    I’m sure Craig Biggio would be delighted to be the third base coach.

    I really don't understand this statement...unless you're one of those people that find the "Calvin peeing on x" window stickers funny.

    Exciting inning there... I always love when we play Oakland on the road for some reason. Old-school baseball.

    To be fair, 410' would barely clear most centerfield fences, if it had been center ;)
    He had like 1 HR a month ago.

    Most everyone who realizes baseball is a 162 game season.

    I'll believe it's full-blown once it happens at home. Rhymed without tryin

    Stros struggled at home early last season too, then improved. But if they're able to better last year's production, they might finish statistically on-par with last season's overall (home and away) production.

    Correa's approach tonight so much better than it was pre-injury. Aggressive early in count, work off of that.

    Seems the built-up energy from his small vacation has increased his aggressiveness/urgency.

    This might explain his good postseason/late-game success. Those situations increase his urgency.

    Would be interesting seeing his stats regarding swing-frequency and results during playoffs and late-game vs other situations.

    Correa's first error since last season, Sept 19th.

    He's improved notably since his rookie.
