QUICK HITS PRESENTED BY TEXAS STAR GRILL SHOP

Let's take a look at who's to blame for the Astros current predicament

​The Houston Astros struggled to get the bats going in Game 4 of the ALDS, and Justin Verlander had an underwhelming start which put Houston behind from jump street.

Many fans are blaming A.J. Hinch for starting Verlander on short rest, but that's not why the Astros lost the game.

ESPN 97.5's Charlie Pallilo and Raheel Ramzanali share their thoughts on who deserves the most blame for the Astros having to play an elimination game against the Rays on Thursday. Quick Hits is presented by Texas Star Grill Shop.
