We are now 1-16-3.
I don’t know what to say, really, except that the only guys who keep hitting are the only 3 guys not expected to make the team. And that this team misses more plays and makes more errors than my kids’ T-ball team.
They got absolutely CREAMED by the Mets today 12-1, error after error, 4 in all, allowing 7 freaking unearned runs. They managed 5 hits, 1 walk (Abercrombie) and 1 piddly run. I suppose I should be saying all cheerful about how at least they didn’t get shut out.
Remember the infamous 2003 Detroit Tigers? The team that went 43-119? Well, their ST record was 10-19-2. The Astros are now at .059 – yes, you read that right. I can’t find any team, at least from 84 on, who all ended ST at at least .250. Yes, I know that ST stats correllate poorly with the regular season, but losing (not winning) 19 IN A ROW???
They better be taking a LOT of fielding practice.
And maybe it just might could be time to find a better hitting coach. Yes, I know a coach can only do so much with what he is given, but he hasn’t done a darn thing with what he HAS been given.
We’ve got 3 more games to match the 88 Baltimore Orioles 22 games lost to open the year. I guess if we can’t win, might as well get some notoriety with a losing streak, hunh.
Last year I called the team the Psychobilly Cadillac. This year, I’m gonna call em the Psychotic NO-VAs (you know about the old story of how Chevy tried to sell Novas in Mexico, only to learn that the reason they couldn’t sell any was because “No Va” in Spanish means “ No Go….”)
