9-9 with a 2.87 ERA is some tragic numbers, glad they picked one up for Javier.


Sicko_Mo_Bamba_Mode

It's crazy how little run support Javier has gotten this year


Intern_Al

A strikeout that sent the bat flying to end the game is a perfect way to describe the 2022 Tigers


NOLA1987

Magic number to clinch division: Biggio (7) and three to get into the postseason Astros pitchers making hitters yeet bats...beautiful. It won't be the last time we will have low scoring games, probably in the postseason as well. But we do have the pitching to lock it down.

Pay the 👑 please.


CoachWatermelon

They’re saving money so they can pay Framber

Tuck is a must extend for me. Pls don’t be cheap.


donttouchthtmacaroni

We’ve done a much better job overall at putting away the awful teams this year. Love to see it.

Oakland A’s have entered the chat

Javier and no run support, the Verlander special.


htown_bro

This game was like watching a movie where the main character was in danger but you knew they would win in the end anyways so I never felt uneasy.


hanSoes

Too much plot armor


Austintheweird94

Just a wanted to say, love our Astros. I'm 5 days out from finally trading my car in for a better vehicle and my tire tread separated from the sidewall on the highway, only thing that kept me sane is the day game we had, started 10 minutes after it happened and kept my thoughts good and calm. Have a happy afternoon, good evening everyone!


Crimsic

Good luck with your car situation!


Gus_Frin_g

What a whiff to end the ballgame!


corbz23

Got the win on a lazy day, let's go 'stros!

Javier should never go back into the bullpen. Way too valuable as a starter.


Resting_Lich_Face

He should totally go back into the bullpen for the postseason. Way too valuable as a bailout guy.


Luberino_Brochacho

Does he have to be one or the other. Can’t they just do it on a we’ll see notice.


Resting_Lich_Face

That's what bullpen is.


Luberino_Brochacho

Right but does someone actually need to be designated bullpen or is it fluid. Like can you say okay you'll be waiting ready to go for games 1-3. If we don't need you then you'll start game 4


FivePersonTent

There is no bullpen designation. Pitchers can be used however we need to.

Can we put to rest the myth that Vazquez pitch calling abilities aren't as good as Maldonado? We just went 9 inning giving up only 1 run. Come on now. Maldonados defensive ability is overstated, Vazquez is just as good. Granted I say that and then Vazquez goes 0 for 3 today smh


Hugh_Jassole94

He needs more at bats to get his rhythm. I’d rather him get the majority of the starts the rest of the season and this post season as every run will be crucial.


wessneijder

Agreed. I wish he would start more games.


ToyCannon1982

In the history of baseball, no team who has replaced their #1 catcher mid season has ever won the World Series.


Tiberius-Dawn

Did they put a really handsome guy wearing a Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit jersey on tv?


booger_dick

I wish we could always play the Tigers.


Luckytxn_1959

Javier was throwing some nasty stuff today. They need to get some offense going when he pitches.


[deleted]

Bats were a little quiet today but did just enough to win. Pitching continues to be top shelf. If we go all the way this year, it will be on the shoulders of our pitching. It's a great time to be an Astros fan!

Finally Firing on all eight cylinders at just the right time.


Mundane_Leopard_3974

Javier with a era of 2.8 , and a record of 9-9 .. astros offense have been such a let down while he plays.. he should seriously have a record similar to Frankie, but seems like we just don’t like scoring when he is on the mound… astros are probably averaging 2 runs per game when he starts


Burt-Macklin

Pitching records are dumb. Never gonna change my mind.


JoseAltuve27

The Astros whooped the AL Central this year.
