WBC 2023

Can’t believe Lopez didn’t go to Alvarado there. I mean, Alvarado has also been known to give up the occasional moonshot in a high leverage spot, but still.

Name one time.

And provide video evidence.

I don’t know where the top of the zone is. Neither does the HPU.

José Altuve went out to the dugout to congratulate Luis Arráez. He has a splint that is immobilizing his finger. It will continue to be evaluated and the #Astros will announce the diagnosis.

Rosenthal says possible broken thumb.

To the bottom of the ninth. Pressly in to pitch to the Rambler, the Gambler, and the Back-Biter.

…and he cuts them down! USA wins 9-7. On to the the semi-final vs Cuba.

Trade for Gurriel to play 2B?


I’m worried about ligaments. Let’s hope it’s just broken.

Gurriel is gone. Hensley or Julks.

Maybe I was not serious.

If Altuve is out for an extended period of time, the Astros may make a run at Jurickson Profar, according to Michael Schwab.

Is there some reason why we think Schwab has some insight here? This just looks like Twitter fluff to me.

I’m not sure how much direct insight he has. I only shared it because he covers the Astros.

That took all of what, 10 minutes?

Allegedly a thumb not finger, and I just hope it’s ok.

Thumbs fucking suck.

Hearing broken thumb, 8-10 weeks. Interested to see who plays 2B today if we have a ST game.

Hensley’s at 2B in the posted lineup.

Hensley or Dubon come on down. One of them needs to run with the job until Jose returns.
