Astros, Full Seam Ahead

Mariners navigate through Astros

  • May 7, 2024

In the latest episode of the Full Seam Ahead podcast, Lorenzo Delgado and Angel Cantu break down how the Astros dropped two of three against the Mariners. The Astros won the first game against the Mariners.

However, the ‘Stros lost back to back games and dropped the series against a tough Mariners pitching staff. 

Delgado and Cantu start the show recapping the M’s series. The boys give a shoutout to Jon Singleton for having an excellent homestand. Right-handed pitcher Hunter Brown struggled once again in his start. Would Brown be a better fit in the Astros’ bullpen?

The Astros’ bullpen has had a horrendous start to the season. In Major League Baseball, the Astros rank 27th in fWAR (-0.5), 20th in ERA (.444 ERA), last in saves (3), 21st in earned runs (64), and 19th in WHIP (1.38). The back end of the bullpen was shaky in the series finale. The guys break down Bryan Abreu and Josh Hader’s pitch selection in critical matchups.

Astros offense among the best

Furthermore, the Astros’ offense has performed at an elite level. They lead the AL in batting average (.259 BA), and hits (305). In addition, they’re ranked second in OBP (.326), OPS (.735), and SLG (.409) in the AL. In order for those numbers to continue to rise, Yordan Alvarez, Alex Bregman, and Yainer Diaz have to produce with runners in scoring position (RISP).

Is there discussion on possibly changing the lineup again?

In his 1,700th career game, Jose Altuve joined Hall of Famers Willie Mays, Paul Molitor, Roberto Alomar and Derek Jeter with a .300 career BA, 2,000 hits, 400 doubles, and 300 stolen bases. We elaborate more about the future Hall of Famer.

The guys find out “Who’s invited to the Carne Asada!” Who’s bringing the meat? They highlight the players who contributed during the series. Catch the pitching preview as the Astros travel to the Bronx to clash against the Yankees.
