The following is not intended in any way to cast aspersions on or to ridicule Yankees fans. If the Astros’ front office had decided to stand pat and the Yankees would have made all the upgrades that the Astros made, TCB would have lit up even redder than this. The point of this article is to give us perspective on just how lucky we are as Astros fans to have the kind of organizational leadership that we do.
Yankees reaction to the Aaron Sanchez trade (before Greinke was announced)
Aaron Sanchez to Astros— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) July 31, 2019
LOL Astros. The American League is over
The Astros are gonna turn him into a Cy Young contender
Next years Cy Young winner: Aaron Sanchez.
Wow, unless there is a move we haven’t heard yet, I am very pissed.
can’t put into words how pissed I am
Greinke trade announced
WHOA. GREINKE TO ASTROS???
American League pennant is absolutely over. Right now.
We did absolutely NOTHING. Our pitching staff is hell in a handbasket at the moment.
Astros got two pen pieces plus GREINKE on top of what they already have.
How the hell are we beating Verlander, Cole, and Greinke in a series?
Verlander, Cole and Greinke will own Stanton at the dish
We have to pray our offense scores 6+ runs a game in the playoffs
We have to pray our starters reverse course and start pitching to their expected levels
We have to pray Sevy and Betances come back at their all-star levels
We have to pray our bullpen is burnt out by beginning of September
We have a lot praying to do if we want to win the World Series this year
Grienke to Houston… what a disaster… honestly no point to watch this team anymore.. Their 4 starter is better than our best pitcher lol..
“...honestly no point to watch this team anymore..”
Bye, bye. Good luck with St. John’s basketball this year.
great job cashman
love all the talk from back when they were in London about him being on his phone all the time…. for what ? for this? for a freaking A level player while your biggest obstacle gets Greinke??
what an embarrassment
Astros Coaches are Evil Geniuses
Well Grienke isn’t that great in the playoffs
ERA over 4
Be honest, by the time Houston’s coaches get through, he’ll have 2.50 ERA
He’s going to be throwing 98 by October for sure.
they are slathering him in pine tar as we speak.
The Astros are the new EVIL EMPIRE
Sox fan here
How despicable is it that neither one of our teams tried to improve this deadline? I can’t believe this
For once we are in absolute agreement. I’m furious
The Final Word
Your 2019 leaders in WHIP:— Jayson Stark (@jaysonst) July 31, 2019
1-Justin Verlander 0.81
2-Zack Greinke 0.94
5-Gerrit Cole 1.00
That's your Game 1-2-3 starters in Houston. Scary.
Here’s Jomboy’s reaction. (warning, explicit language)
