Astros 7, Ramírez 2, Guardians 1
- José Ramírez fouled off nine pitches and then hit a home run.
- Zach Plesac, who is not out of options, gave up 7 runs in Houston. The Guardians bullpen gave up zero.
Regarding the sport of baseball
- Jacob deGrom is progressing in distance and could get on a mound this weekend.
- Aroldis Chapman was placed on the IL.
- Some elderly men have started pitching careers recently.
- I think Rachel Balkovec should be commissioner, and Rob Manfred should try managing the “Tampa Tarpons.”
- If Hammy’s story last night about Framber Valdez was right and curveballs hiss, it should have been easier for hitters to ID them in crowdless 2020?
- When will Rob Manfred ban long plate appearances?
- Does Terry Francona realize Zach Plesac is not Pedro Martinez?
Sports, it was stuck to.
