    #Texas Rangers What did you think of Allard last night? Looks like he had a good start looking at the boxscore. I wanted to tune in for some but wasn't able to.

    Probably. I think Allard was written off a little early and Braves over paid for Martin. I'm not sure Allard was going to be given a chance in Atlanta though, so I am glad the Braves got something that could potentially help.

    He touched 95 and was working 92-94 with his fastball. Had some good movement and struck quite a few guys out. If he can improve his control he could be really good. Nice first start.

    Braves trading for Melancon and his 14 mil contract next year is so bad.

    Lol the Braves just gave up 4 runs in the 9th then lost in the 10th. That’s so bad

    Prob should have traded for vasquez

    So, uh, the Braves bullpen is significantly worse after adding Greene, Melancon, and Martin. None of them can get outs.

    I didn't realize they picked up all that money until the middle of this week when someone mentioned it on MLBN. That's insane.

    Adding bullpen arms at the deadline is such a crap shoot and I don't understand why teams still pay such a premium. The Tigers traded for relievers every year at the deadline and none of them ever worked out. Now, in the last three years, they've dealt Justin Wilson and Shane Greene in the middle of good seasons and they've both completely tanked as soon as they went to their new teams.

    He was dominant to start the season. Seemed like he was getting hit more the last couple months, but the Tigers suck so he rarely pitched. His velo is down this year compared to past years, but that can mean different things.

    He's just really inconsistent. His ERAs the last four years are 5.8, 2.7, 5.1 and 2.2 (this year).

    I'm not shocked at all that Castellanos got dealt and is suddenly an elite hitter, or that Greene got dealt and he suddenly sucks. It's kind of what I expected to happen for both, although Greene being this bad is a bit of a surprise.

    I feel like an echo starting sentences with “not a good look for the AL” but leaving Lugo in for a 2nd inning instead of Edwin Diaz getting the 9th in a one run game says a lot! #FragileALBoy

    Houston is unfair. Correa could be top 5 in the MVP if he could ever stay healthy and he's batting 6th right now. Gurriel has an OPS over 1.100 since the start of July and he's hitting 7th. They were hitting 4-5 when Houston won the title in 17.

    And no big deal, they also have probably the two best SPs in the AL + another top 10ish guy in Greinke + the 2nd-best bullpen ERA in the AL + arguably the best defense in the AL.

    Other than that, not a whole lot going on for Houston right now.

    Third HR of the night for Alvarez on a 55-mph ephus pitch by a position player; think he had already placed his front leg back on the ground by the time he actually swung
