DAT 8/11 - Rangers (Ragans) vs Astros (Frambaw) - 1:10p

Got some life out of Tucker and a little flash from Yordan, would be pretty sweet if we filled out our best lineup to give them opportunities to do damage with runners on.

I'm guessing with Framber on the mound and muh infield defense we are still going to see Yuli at 1st but will have Yed in left and Trey DH'ing. Hopefully it's Trey at 1st and Aledmys at left but I'm not holding my breath.

Rag arm for the Rangers making his second career start, threw 5 shutout against White Sox a week ago. Looks like a pretty stock lefty with a low 90's fastball, changeup, and cutter. Probably a good opportunity for the bettors to cash a no runs first inning or under first 5

PROGRAMMING NOTE: Today's game will only be broadcasted on YouTube.

I'm definitely the sentimental type, but continuing to start Yuli, especially in the 2-hole, is criminal negligence at this point.

What is happening now is ultimately for the best. I pity anyone who still chooses to blow 3 hours watching these games and even more the saps spending 500 bucks to take their families to MMP.

Can't be worse than Kalas or the Rangers' crew.

I love Yuli, and I will always appreciate his contributions. But I love winning more. I root for uniforms, and right now, I'm sick of 10 occupying first base and the 2 spot in the lineup. And I'm well past 12 being in the dugout at all, much less making critical decisions every day.

You tried. You served with enthusiasm. Some forces can't be overcome. Rules of the DAT, Dusty Bakers stupidity. TYFYS.



Mancini will likely be in the lineup today. Don't fall for it. Dusty hasn't learned anything.

99% chance.

Also about a 99% chance that one of Altuve/Bregs/Yed/Ted gets a rest day.

I'm just going to assume Yuli/Maldy/Dubon start everyday so I can be pleasantly surprised when they don't.

Astros live and die by analytics.

Yuli should be at bottom of line up or out completely. If I'm Trey Mancini, i'm pissed.

Also, I'm catching myself refreshing the twitter feed to see if I'm gonna bother watching today.

I don't think he was ever thought of as more than a rental, but if there was a chance at signing him it's getting closer to none than slim.

LMFAO Yuli still batting 2nd.

At least we get Mancini at DH, and of course no Chas in CF against the LHP.

You can't be the second worst manager in MLB without making some boldly terrible moves.



*Tony LaRussa is the worst and it's not really close.

In first page.

Probably a loss.

Also, Martin Maldonado should go down as one of the best catchers we’ve ever had (Brian McCann No. 1). I would put Maldonado at No. 2, Brad Ausmus at No. 3. I’m not old enough to remember Ashby at catcher. Maybe I saw him play in 1987, I don’t remember. I know Bidge started catching late 1987 and I believe he was the Opening Day catcher in 1988, but I can’t list him as a catcher because he would go on to play second the majority of his career.

So Gurriel 2nd. Again (WTF?), no YorGod after he hits a HR, and no Chas against a lefty even though he rakes against them but his against a righty last night?

In other tiring words, FODB.
