So I was going to write a bunch of thoughts about the Texans, but Brien O’Donal saved me the trouble. So go read his recap of the first Texans pre-season game HERE.
Now let’s talk Astros for a moment. You should be close to being in full on panic mode…but not yet. Here are some times you should feel free to panic:
- If Dallas Keuchel pitches like crap in his next outing, go ahead and panic.
- If Lance McCullers is on the DL in September, freak out!
- If they don’t go get Justin Verlander, start throwing a fit.
- If this team is all healed up and 100%, and still playing like this? LOSE YOUR ****!
Otherwise, calm down.
MLB PLAYERS WEEKEND
Aug 25-27 has been announced as “MLB Players Weekend”.
Yeah, I didn’t know what the hell that was either, but according to MLB.com “MLB and the MLB Players Association announced jointly on Wednesday that Players Weekend will be a player-focused field festival of sorts, different than anything seen before at the top rung of the sport. In addition to nicknames on the backs of jerseys made by Majestic, players can wear and use uniquely colored and designed spikes, batting gloves, wristbands, compression sleeves, catcher’s masks and bats.”
If you’re wondering, here are the Astros uniforms with each player’s nicknames:
As for the uniforms? I like the colors, but I’m not a fan of the hat. Looks dumb.
Here are a few nicknames from around the league that really made me laugh:
Josh Phegley going with “PTBNL,” a.k.a. “Player To Be Named Later” is so damn funny, but Kyle Seager wins with the hilarious idea to just own the fact that everyone knows who his brother is (Dodgers star Corey Seager), but few know who he is.
