Anyone see Verlander at the Pebble Beach Pro Am this weekend? He hung around until Sunday and ended up 3rd. When you got it, you got it!!!

McCann has to have 1000 at bats in 2017 and 2018 combined, catch at least 90 games in 2018, and not be on the disabled list at the end of this season in order for the automatic extension to kick in.

He had 399 ABs last season and has never had more than 510 in a season. He will never reach 1000 combined over the 2 years. Astros won't have to pony up $15 million for him next year.

And I would never trade Tucker for Realmuto.

Glad to hear! Yes he won't reach all of those. 1 of them he might.

I like him and think he will do fine this year, but he is patchwork for the future. Need to draft a good catcher and also sign/trade for one. But do not give up Tucker.

First practice today

Have y’all watched the World Series documentary on the MLB channel? If not set your dvr, you won’t be disappointed.

I like Gose's attitude! If you get a chance to here his interview today, do it. Asked about his confidence he said it was high. Said he's a lefty and throws 100, how many guys do that?. Asked about his other stuff, he said he has a curveball from hell

Proposed Thread rule: we do not use that four letter word this season. Ever.

He got a ring (unearned). Why cant he just retire with the bank hes already got for doing nothing but hurting this team.

I dont think that 4 letter word is going to make the team out of spring training.

We are going up to watch the ranger beat down in Arlington to get it started. Then headed hopefully to Houston that Monday for the home opener.

Also just laid 1k on them to win the division. Go STROS!!!!
