It's the Astros so the catch is they are moving minor league players into orphanages and kicking the kids out.

This for my justices slingin' thangs, rib breakin' kings / Truck, necklace, robe, gavel and things / For the solicitors seein' them dissents spin and grin / That robe with the lace trim that win.

The idea that the Astros PR team is capable of doing anything without making whatever situation horrendously worse feels weird.

I don't think I've ever seen a catcher as bad at framing as Kurt Suzuki is. There were so many borderline pitches in the Astros series where he could have easily given the pitcher a strike, but he would consistently move the ball away from the center of the zone.

It is unbelievable how bad he is and how many pitches on the black he takes away with stabbing motions and sweeping the ball out of the zone. He also can't hit worth a poo poo.

Baseball Savant has him 53rd of 58 in pitch framing extra runs and 49th of 58 in strike rate, so somehow there are catchers even worse than him. Two of them are the Orioles catchers. Stassi is above average in both metrics but he has been on the IL twice already this season.

This is the entire case for keeping the dropped third strike rule and I find it extremely compelling https://twitter.com/mike_petriello/status/1392666480517464064?s=21
