Father of the blog, Chip Bailey sent me a note with the following link and a suggestion it might make a good subject to for my next post. It involves minor league rankings.
He has been on the Astros’ fans radar since before the draft of 2015.
The last time the Astros saw the A’s back in early April…..er……August they were coming off of road series against the Dodgers and D’Backs that had dropped them from 1/2 game up in the division to 2-1/2 games back of Oakland.
Ironically, the Astros crossed the halfway mark of the season midway through an unexpected and unscheduled doubleheader on Tuesday night. Those are the perfect adjectives for this craziest of baseball seasons – unexpected and unscheduled. Rather than go through a bunch of full-year projections today, the theme will be to throw out some random thoughts going forward.
The Astros have taken on the 2020 season like a drunken sailor walking down the street trying to look sober. They take a few solid steps, followed by uncontrollable stumblebum toddling.
In the Astros off-season, the Astros potential rotation for 2020 looked something like this.
Even with a reduced schedule this season, specific numbers are easy to interpret while others are not.
