I love that even the Astros' fans made an error on that play.

Case in point: Only four of our 13 wins have come by more than three runs.

What we don't have is our fair share of games in which the bullpen actually closed out a late lead.

Fangraphs keeps first-pitch strikes, but I'm not clear if that is "pitches in the zone" or "strikes, including swinging strikes that may have been out of the zone."

The only starting pitcher who has recorded a win against the A's this season is Felix Hernandez. They've played 19 games.

I believe so. But I don't think he threw it into center the other time, just didn't get the runner.

That pitch-out play may have been the single worst play I've ever seen in MLB. Like, Astros bad, but on both sides.

(Wilson may not have been the best example. I remember now that his celebration has something to do with a dead parent/relative. And he turns his back to the batter first so that he can't see it.)

My knee-jerk reaction is that I think Griffin would be better in the pen and that Milone is better suited for starting.
