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

    9-30 Brad Peacock, RHP vs. Daniel Wright, RHP 9:05

    10-1 TBA vs. TBA 8:05

    10-2 TBA vs. TBA 2:05

    Neither team has named pitchers for the Saturday or Sunday games.

    Hopefully we can get an umpire controversy out of these last few games to provide some entertainment. This could decide the MVP.

    It would be nice to get the sweep and match last years win total. That aside, their isn't much to gain or lose at this point other than Altuve's batting title which may already be won.

    Already turned most of my attention to the offseason and the Rockets.

    Sigh...what a disappointing season. Officially meaningless series, although the last few have kind of felt like dead year walking. A few statistical tidbits to watch, Springer 30 HR, Correa and Altuve 100 RBI. And possibly matching last year's win total.

    Then of course there is there is Correa and Springer's hotly contested OPS race. I swear the 2 of them have been within 15 points of each other all year.

    Right now, Astros stand with the 16 pick of the MLB draft before free agency. This position is probably as high as they can go in the draft just based of the standings. Maybe Hinch plays a lot of the young guys against the Angels.

    In other news, the Tal Hill renovation has me hype for next year. Minute Maid Park will have a better look comestic wise and it should be a better hitter friendly park. Fences will be brought in 27 feet closer from center field.

    For a team with huge question marks at pitching.... this is not really a good thing.

    That fast start for Gurriel is a thing of the past.

    Angels gonna finish with more wins against us, than us against TEX.

    We lived off beating them, then died by them during the 4-gamer last week with maybe the 2 worst b2b losses I can remember regular season.

    Astros showing progress. Castro didn't argue the final strike that went down the middle.

    Didn't see the game. I see that worthless punk Reed went 0-3 with 2K's. His trade value must be diminishing by the day.

    Castro may be gone. If Luhnow can get a 1st Rd pick for him he will do it.

    He is a perfect 4th or 5th outfielder.

    Castro, at this point, is replaceable. I'd rather have Chainsaw behind the plate.

    5th no doubt. He gives it his all, just not that talented on offense.

    Funny thing, the Astros only carry 4 OFs.
