to say how they've performed and a nifty conversion to see how much that production would be worth on the open market (usually $5.5-6 million per win and rising every year). Bac...

Astros trade rumors: Three ridiculous possible trades with the Orioles
Hi. Do you like the trade deadline for the ridiculous trades that will never happen? Me too. Here are three with the Baltimore Orioles.

We didn't post this last week, since there were so few games in the proceeding week. But, there's plenty to talk about now, including a return to form for one of Houston's most remarkable players.

Athletics 7, Astros 4: Bullpen implodes again, Astros lose to A's
Despite a fantastic start by Scott Feldman, relievers give up 6 in the 9th. I am sorry guys. I really am. I'm one of those superstitious baseball fans who has tried year after year to overcome my silly ways, but sometimes, I still believe that I really do affect the game, even though logically, I know I don't. That being said, this game WOULD be the first one I recap on this great ...

Astros trade rumors: Predicting Luhnow at the trade deadline
Predicting ahead of the deadline types of trades Astros' GM Luhnow might make. Neither a buyer nor a seller be; For a sale oft loses both player and fan, And buying dulls the edge of husbandry, whatever the heck that is. This above all: to thine own self and team owner be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false in...
