    Astros at Cardinals July 26-28



    Fri, Jul 26 • 8:15 PM EDT
    At Busch Stadium
    TV: FS-M, ATT SportsNet-SW


    Jose Urquidy
    RHP
    1-0, 5.54 ERA, 17 SO
    This will be the fourth career start for Urquidy, who earned his first win on Saturday vs. the Rangers, when he allowed one run in seven innings. He's the second Astros pitcher to strike out at least nine with no walks within his first three games.
    Jack Flaherty
    RHP
    4-6, 4.24 ERA, 122 SO
    Flaherty struck out seven Reds in a scoreless outing on Sunday, though he went just 4 1/3 innings and earned a no-decision. However, he's reached seven innings in three of his past six starts. His last win came on May 14 against the Braves.
    Sat, Jul 27 • 7:15 PM EDT
    At Busch Stadium
    TV: FS-M, ATT SportsNet-SW, FS1


    Gerrit Cole
    RHP
    11-5, 3.03 ERA, 205 SO
    Cole is second-fastest player in Major League history to reach 200 strikeouts in a season, doing it in 133 1/3 innings. He leads the Majors with 205 strikeouts and strikeouts per nine innings (13.5) and is 7-0 with a 2.03 ERA in his last 11 starts.
    Daniel Ponce de Leon
    RHP
    1-0, 2.82 ERA, 44 SO
    Ponce de Leon scuffled against the Pirates in his past two starts, going fewer than four innings in each. However, he limited the damage on Monday, allowing just one run while tying a career high with four walks.
    Sun, Jul 28 • 2:15 PM EDT
    At Busch Stadium
    TV: ATT SportsNet-SW, FS-M


    Wade Miley
    LHP
    8-4, 3.18 ERA, 100 SO
    Miley carried a shutout into the ninth inning of his previous start Tuesday against Oakland before getting a no-decision. In his last five starts, he's 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA and 0.88 WHIP. He's thrown at least 108 pitches in three of his last four starts.
    Dakota Hudson
    RHP
    10-4, 3.61 ERA, 81 SO
    Hudson leads the team with 10 wins, and his most recent victory provided relief for the Cardinals' bullpen. He worked 6 1/3 innings after four of the prior six starters failed to complete five innings, leading to multiple transactions for fresh arms.

    I'd even take 3-3 and be happy. Play .500 against the great teams, and whoop on teams like the Pirates. That's a 90+ win team.

    If anyone needs to return from injury without their job promised, it's Molina.

    We are
    32-35 in Molina's starts
    17-11 in Wieters starts
    6-1 in Knizner starts

    Molina has caught 7 out of 20 would be base stealers in 572 innings (1 attempt every 28 innings)
    Wieters has caught 6 out of 13 would be base stealers 270 innings (1 attempt every 20.6 innings)
    Knizner has caught both would be base stealers in 63 innings (1 attempt every 31.5 innings)

    Molina is hitting - .261/.280/.368 - 70 wRC+ - -0.2 fWAR
    Wieters is hitting - .237/.294/.500 - 102 wRC+ - 0.3 fWAR
    Knizner is hitting - .154/.214/.346 - 43 wRC+ - -0.2 fWAR


    Statcast fielding

    Framing - Molina -1 run
    Wieters - -3 runs
    Knizner - -1 run

    Average pop time
    Molina - 1.97 seconds
    Wieters - 2.02 seconds
    Knizner - 2.07 seconds

    DRS
    Molina - -1
    Wieters - +1
    Knizner - -1


    There is just no reason to force him to have the job back


    But, he does have the best xWOBA among hitters. But his defense hasn't been that much better to justify the automatic start. He needs to share playing time with Wieters, like Carpenter does with Edman.

    What an awful home plate umpire.


    When both teams are yelling at you, you aren't doing a very good job.

    He threw Aaron Boone out last week for telling him to fix his **** lol

    If you go back and watch that game, Boone was right to yell at the guy. The calls were inconsistent and not over the plate.

    That is awesome, first place to ourselves, Goldie has homered in 5 straight.

    This is a team that can win and win in the playoffs. We've had some holes, but man, Goldie cleaning it up makes up all the difference.

    Still want to see the rotation take that next step, though they have started to look that way. If Carpenter and Molina can come back to their normal selves from their injuries, we are really good, really fast.

    We are def buyers at the deadline today. For those that insisted that we sell back in May, are you happy we didn't?

    Same. Max effort, lack of command. Though, he clearly gets the results (usually).
