    Talk about the series here. Please no PBP in this thread. Unless otherwise noted all games are on CSN-H (for about 40% I guess).

    4-5 Dan Straily vs. Brad Peacock 7:10

    4-6 Bartolo Colon (who looks 60 in his mlb.com photo) vs. Erik Bedard 6:10

    4-7 Brett Anderson vs. Bud Norris 1:10

    Bud Norris will probably start. Didn't they say on opening day Bedard would be skipped in the rotation, because of the off days?

    Hopefully that is all it is, but Tags tweet does worry me.

    Who could ever choke Jeff Luhnow?

    Can't really blame somebody for chocking Ed Wade.

    Little tidbit . . .2012 and 2011, worst years in Astros history, the team was never shut out in back to back games . . .July of 2010 last time that happened

    So it isn't "just" the strikeouts to worry about from the first three games . . .

    LWL. Colon sucks and can't even K a ton of Astros + Bud will show he's solid on the road this year!

    Anderson will dominate. Straily will do what every young 1st time starter seems to do vs the Astros...esp w/the K's mentioned above

    Marlins are 0-3 with only 1 run scored.

    And they have Giancarlo Stanton.

    Over.

    The good news is his Major league K/9 numbers have been way down from his minor league numbers.

    The bad news is our team is filled with minor league hitters. :eek:
