Diagnosing the Astros Offense
We've all been seeing a lot of weeping and gnashing of the teeth after this weekend saw the Astros lose 1-0 twice and score in only 2 of the 31 innings during the three game set against the Rangers. A lot has been made of the teams' abysmal .189 batting average. That's really bad. So bad, its actually impressive the Astros have managed to score a hair under 3 runs a game on the young season. So what's the culprit for the putrid offense? Its easy to blame the strikeouts. The Astros ...

More scouting reports out of Lancaster
Yesterday I gave you the skinny on a couple scouting reports for Vincent Velasquez and Mark Appel. Well, Baseball Prospectus was holding out on us, and posted a few more this morning. In this post, they look at Teoscar Hernandez (who has 5 triples already this season,) Tony Kemp, Rio Ruiz, Carlos Correa, Lance McCullers, and Appel again. There's a lot of good info in their reports, but let's look at the bottom line fo...

The Week That Was: April 7-13
It's easy to overreact to individual games on a daily basis - I do it all the time. You probably do, too. But we can take whole weeks and examine some trends, so let's do that for the week of April 7-13 - the second full week of the season. April 7: 9-1 loss at home to Anaheim April 8: 5-2 loss at Toronto April 9: 7-3 loss at Toronto April 10: 6-4 win at Toronto April 11: 1-0 loss at Arlington (12 innings) April 12: 6-5 win at Arlington (10 innings) Ap...

Scouting reports on Velasquez and Appel
The staff at Baseball Prospectus took a look at Vincent Velasquez and Mark Appel recently and turned in some good reports. For Velasquez they noted that he touched 96 with his fastball while sitting more comfortably at 92-94 with the makings of an average Major League curve. BP projects him as a mid-rotation starter, though his velocity could play up better as a relief arm. With Appel, they noted...
