At least we won despite the shit calls from the crooked ass umps.
that was the best, most boring game i've ever watched.
Astros win 2-0.
Hunter Brown done good. Welcome to the bigs.
Loved Montero's approach to Seager & Lowe there. ALL changeups away.
Hunter HOF Brown with a legendary debut!
Thank you Hunter, thank you Astros, Fuck you umps!
Fuck the umps we still got the W
Hunter Brown undefeated for his career
Not today, satan.
Just shows how bad the bad times were that this is the first time we've been .500 since 2006.
The umps couldn't take the W from us tonight.
FUCK NEW YORK
One more out and New York can eat shit.
If you're the Rangers, imagine losing this game only because of a rookie dominating you and Maldonado getting a base hit.
And your own team flubbing the throw home
All of a sudden hpu isn’t calling the edges
Surprised they don't have New York overrule that.
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.
I’m going to need to see that video, because it looked pretty clear from the Astros broadcast that he beat the tag.
[found the video](https://twitter.com/corydtweets/status/1566970774191480832?s=20&t=Wkph1sKhR4bmiyji5Kf1Ag)
It was a shot direct between the Umps legs. The it was close but he got him about 2 inches above the plate
Right, couldn't you take the speed the runner is going and adjust the fps to that and then take it frame by frame...
Welp, let's just hope 1 run is enough.
Anyone know the latest status with Pressly?
He'll be back when his 15 days are done. Just not sure what day that is.
Thanks. Seems like it's been forever. Want him back soon, always seems like it takes him a while to get rolling.
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...
They’re looking at the AL standings not the play…
Montero? Oh noes. Heh.
Before get too mad. Everytime I post that Montero deals and can't stop it until he stops dealing.
Still hot, strings don’t count and everybody understands that except the guys tasked with officiated the game, apparently
2018 ALCS tier reviewing
Best thing we can do is knock Yanky out of playoffs again. They hate it. HATE IT.
Fuck the Jankee's.
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
All pitchers are still using sticky stuff. MLB just doesn't care anymore because they are still doing "checks".
They just look at the hand now - what a joke.
We need to end this game now. New fucking York can't overrule a win.
They did Altuve wrong
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.
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
Costly? The Rangers have never lost 1-0 at MMP.
Nice reverse curse, homie
It’s not the first time Altuve has been robbed.
Still a fucking horrible decision by Altuve with 1 out. Worst baserunner in the history of the MLB and it’s not even close
> worst baserunner in the history of the MLB
My dude he isn't even the worst baserunner in the league. Check BsR.....
Either way he was safe the umps really made a terrible call every angle showed it.
Doesn’t make it the right decision. Bad defensive instincts and a bad tag even made it possible
Im sorry but any time you rightfully score it's the right decision. He was robbed not his fault.
Gestures at Hunter Pence
It was a bad decision to go. But he was safe.
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.
Bringing back “show the altuve replay”
What angle did they have that made them convinced that Altuve got tagged? I'm so pissed.
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.
You are right, and there was clear evidence from every angle he wasn't tagged.
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.
THE UMPS ARE ALL CUNTS
If it comes down to that horrible call they need to protest this game. Unreal.
Protesting games isn’t a thing anymore. They took that option away a couple years ago.
TIL. I wondered why I hadn’t heard of it happening in a while.
Not that it ever mattered. In any sport. Nothing ever changed after a protest.
Altuve was safe
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.
There wasn't dick. The tag was was applied on the wrong side of the base. It's clear and obvious
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.
A camera 400 ft away? 🤣
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.
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.
Fuck New York.
Fuck Bud Selig.
Throw beat him. Def gonna lean towards out. Far from a terrible call
You’re right, but a lot of posters here have a victim mentality. What can ya do
You mean the throw up the 1st base line? The tag is what matters and it was absolutely botched
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.
Tag was right there.
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.
Deep fly ball by Castellanos and gone
Blind freaking umps but I really wish Altuve would quit gambling.
I don't mind it... haven't had much offense this game, so I don't mind trying to make something happen.
Having the ump be in a state that hates us....yea I'm calling a conspiracy. Not the first time this year
He was safe then and he's safe now. Replay is fucking stupid.
What an absolutely terrible call
Umps r bitches.
What the actual fuck?
He looked clearly safe from every single angle they showed.
Like that was stunningly bad for the review team.
Horse shit on horse shit all night.
New York can suck my entire ass, you blind fucks.
You have it on video and you still get the call wrong???
Of course, the replay official is in NY, so you know how that goes…
Not even an astros fan but how the fuck is he out? Looked pretty clear to me
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.
This is horseshit.
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.
Fuck you New fucking York bitches.
The fans and commentators know baseball more than the umpires
New York will fuck us over at every turn
THATS FUCKING BULLSHIT!!! FUCK THE UMPS THEY HATE THE ASTROS, FUCKING HELL
I don’t agree but i understand i mean it’s not indisputable :(
That second to last angle put too much doubt in it.
Not a great call to go for it in the first place tbh. But should’ve been overturned anyway.
I don’t understand anything anymore
Are you fucking kidding me?!? What the fuck are these fucking assholes looking at?!
I mean are we watching the same thing ? He’s clearly safe
Ben May and replay are double ass
Burn the arena down
Fucking umps lmao
How was that not clear and convincing?
Yep. Not a single angle where the glove even looks like it touched first.
If you ever wonder how prevalent terrorism still is in 2022 just watch the officiating of every Houston Astros game
What a bullshit call.
BULLSHIT. HE WAS CLEARLY SAFE
Wow MLB replay is trash
No way 🤬🤬🤬🤬
That’s some bullshit.
No Fucking way
Might not be conclusive
Was pretty fucking conclusive.
There is no way this gets overturned
One thing we can all agree on - lol blocking rule?
How could he have blocked it? He was behind home plate and still applied the tag on the wrong side of the base
The glove lace blocked Altuve.
Come on NY! Get it right!
taking forever to call it safe
His bank account?
He's safe and any other call is flat wrong.
Hah insurance run and I hope they award it to yordan
Holy shit he is safe.
He is fucking safe
I don't think he should have ran, but I'm glad he did
He's always been an aggressive base runner. Gotta take the bad with the good.
I thought he was in.
Altuve got it!!!
He looked safe
Oh Altuve that hurt.
tuve testing them
Overturn that shit. He was safe!
How blind is the HPU? The tag was applied behind home plate
He's safe. It was pretty obvious live.
Our socks look like candy corn 😐
Really liking this Leclerc outing so far!
Here we go boys.
Fuck yeah. We need to end it right here.
Here we go
There we go!! Let’s get some insurance runs
I love how quickly TK calls strikeouts. You can really see the 7 frame delay that the outfield camera is on, as he usually calls it seemingly before the ball gets to the plate!
I'd love if we got some insurance runs
