Intentionally putting someone on base is rarely the right move, and it is a very overused tactic. The Astros also only has 9 sac bunts all year. They are very analytically driven, and it's cool that Hinch is on board as well.Trivia: (Apologies for shitty wording)
The 2019 Houston Astros were the first team to go an entire season without registering an instance of this team pitching stat (kept since 1955). That is, the team registered a 0 for the stat for the entire season. What is the stat?
Intentional Base on Balls
I know you're just messing around, but the Astros aren't without their holes. Their bullpen is not deep at all, and they will have to rely on their starters to go deep into games.Astros should sweep their way to a title.... Not doing so would be a disservice to excellence
Yeah somehow didn't know he was with the Angels for 30 yearsDefinitely. He was Sciocia's bench coach out there and is a big LA guy.
Cool ass dude and he's going to have a pretty good checkbook along with the league's best player.
They definitely do, Maddon is honestly a sign to me that they're trying to rectify that.Yeah somehow didn't know he was with the Angels for 30 years
For Trout's sake, it would be cool to see that team actually compete for once. Seems like they have systematic issues that go beyond a MLB manager's reach though.
