Looking forward to the mini-series. See how some of the young Rangers fare against the competition. Hopefully the pitchers do something and the hitters show up. We'll see.

Astro's fans that haven't been watching may not recognize half the Rangers lineup.

Man, having not seen him for awhile, it looks like R. Chirinos has lost a fair amount of weight. The grind of the season i assume.

SWS - w/ all due respect, this is seriously funny. Chirinos had a substantial head start on Odor and barely won the race. Odor may have been gassed, but it was due to a big effort. Couldn't fault the guys effort on that play.

Now the thought process of Elvis Andrus and Nick Solak on that play? That's a whole 'nother thing.

Oh Mike I totally agree!! To me that's what's so funny about it... It shouldn't have ever happened. Robby should have been out instantly, but he got a good jump and totally caught everyone off guard.. Including his own teammates... The looks in the dugout were just as hilarious...
Odor has been a thorn in the 'Stros side all year, so it was good for we 'Stros fans to get one back for a change!

Roger that. To know that someone in AstroNation thinks that even one Texas Ranger has been a thorn in the side this year is consoling.

You'd think the 2nd best 2nd baseman in the AL would be a little quicker than a catcher....

Well in reality, I think he is, but ol rabbitRobby just got a big jump on him... If the race had continued 2 more steps, I think he'd have caught him... Fortunately it didn't last and Robby got a little league triple out of it... No error made (well other than how and where the outfield guys reacted)...


And with the 'Stros bullpen they need to score every run they can to win once the starters get pulled... And Verlander was pitching which means not many runs for the 'Stros...

I'm too lazy to go look up who said what, but more than a few in AstroNation have done a turnaround on R. Chirinos from acquisition date until now. I told you guys you'd like him...

Yea, wuddn't me... I knew nothin' 'bout him but he's pretty much been top notch in my book from the git-go... Not that that means squat, but I like the guy... I hated to see "Machete" go and am glad to have him back tho too... I think those 2 will help anchor our pitching staff through the playoffs... both seem to have a good game sense about 'em... and are "calm"...

Chirinos is as good a guy as there is. Very involved in helping people in his home country, just a good dude. He's a "good enough" catcher. He's always had timely pop in his bat. I still cringe every time he takes a foul ball off the face mask. It's just uncanny how many times he takes a foul ball square in the mask.

But, i don't watch enough Astro ball to know all y'alls nicknames.

Who is: Machete?
Orbit?

Machete isnt our nickname...its something maldanado has had for a while... due to the cannon he has for a right arm.

Orbit is the guy that likes to dress up in a costume and shoot tshirts into the crowd at 280000 PSI..

We like Chironos, but he will not be the Stros starter next year. That’s the only improvement we need in the lineup. He has caught every one of Verlander’s innings this year. Machete is Martin Maldanado. Orbit is our mascot😄. ALMOST no one thinks Odor has been a thorn in our side this year. He sucks, but you know that 😉

For a few years my position on Chirinos has been that if he is the second catcher on a club, it's a helluva club.

Agreed on Odor. Once in awhile he hits one a long way. But that's just about it. Personally, i hope Nick Solak is at 2nd next year. But i imagine Odor's contract will preclude that. We'll see.

It helps to have the Condor at first for defensive purposes.

Cole is cruising. Allard is battling. But it's still 0 - 0. Good learning experience for Allard.


Ted Barrett has to be the Ed Hoculi of MLB officials. He really like to leave that forearm in the air on his out calls.
