    All series talk goes in here. Non series talk goes somewhere else. No PVP, that can be found from other sources if you need it. All games are broadcast on Root Sports unless otherwise noted.

    4-17 Jesse Chavez RHP vs. Charlie Morton RHP 7:10

    4-18 Ricky Nolasco RHP vs. TBA 7:10

    4-19 JC Ramirez RHP vs. TBA 7:10

    4-20 Matt Shoemaker RHP vs. TBA 1:10

    Hinch should announce the starters for the rest of the series soon. Oddly enough MLB's site has Charlie Morton starting every game in this series.

    Wow... no lefties?

    Looking forward to the Astros bats waking up at home as well.... one underrated change of the MMP CF is the the batters eye is totally new, which does cause some changes to guys who were used to things being a certain way at the plate (mainly looking at Altuve, who looked like a new man on the road).

    I'm guessing all of the TBA's mean they are gonna skip Fiers or Musgrove and go with Kuechel on his regular rest.

    Just ready for it to start. Had withdrawals yesterday afternoon with no baseball to watch! Rox helped it out a little but last night gut good gracious I am glad baseball season is back in full swing.

    That was what Hinch was deciding. He had not made a decision yesterday about pushing people back or skipping people.

    Me too, especially after expecting to see one and having it postponed. While I am following the Rockets, I am finding myself more excited about the Astros!

    It's been easy to be more excited about the Stros considering the Rockets have been playing largely meaningless ball for the last 3 weeks. Astros were easy priority viewing.

    But not now. I love the Astros, but they are relegated to commercial check ins on Wednesday, it's playoff time.

    WWWL. Worried Shoemaker will dominate. But I guess it depends who's on the bump on our side

    Great having baseball back.

    The shock from having a game postponed makes an "off" day seem longer.


    Correa's non-injury is a blessing.

    Still no Correa. Assuming it is completely pre-cautionary.

    I'd like to see Bregman at SS and see how he does.

    Said the same thing yesterday in the A's thread. I'd love to see Yuli at 3rd, Breggy at SS and MarGo at 1st. I know Hinch is just being consistent and not teasing those guys but c'mon its the perfect opportunity for Yuli and Breggy to play their natural positions. Besides is MarGo really a better SS than Bregman?

    Berman's tweet said Correa felt discomfort swinging the bat.

    You're right. I see that now. Will be interesting to see how he does, he's been a stud at SS when he played there his whole career.
