At least we won despite the shit calls from the crooked ass umps.


m0nk3y42

that was the best, most boring game i've ever watched.


pantiesdrawer

Astros win 2-0.


Luckytxn_1959

Hunter Brown done good. Welcome to the bigs.


dream_team34

Loved Montero's approach to Seager & Lowe there. ALL changeups away.


44Yordan

Hunter HOF Brown with a legendary debut!


xeuropa

Thank you Hunter, thank you Astros, Fuck you umps!


gulfside13

Fuck the umps we still got the W


GivesNerdLovin

Hunter Brown undefeated for his career

Just shows how bad the bad times were that this is the first time we've been .500 since 2006.


rahrahrah4781

Phew!


NOLA1987

The umps couldn't take the W from us tonight.


Cucumber-Jen

Yay!

Game!!!!!!!!

FUCK NEW YORK


peytong67

4️⃣


Luckytxn_1959

One more out and New York can eat shit.


JoseAltuve27

If you're the Rangers, imagine losing this game only because of a rookie dominating you and Maldonado getting a base hit.


ExB

And your own team flubbing the throw home


_jared_p

All of a sudden hpu isn’t calling the edges


Luckytxn_1959

Surprised they don't have New York overrule that.


front_butt_coconut

Replay is a joke. Anyone with a brain can extrapolate from the slow mo video that he beat the tag but they can’t overturn it because there’s no “clear and convincing” evidence? I don’t care if no one is around to hear the tree fall in the woods, it makes a sound. Altuve was safe.

front_butt_coconut

I’m going to need to see that video, because it looked pretty clear from the Astros broadcast that he beat the tag.


CammyTheGreat

[found the video](https://twitter.com/corydtweets/status/1566970774191480832?s=20&t=Wkph1sKhR4bmiyji5Kf1Ag)


CammyTheGreat

It was a shot direct between the Umps legs. The it was close but he got him about 2 inches above the plate


No-Significance5449

Right, couldn't you take the speed the runner is going and adjust the fps to that and then take it frame by frame...


dirtysock47

Welp, let's just hope 1 run is enough.


dream_team34

Anyone know the latest status with Pressly?


NOLA1987

He'll be back when his 15 days are done. Just not sure what day that is.


dream_team34

Thanks. Seems like it's been forever. Want him back soon, always seems like it takes him a while to get rolling.


booger_dick

How many fucking times has replay gone against the Astros even when the call was plainly in our favor? That has to be close to 10 this year right? Goddamn motherfuckers...


liquid_diet

They’re looking at the AL standings not the play…


Luckytxn_1959

Montero? Oh noes. Heh.


Luckytxn_1959

Before get too mad. Everytime I post that Montero deals and can't stop it until he stops dealing.


Intern_Al

Still hot, strings don’t count and everybody understands that except the guys tasked with officiated the game, apparently


peytong67

2018 ALCS tier reviewing


PrimeMinister_RoB

Best thing we can do is knock Yanky out of playoffs again. They hate it. HATE IT.


Luckytxn_1959

Fuck the Jankee's.


Shark_Rocket

Did anyone else notice a dark spot on the top of the rangers pitcher's hat? He kept touching it and it looked like a visible stain from some kinda spider-tac or rosin


Sacagawesus

All pitchers are still using sticky stuff. MLB just doesn't care anymore because they are still doing "checks".


Fragmented79

They just look at the hand now - what a joke.


Luckytxn_1959

We need to end this game now. New fucking York can't overrule a win.


fuzynutznut

They did Altuve wrong


jsting

I wonder if we end up playing the Yankees in the playoffs, if the replay booth being located in NY will be biased. That was a bad bad call.


Sicko_Mo_Bamba_Mode

We will probably be against the booths favor too, how the Yankees are still the second most benefitted by umps team even WITH the Judge strikezone controversy is telling tbh


JoseAltuve27

Costly? The Rangers have never lost 1-0 at MMP.


AfterbirthNachos

Nice reverse curse, homie


Idolmistress

It’s not the first time Altuve has been robbed.


jyok33

Still a fucking horrible decision by Altuve with 1 out. Worst baserunner in the history of the MLB and it’s not even close


Sacagawesus

> worst baserunner in the history of the MLB My dude he isn't even the worst baserunner in the league. Check BsR.....


Drummerdani

Either way he was safe the umps really made a terrible call every angle showed it.


jyok33

Doesn’t make it the right decision. Bad defensive instincts and a bad tag even made it possible


Drummerdani

Im sorry but any time you rightfully score it's the right decision. He was robbed not his fault.


ExB

Gestures at Hunter Pence


WorthPrudent3028

It was a bad decision to go. But he was safe.


Sacagawesus

MLB just needs to fucking get rid of the replay rules since they never work. These fucking jackasses in NY never overturn calls unless it's so obvious that a monkey could see it. What the fuck is the point of even having a reply if they never overturn shit? He was so fucking clearly safe. Insane.


colpuck

Bringing back “show the altuve replay”


NOLA1987

What angle did they have that made them convinced that Altuve got tagged? I'm so pissed.


44Yordan

The way replay works to overturn a call there has to be convincing evidence that the call was wrong. When they say the call stands instead of the call is confirmed that means whatever was called on the field will be the call.


booger_dick

You are right, and there was clear evidence from every angle he wasn't tagged.


44Yordan

I agree… NY disagrees with us. Altuve is unfortunately out. The league is not and never has been a fan of the Astros. Yankees cheat and get documents legally sealed. Astros cheat and get one of the harshest penalties ever given to a team.


Specific-Mongoose-93

THE UMPS ARE ALL CUNTS


rahrahrah4781

If it comes down to that horrible call they need to protest this game. Unreal.


punani-dasani

Protesting games isn’t a thing anymore. They took that option away a couple years ago.


rahrahrah4781

TIL. I wondered why I hadn’t heard of it happening in a while.


WorthPrudent3028

Not that it ever mattered. In any sport. Nothing ever changed after a protest.


imover9thousand

Altuve was safe


ToyCannon1982

That’s one of those calls that stands if he’s called safe or if he’s called out but there were video angles suggesting both outcomes.


ExB

There wasn't dick. The tag was was applied on the wrong side of the base. It's clear and obvious


ToyCannon1982

The angle from centerfield made it look like the catcher got the tag in, so no, it wasn’t clear and obvious. Too close to overturn the call on the field.


ExB

A camera 400 ft away? 🤣


ToyCannon1982

I mean these cameras are fully capable of picking up action happening at home plate. The lenses alone are 6 figures. Next time you’re at MMP stop by the centerfield camera well (I can point you to it if you want) to see what’s going on there. They are insanely capable. I’m actually kind of embarrassed for you that you think this is a gotcha. [This](https://youtu.be/e6pY0fx61hU) is outdated and you can see what this one can do.


Sacagawesus

MLB just needs to fucking get rid of the replay rules since they never work. These fucking jackasses in NY never overturn calls unless it's so obvious that a monkey could see it. What the fuck is the point of even having a reply if they never overturn shit? He was so fucking clearly safe. Insane.


GFZDW

Every call by NY should have a video showing why the judge decided why they accepted or rejected the call. Without that, there is no oversight, and the fans lose every time.


RootHogOrDieTrying

Fuck New York. Fuck /r/baseball. Fuck Bud Selig.


Global-Side-5802

Throw beat him. Def gonna lean towards out. Far from a terrible call


ToyCannon1982

You’re right, but a lot of posters here have a victim mentality. What can ya do


ExB

You mean the throw up the 1st base line? The tag is what matters and it was absolutely botched


Sacagawesus

My man what??? The throw could come in 10 minutes before the runner...if the tag isn't made then he is safe. The tag was CLEARLY late and he was DEFINITELY safe.


Global-Side-5802

Tag was right there.


Sacagawesus

Sure. And it was behind Altuve at the plate. He was safe and it was very clear. Laces on the glove do not count for a tag.

Blind freaking umps but I really wish Altuve would quit gambling.


dream_team34

I don't mind it... haven't had much offense this game, so I don't mind trying to make something happen.


Hermit_Royalty

Having the ump be in a state that hates us....yea I'm calling a conspiracy. Not the first time this year


manofconviction

He was safe then and he's safe now. Replay is fucking stupid.


tobiasfunke6398

What an absolutely terrible call


JinFuu

Umps r bitches.


punani-dasani

What the actual fuck? He looked clearly safe from every single angle they showed. Like that was stunningly bad for the review team.


WhiskeyTangoBush

Horse shit on horse shit all night.


GFZDW

New York can suck my entire ass, you blind fucks.


astrosdude91

You have it on video and you still get the call wrong???


tbartman68

Of course, the replay official is in NY, so you know how that goes…


Stevenam81

Exactly


Xs2experience

Not even an astros fan but how the fuck is he out? Looked pretty clear to me


Stevenam81

Because it’s always the Astros vs their opponent AND the umps. Just look at pretty much any ump scorecard. Every one shows the opponent favored with the three most impactful calls going against Houston.


Abject-Duck977

Wow


NachosReady

This is horseshit.


successadult

Home plate umpire has been blowing it all night and then blows the out call at home that fucks us on the replay.

Bruh, two clear angles. Awful call.

Hmmhowaboutthis

Not a great call to go for it in the first place tbh. But should’ve been overturned anyway.


legohotwing

I don’t understand anything anymore


booger_dick

Are you fucking kidding me?!? What the fuck are these fucking assholes looking at?!


jbenson255

I mean are we watching the same thing ? He’s clearly safe

Ben May and replay are double ass

Fucking umps lmao


ReptarKanklejew

How was that not clear and convincing?


WorthPrudent3028

Yep. Not a single angle where the glove even looks like it touched first.


Intern_Al

If you ever wonder how prevalent terrorism still is in 2022 just watch the officiating of every Houston Astros game


AlwaysSunny512

What a bullshit call.


NOLA1987

BULLSHIT. HE WAS CLEARLY SAFE

rahrahrah4781

No Fucking way


Mundane_Leopard_3974

Might not be conclusive


No-Significance5449

Was pretty fucking conclusive.


ToyCannon1982

There is no way this gets overturned


LOOK_AT_IT

One thing we can all agree on - lol blocking rule?


ExB

How could he have blocked it? He was behind home plate and still applied the tag on the wrong side of the base


JohnnyBrillcream

The glove lace blocked Altuve.


rahrahrah4781

Come on NY! Get it right!


lord_flvcko02

taking forever to call it safe

Luckytxn_1959

Holy shit he is safe.

He is fucking safe


NOLA1987

I don't think he should have ran, but I'm glad he did


dream_team34

He's always been an aggressive base runner. Gotta take the bad with the good.

I thought he was in.
