    remember when the first 3 batters nailed Verlander's pitches, and he got lucky on the liners to Marwin? It happens, even on good nights.

    Verlander was incredible. Giles closed the door. Great win. Bats will come back to life soon.

    Oof, I'd be pissed if was Philips. Looked like he had a good case that he was assisted off the base by Correa. I'm not sure there's any rule to actually cover that, though.

    If this is a playoff game there is no way Verlander leaves the game.

    Carlos with a little extra pressure on tag. I like it. I like it a lot. Great win.

    I like the idea of eliminating the whole bullpen. Just the starter and closer. Screw u guyz in the bullpen. Goin' home.

    i've always said that's an awful rule. there's no way of accounting for the impact that a defender's glove has on the momentum of the sliding player.

    that said, what a dumb slide by phillips. pop up slide on the edge of the bag in that crucial situation...dumb.

    Verlsander is a stud. Dudes swinging Junk has its own zip code as it drags on the floor behind him. What a beast and yea. Game one after Keuchals meltdown the other day.

    They better. These guys can't hit if they were swinging telephone poles right now. And yea. Carlos Beltran is as useful as a fart in the wind.

    Beltran is likely not in the lineup for game 1 of the playoffs:

    Springer
    Reddick
    Altuve
    Correa
    Bregman
    Marwin (1b)
    Yuli (DH)
    McCann
    Maybin/Marisnick (CF)

    *scrawls in crayon on construction paper like a child*

    "Dear Justin Verlander,
    You are the coolest. When I grow up, I want to be just like you. (Well, okay, you're just a little more than a year older than me, but you get the sentiment.) *draws a smiley face baseball*

    Please, teach all the Astros pitchers how not to fall apart physically, mentally, and emotionally, but instead to be hardy, poised, and professional like you. Also the batters, please. You're the best. *draws stern-looking Verlander stick figure*

    Love,
    SemisolidSnake from bbs.clutchfans.net" *gold star stickers EVERYWHERE*
